We are all trying to look and feel our best. Since your abs are at the core of your wellbeing, giving them a good workout is essential to your health. If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent hours doing on the floor crunches or planks. These are great movements that do help you build your core, but those movements alone may not be enough. The goal is not to work harder, but smarter. Incorporating ab workouts with dumbbells is working smarter. There are several benefits associated with adding dumbbells to your workout routine, and your ab routine is no different! Using dumbbells while toning, helps create functional movements, tones each side of the body equally, and helps provide more stabilization. If you find yourself working extra hard to get that solid, strong core and a visible six pack, you may want to explore the benefits of ab workouts with dumbbells 💪🏽🔥💪🏽 #trainsmart#abs#core#dumbbells#workoutwednesday#justdoit#fitbeast#zeroinjuriesglobal#zeroinjuries

Confidence vs Arrogance Confidence knowing your strengths and working on your weaknesses with a humble approach to both. Arrogance- Knowing your strengths and weaknesses and ignoring faults while flaunting a false image of yourself. A true self evaluation is a must. What you may think is normal, could be toxic. Check your influences and find trusted people that have similar goals that can help keep you in check! Don’t just talk about it, be about it. talking to a buddy of mine he also said “I think arrogance might not always assume to recognize weakness internally but quickly recognize it in others.” Have a great Hump Day!! #confidence#thisisme#pushforward
This week for #workoutwednesday I’m sharing with you a portion of what I have been doing this month for my Strength & Core Class at my “big girl” job. In this class I focus on working the whole body through complex/hybrid movement circuits working from different joint angles (to target different parts of the muscle and to add variation to movements that we tend to do ALL THE TIME). While there are some isolation exercises, I focus on complex/hybrid movements because I only have 45 minutes with my clients and that includes the warm up and cool down! Due to this I have to work them SMART AND HARD. At work I am lucky to have all heights of boxes and am showing the moves on the two boxes that I use in class--but if you don’t have boxes you can use a bench, step benches, stairs, or a chair. Other equipment you’ll need are weights either dumbbells, kettlebells or both. This workout takes about 30ish minutes and I follow it up with partner medicine ball exercises like squat tosses, standing woodchoppers, sit up passes, plank passes (2x1 min each). You can do those if you’d like or just skip them. I won’t know if you do them or not 😉. Enjoy! Video 2x. Exercises 2x15: Set 1) Goblet Box Squats, Incline Mountain Climbers, Incline Shoulder Tap Planks Set 2) Single Leg Step Up, 1 Arm Rows, Push Ups (forget to video), REPEAT LEFT Set 3) Lateral Step Up, Bi & Tri Complex, Incline Crunches, REPEAT LEFT Set 4) Incline Bridges w/ Weight, Reverse Grip 1 Arm Triceps/1 Arm Skullcrushers, Pullovers LMK if you try this or have any questions! #wednesdayworkout#kettlebellworkout#dumbbells#chicksthatlift#weighttraining#imovie#fullbodyworkout#wsncfitness#winstonsalemfitness#squatbooty#stepups#functionalfitness#worksmartandhard#exercisephysiologist#personaltraining#corporatefitness #💪 #circuittrainingworkout#winstonsalem
