This is easily executed in a few simple steps. It works not only your core, but your upper body as well. Especially your shoulders. Let’s get that core nice and strong with the Plank Push-Up!

November #MakingMoves Fitness Challenge Day 12: Long Lever Crunch

This is another oldie, but a goodie! This is a great variation to the standard crunch by making it slightly more challenging. It also focuses directly on each side of your core. We’re almost half way through this challenge and everyone is doing so great and hanging in there. It’s tough but just remember: if your body isn’t challenged, it won’t change. Also remember you can use these moves even after this challenge is over to up the ante with your workouts. So, let’s get to it! Continue reading →

November #MakingMoves Challenge Day 9: Swinging Plank

We are moving right along, folks! Today is day 9 of the fitness challenge and I decided to bring back an oldie but a goodie. I posted this move (and a series of other moves) a few years ago as a part of a Christmas workout challenge. It’s been one of my favorite moves ever since! It’s a tough one that helps to tone your glutes (booty), hamstrings, and especially your core since it’s a plank move. Let’s try it! Continue reading →

November #MakingMoves Fitness Challenge Day 6: Election Day V(ote)-Ups!

It’s Day 6 and we’re moving right along! What’s more important is that today is Election Day! I really hope you all got out to vote this morning or are planning to tonight. I pray this election turns out the best for everyone in this country. So… in honor of today’s buzz words (election, vote, ballot, etc.) I thought I’d make today’s move V(ote)-Ups! Or much better known as V-Ups. This move is intense and really takes some core strength so be patient with it and do your best. Remember, in this challenge, you are supposed to TRY and do 20 of each move. I know you can do it! Continue reading →
