A special thank you to Propel Water for bringing us together and sponsoring this post! If you are in L.A. make sure to get your tickets to the fitness festival today. Click here for more on the sweat fueled event!
Last week I had the opportunity to travel to IDEA World Fitness Blogfest with Propel ElectrolyteWater. Propel Electrolyte Water has created innovative and fun fitness CO:LABS nation-wide for an incredible sweat-fueled series that will culminate with a fitness festival in L.A. August 12-13.
At BlogFest we were able to dive deeper into powerful topics in this ever-changing and growing market that is fitness blogging which was fantastic, but I would have to say the best part about attending was the S-W-E-A-T and spending time with my favorite blogger babes! The first morning in town the ladies and I decided to meet at 6:30 A.M. for a team workout! There is strength in numbers and we created a quick circuit of medicine ball lunges and squat presses, burpees, treadmill sprints and Spiderman planks. It was just what the doctor ordered to get used to the desert air and get our mind and bodies ready to take on the day. Over the course of the two days we also had our Propel Workout where we took a low weight-high rep class the Victoria Secret Angels made famous: ModelFIT Sculpt. You may have even seen my Instagram Live from that workout, and I am truly sorry for the many shots of my boo-tay (pun intended). I had to set it up quickly, but if you missed it this workout is similar to barre in that it helps your body create the long-lean muscle mass that many women covet.
We also had the opportunity to try Strong by Zumba which admittedly was one of the hardest classes I have taken in a long time. We rounded out the week with Pop Pilates by Cassey Ho. Cassey is a YouTube sensation and now I can see why! Her energy was off the charts and it was the perfect core driven class to lengthen and tone.
The ladies and I were so inspired by the week that we wanted to team up and create a workout exclusively for you…our fabulous readers!
- Start with a Cardio Burst from Amber of Every Once in a Style
- Move on to Arms with Jeana of A Sweat Life
- Get that booty burn with Legs and Booty Blast with me!
- Follow it up with Abs from Torey’s Treasures
- And finish up with flexibility/regeneration with To Live and Diet in LA
Next up is my leg and booty blaster:
Repeat each exercise for 1 minute each 3x through!
Place the band around your thighs making sure it is not around your knees. Start with your feet hip distance apart and squat down. Straighten your and extend your leg at the top. Do 30 seconds on the right and 30 seconds on the left.
Place the band around your ankles and perform jumping jacks for one minute.
If you need balance find a wall or a chair. With your feet parallel pitch your body forward and your leg backwards before pulling in and driving the knee up. Perform this exercise for 30 seconds on right and 30 seconds on the left.
Sit on the floor with one leg square in front of you and one knee over the there. Flex your foot and kick your leg back. Bring your arms to prayer position for more of a challenge. Perform 30 seconds on the right and 30 seconds on the left.
I hope you enjoyed our workout. Make sure to follow all of the other blogs for some MAJOR fitness and fashion inspiration you cannot miss!
