Stretched, foam rolled and Ofcourse did my #yoga immediately after my #longrun. Today’s #yogapose for Day # 21 of @athleta’s #balancebasics #yogachallenge is a #plank. My very favorite core exercise. I can hold this for 6 mins💪👍😀 #yogaanywhere #yogaeverydamnday #namaste

Weekend Fitness Challenge!

Today’s Move: Plank Sweep

This exercise works your entire body - core, arms, shoulders, chest, legs, glutes, obliques. 

It’s a combination of two plank variations; an opposite knee to opposite elbow plank & a spiderman plank.

Do 2-3 sets of 8-10 reps. 

Your body will thank you :)

Happy Fit Friday!

I’m side planking on a Mansion😜 I forgot to post Day 16 of the @athleta #balancebasics #yogachallenge so I’m doing it now after my #run with #nikenyc in front of the historical Morris-Jumel Mansion👍 Today’s #yogapose is one of my favorite oblique exercises - #sideplank💪 #yogaanywhere #yogaeverydamnday #namaste

Motivation for tonight’s workout : ‘Keep Calm, Run On’. So here’s the run down on my #workout: 10 min warm up, dynamic stretching, drills, strides and then this —> 800m; (700m @ 10k pace, 100m faster) 600m; (400m @ 10k pace, 200m faster) 400m; (100m @ 10k pace, 300m faster) 200m @ fast pace, 200 m @ fast pace. 2:00min recovery in between. I finished it and thought whew! I did it. Then the pacer says “Catch your breath for the 2nd round” 😳 say what now? I missed the part about us doing the entire thing twice. I looked down at my shirt and kept calm and Ofcourse kept running. Surprisingly it felt easier. I kept up with my pacers in the front and crushed it👊 You have no idea what your body is capable of until you push your limits. Will be back for more next week😃 #nikenyc #trackwork #speedwork #runitfast #keepitmoving #strongereveryrun

Buns of Steel Workout

Having strong glutes is essential for an athlete. It improves your performance, helps prevent injuries, improves posture and looks pretty darn good in a pair of skinny jeans ;)

My Buns of Steel Workout has 6 of the best butt exercises:

Do each one 20x. 

Exercises such as Step Ups, Lunges, Donkey Kicks and Single Leg Bridge should be performed 20x per leg.

Take a 1 minute break and then repeat.

To make it more challenging, add weights and pulses to each exercise.

*Click on each exercise to see a video demo.

Try incorporating this workout into your training 2-3x a week.
