Blue hue on cue plus black and brown color block details coordinate well with either neutral shade ~ like on my bday bag ~ & length + any event ~ including my TS midi to Church or work & ultimate presentation maxi to possibly wear (& look dayum good in) on the BiG Day!

Fitness Friday: Sun Buns

☼Sun☼ Out, Buns Out!

In this case, I don’t mean the buns-in-the-oven that I mentioned recently, unless you have one (or more on the way) ~ at which case I suggest that you consult with your physician about the upcoming physical activity!

Once upon a time (a decade ago), someone told me that I have a bubble butt ~ he meant that as a compliment: that my behind looked lifted and firm!

So, our ☼sunny☼, sweaty series goes down to the derierre to round out all of the ☼summer☼ routines!

Bottom Moves to Get YOU into Tip-Top Shape

  • Squats (legs): try variations of stances (wide/plié, hip/shoulder width, narrow) and my 1K challenge!
  • Deadlifts (legs & back): while standing with your legs hip/shoulder width apart and holding your choice of resistance down in front of you close to your body, lower the weight toward your ankles then raise it up to your hips ~ lift with your knees, NOT with your back, and DON’T lock your knees!
  • Clean Press (my personal favorite for legs & shoulders): start at deadlift position, then squat while lifting the weight over your head!
  • Standing Extensions (quadriceps) & Curls (hamstrings): while standing with your legs together, lift one leg directly in front of you (quads/front of your thigh) then bring it behind you (hams/back of your thigh) ~ 3×20 each leg
  • Vic(tory) Kicks: kick your legs up to the sky!

My Beach Babe 3 DVD has arrived!

BB3

My newest addition to my workout DVD collection: Beach Babe 3!

This was my reward for finishing my dissertation research, teaching the first ☼summer☼ session and completing the Fit Fabulous Fierce program!

Before this special delivery from Tone It Up, I downloaded the digital videos (part of my purchase) to my devices:

  • desktop
  • laptop
  • smartphone

K&K have come a long way since I featured them in my Top 5, and added *bonuses* include:

  • call for a beach ball
  • kettlebell & resistance band routines
  • valuable tips clips

Starting today, I now could work out to it on the big screen TV!

TIU!

My TIU collection now is complete … for now!

The opening quote was my Hump Day Affirmation for sure!

Workout Wednesday: Beautify Your Thighs!

Happy April Fools’ Day! Rather than joke and be broke (can’t quit my day job), how about I share the wealth of health?

While styling your hair, you might as well knock multiple birds ~ or in this case, leg muscles ~ with one stone and be bad to the bone* and rock solid!

10-20 reps while you heat-dry or iron each section:

  • squats (alternate sets of narrow, wide, plié)
  • lunges (sets of the same leg, then switch)
  • glute lifts (alternate between each leg)
  • knee raises (alternate between each leg)
  • thigh raises (sets of the same leg then switch)
  • calf raises (both legs at the same time)

Your thighs look like sweet potato pies!

That was a line from my fellow trainer‘s brand-spankin’ new single, 1994

This jam makes me want to dance ~ so now I can get my ♥cardio♥ on!

Workout Wednesday: 2014 Strong & Limber Legs

In Health, Public Interest, Sports, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workout Wednesday on 04/30/2014 at 08:00

Strut your stuff!

‘Tis the time to start baring your legs with shorts, skirts and dresses with higher hemlines and of course swimsuits!

Yesterday, I addressed feet and toes, and now we’re moving our way on up to those limbs attached! This training session will shape up your bottom half by keeping you limber and tightening up your tush so you can show off your stems in these warm days! (20x each)

Full Legs • Calves • Thighs • Butt

Recommended Resistance: wrap around weights for your ankles or resistance bands

Props: mat for laying exercises, stable chair for sitting exercise (leg extension*)

Let’s start our legs with a Squat Series for full leg sequence…
1. Narrow Squats: stand with feet together, squat to sitting position and raise to starting position (20x)
2. Squat Pulses: stand with feet facing forward and legs at hip width, squat low and raise halfway (20x)
3. Plié/Sumo Squats: stand in wide stance with feet facing out at 45* and legs last hip width, squat low and raise all the way up (20x)

Let’s step into our Lunge sets to keep working out our whole legs…
4. Side Lunges: stand in wide stance with feet facing forward, lunge to each side, alternating sides for each repetition (20x per leg)
5. Split Lunge Pulses: bend forward knee at 45* and drop backward knee toward floor one leg at a time, switch sides after set (20x per leg)
6. Lunge Box Step: start side lunge, followed by forward lunge, another side lunge, backward lunge and finish rep with one side lunge, then switch sides (4x per leg x 5 lunges per leg per rep = 20x)

Calves for your Bottom Halves
7. Calf Raises: stand with legs at hip width, start at tippy toes than lean back on ankles (20x)

Thigh Time
8. Leg Extension (quadriceps, top of your thighs): sit down on stable chair, extend legs out, your choice of one at a time per set, alternating sides or both at once (20x per leg)
9. Leg Curls (hamstrings, back of your thighs): stand with legs together OR position hands shoulder width apart and knees on mat, raise one foot at a time toward backside (20x per leg)
10. Leg Abduction (outer thighs): stand with legs together, raise one leg to the same side up to hip level, switch side after set OR lay on one side with legs straight out and lift top leg upward (20x per leg)
11. Leg Adduction (inner thighs): stand with legs together, raise one leg to the opposite side up to hip level, switch side after set OR lay on one side with top leg bent in front of you and lift bottom leg upward (20x per leg)
12. Clam Shell (overall thighs): lay on back with legs raised and heels together so knees face outward, bring knees together (20x)

Wrap up this Round with Your Butt
13. Donkey Kicks (glutes): position hands shoulder width apart and knees on mat, raise flexed foot one at a time toward ceiling while clenching your glutes (20x per leg)
14. Bridge Pulses (thighs and glutes): lay on your back with feet flat and knees together, raise hips while separating your thighs and clenching your glutes (20x)

For more high time for thighs, here’s my Thigh Day Friday post, which I originally shared for the sake of my soccer student’s request for inner thighs!
