CONGRATS for nearly making it through all of #ABTOBERFEST! You have one more day. Then get ready for craziness beginning on Friday. #NOVEMBURN kicks off “100 Day”. Uh oh.
What does that mean? It means it’s 6 very specific moves done 100 times each. Since you’re probably squinting your eyes trying to see what they are…lemme just tell you:
1. 100 jumping jacks
2. 100 sit ups (NOT CRUNCHES)
3. 100 squats (go all the way down and all the way up…these are NOT pulses)
4. 100 criss crosses (make sure to pronate your opposite shoulder to opposite knee)
5. 100 bridge pulses (to make it harder, add a barbell, books, or weights on your pelvic area. Cushion with towels and hold with your hands)
6. 100 chest press pulses (keep those elbows together and make sure you’re going from shoulder height to nose height will pulsing)
Friday you are only required to do this, no other videos, but you MUST go all out. It’s not THAT long but I need 100% intensity from you. Put on your fave song and just GO.
Saturdays are cardio dance days!! And…you are going to LOVE the new exclusive video for the month! I designed a workout called The Total Body Toner that will seriously make you sore all over. It misses no muscle. No equipment necessary! This workout comes as a bonus with the Calendar subscription in the app which is only 99c. (Just to clarify, the app is FREE to download on iPhone and Android!) But if you want that vid to download and own, you can always get it on shopblogilates.com (will be posting it soon).

I wanna feature YOU!!!
I really really really hope you like this new series on Quest’s YouTube Channel!! We put in a lot of work to make the food look and taste great for you. It was awesome being in a new kitchen with so many cameras shooting the cooking process. So important getting those close-ups so that you can feel like you’re tasting it with me. Throughout the past 3 years of being on YouTube, I’ve learned sooooo much more about the film industry than I could have ever imagined. Back in the day, I started with a handycam, a little tripod, and the worst editing software in the history of editing softwares (Windows Movie Maker – cough cough). Nowadays, it is so inspiring to see how YouTube has become like the next TV. How cool is that?
Anyway!! Make sure you’re subscribed to Quest and to me for new recipes and workouts EVERY WEEK!
