Schedule your workout time!

 

Book one hour Mon-Saturday in your Schedule and that is going to be your workout time.

 

One hour may sound like a lot but it is only 4% of your entire day.

 

Research has shown that people who do their workouts first thing in the morning are more successful at sticking to their workout routines.

 

If you cannot schedule your workouts in the morning that’ s okay just schedule it at the best time of day that works for you!

 

You must schedule your workout time because it’s just as important as any business meeting or beauty appointment this is the appointment for your health! If it is not on your schedule then you probably won’t do it. This is just as important as brushing your teeth, combing your hair or taking a shower. This is your internal hygiene to improve your blood flow, internal organs, hormone distribution, mental strength, focus, happiness and so much more. If everyone could see your internal organs like they can see your hair and your face maybe more people would recognize the importance of regular exercise. Exercise is the one thing you can do everyday that doesn’t cost a thing and decreases your risk of EVERY disease so no more excuses, you deserve to be healthy!

 

 

Here is our Week 1 Workout Schedule. It is important to work all of the components of fitness (cardio, muscular strength, muscular endurance and flexibility) to maximize fat burning, reduce overuse injuries, improve overall function and longevity of the body! Feel free to substitute any of the workouts with whatever works for you, your body and your schedule. Just make sure you get it done! No Excuses!

Sexy Abs Cardio Sculpt 6-Week Bootcamp Challenge with Kelly Rowland & Jeanette Jenkins! Measurements! Let’s Get Started!

Featured

_MG_3061

Let’s Get Started! Measurements!

Take your measurements as soon as possible and we will all re-measure the body composition measurements every Friday to monitor your progress. It is important that you do not measure your success by just the scale but you also take body fat percentages, body circumferences/inches, fitness levels (cardio, strength, endurance, flexibility), health measurements (cholesterol, blood pressure, resting heart rate) and before photos.

All of these Measurements will create Your Personal Fitness Profile!

Link to download “Your Personal Fitness Profile” Measurement Chart!
Your Personal Fitness Profile Master Sheet of Measurements

Measurements
1) Before Photo
Take 4 head to toe before photos: one frontal, one back, one left side and one right side. Wear a sports bra and shorts or workout pants and photograph in the same outfit each week.

2) Body Measurements
Body Weight (Use the same scale every week and measure at the same time of day, wearing the same clothes or no clothes)
BMI Center for Disease Control’s BMI Calculator
Body Fat Percentage (Bathroom scale, handheld device or calipers but use the same every week)

Body Circumference Measurements
Take measurements in inches with a measuring tape.

Upper Arm (right under the armpit)
1.Right
2. Left
Upper Thigh (right under the buttocks)
3. Right
4. Left
Mid Thigh (exact middle of thigh between hip to knee)
5. Right
6.Left
7. Chest (at nipple line)
8. Neck (middle)
9. Hips (around the highest peak of the buttocks when standing with heels together)
10. Waist (at belly button)
11. Waist (at smallest point)
Total Body Measurements 1-11

3) Health Measurements
Resting Heart Rate

Make an appointment with your Doctor to measure Blood Pressure & Cholesterol Levels and re-measure at the end of the 6 week Bootcamp
Blood Pressure & Cholesterol Level

4) Fitness Levels
1. Cardiovascular Fitness Test –VO2Max– Rockport Fitness Walking Test
2. Muscular Endurance Test: Abdominals
3. Muscular Endurance Test: Lower Body /Squats
4. Muscular Strength Test: Abdominals
5. Muscular Strength Test: Upper Body/Push-ups
6. Flexibility Test

Fitness Test Instructions are all from Chapter 7 of my book “The Hollywood Trainer Weight-Loss Plan”

We have listed several tests so you can measure your progress in many areas so you don’t get discouraged if your weight doesn’t instantly change. There are many factors that affect your body weight, like sodium intake which causes bloating, nutrition, hydration/dehydration, body fat percentage, allergies, weight training, menstrual cycle, complex carbohydrates, hormones, medication and much more. That is why it is important to also measure your fitness levels, health parameters & complete body composition because one week you may not lose numbers on the scale but you lose 2 inches around your waist, 1 inch off your thighs and increase your strength to 10 push-ups on your toes!

