Killer Body Shred Tabata is the 18th workout in the Lean Body Series and it's another doozy! This is full-on intense with 3/4 of the workout being different Burpee variations! Don't worry, you can do it - one round is only 16 minutes! I was still a bit sick during this one and I did it, and so can you! All levels can do this, just go at your own max pace and get as many reps in as you can in the allotted interval. Notice I say

Killer Body Shred Tabata: Lean Body Series Workout #18

Killer Body Shred Tabata is the 18th workout in the Lean Body Series and it’s another doozy! This is full-on intense with 3/4 of the workout being different Burpee variations! Don’t worry, you can do it – one round is only 16 minutes! I was still a bit sick during this one and I did it, and so can you! All levels can do this, just go at your own max pace and get as many reps in as you can in the allotted interval. Notice I say “your own MAX pace”. Tabata is scientifically proven to be a massive calorie burn and excellent cardiovascular conditioning in a short amount of time, and you will see results if you are consistent with it. However, Tabata is not truly Tabata unless you are going FULL out for those 20 seconds and giving yourself a full rest during those 10 seconds. So be sure to challenge yourself (while being smart and listening to your body). The workouts in the Lean Body Series are for EVERYbody – men and women of all ages and fitness levels. No matter who you are, this series will get you shredded and breaking through plateaus!

Running “tires

J’s Fit Hit’s: Tips for Getting & Staying Fit (Week 3)

Running “tires” HIIT exercise using a pool floaty! No excuses – get creative and use what you have on hand! 😉 Okay, this week’s J’s Fit Hit’s is now up, along with a new Fitness As A Lifestyle Challenge. Getting (and staying) fit takes dedication, motivation, and support. I get a lot of questions about how I stay fit and motivated, so I started “J’s Fit Hits” to share a few of my favorite resources, products, and tips with you each week. These are things that I personally do (or use) that I find really help me stay on track with my fitness goals. Each week, I will give us a little challenge – a single lifestyle change that we will focus on for the week and aim to incorporate into our lifestyle on a permanent basis. By slowly building up a set of healthy habits, we enable ourselves to stay in shape without feeling overwhelmed by the effort. Those habits build up and before you know it, you’ve got fitness as a lifestyle!

I hope you find something helpful in this week’s Fit Hits. Good luck with the FITNESS AS A LIFESTYLE CHALLENGE this week and don’t forget to continue on with last week’s challenge (drink AT LEAST half your bodyweight in oz of water daily). Check in and let me know how you’re doing and if you have any sleep tips for this weeks’s challenge.

Don’t forget to check in with me and tell me how you’re doing!

Move of the Week: Front Kick Back Kick. This is a great move to sculpt powerful legs and burn calories! It's also a really effective way to work important core muscles - hello abs! Speed it up for a great cardio calorie burn. Pay special attention to the re-chamber. Really pull that leg back in. You will be working your muscles differently and you will get even more out of the exercise.

Note: Video is real-time.

Technique:

1) From a split stance with right foot forward and arms on guard, shift weight into left leg and bring right leg into a chamber (bending right knee up toward chest). 2) Quickly extend leg, exhaling forcefully through mouth while kicking out from hip and leaning torso back slightly, pushing out through ball of foot. 
3) Return leg to chamber and down.

4) Immediately lift left foot back into chamber (bending left knee behind you with foot near buttocks). 5) Kick back out through the heel (arms remain on guard the entire time). 6) Return leg to chamber and down.

Do 15 quick reps; repeat on the opposite side for a total of 3 sets, or do it as a round of Tabata (4 mins of 20/10 intervals) going at your maximum intensity.

MOVE OF THE WEEK: Plyo Squat Jacks! This is a full-body exercise that requires no equipment and primarily works the legs and midsection -- specifically, the gluteus maximus, hamstrings, abdominals, quadriceps and calves. By adding a weight and an overhead press, you also engage the core and the upper body more. This exercise builds explosive power, aids athletic performance, and builds muscle while also burning fat. Quadruple duty baby!

Technique:

1) Lower into a squat and bring your arms in front of you, with both hands holding a single 10 lb weight (10 lbs or less - don’t go above 10 lbs on these).
2) Jump your feet together as you raise the weight over your head.
3) ‘Jack’ your feet out and return to a squat, as you lower the weight in front of you. Move as quickly as you can while keeping good form. Do 20 seconds of max reps with a 10 second rest in between, a total of 8 times (for one 4-minute Tabata round). Or do 3 sets of 20 reps as fast as you can.

Tip: When in a squat, be sure to keep your knees behind your toes and your hips behind you as if you were about to sit on a chair. Land softly when you come out of your jump into your squat.

MOVE OF THE WEEK: Tabata bing, Tabata boom basketball jumps!!! HIIT Basketball jumps really get your heart rate soaring! It is a super efficient calorie burning total body move. This move never fails to get my heart rate up super high! The video is sped up so it doesn't look like the jumps are high, but they are - jump as high as you can while still keeping a fast pace, during the interval.

Technique:

1) From a standing position, holding a weight or weighted ball, squat partway down and take a WIDE lateral step with your right foot keeping your body low. 
2) Immediately follow with your left foot, bringing it to your right and then explosively jump vertically, extending your ams as if you are going to shoot a basket.

3) Repeat alternating directions for a 4 minute Tabata (20 seconds on 10 seconds off). Have fun!

Move of the Week: The Squat Front Kick is a great exercise for both fat burning and lean muscle building. Squats are an effective, tried-and-true exercise to tone the glutes and legs and by adding a kick, you are targeting the core muscles more as well as increasing the fat burn. It’s a “no-excuse” exercise that you can do anywhere and no equipment is necessary! Go as fast as you can, while being sure to keep good form. Your heart will pump and your muscles will burn!

Technique:

1) Stand with your feet a little more than shoulder width apart and hands in guard position. 
2) Contract your abs and keep them contracted throughout the entire movement.
3) Bend knees and lower into squat position.
4) Return to standing, bringing knee up.
5) Complete a front kick with your raised leg.
6) Be sure to re-chamber your leg at the knee and then bring it back down (you are making your muscles work extra hard here)! That’s one rep. Repeat alternating legs for 24 reps (12 each leg) of 3 sets. Alternatively, you can turn this into a Tabata and set your timer for 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off for 8 rounds (4 minutes). This is one of my favorite go-to Tabata’s in between sets on strength training days.

Beginners: Try to kick to waist level.  Advanced: Try to get the kick as high as you can. Can you get it higher than your head? This is a great exercise to do in front of a mirror to see how high you can go. Aim for a kick in the head! ;-) Tip: Transfer your weight to your heels during the squat to ensure you are properly working the target muscles, without putting undue stress on your ankles and knees.
