BIG CONGRATS LADIES!!!!
Hard work & consistency pays off every time!
As you know, I’m a big fan of the Tone It Up ladies and have been following them for years. They’re having the best year ever, and I’m so excited that SO MANY of you are also following along! Be sure to show them some love on their site & Facebook page and tell them I sent ya!
Karena & Katrina have developed a series of workouts for Self Magazine, and they are awesome! Try them out to get or boost your bikini bod. No beach required (although it would be nice, wouldn’t it?)
(Psst: Katrina’s following me on Facebook! Get on the Chichi Kix train, yo!)
This video rocks, I’m really excited to share it with you! Be sure to grab a glass of water before you workout & grab a printable copy of Karena & Katrina’s Tone It Up workout in the latest issue of Self Magazine.
- A set of dumbbells (5-8lbs), a towel or mat.
More of my favorite Tone It Up workouts…
Sometimes, we’re so focused on the mirror that we forget to tone the parts of us that we don’t see everyday; mainly the muscles in our backs.
We all love the sight of a lean, toned & strong back but for women, these muscles are ESPECIALLY important since we need the uh… extra support. If you’ve been blessed with a little extra mammary action, working your back is essential to help prevent pain & discomfort. Strengthening your back muscles helps with posture, prevents injury, improves balance & takes the pressure off your core.
This is a quick & effective routine that you can do at home OR at the gym.
Tip: You can do this routine on its own or combine it with a little cardio. To get a higher calorie burn, follow each move (or every other move) with 30-60 seconds of cardio. Jumping jacks, high knees, run/jog etc. You’ll boost your heart rate & scorch calories during both the cardio & strength sections.
