Fitness Fairy

If you had a fitness fairy godmother and you could only ask her for one thing chances are you'd ask her for the same thing I'd ask for, a six pack/ abs/slim tummy.

For some reason my genetics thought it would be funny to give me a fat tummy. Before I had Leilani and was actively going to track practice I still had a fat pouch on the bottom of my stomach. In fact it doesnt matter how skinny or fit I get my stomach still looks fat. (The last part might be all in my head but I swear its true!) After switching to vegetarianism the pouch has greatly reduced but it's still there.

All my life it never mattered how many sit-ups or crunches I'd do it was still the same. After getting tired of doing that I did the only logical thing a girl could do, I Googled.

Upon Googling I found my fitness fairy, total body workouts.
Basically I found two key things that would help me get my six pack abs.
Total body work outs and weights.

Lifting weights creates an after burn effect so after you are done working out and lifting, the muscle you are developing burns the fat you don't want.

Then the biggest trigger to a six pack abs is total body workouts. Anatomically the placement of your stomachs is harder to reach. Think about it, every other part of your body can be isolated and worked out individually execept your stomach.

This is why total body workouts are essential. They target your WHOLE BODY. No part is left out and the best part is your whole body is getting a workout. While doing total body workouts you are targeting your arms, legs, butt and stomach all at once!

Since I started doing total body workouts and weights I have seen a huge difference in my body. It's not as tone as I would like but it's not as fatty which is much more important to me!

Below is a video of some of the Total Body Work outs I like to do. Warning this girls body will make you dizzy and the work out is A LOT harder than it looks. Lol
