30-Minute Low Impact Cardio

This 30-minute low impact cardio workout is perfect if you have sensitive knees, or your bladder can’t handle the jumping, or you are simply tired of your boobs bouncing around when you do.

I pee when I jump

Leaking when you exercise is actually very common, and can happen to everyone from casual weekend warriors to serious athletes.

This “leaking” is known medically as stress continence, and happens especially during workouts that included a lot of jumping.

With stress incontinence, the sphincter pelvic muscles, which support the bladder and urethra, are weakened and the sphincter is not able to prevent urine from flowing when pressure is placed on the abdomen . such as when you cough, laugh, lift something heavy, or during certain forms of exercise such as running and jumping.

To avoid this you need to strengthen the deep core muscles, as well as the diaphragm and the pelvic floor .

So, strengthening these three is critical to decreasing or eliminating the severity of the stress continence.

15-Min Lower Body Foam Roller Workout

15-Min Lower Body Foam Roller Workout

Foam Roller Routine

I have found people fall into two camps when it comes to foam rolling.

Camp A, know about foam rolling and do it as regularly as they can.

Camp B, have heard of foam rolling, but they just aren’t quite sure why they need to do it.

What is foam rolling?

Foam rolling is a form of myofascial release, which is just a fancy word for releasing muscle tightness and trigger points, or “knots”, in the muscles.

It’s been used for years by professional athletes and therapists, and now can be found in gyms and studios throughout.

Rolling is likened to the “poor person’s” massage and a regular romp with your roller will help prevent injuries, improve your spinal alignment and posture, and increase your flexibility and mobility.

Tips When Rolling

  • Keep your rolling slow and controlled.
  • Move in multiple directions, don’t just roll up and down and down and up.
  • Add side-to-side movements, cross-friction and flexing and extending of the joint being rolled.
  • Roll for 30-60 seconds an area.
  • Use your arms and legs to help move your body and roll the roller.
  • Rolling a muscle may be a little painful, however, you don’t want to be screaming in pain. Rolling too hard on the muscles will activate the muscle spindles causing more muscle tightness. Not our goal with rolling.
  • Don’t roll right on a joint, keep ti soft tissue only.
  • Do not roll along the spine – again, avoid bone, hit flesh 🙂

Holidays

Loving husband, Bella and I just got back a couple of weeks ago from an epic trip through the Rockies.

We stayed at Canmore for 6 nights and hiked around the Canmore area, as well as Lake Louise, Yoho National Park and Banff.

From there we went to Kicking Horse for a couple of nights and finished it all off with a 2 day visit at Sun Peaks.

We got in a lot of hiking and saw some of the most spectacular scenery.

If you have not been to any of these area, you gotta baby!

15-Minute Booty Lift Workout

OMG, this workout was kind of a disaster.

From a sore mouth (from dental surgery the week before), to feeling like I’m talking like I have a mouthful of marbles in my mouth throughout the whole workout, to the mic falling off the camera during filming, to my hard drive getting what Apple said is similar to us humans getting a “cold”after I uploaded the video.

(And this “cold” my computer caught meant that I needed to give it some oil-of-oregano-and-echinacea love in the form of resetting my hard drive to factory settings and then migrating my data, piece-by-piece [cue Kelly Clarkson] back onto it.)

Whew.

Getting this workout to you was harder than filming the damn thing.

However, sadly, all that BS was as good for my posterior as the actual workout was.

Sigh.

Why can’t running from problem to problem be as good as an actual workout?!?
