Barre Ab Burner {video}

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday! Hope you’re having a lovely morning. I’m off on an adventure today and am so excited to post the details. I’ll get to see snow (the kind that sticks to the ground haha) for the first time in years. I am wholly unprepared for the realness that’s headed my way haha.

In the meantime, here’s a barre ab workout I put together for ya!

I feel like the ab/core section in barre classes is not like pizza: It’s either OH YES I FEEL THE BURN, or meh. Since the movements tend to be within a smaller range of motion, you have to make sure that your posture and alignment is on par (I almost said “on fleek” there but I’m 30).

Here’s a 10-minute video I put together featuring some of my very favorite moves! We work in high hold with some oblique twists, move onto the floor for figure 4 crunches, leg lifts, and finally, into a prone position for low back work. This 10-minute video will work every abdominal muscle and also helps to strengthen the low back, which is a critical component of our core. As always, modify as needed and check with a doc before making any fitness changes. 

 

Let me know if you give a it a try! See you soon.

Did you know today is national running day? Are you celebrating? No running for this girl… I’m still a little bit sore from the race and going to give my legs a break. I’ll probably power walk in Orangetheory tomorrow and get back on the running train this weekend. If you missed it, check out […]

How’s your day going? Ours has been relaxing and lovely. Livi slept until 9am! I was dressed and waiting for her to wake up, and she snoozed away. I almost went to wake her up, but remembered the wise advice to never wake a sleeping baby. So I made us both some pancakes for us to […]

Kombucha update + NEW Ab burner

I’m not going to say I wasn’t a little freaked out to taste the kombucha.  The scoby looked totally healthy with no signs of mold, but there were definitely more strands of bacteria floating around in there. It’s pretty amazing how much the liquid changes in a course of 10 days, and the new baby […]

Winter Shape Up 2013: Week 2 Plank Ab burner

plank-2.jpg

The first time I heard of plank workouts, I thought they might be a waste of time. Planks over 10 seconds allow you to “cheat,” so you’re not only using your core- your shoulders, legs, biceps, booty, everything starts to kick in when the abs quit. Then I realized that instead of thinking of it […]

I have exciting news for you. Boys Meets World is gracing our TVs again with its presence (and the good news is that we once again have a working TV. I was glad for the peace and quiet, but now have to seriously get caught up on The Voice). I was a little scary excited […]
