As many of you might know, I love working out every day, this is a part of my day’s routine that I really enjoy and I’ve been showing you here and in my Instagram, some of the routines I enjoy and give me the best results, however I know that not everybody enjoy the same workout style and I know that specially in working out, enjoyment is key in avoiding you casually “forget” all about it!
This is a powerful workout, designed to give your body that boost It sometimes requires and it is designed in circuits, so if you want to try it, remember to complete the whole circuit before starting the next one:
You’re going to repeat the next 2 exercises for 20 min without stopping, and this is important, once your 20 minutes end, you get to rest for 2 minutes (yes, only two minutes) and start the second circuit.
1. With a Slam Ball or a medicine ball of 20 lbs aprox, step on the bench 15 times with each leg (30 times in total)
2. Continue with 12 squat presses with each arm (24 in total)
3. Next do 20 shoulder presses
Breath, hydrate, take 2 minutes to rest and go for the second circuit!
As with the first circuit, you’re going to repeat these exercises during 20 minutes without stopping:
1. 15 reps of butterfly squats
2. 15 push up presses.
3. 10 burpees
4. 20 kicks to the workout sandbag
Once you finish your second circuit, you’re done! Remember to hydrate yourself as it’s super important that you take good care of yourself, as you’re doing these workouts to take care of yourself and give your body what it needs to stay healthy and in to be the best version of itself!
Here I’ll list you the gear I’d recommend for this super workout:
* As you all know, I only recommend products I’d use myself, so this post contains affiliate links, that means if you use them to make a purchase I may receive a commission from that sale.
An finally, as I’ll always recommend you, check with your doctor first if you’re not sure if this workout is for you or have any concern or doubt about the exercises, stretch and warm up before ANY workout (hereI have some warm up exercises you can try) and cool off once you’re done with your workout, take a shower after that and you’re ready to go on with your day!
What other kind of workouts would you like me to show you? Is there anything in particular you’d like to see and learn? Let me know!
My next show for today (July 6th if you’re reading this later) was Ralph & Russo’s show and it was amazing! I’m enjoying very much the way every house is showing what makes them unique and reminding us through every step the things we love about the brand.
Ralph & Russo presented their muse for this collection: Hauli (a traditional Swahili name signifying strength and power). What’s different about this muse? That she’s an avatar! Tamara Ralph commented: “Hauli is so much more to us than the means to show digitally this season; she represents the brand and all of the values that we stand for. She is the ultimate modern woman; fusing both old and new, elegance and strength, and stands with the brand as a positive force for change”. And I don’t think that there’s a better way to describe Hauli, you need to see her to be able to appreciate what she transmits!
And if that was not enough Hauli presents the collection against the seven contemporary wonders of the world: Petra, Taj Mahal, Chichen Itzá, Machu Picchú, Christ the Redeemer, Great Wall of China and the Colosseum. And the effect when mixing technology and nature, creates a different kind of fantasy.
The collection was outstanding, and although due to the pandemic it was impossible to have the 52 pieces of the collection tailored, we are able to see the 52 sketches of the whole collection, and I’d recommend that if you want to remember the artistic part of fashion, see each one of these sketches and pay attention to the level of detail in each one, look how each feather was meticulously drawn and placed where it should be, how each fold is measured and placed exactly where it needs to be, who said fashion is nor art? (And how is it you make a sketch glow?)
My two favorite pieces of this collection were the ones featured in the Colosseum and Christ the Redeemer.
There’s only one word to describe this white dress: astonishing. I’m sure that a lot of women started fantasizing with this dress (me included of course!) exactly the way we used to fantasize about that perfect dress when we were just little girls!
And this little pink dress, looks sweet and fierce at the same time. And I think that would be the perfect way to describe this collection: beautiful, inspiring and strong.
Did you see this show? And the sketches? Which were your favorite pieces? Were you as excited as I clearly am?
