Six Moves to a Sexy Summer Body (for a tighter tummy and sculpted arms!)

Six Moves to a Sexy Summer Body (for a tighter tummy and sculpted arms!)

https://vimeo.com/221152307 This is not a beginner workout, but it can be great for either intermediate level exercisers all the way thru advanced fitness levels.  I'm a huge proponent for doing at least 1 workout a week outside where you can GET AWAY from the mirrors, the piped in music, the sweaty equipment and most of all, get away from the self-judgement and comparison to others! For this workout, all you need is enough room to move side to side about 10 feet or more. No Judgement and No Comparison Zone: Some people thrive on physical competition.  Most people don't.  It's more of a slap in the face for many.  When you use my workout templates all under the workout->videos tab, I truly hope hope you do them in a space that relaxes you and gives you enjoyment.   Not in a gym with you watching what others are doing and subconsciously wondering if they are judging you back. You'll see most of mine are at my favorite park in L.A.  It's one of my "happy spaces."  I can pretty much guarantee that the mood you will be in after one of my outdoor workouts will far exceed a workout you do in your bedroom or living room following along to a full length workout video.   Put on your headphones, go thru each of the exercises with me to get the muscle memory, then take it on your own!    ...
Outdoor Workouts Rule!  Especially in a Nice Neighborhood Park.  Here’s a Great One!

Outdoor Workouts Rule! Especially in a Nice Neighborhood Park. Here’s a Great One!

I've been a gym rat for a long time.  There's no doubt a well stocked gym can keep a gym rat like me occupied for a few hours at least.  But, getting outside in nature is literally a whole other world.  Outdoor workouts just feel different.  They can be kick ass hard core or relaxing.  When you take your workout  outside to a beautiful park, you'll feel your energy is on a whole other level.  It's more calming without fluorescent lights, mirrors and people with poor spacial judgement getting up in your zone.  And, you don't have to "work in" with anyone. The best part is, you don't need anything when you get your fitness on in a park.  Here are some creative lower and upper body exercises that only require a sturdy picnic bench.  You can do any of these exercises for time or for reps.  Enjoy, and let me know what you think of these moves! https://vimeo.com/205630209...
20 Minute Workout with Tabata Super Sets (Cuz they’re more fun that way!)

20 Minute Workout with Tabata Super Sets (Cuz they’re more fun that way!)

Tabata Super Sets?  Got 20 Minutes?  This can be better than a 45-minute workout! If you give this 20-minute workout your all, and it will be better than a 45 minute half-assed or comfort zone endurance workout.  I'm doing Tabatas, but as a super set.   That means instead of doing all 8 rounds of Tabata with the same exercise, I'm alternating between 2. In this video I give you 5 great exercises to alternate between for a short, semi-sweet, intense workout you can do almost anywhere!  I do most of these outside and bring my own portable gear. Exercise swap out: Biceps:  If you don't have dumbbells, use resistance bands. Triceps:  If you don't have a Lebert, use dumbbells for overhead presses or a chair / bench for dips. Back:  If you don't have a Lebert Equalizers for rows, use dumbbells for bent over rows or resistance bands criss crossed around your feet for seated rows or bent over rows. Dead lifts:  No sandbell?  No prob.  Use a heavy medicine ball, kettlebells or dumbbells.  Or do jump...
