Workout Wednesday: POP ’em Abs

In ♥ & Soul, Community, Fitness Friday, Health, Home Sweet Home, Public Interest, Relationships, Technology, Travel, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workout Wednesday, Yours Truly on 08/19/2015 at 05:25

Cassey Ho knows how to make fast fab abs, but this Dispo must melt the flab!

Even though I’ve scored a strong core, how can I show it off when the muscles may lay beneath fat layers?

Now I have both Blogilates official DVDs: the Original & Flat Abs Fast!

As I’ve done many techniques to tone up my tummy and slim those obliques, I’ve added this newest DVD to my mix:

 

I swear: I have more than enough exercise moves from Blogilates to last me all year ~ I must make the time to do them!

Cassey Ho took this ab blast to the beach!

This packaged deal promotes 3 10-min. routines:

  • Total core
  • Lower back
  • Obliques

This *oGorgeous* face is *POPpin’* over the place

(: POP Pilates for miles & smiles 🙂

Since I took sabbatical from full-time teaching for my Ph.D., I sculpted my physique through the POP Pilates Craze

POP

I started my Blogilates lifestyle out with the 🎬YouTube🎥 videos and DVD💽 plus app, then 💸shopped💳 the original oGorgeous store🎽, plus now have the 📒book📕 ~ fresh off the presses!

 

So there’s always a reason for the season to stay in shape whatever the weather! 🌾🌅🍂❄️

Let’s do double leg raises!

These will work out not just our legs and lower back, but also our hip flexors as we twist …

We’ll get creative by making shapes.

As we’re laying down, we’ll do the following sequence of 10 per set:

  • Legs together
  • Spiral/tornado up then down
  • Scissor legs ~ spread out then bring back together
  • Draw ♥hearts♥ for Belated ♥Valentine’s♥ Day
  • Draw four-leaf ♣clovers♣ for Early ♣St. Patrick’s♣ Day
St. Patty's Cat

♣St. Pat’s♣ Cat inspiration: Soon-to-Be Bday Girl *ASIA* (in almost 2wks) is chillaxin’ w/♣Good Luck♣ Care Bears ~ we can reward ourselves w/R&R after we work out our legs & core to score! #DISPObustAFlow

Last Workout Wednesday and century, we had VHS

WOV DVD

I’ve always been all about the *DCC* + I actually featured the other 3 DVDs (i.e., pilates, toning) in my fave WOVs on Top 5 gone live!

Now in the 2000s, let’s exercise to these DVDs, if you please!

It came upon watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas tonight here!

IMG_9362.JPG

The Historic Paramount Theatre (Downtown Abilene)

Working out over the HOLYdays🙏 will prevent our tummies from rolling like a bowl full of jelly … As in that of Jolly Ol’ St. Nick! 🎅

IMG_9370.JPG

We were Good Girls this year on Santa‘s List of Nice ~ checking it twice!!

The scene when The Grinch was propped up like a cobra on a ❄️cliff⛄️ at the climax about to crash CHRISTmas🎄 inspired these moves.

On your mats … Get set … Go!

Full Grinch (like Cobra) 🐍 On your belly with legs and toes down, raise your torso with palms down, shoulders back and chest out for 30sec-1min.

Cinch Grinch (like Leap Frog/Burpee) 🐸 From previous position, push yourself up with hands, then jump to your feet. 👣

Ru-dog Rave (like Bunny Hop) 🐰 Just like Grinch’s canine companion who was his Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer sidekick, hold your arms up and hop around!

Inch Grinch (like Inch Worm) 🐛 Just like Grinch’s creeping, you’ll walk on your palms🙌 and toes!

Raise the Sleigh (Shoulder Raise) 💪 Lift something really heavy🎁 (but not to the point of risking your joints) in your arms ~ leading with your knees, NOT your back, then lift overhead!

Cindy Lou Snow Angels (Wave) 👱 Cool down by lying on your back starting with your arms and legs spread out, then bring them together, then wave them out for several reps to loosen up those muscles (just what Martha Way Whovier loved about The Grinch) from the burn through ROAST BEAST MODE!!!

*~* Gym Greetings *~*

Oh yes, and I’d love to rock out Cindy Lou Who’s hair💁 … After pulling off the 🐝beehive🍯 as my Mom the Nurse😷 Graduate🎓 for 🎃Halloween👻, this is my next challenge!
