Each girl has their own priority and target zone they wish to improve in her body. Many of us have their preference to have a nice butt and legs (and let’s be honest – who doesn’t like to have a nice booteeey? I do that’s why my target focus are my legs and butt. Even when i have 1 possibility a week to have a training – I will always go for a leg day, even when traveling focusing my training for legs s biggest muscle group of the body and also the one who shreds the most of fat when in action.

There some effective training for legs and back so here are some of mine that does not requires lot of space nor equipment so feel free to try this at home. Read More

June has been one crazy month with non stop travelling. Managed to visit Florence, Genoa, Nervi (in Italy), Lisbon, Porto, Ericeira and everything in between along the coast for pleasure, for pleasure but Berlin, Duisburg, Dusseldorf, and on top of that – Las Vegas for work. In short – I spent rushing from one place to another and trying to squeeze in all the works and duties, wedding organization and everyday tasks. And of course not forgetting about gym as well.

When traveling for work I always try to find a hotel with gym in it, but if not possible – going for a run in a nearest park if weather allows or workout at my room.

This time I was lucky as had been staying in this wonderful Vdara hotel and Spa at Las Vegas that had a great gym facilities. Here are some insight from my 6 am gym session. (Must say that noticed that gyms in Vegas are fuller at 6 am than at 10 am, guess jet lag and dedication is playing a big role there as well). Read More

Travel, Workout

If been following my adventures than already know that last week were in Tel Aviv for work and as were there for 4 days than I had to adjust my workout schedule to the travel one doing my workouts on the road. Luckily form me in my hotel (Carlton – which, BTW, is A-mazing!) had also gym facilities so put my mind on peace and packed my workout equipment before hitting the road. 

As a determined lady who never skips leg day, I woke up along with the sunrise and to hit the gym. Not because I would be an early bird, but because when I am on the road there is just no way to find a time for an evening workout so prefer to rise with the birds to have one.

Isn’t the view lovely? This view is definitely worth the early wake up despite the hard time getting out of the bed. Read More

I believe Leg day is one of the most made fun (right after burpees) of and most created hate-memes on internet, however it is love-hate relationship ( guilty as charged), we say we hate them but we love the benefits of it. Let’s be honest – who doesn’t like a round, lifted and shaped booty and lean legs?  (and if you say: me! you are probably lying to yourself!)

I know Leg day can be scary as it involves moving to the scary part of the gym – the free weights and machines zone, that usually are full just with the guys and it gets pretty intimidating when a girl gets there. I know, because I have been there, not knowing what I am doing, what others are thinking of me and risking to be ridiculous. However after a while, when you get the right mindset and preparation it gets better.

The preparation is everything to use the heavy weights in a gym: the correct mindset, inspiring workout playlist (+ I-am-not-here-to-talk face) and a training schedule or exercise plan.

They say the good preparation is a half victory of the battle and I couldn’t agree more. I always have my workout playlist ready and a exercise plan with me to stay focused and give the 100% of myself of the training. 

I have already wrote about Leg Day exercises and even made a video to show how to. (Check it here).

As we know the workout routines should be switched periodically to constantly challenge your body and improve it than here is some new leg day workout schedule to try out.

Workout

it’s been just 4th day of my vacations but already seems that I have been here for 2 weeks as so many things has been done already – Bachelorette party, home warming parties, sightseeing, baby seeing, friend gatherings and so many more things, like workout and being trained by TeamFisher. Must say got some issues with stairs and hair combing the next day but you know what they say – better sore than sorry. I am totally not sorry, just sore.

 

Usually when I go to gym I like to train alone to concentrate better but time to time it’s important that someone couch you and push you harder and and check your performance and I had a perfection occasion to improve my performance by training with professional athletes – with TeamFisher.

The video is a little preview – how my leg day goes. These are some suggestions what girls can do for legs to build definition of for legs and butt. No! you will not become muscular like a body builder if you lift weights – not happening! Look at me, if you don’t believe me. I lift heavy weights for 2 years already and still not getting bulky – just seeing some better shapes – that’s all. SO don’t be afraid to touch the weights at gym and ask for an advice to a professional trainer.

My video leg day routine goes like this:

warm up for legs.

4 sets of 15 repetitions for all exercises with 1min pause in between. (weight per choice or possibilities. If you are a beginner – start with lower weights and increase over time)

  • Squat
  • Leg press
  • Walking lunges with weights
  • Stiff legged deadlift with barbell
  • Lying leg curls
  • Seated Leg curl

 

Some of the exercises are in my weekly schedule as I am working for that butt lifting and having nice legs).

What About you? What’s your target to improve in your body??

P.S. The T-shirt is appropriate as it was a Monday workout.

It’s official! Summer is here and the weather is getting hotter and hotter every day and it means that all those skirts and shorts should be taken out from the bottom of our closets to show off too the world. Of course with the short skirts and hot pants comes also the will to look great in them and this is where tall those hours spent at gym and working out we did at Winter and Spring comes handy, but it does not mean that the exercises should finish there just because summer is here. In contrary  should continue or even work harder to maintain and improve and this is what I am up to right now – as by the end of July is my second check-in of my workout and diet challenge to get on a great shape.

In June I put emphasis on core and booty, so it means – more HIIT and exercises for lower body to make it even more toned, shaped and lifted – because you cannot have too round booty). If also you would like to incorporate some new exercises to lift your booty and have leaner legs here are 5 exercises that can be performed even at home.

This one consists of really basic exercises and can be done either gym or home. Try incorporate or start this 2 week challenge and you will see how your body will change and improve!  Read More
