Do you run laps around a park or run kms on the treadmill at the same pace in hope to burn those extra kilos that you put on over winter? Well stop right now, as it’s most probably doing nothing for you except conditioning your fitness.
To burn fat you must combine high intensity cardio mixed with resistance to see results. Read fitness guru Cam Davis’s tips on how to burn fat fast with running.
Now is the time to get your butt into gear as summer is just around the corner. Here personal trainer Dan Adair from 98 Riley Street Gym gives Sporteluxe the best exercise to lift and tone the butt area. Trust me you’ll be ready in no time to slip on that Seafolly bikini (pictured above) that you’ve had your eye on for the past month like I have. So what are you waiting for?
Can’t seem to find the right exercise to tone your thighs and hips? This week Woman’s Day magazine features my move of the week, ‘The Clam’ that targets these key areas women seem to always hate.
I do this exercise three times a week along with high intensity cardio on the alternate days twice a week. My favourite high intensity cardio workout is hill running for 30 minutes. Both of these exercises are a great combo for toning the legs and burning fat.
Tip: Remember to follow a healthy diet of proteins, vegetables, grains and fruits which will give you the energy to exercise more efficiently.
Is this the new healthy selfie? You’ve probably seen lately that the Bridge Pose (above) has been trending on many instagram accounts around the world. The backdrops usually include some beautiful untouched beach, a luxury yacht, private island villa, grassy park or infinity pool to name a few. But for the most of us as we sit there in awe staring at these beautiful yoga pose images on instagram wishing how we could bend backwards and look like how she did in the image, feelings of inspiration and determination tend to get the better of us and before we know it, we’re drinking coconut water, exercising every day and then suddenly down at the beach trying the Bridge Pose ourselves. Yes it’s the new healthy selfie and a truly inspiring one. But just a word of advice before we all lay down to arch our backs, remember that the Bridge Pose comes with a lot of practice. So listen to the body and do what is comfortable for you to start with. Practice only makes perfect.
Benefits: The Bridge Pose is a fantastic pose for building lower body strength, lengthening and strengthening the spine. Always consult your yoga teacher.
