Namaste friends. Back with my favorite kind of posts: a workout post.
Here I’m doing a spider push-up and I’m really sad I didn’t get a better angle because this is a great full-body exercise and great for the obliques, for the ladies out there trying to get their abs on.
I used to struggle so much with push-ups because I had weak arms but I practiced them everyday and finally learned how to do them. I started out on my knees and could barely get five in. Gradually that number rose and before I knew it I was doing full-body push-ups.
And I still practice them because there are so many of them and you can always get better. This is one of my favorites: the plyo push-up.. Again, sorry that the pictures were taken from the front view. I’ll try to get a side view of these in another post.
You have to start from somewhere. No one was born super fit. Everyone has a starting point. Granted, we all start from different points, and we all have different bodies and different abilities…but that change your hoping for, that health, that fitness level, that strength, that body that you want, it won’t come by sitting on your butt. You have to work for it honey.
I forget what these are called but they’re also from X3. Basically you shoot your legs up and come down very slowly so that your arms work. And when your feet finally hit the floor, so a push-up and the repeat.
Does that make sense? lol
Now, on to the outfit. I’m wearing one of the most comfortable things I’ve ever worked out in and it’s this cropped top for VS Sport. They are originally quite pricey for something you’re going to sweat out but I got a good deal on them plus they are quite fashionable; you can pair them with your favorite bottoms and be on your merry way.
Look at my hair flying around like little Alfalfa.
I prefer to workout in shorts over capris or pants but I have a few capris and pants for the few occasions when I need to wear workout clothes outside my home for example when I’m traveling and I have to use the gym or when we have an office obatacle course and I don’t want to be walking around in booty shorts in front of my boss, etc.
