Day 9- HARDbody challenge: 600 REPS

I’ve received a lot of feedback about the post on my personal and business FB page about Israel passing a legislation on Monday night that makes it illegal to use models that fall below an 18.5 BMI in advertising or publication, making it the first country to do so. I agree with all your feedback about the models being so unhealthy. Not only do they look unhealthy, they are unhealthy. We all know what a thin person looks like, that works out and eats healthy and I think we can all agree that is beautiful! Just remember that as we go through our fitness journey, it’s about how you feel mentally and physically and doing this the RIGHT way.  Feel good about yourself, do what you can to achieve your goals and if you slip, get back on! We are a growing fitness community and I hope that you will gain from the site and we can all help get you back on track by positive reinforcement. By sharing challenges and successes we all gain more motivation and inspiration. Post your stories on my wall, because you motivate me to keep going.

Okay, enough of that! Let’s get on this workout! OOOOO you’re gonna feel the burn today!! (insert evil laugh)….  My quads are burning as I’m writing this for ya… Okay, so again, I started with a 2 mile run; 11.32 was my mile. I’m getting better and that’s what counts.

HARDbody workout

600 REPS

100 High Knees(each leg)

100 Lunge kicks(50 on one leg, then alternate)

100 High Knees

100 Squats(I got to 30 and starting feeling the burn and by 78 I was dying)

100 High Knees

25 Straight Abs(all the way up)

25 V Abs Left

25 V Abs Right

25 Bicycle Abs


Form for your squat

I hold my weights to the side, holding to the front will add in the extra shoulder/chest workout.. Always, push the hips and butt back, weight on your heels while keeping your chest up. As you always hear, don’t let your knees go over your toes. Yes, this is mainly for non injury reason but also, it’s a TON better workout on those quads when you sit back

Form for your lunge

When adding in a kick or knee raise, once you get to “B” position, kick or knee raise from there. 90 degree angle on these Form for V abs

If bringing the legs up is too hard, leave them on the ground and raise your arm and upper body up off the groundForm for bicycles

To get the most from these abs, keep them slow, breathe out at the top and get the legs straight and as close to the ground without touching
