Fitsugar 10 Minute Pilates

Friday, August 02, 2013

Ok, now that August is here I'm going to start doing a variety of exercises. I've mainly just walked my dogs and done Zumba for that past couple of months. I'm not really gaining weight, but I'm definitely NOT losing anything either. My 40th birthday is now less than 6 months away and I need to get on the weight training bus. I keep reading articles on how to ward off weight gain as you get older and they all point to doing weights. So, as much as I dread doing anything non-cardio...Here it goes.

I have been pinning workouts from Fitsugar. They are 10 minutes and I thought I'd try one today. I REALLY hate doing my abs for some reason. I know that if I work on them my back feels so much better and I love how they look. Right now my back hurts and I DON'T like what I see.

Here is a link to the workout I did today:

    Muscle burns fat! More muscle you have, the more calories you'll burn while resting which is something we all want! emoticon

Have you tried standing ab workouts? Those may not be as bad as the ones you have to do on the floor. Also, working your core is a great way to stabilize your core section (which includes the back) but you want to make sure you work your back as well so it gets stronger on its own. Plus, if you work your back, you are still working your core and making it stronger so bonus! emoticon

Keep pushing and you'll be seeing your next birthday with more muscle tone! emoticon
