TRX Booty Lift & Abs

TRX Booty Lift & Abs

TRX Booty Lift and Abs

I presented this workout to my class back in January and they loved it! It hits all the target points you want to be firm and toned. The:

  • Glutes
  • Hips
  • Hamstings
  • Quads
  • Abs
  • Obliques
  • Deep core muscles

Now, a heads up though.

You must be comfortable with one foot in the TRX for this workout. If you are not, you can perform all the lunges and single leg squats without the TRX. Okay? Okay!

Don’t own a TRX? Then try this leg workout instead – it’s pretty glute and ab focussed too.

Stretches for a Better Night’s Sleep

Stretches for a Better Night’s Sleep

Stretches for a Better Night’s Sleep

If you struggle with falling asleep this is the perfect routine for you. These stretches aim to give you a better night’s sleep.

For 15-minutes I lead you through a series of gentle stretches aimed at releasing all the muscles that get tight on us during day.

You will feel a lightness and a relief throughout the whole body afterwards, setting yourself up for a peaceful deep sleep.

These are the perfect stretches for a better night’s sleep.

A Better Night’s Sleep

Some sleep stats from Statistics Canada:

  • Men sleep less than women. However, that’s a pile of you-know-what at my house.
  • Peri and menopausal women sleep the least out of any age bracket for women.
  • People who work full-time sleep (on average) 24 minutes less than those who worked part-time or not at all.
  • Working in shifts (shift workers) can affect a person’s sleep and health – since the night is the body’s most natural time to heal and rejuvenate.
  • Individuals with a personal income of $60,000 or more sleep 40 minutes less than those who make less than $20,000. Researcher’s believe it’s due to longer working days and commutes.
  • On average married Canadians sleep 24 minutes less than unmarried Canadians.
  • Kids deprive parents of sleep. Individuals who had one child sleep, on average, 17 minutes less than those who don’t, and parents with two children on average 25 minutes (sorry, no data on 3+ more kids).
  • Being stressed for time greatly affects sleep. Canadians who reported feeling highly time-crunched slept almost half an hour less than people who indicated they have a low level of time stress.

If you have problems with sleep I highly recommend these posts I have on the site:

Muscle Confusion Workout

Muscle Confusion Workout

Muscle Confusion Workout

A couple of weeks ago my computer’s hard drive fried on me – right in the middle of formatting this video. I cried. It was sad to see my old friend Mac give it’s breath, and take my work with it.

However, my BFF did not let me down. When I got a new hard drive put in and started the slow process of putting all my files back on the drive lo’ and behold there was the video.

Still there, waiting for it’s final edit. Waiting to be released it into the world.

Well… here you go world, meet one of my new favourite workouts.

Muscle Confusion – All Levels Workout

Loving husband had a ROUGH time with this workout. He was very tired and was wondering, near the end, what he did wrong in life to be saddled up with a personal trainer for a wife.

I, of course, remind him every day that he is damn lucky to have me. And he, of course, rolls his eyes every time.

[bctt tweet=”I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy forever.”]

Tools needed:

  • Weights: light to moderate

15-Minute Total Body Stretch

15-Minute Total Body Stretch

15-Minute Total Body Stretch

When I was younger I used to scoff at the whole stretch/yoga thing. While I did the typical after workout stretches with my clients and classes I was never really committed to maintaining any type of flexibility program personally.

I thought I would be young, agile and free from tight muscles and tendons forever. Ha! Then I entered my mid-life.

It’s Fine to Have a Tight A**

While it is admirable to have a tight behind, or tight and toned thighs, what is not so charming is the inability to touch your toes.

Tightness in the muscle, tendons and fascia happens through age, overuse, underuse as well as injury.

When we age, we lose some of the water in the tendons, making them stiffer and more susceptible to injury.

When we overuse a muscle we can create muscle tightness because it is always in a contracted state. And when we underuse our muscles, such as sit in one position for long periods of time (like me sitting here writing this blog), we create muscle tightness as a result of the restriction in movement.

All of this can add years to your body, as well as decrease your quality of life.

 How Much Stretching?

This can all be avoided, though, with a regular stretch program – and with a HUGE emphasis on the word REGULAR.

Because tissue is elastic in nature it will always go back to its original length. So, stretching once or twice a week will not train that muscle to stay in the new lengthen position you are asking it to stay in.

This is even more true after the age of 40.

To really see changes in your flexibility, and keep your body agile and young,  you need to stretch every day.

Aim for 5 minutes a day to start and work yourself up to 15-30 minutes. The key here is consistency.

Total Body Stretch For All Levels

Join loving husband and I in this total body stretch routine. It’s perfect for all levels of flexibility, and a great addition for after your workout as well as first thing in the morning.

15-Minute Ab Workout

15-Minute Ab Workout

This was one of the funniest videos to film with loving husband. In this particular workout we have a lovely debate about what words you can and cannot say on YouTube.

You would think, after being married to me for 21 years, he would remember that I suffer from severe verbal diarrhea.

Words just come out and the wonderful thing about YouTube is that there is no censorship.

In my defense, though, I don’t really believe the word I say is one that needs to be censored. Watch the video and judge for yourself.
