Easy Peasy Planking Interval

Happy Hump Day my darling Team!

I actually truly despise the term hump day. It brings some really ugly images to the forefront of the mind… but recently I’ve been trying to make peace with it, given that the rest of the world seems intent on making it an acceptable way to greet people on Wednesday. [Read more…]

10-Minute Abs

10-minute abs

Can I let you in on a guilty secret? I’m always skipping out on ab stuff. Unless I sneak it into the middle of my workouts there’s no freaking way I’ll be doing it… I just always find something better to do, like run off to my next appointment, eat my lunch, watch the grass grow. So usually I try to approach abs in a similar way to a mother trying to get her child to eat veggies without it noticing what’s going on. Except in this scenario I’m the mother and the child. It’s a bit like squats, push-ups, plank, lunges… what? Noooo, no abs here Jess, you totally imagined it.

Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Let’s face it, it can be hard to fool yourself in this kind of scenario. I shouldn’t be such a baby about it though. After all, I know how good it is for me, and who doesn’t want a killer six-pack? (Or at least a two-pack, right?). And throughout the 28-Day Abs Challenge I’m really diligent! But then I fall back into back habits.

Anyway, this week I’ve decided that I will commit to a short standalone abs workout on five of the seven days. It’ll only take 10 minutes and you should do it with me!

Whaddaya ya say?

While I was home a week ago (god, was it only a week? Feels like a lifetime) I did manage to squeeze in a few good workouts amongst the wakesurfing and reading and blogging and laying by the pool…. quite a few actually given I was only home for four days. But really, what good are holidays if you can’t use them to do a session or five? No good at all I tell you. [Read more…]

LGF 28-Day Abs Challenge – Week 3

LGF_wk3

Week Three! If this was the City2Surf, you’d be almost at the top of Heartbreak Hill right now – the going gets tough this week (really tough) but you’re starting to feel like you can almost see the finish line and it feels GOOD! If you’re starting to struggle, don’t be afraid to split your workout up – do half in the morning and half before bed. It doesn’t matter when you’re doing the challenge, just as long as you keep doing it!
