Fitness Fun

One of my favorite outlooks and things to remind people of while on their fitness journey is to never take themselves too seriously along the way!

If you can have fun while you workout, have friends who workout with you and you can enjoy your time with, and don’t get caught up in the small stuff, you’re SO much more likely to stick with it & not get frustrated with the progress, no matter how small.

So today when I was at my grandmother-in-law’s and I didn’t bring my bathing suit, I decided to try on one of hers haha, and of course take a short ab video!

I’ve struggled with body confidence in the past, so screw it! is my philosophy now. πŸ˜‰

So here is a little piyo/pilates-inspired ab work. Repeat these exercises at least 3x through.

Everything can be modified and done with your back down on the mat (or towelπŸ˜‰), as well.

1-Single Single Double Alternating Knee Pulls (Barely in the video 😦 )

2-Crisscross-Opposite shoulder towards opposite knee.

3-Seated Double Leg Stretch

4-Leg Lifts

5-Low Crisscross Legs

Make sure to pull your bellybutton in towards your spine the whole time and BREATH! Six packs, here we come!

      I love any combination of squats and lunges for legs & glutes.
      Also, I come up w some challenging bridge combinations often in my pilates class, I’ll make a blog post featuring a bridge workout!
      Also, side lying leg lifts are great-I can try making a post featuring a side lying workout, as well!
      I love using pilates & piyo inspired moves to create new workouts πŸ™‚

    I have just heard about PiYo a week ago. May have to look into it to challenge myself. Teaching 10 classes of spin a week on top of full time job leaves me almost no time for my own workout but I so need it

      You should definitely check it out!!! It is such a nice compliment to other workout formats! And the at home workouts are fairly short, so theyre a little easier to fit in-plus you can do it on your own time πŸ™‚ Check out beachbodycoach.com/angelinafitness and under the shop you can find PiYo! If you have any questions about it, please dont hesitate to ask! πŸ™‚
