I am a firm believer that diet plays an integral role in achieving a toned and fit body. I also believe that exercise plays an important role as well. That being said here is an ab workout that I did today:

Halloween Weekend

IMG_2226

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I went to the gym yesterday with temporary tattoos and crimped red hair…clearly I went as a rocker chick the night before. No shame though because I made it to the gym while everyone was sleeping off their hangovers. Needless to say this weekend was a success! Plus I didn’t eat a single piece of candy. Remember November is my month!! We are doing this and starting off strong is the right way to go.

Saturday’s Workout:

– Abs

  • Bicycle crunches – 3 sets x 20 reps
  • Crunches – 3 x 20
  • Leg lifts – 3 x 15
  • Plank – 3 x 30 seconds
  • Side plank – 3 x 30 seconds each side

– Cardio: 3 mile run

Daily Workout

Today I went to this amazing spin class! The teacher played boy band songs such as The Jonas Brothers and Backstreet Boys. Have you ever tried a spin class? If so, let me know what you thought about it! In my opinion, spinning is a great cardio activity that you get out of it what you put in to it.

I also did this 8 minute abs video:

Shoulders: 

For shoulder exercises I recommend starting with lighter weight and increased reps. This will help tone arms and also prevent injuries to the muscles and tendons.

Abs:

Cardio: 30 minute high intensity cross ramp
