pop-quiz! So what muscles really make up the core? If you said your abdominals you're only 25% right. You have four parts of your core, can you believe it? And 3/4 of your core you probably not even using so let's get down to basics so you can use them and be that stunning pregnant mama I know you are! Your core is made up of your transverse abdominals (TVA), the diaphragm and the pelvic floor (PF). 💥 Bam, bet you didn't know your PF was included! 💥 Send me an email at email@example.com so I can send you the belly breathing techniques and get you started using all of your core!
Hey mama bears! By now you've realized I love toning the arms, and really working that teardrop muscle (also known as your Deltoid) to really give the arms some definition. Another one of my favorite and SUPER easy exercises is the "Ice Cream Scooper". One of the other things you may have noticed is that I use light weights or body weight when toning. I have a dance background and I have a tendency to incorporate light weights with lots of reps. Why do I like doing this? Because while my arms are working, each rep is an opportunity for the rest of my body to be working... you are probably thinking what on earth is she talking about. I am serious each rep, because of the light weight, I can focus on making sure my abdominals are engaged, that I am using my breath, that my legs are working and supporting me, and even include glutes. It's so much more than, get in and get out like with heavier weights. Challenge yourself this hump day with the Ice Cream Scooper 👉 Here is your workout - 15 Modified Push-Ups, 20 Ice Cream Scoopers (using 2 lbs.), 1 minute of tiny Arm Circles, and then another 20 Ice Cream Scoopers. Repeat this set 3x! 😊😘 when you're done sign up for the 7-Day Pregnancy Fitness Challenge! Link in Bio! 😘😘
Strong arms 💪🏼💪🏼, strong mind, strong body! Week 9 and still at it! Small changes daily = results! Getting it done ✅ early 👉🏼 busy day ahead with the last day of school! #earlybird#weights#summerarms#fitover40
Let's talk about one of my favorite warm-ups that also tones and sculpts your arms! Don't you just love the tear drop shape the celebs have on the top of their arms because I do! Not only are arms circles a great way to warm up and open up your shoulders and chest, but these bad babies sculpt as well! 💪 I love to include them in my arm days to really get a "burn-out". Challenge yourself and see if you can do this set: 15 pushups, then 1 minute of tight little circles forward, and then 1 minute of tight little circles backward. Repeat 3x. Want to try something new? With your arms, out like a T, put your thumbs up and rotate your wrist so that your thumb goes from being pointed up to pointing straight ahead. This is one of those exercises that uses body weight to sculpt and tone your arms, no weights no problem! I see those sexy arms for summer! 😘😘
This week of workouts has been CHALLENGING - and I'm in love!❤️I am capable of doing difficult things! I am capable of getting real and lasting results!❤️ I have decided to do ANOTHER round of #SHAUNWEEK if anyone wants to join me!✌🏼✌🏼✌🏼 Workin' on those sexy summer arms!!!!💕💪🏼
#DollDuty |🏋🏻♀️ "Biceps + Triceps". .
Today's workout does not require a lot of time and can be paired with abs. Exercise A) pairs with B) as a super set. Move from A) to B) with max. 5 seconds rest in between, then break for 1 minute in between sets. .
1. TEMPO: 2-3 second negative, powerful concentric.
2. REP RANGE: 12-10
3. SETS: 3 & 2
1. Please keep a proud chest, squeezing shoulder blades together. Chin and head held high.
2. Your elbow is a hinge joint, just like a door hinge. Don't move it front and back, keep it locked and keep tension on the bicep and tricep muscle.
3. Keep tension through the negative, do not let momentum or gravity take control.
4. CORE STRONG! Ribs, belly button, uterus sucked in. WRISTS! Keep them locked up, don't let them flop around. .
1️⃣SUPERSET: A)DB Alternating Curls + B)Overhead Cable Rope Ext. (2 sets). ▪️1A. Elbows locked, start with palms in, and a small twist as you curl/explode up, control the negative and a slight twist again at the bottom. Make sure you don't relax the non-working arm, always keep it engaged. . .
▪️1B. Bring the cable 1-2 notches down from the top. 1 Leg in front and the other behind, bend/tilt at the waist so you are bent over. Bring the elbows up, locked in between your head, extend out, placing tension on the triceps, squeezing at the top then slowly lowering the rope back to the start. Do not change the elbow position.
2️⃣SUPERSET: A) Wide to Narrow Ez-Curl + B)1-Arm Cable Kickback (3 sets): . .
▪️2A. You will be doing 6 reps wide, then 6 narrow, for a total of 12 reps. Keep your wrists folded up towards you the entire time, don't let it flop. Explode up, flex/tense bicep, control the negative, do not fully extend the elbow joint, keep tension on the bicep. . .
▪️2B. Bring the cable halfway down. Don't use an attachment, just hold the ball at the end of the cable. Bring your bicep/elbow up to your side and stick it there. Explode the cable back, squeezing at the top (do not just kick it back and let it fall), control the negative, then drive it back again. .
The sun has been out today and I was almost ready to get out my sleeveless tops! This crazy lady has wrapped her arm - look at the difference! Will be doing mine too! (Although both not just one) #crazybodywrap#bingowings#summerarms
I have to admit, I never imagined I would be doing a work out on a Saturday evening,
but it wasn't even an option to miss today's workout.
I've learned what it's like to be in a commitment to myself. 💟
@chrisdowningfitness you've taken my game to the next level, physically & mentally. 💃💃 Just because I'm a working mom of 4, doesn't mean I can't take care of me. 💁🏼 I am a #shiftshoplifer 🙌😊💪
30 minutes of effort can look so good. I listen closely to every word @autumncalabrese says in her 21 Day Fix workouts because I want to get the most out of those minutes that I can. I am nearly half way done with this round and I'll be darned if that definition I was shooting for didn't decide to start peaking through!! ...
