Image: Good luck on the 1,000 Squats Challenge – you got this!
In my PiYo class every Saturday, we always have a lower body section of the class where we bust out about 60-70 squats. This is one of the most challenging parts of the class because the continuous squating motion causes serious muscle fatigue. When I look out at my class I see everyone’s face cringing (they are clearly feeling the burn) and then I give myself a little pat on the back – hehe. Ultimately, squats are the best leg exercise because they engage every leg muscle when done properly. You effectively activate your glutes, hamstrings and quads when performing a squat – talk about an efficient exercise.
That said, I wanted to spread some squat love by creating a 1,000 squat challenge. Each day, you can expect to burn 100 – 150 calories by the doing the reps listed in the Squat Challenge. Let’s take the challenge head on and see our legs become stronger, firmer and sexier. For more intensity, feel free to complete the challenge holding dumbbells in each hand. Share your progress in the comments section below – good luck! xoxo, Brit
Hey gang! I’m starting a new series on GRIT by Brit to get you right and tight for the summer #OperationBeachBody! Every few days I’ll feature a specially designed workout specifically made to get you ready for the beach!
Our first #OperationBeachBody workout comes from my friend, Lavon Washington! Like me, Lavon (pictured below) is native Texan who recently moved to New York City. His passion for fitness and wellness started by playing sports when he was really young and continued as a he was college football player. Now, Lavon competes in body building competitions and does a little fitness modeling as a side hustle to his full time Mergers & Acquisitions career. Above is the fierce leg workout that he did earlier this week and was kind enough to share with us. Try it for yourself to get ready for short shorts this summer!
Hey hey! Here’s a new workout video I made last weekend. It is intense! If you want a 10 minute cardio and abs workout, search no more. Expect to burn ~200 calories and for your abs to be on FIRE! Below is the description of the the workout in case you want to do it on your own without watching the YouTube video. Hope you like and hope you SWEAT!
Lots of luv, Brit 🙂
YO YO YO – Here is the workout I just completed this morning. I threw some new exercises in, so if you get confused, below are some pictures of me doing them to guide you. The total workout should take you about 30 minutes and you can expect to burn ~300 calories in the process.
Only 3 words can describe my Thursday Thigh Burn = BOOTY ON FIRE!
Try it for yourself and let me know how it goes.
CHOOSE to have a great day 🙂
Let me get something straight, BIG thighs do NOT = FAT thighs. You CAN have very sexy BIG thighs as long as they are firm and toned. I hate hearing girls complain to me about their big thighs, which I think look great! Our thigh muscles give us strength, power, explosive movement and stability so let’s appreciate them and treat them well. I challenge you to be happy with what you’ve got and do my Extreme Thigh Burn workout (below) to make your thighs the strongest, firmest and sexiest they can be!
Showin’ off my big, toned, thighs on a night out 🙂