The success of your journey is much more than the numbers on the scale. It is important to track your body weight but it is not the only number we want to focus on. We want to make sure you are improving in all areas of health and fitness, complete mind, body & spirit!

 

Keep track of your numbers because Kelly & I will be asking for your final measurements and stories at the end of 6 weeks! We are putting together a Fabulous Grand Prize for the most inspiring 6week Sexy Abs Cardio Sculpt Bootcamp Journey!

 

We are so exited to take this amazing Journey with YOU!

Let’s make 2014 Amazing!

 

Love,

AEROBIC BASE TRAINING

 

beginner

Aerobic base is the heart-rate range where you can exercise comfortably for long periods of time (20 to 60 minutes or more) without stopping. This is the most important type of training for a beginner exerciser. Of the three types of cardio/aerobic training described in The Hollywood Trainer Weight-Loss Plan, this is the form that is lowest in intensity, requiring you to maintain a steady heart rate that is between 50 and 75 percent of your maximum heart rate for 20 minutes or longer.  A half-hour power walk that elevates your heart rate to 65 percent of your maximum heart rate is a good example. During aerobic exercise, your body is using oxygen to create energy to keep going, oxygen that, in turn, your body uses to burn fat and sugar. The more you condition your aerobic base, the more you will strengthen your heart and lungs, the more efficient you will become at using fat as a fuel source, and the easier it will be to function in your everyday life without running out of breath or energy. Just as you have to walk before you run, you have to train your aerobic base before you can move up to higher intensities of training. You can use a heart-rate monitor to keep track of your heart rate during your workout.

WHAT’S HOT

Sweating in Style

Studies have proven that when you look and feel good in your fitness attire you are motivated to exercise harder.  You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a new wardrobe. Start by picking up a few pieces that are comfortable, fit you well and make you feel confident.

The best and longest lasting workout clothes are made with Dri-Fit fabrics that pull your perspiration away from your skin so you don’t feel damp. Many different companies have various names for Dri-Fit material, so it is important to read the tags, which will describe the benefits of the material and clearly state whether the fabric has Dri-Fit qualities.

Exercise of the Month

Medial Deltoid Lifts in a Chair Pose with Side Leg Reach

This single move will tone your Shoulders, Back, Glutes, Abs and Legs.

  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 large egg whites, beaten

Using clean hands, combine the ground turkey, basil, sage, sea salt, and pepper in a small bowl. In a medium skillet over medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic with half of the olive oil for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the seasoned turkey and continue to cook, until the turkey is cooked through, stirring constantly. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Remove the turkey mixture from the skillet with a slotted spoon and discard any excess fat, wiping the skillet with paper towel. Lightly coat the skillet with the remaining olive oil and heat again over medium. Return the turkey mixture to the skillet, add the egg whites, and sauté for 2 minutes, or until the egg whites are completely cooked.

Meditation Through Visualization

With summer here, it seams perfectly fitting to indulge the mind, body and soul in a meditation exercise that involves visualizing the ocean.

  1. Find a comfortable place to sit and relax. Close your eyes and calm your body by breathing slowly and steadily.
  2. Inhale feel your lungs expand, then exhale feel your body relax.
  3. Close your eyes and hear the ocean rolling in and crashing against the shore.
  4. Visulaize the clear blue ocean, smell the salt in the air.
  5. Feel the healing, invigorating sea air blowing across your skin and the warmth of the sun penetrating your arms, legs and face.
  6. Enjoy this time to relax, be joyous, and continue to breath

Recipe of the Month

Halibut With Mango Salsa

Here’s a great recipe that adds color to your summer BBQ plate! The mango salsa gives great flavor to the halibut (or chicken if you don’t eat fish), and due to the density of the halibut, you will definitely feel satisfied when you are finished eating. 

