Dumbbell Fly Leg Raises

This move is great for the entire core. Use a lighter weight and do 3 sets of 15. You do NOT need a bench. You can do this on the floor. Keep your back flat against the floor or bench and breathe out as you lower your arms and legs.

Bicycle Crunch Raises

Add a little extra to your bicycle crunches. Try to make the lift and the recline as smooth as possible. It works the entire core at once. Do 3 sets of 10. Its killer. Share this with your friends or on your timeline for later as a reminder! Comment below when you try it and[…]

Tri Fitness Challenge Obstacle Course

Obstacle course run #2. I MADE IT!! I didn’t fall, I don’t hurt myself (aside from ripped hands), I didn’t puke, and I didn’t gas out. The end was my favorite part! For the first time ever, I finished strong through the end. 9 seconds off my PR of 50 secs. Monkey bars and the[…]

Do You Struggle With Back Fat?

Do you struggle with back fat? This is the part of my body that JUST WON’T change. Maybe it’s because I like cookies and salt and vinegar chips too much. Lol. Or maybe it’s because I was born with spinabifida and have broken my back more than once. My lower back has ISSUES. Lol But[…]

Push ups-Dead Lift-Squat!
