Monday Motivation and Mindset

Success comes first in the mind.

I’ve been thinking this to myself a lot lately as I tackle training for a physical challenge coming up in less than a month (Tactical Strength Challenge).

There are three things that are a part of the challenge: max number of pullups, maximum weight  you can lift for 1-rep on a deadlift, max number of Kettlebell snatches you can do in 5 minutes.

I’m excited but entirely out of my comfort zone. Like most people, I don’t like to fail.

5 Must-Do Butt Exercises

We all want a nice booty, right? It’s always the best accessory in your clothes, summer or fall.

So here’s the truth: your nutrition does have a LOT to do with the shape of your backside. It doesn’t matter what the condition of your booty is now and what your goal is. In order to make a difference (lift, smaller, more muscle, shape, maybe GET a booty if you currently don’t really have one to speak of….). Nutrition will, in fact, support that goal and help you reach it.

BUT, you also need to throw in some serious resistance training to get some strength and shape (yes, even if you want a smaller bum) and that’s what I’m going to talk with you about today.

Incorporating the following 5 exercises in your regular strength routine will help you burn fat, shape and firm your booty, sculpt surrounding muscle groups, and rev up your metabolism. [Read more…]

Your At Home Ab Workout

I hope you had a great week last week. I was out of touch getting everything set and organized for the Skinny Jeans Transformation Challenge that started on Monday the 2nd. This group of 23 women are SUPER excited and I can’t wait to show you what they get Get flat abs at Booty Boot Campdone in the next 8 weeks.

In addition to their boot camp workouts, I give them quick but intense 20-30 minute workouts to do at home on their days away from camp. This is the one I’m giving them this week (in fact YOU are getting it before them). Print it out and give it a try.

If you are a real beginner (as in this is the first time you will be breaking a sweat in the last 3-6 months or more) only do each circuit 1 time. If you are intermediate, do each circuit 2 times, if you’ve been working out regularly and intensely for 6 months or more try it 3 times.

Print it up and do it 2-3 times this week.

Also, don’t forget to share this link on facebook so your friends can do it to!
