Core Chub

The chub surrounding my core is stubborn but Iโ€™m melting it away with all this cardio + clean eating + plankinโ€™ = itโ€™s working for me, finally! ๐Ÿ™Œ Iโ€™m going to look into a good belly wrap so I can start squeezing some water out of this body too! If anyone wants to recommend a good one, Iโ€™m a-listeninโ€™ โ€ฆ๐Ÿ‘‚

Achieving Personal Success: Keep It Simple

Achieving personal success, I keep it simple > ME AGAINST ME. If youโ€™re making your goals complicated, that is your own wrong doing. If you take one day at a time, and respect the process you will no doubt STRESS LESS & ACHIEVE MORE. It is that simple because IT IS SIMPLE! ๐Ÿ‘Š

I wake up each morning with this in mind: Another 24hrs ahead of me to be better than the last 24hrs behind me! #OneDayAtATime โ€ฆ๐Ÿ™Œ

If weโ€™re growing better, stronger, faster than the day before weโ€™re always on the path of success. You against YOU. Make it happen – Lita โค

Exercise: The Curtsy Reverse Lunge w/barbell

The Curtsy Lunge! ๐Ÿ’ƒ

Donโ€™t let the name fool you, this kind of curtsy can leave you curled over! I love this exercise because it targets both my legs and glutes but will also help sculpt the hips, thighs and calves as well โ€“ Oh yeah, you want to add this one to LEG DAY! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Using a moderate weight and high reps, (15-25 each leg) this move is a great way to tone up & lean out the lower body. ๐Ÿ‘

You can perform these with dumbbells or a barbell, I prefer a barbell.

Start by standing with your feet hip width apart and then, keeping your weight in your left foot, take a big step back with your right leg, crossing it behind your left leg (as if about to do a ‘curtsy’). Slowly bend your knees and lower your body straight down until your front thigh is parallel to the floor, and both knees are bent at 90 degrees. Be sure to keep your abs drawn in and your back straight. โ˜

Form tip: As you lunge, keep your front knee right over your ankle and donโ€™t let it roll in or out, your toes should point straight ahead. ๐Ÿ’ก
