Small vent

So the other day I was with a couple friends and we were talking about fitness. Friend One was saying how she can’t do push ups. I told her that she should try doing yoga push-ups ‘cause I have an easier time doing them compared to your standard push-up. Friend Two was like, “its not on your knees, is it?”

The tone which she said it in is what really pissed me off. If it was on your knees (which its not) then whats the big deal? Everyone is on a different level of fitness. And no one should be judgmental on the level of fitness someone is on. If someone does push-ups on their knees thats better than not doing them at all-not even giving an effort to do them. 

She’s just one of those people that thinks her way is better. 

And this brings me to another point. I feel like a lot of people think yoga and pliates are not a hard work-out. Some of it is light and relaxing but for a lot of poses you need a lot of strength  A lot. If its so easy and “pansy” then let me see you do THIS….

Burn Baby Burn

Whoa that was intense. Cassey Ho is awesome.

I didn’t really like the first video-Live while we’re are young inner thighs. You have to use a chair and the chair was really pressing against the back of my knee which really hurts. 

I really liked her beginner inner thigh one. I remember I wasn’t able to do it well over the summer but this time I actually was able to stick with it longer. 

Any who, I really recommend following her December plan. I am really wiped out. I walked down staires to get a cup of water and my legs were burning!

I am planning on doing P90X after dinner. 

After my bloglates workout, I had fresh edamame topped with a sesame vinegar. Really nice for a small snack. And if you are like me, I need something sweet after something salty. 

I made oatmeal and banana cookies which Cassey Ho ( I really like her, haha) posted a video on how to make. Really delicious and it is super healthy.

Get Your Best Legs
First know that you can’t reduce fat in just one place. Your body takes a little bit of fat from everywhere, more or less in some places due to your genetics. Doing a ton of leg exercises isn’t necessarily going to make all that fat disappear, at least not by itself. We do these exercises to shape and tone the muscles so your legs have a great shape. If you aren’t eating healthy and doing cardio those sexy muscles are going to be hidden no matter how many squats you do. Gaining muscle helps, it increases the metabolism thus burning more calories, but you have to work the rest of your body and have a clean diet too.
Try to do one video or pick five exercises and do 3 sets of 8-12 reps (or until you feel the burn) about 3-4 days a week. Do cardio 3-5 days a week too, it can be running, biking, swimming, Zumba, kickboxing, whatever gets your heart pounding and sweat dripping. You can combine strength workouts and cardio into the same day if you want. Make sure to eat protein after your workouts, it helps build muscle!
These are, in my opinion, the best thigh and leg exercises and videos. I’ve included links to instructions for most of the exercises and a variety that you can do at home or at the gym. If you workout at home try to get some 8-10 lbs dumbbells, or get a backpack/duffel bag and fill it with heavy books to challenge yourself.
If you have access to a gym try these machines & equipment:
the leg/hamstring curl machine
the leg press machine
the leg abductor/adductor machines
squats with a barbell and/or dumbbells
barbell deadlifts 
lunges with dumbbells
bulgarian split squat
If you don’t have access to a gym try these exercises at home:
wall squats
jump squats 
bridge/hip lifts (try them with your feet on a chair/bed)
hip lifts on a balance ball (you’ll get an almost instant burn!)
leg lifts
inner thigh lifts
the fire hydrant
sumo squats
suicides
These are my favorite leg videos:
Inner Thigh Insanity
Slimmer Inner Thighs
Legs & Thighs Workout
Itty Bitty Bikini
Long Lean Legs Workout
POP Kicks Kickboxing
Bikini Beach Bum
Tone It Up Legs & Core
