Starting the New Year off right!

I posted a while back about the PURIFY detox/cleanse system. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm doing it again! I highly recommend this system especially with all of the health and wellness resolutions out there. It's a 7 day system that won't interrupt your daily routine. It's ALL NATURAL! I'm all about that! If you are serious about getting healthy and losing weight this is the jump start you need! Visit this website for a detailed description of this system. Now, if you haven't guessed it already I am a distributor in this company. I believe in their products and use them myself. I would not share them with you or be apart of something I didn't believe in. I have seen some pretty amazing things happen because of these products and this company. My family has benefitted tremendously. We are moving toward a healthy and prosperous future and I'm excited. If you are interested in experiencing this yourself let me know! I would love to help you get there! I wish everyone a happy and safe new year! I can't wait to get my Internet up, I have so much to share! Thanks and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Booty Booster!

I'm SO SORRY this has taken me so long, it has been a crazy week!  First of all, I'm excited to give away a 2 week supply for the Nutriiveda ALL NATURAL meal replacement. This product has changed my family's lives, and I'm excited to share it with you. Yes, I said my family's lives.  My kids even drink it for breakfast.  I add fruit & milk and it's the HEALTHIEST meal of their day.  This is NOT a diet drink. (we all know those don't work!)  It's a meal replacement. Visit HERE for more information on this amazing product. If you haven't all ready, SIGN UP for your chance to try it FREE for 2 weeks! It's super easy! Click HERE

On to the BOOTY!  The glutes are the largest muscle in the body, therefore it's one of the body's top calorie burning muscle! If your glutes are weak, it causes a disruption in our body's muscular balance. This can lead to pain and injuries. NO GOOD!

  • Deadlift
  • Hip raises
  • Reverse hip raises
Now, before you get to those you need to know how to activate your glutes before you work them with heavy weight...

(enjoy the silly music, it's a little better than the racquet ball courts going crazy)

There are several levels in this demonstration.  You can pick one you are comfortable with and use it.  For beginners you would use the raise without weight.  For the advanced, you would add the stability ball and weight.  The key is to focus on your glutes.  Keep them tightly squeezed.  I would perform 2 sets of 12-15 reps if you are using this as a warm-up.  If you are using this as part of your work out. I would do 3 sets of 8-10 reps.

Now, I decided to throw in a bonus demonstration that works your hamstrings as well as your glutes...

The key here is to again, KEEP YOUR GLUTES TIGHTLY SQUEEZED!

You want to roll the ball in while curling your heals toward your booty.  Roll the ball from your heals to your toes.  Keep abs tight and feel the burn!  I didn't demonstrate this but you can turn your toes outward or inward to work different areas of the hamstring.  For the advanced, do this with one leg.  Add this to the exercise above for a great booty exercise. ENJOY!

If there is something else you would like to see, LET ME KNOW :)

Love this one...
