Repeat! (or repeat twice if you can!) This mini-workout is intended to target different, harder-to-reach parts of your abs (and throws in some arms too!) Also, I like doing exercises for time (instead of counts) so you can go at your own pace, and as you get stronger, you can go faster and faster!
(Descriptions and pics below!) Warning! I am not a credentialed fitness professional! (Just licensed spin teacher!)
First workout post! I am excited but a little nervous to share this!
Fitness has always been a huge part of my life and something I really enjoy. I love pushing and strengthening my body, and appreciate the positive energy I feel when I get moving! I also love sharing my passion for fitness with others. I routinely comprise workouts for friends and family and teach spin class where I convince people they can always do more than they think they can!
Call me a junkie (because I am) but I believe that whenever you push through a tough workout, and you approach a moment when you don’t think you can hang on another second, and then you do, you are breaking through tons of barriers. What positive energy to incorporate into your day!
Anyway, off my soap box. I guess I just want to share my love of fitness with anyone who will listen and have been hesitant to do so on the blog because I never want to induce guilt (if you hate working out, or just don’t want to) or any other negative feelings. I want this blog to be a positive place where you may (or may not) get a good idea or two, but can at least laugh at whatever antics I am currently up to.
Back to business (again)! As much as we would like to only work out 10 minutes a day to get firm tummies, this is the real world and gumdrops don’t grow on trees. (Except maybe in Disneyland.) The good news is that we all have ridiculously ripped abs, just maybe hidden under a few layers of fat! Although I will introduce some ideas for fat-burning workouts, this is not one of them! Just a kick booty ab circuit to strengthen those muscles!
Let me know what you think via the comments section (below) or by emailing me and email@example.com!
Much love to my friends in fitness!
