New Video: BOSU Hamstring Curl

New Video: BOSU Hamstring Curl

Nobody has ever asked me to please have their butt droop more and be softer. Ever. So luckily, for those of us who want it tighter and rounder and higher, I have lots and lots of great moves! One of my favourites is the BOSU Hamstring Curls. It requires extra stabilization, which recruits more muscle fibres and therefore requires more energy (read: burns more calories) and tightens and strengthens you fast. So, try. :)

Take It Off – New Video: Tighter Butt

Welcome to post number 200. It is time to begin a new series of posts. Let me explain what Take It Off really means.

If you’re not doing it already, give it a shot!

New Video: Tight Butt!

My clients know – glutes are my favourite muscle to train! A strong butt is SO important (not to mention sexy). Men and women alike need to carve this muscle into shape, and build strength to help them perform in ALL of their physical activities. Here is a great exercise to tighten, lift and tone the butt. As well as the glutes, this exercise will tone up and strengthen the lower back and the hamstrings. Be sure to include another more compound lower body exercise in your workout program, such as squat jumps, step-ups or a lunge variation to firm up the quads as well for complete lower body training. Try this one out, and let me know what you...
