Im such a baby... I'm sitting here WRAPPED and DRAPPED in my mommy big poncho scarf thingy... I'm so angered by this weather😒.... I'm need to be at my momma house so I can make her bring me hot stuff😂😂 #ThisherGoodWrapToo#ChurchWrap#ItsMineNow#Ilikeit 🙄
Church wrap with leg lifts—I always liked that machine at the gym to work the inner and outer thighs. But I never liked the gym much. So try this instead for the same effect at home—take a resistance band and drape over the feet. Wrap it around outer feet and up through the middle. Then lean on elbow and raise upper leg as high as you can for 60 seconds. Flip to the other side and repeat!!
Workout 3/21 in the books.
Has anyone else tried the Pilates Fix Extreme or any type of workout with the resistance band? Whew! What a workout!
Wearing this tank I got at Summit to remind myself why I am in this journey. I don't eat clean(currently on the countdown to competition meal plan) Because I am punishing myself. No! I am doing this because I love myself and want to FEEL better! By giving my body the proper nutrition, not only will I see results on and off the scale but I am going to have more energy! And for me it's a double win, because it also keeps my autoimmune symptoms at bay!
What are you packing in your lunchbox today?
Any Pilates day where I don’t fall over in this wrap is a good one 😂 yup, totally freaking out about our move and, yup, totally still working out. I don’t want to know what my freak out looks like without working out 😬 #churchwrap#pilates#eliminateexcuses 🤜🤛
🔥Workout Wednesday 💪🏻 brought to you by these Hamstring Pulls I did this morning in the 21 Day Fix Extreme with a bungee. 🙌🏻
To create the wrap I use below, you'll want to make what's called a ⛪️ "church wrap" (look here for directions on how to create it: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=H40Asxjl8aA)
Slightly lean your chest/shoulders back, while pushing your hips forward, creating a flat body position that instantly engages your core, glutes, hams, and your butt. As you lean back, pull your bungee cord forward, creating tension in your arms, shoulders, and core.
Be sure to keep your head neutral and press your shoulders down so you don't create tension in your neck. It can become tempting to place your chin on your chest, throwing your spine out of alignment, and diminishing the effect the exercise has on your core.
Do this move for 1 minute, see if you can keep a consistent pace and resistance the whole time! 🙂
When you realize your shoe is untied when it's wrapped in a #ChurchWrap and you don't care because it was a pain to wrap your feet evenly 😜I'm sitting and laying down my entire workout, so it's not like I'll be tripping over my laces! .
Lower body workout today! I pushed myself harder today than I have since starting this program again. Lots of sweat 💦 today! This is my method of getting into church wrap. I took a little longer to get into it today...I kinda needed a little longer break! 😉 I hope this helps someone who is struggling with this wrap! #fecoach#churchwrap#legdayworkout
Ever notice how lacing up your shoes can be the toughest part of your workout??
And how the workout you DON'T want to do might be the one you need the MOST?? Yeah... this morning, me too!!
Dragging a little this morning after Ava kept waking up all night ... was anything really wrong?? Oh no... she just kept getting herself wedged up in the corner of her crib & crying when she couldn't get back to the center of it! (Sigh!!)
👶 any suggestions?? 🤣
But I KNOW that raising my energy level by getting my mind & body in the game will help me WAY more later today than skipping it now!!!
After 3 days of rest, I'm finally BACK AT IT! It wasn't pretty. I coughed my way through it and took extra breaks to hydrate, but it's DONE and that's all that matters. Here's to hoping I will be able to add some cardio to my workout tomorrow without having a cough attack, stay on track the rest of the week, and make up for Monday's missed workout!
Oh Pilates. You are not my favorite but you are Day three on my schedule ✅
Try this killer leg move. One minute each side ▶️▶️▶️Drape your resistance band over the tops of your feet, then bring the handles around the outside of your feet and pull them up on the inside of your feet. Make sure the band is in the arches of your shoe so its more secure. Alternatively, you can just wrap around the bottom of your feet and pull, without wrapping around each foot. This will give you a little less resistance.
Now, Pilates with a resistance band is something I can get on board with! I enjoyed the extra challenge and the variety the band brought into my workout today👍🏻 --
For some great core exercises, grab a resistance band, get on the floor and follow along! Each exercise is for 1 minute! Let me know what you think! --
#fml I put my workout off all morning. Finally got up and drank my #preworkout and got changed. Sat down to figure out the #churchwrap because today is #pilatesfixextreme and this happens. Are you kidding me? By the time I go to the store and get another one, my preworkout will have wore off, and I have to have a #resistanceband for this one. #ugh .
