CRAZIEST Ab Flattening Waist Whittling Workout EVER!
First before I say anything…ANNOUNCEMENT!! I am going to be on The Dr. Oz Show this Wed March 19th with my beautiful POPsters teaching Dr. Oz himself how to do POP Pilates! OMG I can’t believe it!! Eeeee!! REPRESENT! Check your local listings to see when it airs in your area. Please take pics of your TV screen! Haha : D I am such a big fan of his show so to be on it was a dream come true!
Ok back to our normal programming…
I’ve been telling you all week since I filmed the Waist Whittlers 100 Challenge: THIS IS THE HARDEST, MOST DIFFICULT CORE WORKOUT I HAVE EVER DONE IN MY LIFE!
This routine is no joke. So, let me give you some disclaimers first.
– Use a yoga mat. Do not do this straight on the carpet. You could get rug burns.
– If you begin to feel like you’re about to collapse and your muscles are giving out, do the beginner modification I demonstrated.
– If you need to stop, take a break.
– Make sure you keep your tailbone tucked and your belly button in the whole time – don’t dip your low back!
Now…what is this!!??
Well, when filmed this workout I wanted to do something crazy that I wasn’t sure if I could actually accomplish. Something that would make be suffer. So I told myself, why don’t I try 100 Waist Whittlers (hip twists to butt lifts) – something I had never even close to try to attempt in my life. I thought, even if I fail and even if it’ll be on camera for all of you to see, it’ll be fine.
Ha…good thing I didn’t really think this through…’cuz I’m not sure if I would have gotten myself into this position to begin with.
Let me just say this. I have not felt this CRAZY INTENSITY in my abs since I first started doing Pilates 11 years ago. Yup. 11 years ago. I sweated. I screamed. I was writhing with pain. The next day, when I looked in the mirror, I actually saw a separation in my upper ab muscles. Change people. Change. It comes when you take yourself outside your comfort zone.
I now dare YOU to take the Waist Whittlers 100 Challenge with me. It will attack your obliques, your abs, your shoulders, your legs, and your back. Even if you get through 10, if you do 11 tomorrow, you are getting better – you are getting STRONGER!! Don’t stop til you make it! And you will. I know it.
Ok lemme know in the comments below, how many you did!!
