My Favorite Ab Workouts

I have found these ab workouts to be the most effective for me! Now, this doesn’t mean someone is going to do this a few times and have abs of steel. Just some ideas to incorporate into your workouts and healthy life style 🙂

25 x Ball Toss

50 x Toe Touches

25 x Push Throughs

25 x Heels to the Heavens

Repeat this set three time! Four times if you’re crazy like me!

BUT REMEMBER! Abs are really made in the kitchen, and only sculpted in the gym! Eating clean and doing cardio will help you see faster results!

The Booty

From Kim Kardashian to J-Lo and more, 2015 is without a doubt the year of the booty. So what if you have been cursed with a fanny as flat as a pancake? Ya squat! Seriously! My behind was always a boney joke for all who knew me, but in less than a few months of hitting the gym I had a backside to be proud of! And you can too!

My favorite booty lifting/forming/toning workouts include weighted donkey bridges, double pulse stationary lunges, weighted glute bridges, and of course… SQUATS! I work my glutes probably 3 times a week and do 4 sets of 15-20 depending on the workout. My last trick is fast walking on a steep incline for my cardio!
I also HIGHLY recommend participating in one of Katy Hearns fitness challenges!

A New Me with the Help of Katy

The start of 2015 had a plethora of changes, ups, and downs; All within the first week. At the time I was heartbroken and didn’t know how I would be able to live a positive life (yes this is about a boy), but after almost 2 months has passed I am happier than ever. For the past four years he has been a great supporter in my life, a best friend, but at the same time he was also very toxic. The day came and he told me I was no longer going to be apart of his life. It was also the same day I signed up for Katy Hearn’s Winter 2015 Fitness Challenge. Unless you are a girl between the ages of 15 and 28 who uses a lot of social media, you probably don’t know who Katy Hearn is.

^Katy Hearn^ is a 23 year old personal trainer, fitness model, and all around amazing woman. She believes in a simple way to get/stay healthy and achieve ones fitness goals; thru a well balanced diet and training in the gym. Yes, training, as in lifting weights. Lifting weights will not make girls bulky and huge if it’s done without any hormones and medication. She targets different muscle areas everyday and adds in cardio every once and awhile. When I acquired my fitness plan and meal guideline I also received the following and support from all the other amazing women partaking in the Winter Challenge. We all started at different levels/ with different goals in mind, but we all have one thing in common, we all want each other to succeed. Having a bad day? In one post on our fitness accounts you will receive over fifty comments and messages of positivity. We are all here to remind each other what Katy has told us:

Yes, my diet is a lot more balanced than it has been in the past. Yes, I have lost weight and my body fat percentage has decreased. Most importantly, my daily happiness has increased. The physical changes are so rewarding and give you that cliche, “I can do this” feeling. You learn to rely on yourself and become more independent. In the words of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde…


Thank you Katy for providing us with this opportunity to improve ourselves in every aspect of our lives 🙂