2 servings

  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • ½ small red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1 whole green onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 2 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt or Himalayan salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a medium bowl, combine the mango, red pepper, tomato, green onion, ginger, garlic, lime juice, and cilantro. Mix well, cover, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Season the fish filets lightly with sea salt or Himalayan salt and pepper. Place in a nonstick baking dish. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until flesh is white and opaque. Drizzle the mango salsa over the fish and serve immediately.

Nutritional Information Per Serving:
357 calories – 46g protein – 29g carbohydrates – 4g fiber – 5g fat – 416mg sodium

21 Days to Make Healthy Living a Lifetime Habit

NUTRITION TIP:
Staying Cool for Summer
Keeping hydrated during summertime is essential to your overall fitness success. I recommend that you drink half your body weight in ounces (Example: If you are 130 lbs., drink about 65 ounces a day). It seems like a lot, but if you consistently have a regular 16 oz. bottle of water on hand, you’ll reach that goal easily and you will not have any problem getting the proper hydration as the temperature rises!

THE IMPORTANCE OF STRENGTH TRAINING

668631f8c9fe11e2a8b922000a1f8ac2_7

There are many reasons I advocate integrating resistance (or strength) training that effectively improves your muscular strength and muscular endurance, but the key three are:

1. Resistance training will help you burn more body fat. The muscle cell is the site in the body where your body fat is burned off as fuel. The more actively you train and develop your muscles, the more fuel they will need. The more fuel they need, the more fat and sugar they will draw from the store in your body, leaving less to settle in around your waistline! Strength training thus boosts your metabolism, helping you burn more calories even when you are at rest.

2. Strength training is important to avoid injury and reduce stress on the body. It is essential for your long-term, overall health to fortify the muscles, bones, and connective tissues that form the infrastructure of your body. Every great athlete knows the importance of training their bodies so they are resilient enough to endure the stresses of their sport. Your body needs the same kind of preventative care. Whether you power walk, jog, cycle, step, hike, or simply run around with the kids, any cardio exercise that you are doing will put repetitive stress on your joints and bones — particulary your knees, ankles, and feet — and your lower back. The more weight you carry, the more stress you are putting on your body. If you take care to strengthen your body’s framework, you will reduce your susceptibility to injury, as well as to serious problems like osteoporosis and arthritis.

3. Last but certainly not least, resistance training is the only way you’re going to get that beautiful, sexy, toned look. By adding tension to your muscles, you can achieve the sculpted lines in your legs, butt, abs, and arms that you know you want.

Not sure how or where to start? I recommend getting the ”Hollywood Trainer Weight Loss Plan“. The book comes with 4 workouts on DVD and over 80 healthy recipes. To make sure you achieve those beautiful sculpted lines, total body resistance training (muscular strength and muscular endurance) with dumbbells and calisthenics is integrated into the “Chest, Tri’s and Booty Circuit”, “Back, Bi’s, and Thighs Circuit”, and “Core Workout”. It’s time to get the body you want and deserve!!

Long, Lean, Flexible & Toned

 power yoga  image

Every time you contract a muscle fiber you are shortening it. If your goal is to have long lean muscle fibers instead of short stalky muscle fibers, then you must balance contracting with lengthening. Yoga, Ballet, Pilates and Static Stretching all have movements that focus on lengthening the muscle fibers. Five minutes of stretching at the end of a workout is not enough to lengthen your muscles or improve your range of motion. Try a full hour or 45 minutes of lengthening. Lengthening a muscle fiber is work and you will have muscle soreness the next day. You are still tearing down muscle fiber, but you are tearing down to lengthen the muscle, instead of tearing down to shorten, as in most cardio or strength training workouts.

You can add Jeanette’s Power Yoga, Yoga, or Pilates workouts to your exercise regimen once or twice per week. Click the links below to get the workouts:
