Simple Holiday Workout

Getting away for the weekend can be good for the soul, but there’s no doubt that it can also put a dent in the most well-laid exercise plans. So what to do when you’re away from the comfort of home with a hankering for some calorie-burning? Well, the good news is that you don’t have to have a lot of space, equipment (or even shoes for that matter!) to fit in a cheeky workout.

You don’t need much space for a push up!

LGF 28-Day Abs Challenge – FINAL WEEK


The final week of the 28-Day Abs Challenge has begun! Congratulations to all of you who are still hanging in there – I know it’s been tough the last few days. The good news is that we’re now a mere seven days (or five abs sessions) from the finish line.

LGF 28-Day Abs Challenge – Week 3


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!

LGF 28-Day Abs Challenge – Week 2


OK so we’re now onto Day 9 of the LGF 28-Day Abs Challenge, and while it’s predominantly running via Facebook, I realised today that I needed to post it here on the blog as well to ensure that noone can escape! If you missed yesterday but want to stay involved, just make today your ‘Day 8’ and skip your first rest day – you’ll have caught up in no time.

Need a refresher of how to perform each of the exercises? Check out my original post here.

And if you want to keep up to date with the challenge via Facebook, please like my page here. You can also follow me on Twitter here and on Instagram {search Lazygirlfit}. Phew – now that’s the social media pimping out of the way I’ll let you get back to the challenge!

LGF 28-Day Abs Challenge – Starts Today

I don’t think I’d be going out on a limb here to say that we all want better abs and a stronger core. Trouble is, by the time most of us get to the end of a workout, there’s no time for anything more than a few token sit ups (if that). I’m one of the worst offenders out there when it comes to skipping ab-work, so I thought I’d throw down the gauntlet to myself – and anyone else who wants to join me – and commit to a 28-day program designed to improve core strength and yes, achieve better stomach definition.

I know I know, it’s a little vain. And perhaps, given the pain my super-tight hip flexors give me, you could also call it a little stupid. In fact, that’s pretty much what my physio did when I told him, although his exact words were a little kinder – ‘have I taught you nothing?’ Sorry Nick.

Anyway, onto the challenge itself:

Six-Minute Abs

If ‘There’s Something About Mary’ taught me anything, it’s that eight-minute abs didn’t stand a chance once seven-minute abs came along. So it stands to reason that this six-minute ab workout is going to Blow Your Mind.  You should be using your core all day, every day, but it doesn’t hurt to tack a little ab session onto the end of your regular workout too. Makes for nicer looking ‘beach muscles’ anyway (as one of my PT lecturers used to call them). As always, I’m about efficiency, so I like to set this up as a circuit.

Want these? Do this!

Want a toned tummy? Do this!
