Hey guys!

New video! It’s my 5 best fat burning moves in 5 minutes! Ugh. I did not want to film this video. But we all know HIITs are good for us, so I did burpees for you. Enjoy 🙂 My 5 best cardio moves are:

1. Star Jumps

2. In n Out Donkey Kicks

3. Burpees

4. Mountain Climbers

5. Split Squat Jumps

Now…Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely Easter Weekend! Let’s have a lil recap shall we?

It started off with a trip back to the Bay! Friday, I visited my sister at Crunch and she taught me how to do an inversion for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE!!! LOOK!!


I was sooooo scared. See, if you know me, you’d know that I can’t handle roller coasters, heights, or being upside down. I really didn’t want to do this but after much coaxing from certified yogi sis Jackelyn…I shocked myself. I could do a headstand!!?? Yes, I am assisted by a wall, but nonetheless…I never ever ever thought this was possible! A reminder to you to stop holding yourself back from doing amazing things. We all have it in us! We just gotta let ourselves go. Once I get this down, I will do a video with sis to show you how to do it too!


What other yoga moves or poses do you want to learn?


The next day Jackelyn and I surprised mommy and daddy with a lovely lunch at Espetus Churrascaria for their birthday! (They have the same one but are a year apart.) It was their first time at a Brazilian Restaurant and we all had so much fun eating and eating and eating 🙂 Over the years I have taught myself how NOT to die of “bloatation” from a buffet! I used to go and just stuff my face to “make my money’s worth.” Haha, I think it’s an Asian thing you learn as you grow up. But now, I eat what I want and appreciate the sheer fact that I can eat VARIETY. A little taste of this and a little taste of that. So good!


Speaking of so good…this Brazilian cheese bread is the death of me. I love it. Let’s just say that Saturday was YOLO Day and we made the YOLO gods proud 🙂


Sunday I biked to a nearby flower field with my mom and we had so much fun doing an impromptu photoshoot! The fields were blooming with millions of mustard plants and the yellow was MESMERIZING! My mom and I even french braided flower crowns.


Now I am back in LA and ready for a whole week of work before my first magazine cover shoot next week and…a Maui trip!!! Yes yes 🙂 I am shopping for tropical clothing and bikinis like a crazy person and I love it. It will be my first vacay in a LOOOONG time and I’m taking you with me to see the sights and the beauty that belongs to the islands. Don’t worry – you’ll still be working out with me as we begin MAY! What should we call the calendar by the way? Any ideas?


Ah! And I have a REALLLLYYY cool giveaway that I am doing with Quest! Every person that leaves a YouTube comment on the video, subscribes to the Quest Channel, and gives us your addy will receive 2 free Quest bars (watch video to see where to enter)! You don’t pay for shipping. It’s free-free 🙂 It’s open to all US POPsters! But all POPsters internationally and domestically are entered to win 17 FULL BOXES of bars…of every flavor every created! Thought this was super generous of Quest to do because…I think they’ll be shipping out TENS OF THOUSANDS of free bars to us hungry POPsters!


Love you so much. Keep training hard and being amazing.

<3 Cassey

    As video for fat burning,I can’t do!

  2. amp60 says:

    I would love to learn how to do an inversion!

    I would also really love to know how to do the fancy yoga jump from downward facing dog to forward fold. I’ve seen videos, and somehow they’re able to practically pause in the air and then softly and gracefully land into forward fold…

    Also the complete backbend in pigeon would be cool to learn. And side crow!

    Thanks, Cassey! You’re the best! I can’t wait for this new video! 😀 😀 😀

  3. Sarah says:

  13. Dani says:

  15. Maheen says:

  26. Joey W says:

    Someone in the forums on the app said they wanted a month filled with HIIT to burn fat and call it MAYDAY MAYDAY for the month; I second that vote! More cardio!

    1. Kayla says:

      omg that sounds like awesome death… O.O

    2. Agnes says:

      YES MAYDAY MAYDAY SOUNDS AWESOME! And like someone on facebook suggested you should do a video with running tips, because it’s spring and everybody want to burn the fat running outside in the sunshine 🙂

  27. faith woodland says:

  45. Meee :) says:

    1. Judith says:

      I like the OH MAY QUADS one 😀 I really want to focus on the legs, cause the summers coming and so are the shorts hehe 🙂

  46. milena says:

    I always love to hear news from you Cassey, you are sooo special

  47. Anna-Kaisa says:

    would love to learn the inversion, and any other yoga poses! Just a video dedicated to difficult poses/handstands would be awesome 🙂

  48. Emily says:

    A-MAY-zing Muscles 🙂

  49. Fulya Sudur says:

    What about #aMAYzingbody? Or if it is going to be specific like aprilabs, it can be like #aMAYzingbooty 🙂

  50. Rosa says:

    Can’t wait to learn how to do a headstand!! It’s always been my dream but I am VERY, I mean VERY, scared to be upside down or such things. I’m even scared when I have to do the roll up to roll over and I always do them in the beginner version >__<

  51. Nic says:

    MayMadness – total body stuff to really get you shredded for summer!

