Sweatin’ on Saturday

Helllloooooo!  I will be going for a short run and finishing up some pilates today before tailgating with buddies, but I wanted to share a move with you first.  It’s my first vlog post, so I hope you like it.  Stefanie mentioned creating a weekend blog-hop party, so you can see if other bloggers have linked up exercises, routines, and fitness inspiration at her site, The New Healthy.

Okay… on with the exercise.  This is a cross-back lunge.  It works your quads, booty, and that annoying saddlebag area.  It also kind of incorporates your core, especially when done “at tempo.”

It’s worth noting that I do not believe in spot-reduction.  You can tone certain areas, but you can’t just lose extra flab around one area, like your hips, butt, thighs, nose, or whatever.  Nevertheless, who doesn’t want a toned tush???  Exactly!  Now on with the video…

Thanks for bearing through that atrocious video.  I guess I could have re-recorded, but I’m a busy girl.  I could have also not worn a “Southern Comfort” shirt, but it’s one of my favorite workout tanks.

After your workout, don’t forget to refuel!
