Get set to do push-ups: get on plank position with both palms and sets of toes on the ground ~ narrow arm width to work your triceps or wide for your chest, lower yourself then raise yourself back up.

If my cats are chillaxing on the carpet, then my baseline to meet would be from their spots, and I give them a kiss each time I reach them!

Take a break from studying (like yours truly ~ after working both jobs today and before teaching Religious Ed at Church today) then go low to the ground!

When I had my speech students brainstorm topic ideas today, one suggested speaking on different push-up techniques. Therefore,

Tuesday Beauty: Legs Bare and Grin It!

In Beauty Tuesday, Health, Public Interest, Relationships, Technology, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Yours Truly on 06/04/2014 at 03:25

How do you bare and grin your legs?

Make sure you don’t show hair or dimples!

If you’re like me during this time of year, you prefer to strut your stuff in shorts or skirts.

Solutions: hair removal and cellulite reduction

I’ve had my share of ways to bare, including spa treatment: laser hair removal and cellulite massages.

But what if we can’t afford expense of money or time for those sessions?

Here are my at-home alternatives…

I’ll review this bad boy in 4 weeks, when I’m expected to see results! So far, I savor the sweet scent ~ smells o’so good!

I was disappointed that Jergens discontinued its Naturally Smooth lotion to minimize shaving but am glad that it still produces this for cellulite…

Last, but not least, here’s a no-brainier to blasting cellulite:

Eat less fat!

Yeah, tell that to yours truly who indulges in YOLOs lol…

CHEERS for here’s to smooth sailing this summer!

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!
