Today I’m going to demonstrate a light cardio workout that I do every Sunday called the reverse toe touch & ab crunch. This is just a quick little 45 minute set that I do just to get me going for the day.
The reverse toe touch and ab crunch provides the perfect amount of ‘oomph’ first thing in the morning.
Trying to find meals that will work for everyone in my family has been a little trying. Going into the summer I’m determined to get everyone on the same page and to get everyone (the Mr. included) eating just a little bit healthier.
If there’s one thing I love it’s chicken. I also love bacon (so I guess that makes two). So when I found this amazing recipe from Karina of Cafe Delites, I knew I had to try it.
While your at it, feel free to check out my Pinterest board full of yummy recipes!!
As a photographer it’s expected we don’t sit until the bride and groom eat. Even then sometimes we don’t get our food right away or at all. I’m not here to debate whether or not photographers should request a meal; I’m here to provide solutions and tips for those who prefer or need to snack throughout the day and for those who know they won’t be eating until long after the wedding has ended.
The majority of my weddings begin somewhere between 3-5pm. Normally this means I am away from home all day and won’t be eating at my usual time.
When prepping for my long wedding days, I try to avoid eating a heavy meal. For some people this may work, but for me I tend to get sleepy. I try to keep it light and snack throughout the day.
My go to snacks include: beef jerky, cubed cheese, fresh fruit and applesauce. I also pack water or some type of sports drink.
When planning your wedding days what are your favorite snacks? Share a photo of your snacks on instagram using the hashtag #fitfotographer I’d love to see what’s in your camera bag!
I found this photos on Pinterest and started incorporating just a few of these moves into my workout. Give it a try.
June 1st I officially hit week 16 of my 21 week fitness journey. At the beginning of May I added a stricter arms and ab routine. I also cut out alcohol and carbs. I’m loving all of the progress I made.
I figured I would give a little psa. Something I learned in my strength training journey. Never round your back when squatting. A lot of people know this, as well as myself, but I still do it.
To avoid this remember to always keep your spine neutrally aligned to slightly arched. Rounding can place a lot of pressure on your disk, if not careful you can injure yourself.
Just because you’re using a machine (such as myself with the smith machine above) don’t think you can’t hurt yourself.
Happy Thursday!! Today I’m going to demonstrate a few plank knee tucks and glute extensions. Do this in addition to glute bridges and overhead crunches for a truly intense workout.
The Rock clock is a wonderful app that I use on the days where I know I’m not going to be too motivated to workout. My bad days a usually Mondays and Fridays. I don’t know why, but this app keeps me motivated.
Completing an upper body & core workout is a must. Here I’ve demonstrated a few variations of one of my favorite exercises Russian twist.
Upper body & core workouts are perfect to do prior to a long run.
Happy Tuesday!! Today I’m doing to show you a quick little move I call bicep toners (in the video I say tricep–sorry for the slip up).
Lift your hips high and your arms straight up. Bend your arms back slowly in a curl position keeping your arms in the same position. Extend your arm back out squeezing your biceps. This move tones not only your biceps but also your buns!!