  52. Yum! Love Quest bars!!! And that video killed me…yikes.

  53. Izzy Burridge says:

    Cassey, this is my comment to win the international fan quest bar competition! thank you for covering us around the world, and thank you to quest! xx

  54. Izzy Burridge says:

    Cassey, I love your top in the flower field pics (you r beautiful btw) would you please tell me where its from?

  55. Allie says:

    I’d love for the May calendar to focus on toning up legs!

  56. Julia from Denmark says:

    Cassey I’d love to win this contest! I love in Denmark and have been dyyyyinnng to try these quest bars! I haven’t decided whether or not it’s worth to order some though so a few samples would be AMAZEBALLS. Oh and you totally KILLED ME today with your video, thank-you for that <3 🙂

    1. Michie says:

      oooh, aMAYzeballs

  57. Julia from Denmark says:

    Ohhhh Cassey I’ve been wanting to try these quest bars for such a long time now, and sadly Denmark is not a part of the US so I can’t get the two free bars 🙁 I hope I win a slot in the contest for the international POPstars though 😉 <3

  58. Jasmine K. says:

    “It’s Gonna Be May” Calendar. But I also like the “MAYniac” suggested upthread!

  59. Nina says:

    Bootay May or May for your bootay

  60. Katie says:

    I tried using the gymbunny coupon at checkout but it said it already expired..

  61. Cynia says:

    MuscleMay 🙂 Or MadMuscleMay.

  62. Eleos says:

    You and your family are so cute together ! What about aMAYzing? or MAYke it?

  63. Ashley says:

    Bikini May-hem.

  64. Britte says:

    Hey Cassey! Omg have fun in Maui!! Let’s call the next calendar MesmerizingMay!! <3 Britte

  65. Kat* says:

    Silly question, but do international peeps have to register addresses and such as well to be entered, or is that just for the US POPsters?? Thanks for yet another A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. giveaway Cassey, you’re awesome! <3 <3 <3

    1. Kat* says:

      P.S. What about “May-ke It Happen” as a calendar name?

      1. Hannah says:

        That is an awesome calendar ideal! Lots of cardio dancing and hiit videos.

        1. Kat* says:

          YES! I love the cardio dance sessions, they kill me yet I don’t even feel like I’m working out! 😀

  66. Looks like you had an amazing time with your family! I’m also going to Maui in June. It’s such a beautiful place to visit!

  67. Natasha says:

    Just letting you know that the “GYMBUNNY” discount code isn’t working ]:

  68. Great job on the inversion, I’ve only ever done them with assistance getting up. Looks great! Hope you enjoyed your time in the Bay. I call San Francisco home and love it here.

  69. Ella says:

    Muffintop May Madness!

  70. Mona says:

    I’d go for Mayday 😉

  71. Naomi says:

    Uhm maybe ‘MayohWay’ workout Calander?!

    1. Prerna Singh says:

      hahaha love your idea !!!

  72. Katrine Kleppe says:

    I can’t get to the sosial network and the todays work out! Help! I need my daily fix 🙂 What to do?

  73. Ayu says:

    You are so pretty!
    Why’d you haveta add star jumps whyyyyy?!?! Lol

  74. Leanne says:

    You and Jackelyn remind me so much of my sister and I. Can’t wait to see Maui pics!

  75. manganikagirl says:

    Hey Cassey !
    What about “MayComeTrue” for the may calender, so that all our weight loss, fitness,… wishes come true ?

  76. Emily says:

    May madness!! 🙂

  77. Millie says:

    I loved how April was focused on abs so could May possibly be focused on legs? I really want to tone them and become stronger for summer and I’m sure a lot of other POPsters would like to as well? 😀 <3

    1. Sarah says:

      Agreed! Lower body workouts for May! 🙂

  78. shumin says:

    OMG this video made my heart beat like crazy, love it!! For the May calendar, how about MAYniac?! xD

  79. Lara says:

    You could call it “May the force be with you” ahah
    And I would love to learn how to do flower crowns ! 🙂

  80. teilzeitDAU says:

    did we have crayMAYzing yet?:)

  81. Mickis says:

    I think the May calendar should be called something like “May your booty be lifted” or maybe that’s too long…
    Really pretty flower pictures by the way! Love it! <3

    1. Tini says:

      LOVE THIS IDEA!!!!

      “May your booty be lifted”


      <3 <3 <3

  82. Bella S says:

    I would love to see a clean eating guide for holidays. What is that you eat during the holidays so you can stick to your weight loss challenge?

  83. Christina says:

    Even though it seems very easy – I would love to see a video on how you did that flower crown ! 🙂

    1. Mona says:

      It’s on the fiterazzi magazine website 😉 http://www.fiterazzi.com/2014/04/02/diy-flower-crowns/

      1. Anna-Kaisa says:

        I think that one is actually different. I think Cassey and her mom just braided the flowers, and didnt use any wire or tape (like in the tutorial) not sure though!

        But yeah, I think I know how Cassey did the other one (I know how to french braid) but a tutorial would still be great… just in case 😉
