I just wanted to wish all of you Happy 4th of July! Some of you don’t know what this holiday is all about but on July 4th, every year, Americans celebrate their Independence Day. I hope all of you, your friends and family have a wonderful weekend. Here is a short video I shot while at Magic Mountain. We had a fun day and later that evening we watched fireworks display. It was spectacular!
Here is a great workout to get your booty, thighs and legs in shape in a very short time. Tabata Squats with weights. I would not recommend it to everyone. Make sure your body is a little stronger. In other words you should know what you are doing, and how to keep a good form without thinking about it. That will develop naturally when you do some workouts before attempting this one. Also, make sure to warm up and stretch before. Tabata is a fantastic addition to your workout routine and finalize your exercising for a day :) Have fun!
My daughter got her first karate uniform this week. It shocked me when I put it on her because I realized that in a few months my baby will be ready to take her first class! Although I took my first karate class many, many years ago, I still remember it and sometimes it feels like it happened not that long ago. Yes, time flies and we will never get it back, so spend every minute to live life to its fullest!!
Do what you love doing and enjoy doing it.
for the past month I have been posting, mostly on Facebook, exercises adding final touch in sculpting legs, thighs and booty for this coming summer! For this last week I’m going to intensify my workout and go heavy and limit breaks between sets. I will do the following workout video on Monday. and on Wednesday tabata squats. For Friday do this video (same as Monday).
I created this video for people demanding easier workouts! Eventually we all should become more ambitious and aim for harder, more difficult workouts because this is the only way to improve, get stronger, and achieve desired results. This workout is really simple. It consists of only two basic exercises and most of us can do them. For people looking for more challenging workouts I would suggest using slightly heavier weights on squats, however too much weigh may prevent you engaging your arms properly, so use your judgment. Also, make sure to maintain right form. Watch my squats tutorial video in my earlier posts if not sure whether you do it correctly. Have fun!
I was very, very reluctant to film this video. I received a message some time ago asking “how to get a thigh gap” I had no idea what it meant until several other people inquired about that matter. Thigh gap is a space/opening between thighs. You will get it if your thighs will get very thin. I don’t understand why it matters so much to some girls?! First of all, very skinny people, like models, have it. I have been paying a lot of attention to fitness competitors lately, and guess what? NONE of them have a stupid thigh gap? Why? Because they are health women having muscles on their legs closing that gap between their thighs! Models are very skinny. They don’t have much fat, but unfortunately, they don’t have much muscle either. Many models lose their jobs if they put on muscles so they just have to be skinny for the industry. Period. To get a thigh gap you will have to lose so much weight that will create that very opening between your thighs, and I don’t think it’s healthy to go through the process only to have that particular feature. Gap does not mean anything. Nevertheless, I created this video to answer some questions. But again, remember thigh gaps should not govern your overall appearance, and most importantly, who you are!! I personally discourage you from following the crowds of thigh gaps fanatics!
Per your request, I have created this easy workout video for beginners that will target your abs, legs, thighs, and glutes! Advanced people can also do this workout, however they will just have to use weights or heavier weights depending on your fitness level and fitness goals. More details in the video.
I decided to work extra hard this month to get my body in shape before summer. I will devote Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays to work on my lower body (glutes and legs) and abs. If you want to join me on this challenge visit this blog and facebook on those days to get details regarding my workouts. Also, please watch the video to find out morea bout the program. Keep in mind that you need to follow healthy diet plan, and do cardio and other exercises for optimal results.
Although pancakes are associated with unhealthy food, you can have a healthier version of pancakes or waffles if you modify your recipe a bit. Instead of bleached flour, use oatmeal flour or even add rolled oats. I added 2 eggs, water and a little soy milk. Of course -no sugar and no butter. For topping, I used cottage cheese and fresh fruits. Tastes yummy and no guilty thoughts :)
I watched this amazing moon rising – truly pleasing moment. I hope you will like this video. Whenever you don’t feel well, have problems or can’t sleep at night – think of the most amazing sky you have seen. That should calm you down:)
