I haven’t written much about this yet, but I’ve been using kettlebells quite a bit these days. My husband went above and beyond this year on my Christmas present: a whole set of kettlebells!
Kettlebells are awesome. They are a great way to build strength AND work on your cardio. We primarily follow a Kettlebell […]
I’m sure people either love or hate Jillian Michaels. I have to admit: I’m a fan. I’ve watched The Biggest Loser off and on over the years so I wasn’t necessarily a fan of hers because of the show, but more for her fitness DVDs. Of course, I’ve only tried a few (3 to be […]
So, I’m still loving the barbell! I’m telling you I just feel stronger using them.
Anyway, my goal is to increase my overall muscle mass and in order to do so, I have to increase the amount of weight I use when I lift. For me, it’s easy to kind of get stuck lifting the […]
I am a snack monster, it’s official. I’m just so excited about all these (new to me) snacks I’ve been trying lately. I mean it when I say, none of them have disappointed me.
I reached out to the folks at Squarebar (Sarah and Andrew Gordon) and they were nice enough to send me a […]
Ohhhh man. There is a new protein bar in town you guys.
I saw B-Up bars kind of floating around on Instagram, so I reached out to the company and asked if I could try a few. They were nice enough to send me lots of different flavors to try and let me tell you, […]
Honey, I baked! I swear I would bake all the time if someone else in my house would help me eat the finished product. They might actually. Maybe I just eat everything too fast so no one else stands a chance. It’s certainly possible.
Anyway, I noticed I was starting to accumulate quite the […]
I am really enjoying weight lifting these days. I just love that tiny little muscle pump I get after lifting. I always think my muscles look so big so I snap a pic to capture the moment, then I realize, nope still pretty small. Ya gotta start somewhere though, right?
Typically, I use free weights. […]
I love Quest protein bars. They are just so delicious. Like, too delicious. They almost border on I-can’t-keep-them-in-my-house-because-I’ll-eat-them-all-in-one-day delicious.
Quest Protein Powder
Anyway, I was pretty pumped when the Quest folks came out with protein powder. Seems like a natural transition for them.
I follow the company on various social media platforms and they […]
I am a big ol’ fan of this workout. I don’t love working out my legs because they’re my weakest body part, that being said, I want my glutes to grow. Yes, my booty. Grow booty grow! Obviously, it’ll be hard to grow that booty if I never work out my legs. So, I’ve been […]
This workout is really focused on your upper body. The burpees in between each exercise is a great way to get a little cardiovascular workout in (which burns mucho calories). The focus is primarily on your chest, triceps, and shoulders but all three of these moves work your entire body, especially your core.
