Everyone knows that yoga produces some of the strongest, most supple and most crazy toned bodies out there—not to mention its incredible mental and spiritual benefits. But what if you’re looking for a challenging routine that will whip you into shape super fast? Well, you’re in luck! We worked with Fabletics Master Jessica Lucatorto on a yoga flow (with a few non-yoga moves thrown in) that sculpts and tones in ways we didn’t even know were possible.
If you’re looking to strengthen your core in record time, there’s no move that’s more effective than a plank. Inspired by this, we had Fabletics Master Jessica Lucatorto put together an 11-move plank challenge that will seriously make you sweat. Whether you try one move per day or see how many you can get through in one session, your abs will thank you! Ready? Set? Plank!
Summer is here! Summer means swimsuits, and swimsuits mean that your booty is going to be on display for all the world (or at least the beach) to see. If you’re feeling less than ready, or simply want to give things a quick tone and tighten, give these 10 tried-and-true exercises a go. Your booty will thank you…
If you work a 9-to-5 and find yourself stuck in the office all day long, don’t worry! Sitting at a desk all day is no reason not to work out, really. This simple and innovative routine will work your abs from all angles, even when you can drop to crank out some crunches! For an even tougher workout do this circuit 2-3 times.
It’s almost beach season, which means you want to look and feel your very best. To tone up before you it the sand, try completing each of these circuits once a day, on alternate days. In-between circuit lifting days, do 30 to 60 minutes of cardio. You can also add in some extra cardio on circuit days for that extra burn!
Spring is almost here and that means warmer weather, which in turn means switching out sweaters for some cute arm-baring tanks. To get set for sunnier days, we put together 5 moves to target the arms. All moves are performed with a high rep count and low to medium weight, e.g. 20-40 reps or until fatigued. Ready, set, go!
Here are seven exercises that can be repeated for 3 sets to create a total body, 15-minute circuit workout (perfect for Sunday football halftime). Complete each strength exercise for 12 repetitions per leg as needed. Amp up your couch workout by adding on 30-second intervals of the bonus cardio exercises. Once you complete all seven exercises, take a 1-minute break and repeat the entire circuit 3 times.
Regardless if you are a newbie or a seasoned yogi, it’s always helpful to have a complete yoga flow on hand. Although there aren’t “rules” when it comes to yoga, it is helpful to select a sequence that targets different areas of your body, rather than singling out one. Below, I will share with you a well-rounded sequence that will strengthen, tone, and invigorate not only your body, but also your mind.
Running is a form of exercise that many people use to keep fit, to relax and reduce stress, to increase energy, to get the creative juices flowing, to compete, to be proud of an accomplishment and to just have plain fun! However, there is a lot more to running that goes beyond putting one foot in front of the other at a consistent pace.
There are many different styles of yoga, so if a regular hatha yoga class doesn’t seem to strike your fancy, I challenge you to give Ashtanga, Power, Bikram or Hot Yoga a try. These practices are all very physical and will help you to improve strength, flexibility and muscle tone, in addition to relieving stress, tension and anxiety. Here are 8 yoga poses specifically geared towards you guys!
