LETS TALK FITNESS: ABS & PLYO


SPORTS BRA: ALBION FIT
PANTS: ALBION FIT (so comfortable!)
SHOES: NIKE VIA NORDSTROM
ON SALE HERE, HERE, HERE

Hey guys!  Hope you love/hate this work out haha.  It is so hard with the plyo exercises thrown in there, but that is the reason it makes it such an incredibly good work out in such a short time.

Round 1- 3 rounds
Ball crunch twist 20 each side x3
High Snees 45 seconds

Round 2- 3 rounds
Holding ball reaching crunches 20 each side x3
Burpees 45 seconds

Round 3- 3 rounds
Twisting side to side half v ups 10x3
Jumps Squats 45 seconds

Round 4- 3 rounds
Single leg tuck 10x3
Mountain Climbers 45 seconds

I have received a lot of questions on what I do everyday for my work outs.  I started doing exercises like this one a few months ago, and have seen extreme results just by working out for 30-45 minutes 5-6 days a week.  I usually do these kinds of exercises 2-3 days a week and then just a quick run and weight lifting on the other 2-3 days a week.  You always want to give yourself a resting day.  If you are sore, just take it easy and try not using those same muscles for a minute.
You want to focus on two muscles groups a day.  Each of those muscles should be getting three different exercises.
For example this is how my week is usually planned out.
Monday- Abs & Arms (biceps & triceps) + running 20 mins
Tuesday- Back & Chest + running 20 mins
Thursday- Shoulders & Plyo
Friday- Rest
Saturday- Legs
Sunday- Running or hiking

Subscribe to my YouTube channel HERE, for more work outs!

Alright, so back to this work out, do each of those rounds 3 times if you can!  Try and at least do 2 rounds of each of those.  You can easily do this from home while your babies are napping, or before, or after you go to work.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and I would be happy to answer them!
Have a great day!

Happy Tuesday!
Hope your all having a great week so far.  I just got back from Lake Powell, so I am busy trying to get back in the swing of things.  I am so sad to be back from my favorite place, but excited to start a new week and show you what I have in store.

I have a thing for crochet lately, so I attached all the looks similar to this one below.  This is a very laid back look, and probably one of my favorite shoots.  It was nice to take a break from heels, and walking to this lovely comfortable couch with no shoes.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Hi everyone!!
I have been drawn to black pieces lately.  Mostly because I told myself that I needed to start buying more staples to wear more then once.  I have a tiny problem with buying whats so cute now and trendy and then I am not able to wear it again!  So I made it a goal to keep buying neutral staples.  So far it's been great.   The best thing to invest in is good quality items that you can wear every season.

Have a great day!
