8 Min Abs & Obliques Workout // POP Pilates!
HAPPY 1st FULL WEEK OF JULY!!! Here’s a new video for you! 8 Minutes of Abs & Obliques amazingness. This routine is actually super fun, so hit play and give it a shot! You will love the “crunch twists” throughout.
So far y’all are looking fantastic on the #journeytosplits challenge! Look, you’re even stretching on the water! SO COOL GUYS. KEEP IT UP.
This weekend I enjoyed a low key celebration for July 4th. I had a small BBQ and also made this USA fruit flag! Pretty easy and super impressive wouldn’t you say? I made a smoothie after just out of the flag ingredients (blueberries, bananas, and strawberries) plus almond milk and ice…and it was SUPERB!!! You must try!
Saturday we decided to relax and not work AT ALL. (Very rare for me.) So instead of touching the computer we went on a hunt for one of my fave desserts of all time. Have you ever been to Disneyland? Have you ever tried Dole Whip? If you have, you understand how I am IN LOVE with this! It’s basically a soft serve pineapple ice cream!! Until Saturday I did not know that you could even buy this stuff outside of Disney! But lo and behold…
DOLE WHIP!!!!! If you’re ever in LA, check out Whipp’d LA. You won’t need to pay the Disneyland admission ($99 for a day pass plus probably $6-8 for a cone half the size of this) to get a taste. This baby was like 3 bucks! AND SO SO GOOD. YAY!!!
Tomorrow your #journeytosplits challenge is the Day 6 supported side splits!
Grab a yoga block, pillow, or some books to place under your front thigh. I would try to do this every day actually after your foundational stretches (1-5) to see your splits progression. PLEASE remember to be stretching AT LEAST 10 min a day. If you are serious about getting into the side splits, you must listen to these directions. Flexibility takes time and your body needs the gradual progression.
Alrighty…see you soon on Snapchat!
