If It Wiggles and Jiggles You Need To Be Doing This….

The number one question I get asked is: “How do I make my belly (triceps, butt, thighs, or pick your problem spot) tight and firm?”

And here is my answer (and a workout to help get it done)…..

If it wiggles, jiggles, is puffy or bulges, then that is excess fat and excess fat is shed by proper nutrition and cardio (interval preferred). The “toning” or strength training exercises that you do for said problem spot, will build shape, size (if desired), and the overall form of your body.

Let me put it like this; let’s say you have triceps (the back of your arms) that move a little too freely when you move your arms and you start a intense regimen of strength training to firm them up, you can in fact build killer, awesome triceps muscles but if you don’t get the fat that’s actually doing the wiggling and jiggling off the top you won’t really be able to see the fruits of all your labor.

On the flip side, if you only dieted and did cardio and never added any muscle with resistance training, then you would end up with a smaller arm with less fat that jiggles but it would still definitely jiggle.

So you need the trifecta combo of proper nutrition, strength training and interval cardio.

Intervals are actually not complicated at all and there are hundreds of options that you can do right in your own home without any equipment. I show some of them in this 3rd and final clip from our morning show gig last week and I lay the exact workout for you right underneath it.

Wiggle and Jiggle Buster (warm up for 5-7 minutes before)

Quick Feet moving in and out – Tip: keep your feet close to the ground; it’s not a huge lift. You’re really only lifting your heels. Take fast tiny steps out nice and wide past your shoulders and all the way narrow. Keep your knees slightly bent the whole time. You should get your heart rate up and feel a burn in your hips and thighs! -20 seconds

Speed Skaters –30 seconds –Tip: Exaggerate your arm movements. We want to use as many muscles as possible and burn lots of calories.

Single leg deadlift –10 reps on each leg (this is the recovery move. You can also swap it out for a move that targets your personal trouble spot)

Do entire circuit 5 times.

Ok so now for an awesome workout combine all three workouts from the last 2 blog posts and this one into one calorie burning, juggle busting, booty shaping, sexy arms, flat abs workout in about 30 minutes.

Have fun!
