I can honestly say I have NEVER been a big fan of weight lifting. But....in this past 6 days of hard core working out combining weight with cardio...I have NEVER felt this GREAT after a workout...ever. I feel like super woman on crack when I am pushing those weights...and I am so excited to see the results it's going to bring me!
Cross-Leg Reverse Crunch: Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat on the ground. Bring both arms overhead and hold onto a heavy medicine ball (as shown). Cross your right ankle on top of your left knee. Exhale and lift your legs in as close to your chest as possible, lifting your hips and lower back off the floor. Inhale and slowly return to the starting position. That’s one rep.
Sideline Leg ABduction -- Targets your Gluteus Minimus & Medius aka Side Butt. Good at-home workout to make your butt round. Haha. I doubled my ankle weights. You can also use bands. Start on laying on one side with feet stacked on top of each other. Then slow & controlled, lift your top leg to (at least) 45 degrees. Then lower it back to starting position. It is a continuous motion. 30-45 seconds x 3-4 sets. #123fitness - @laramirasol- #webstagram

I use 15-20lbs dumb bells.
Squats - Works out your thighs & butt. Bosu ball helps strengthen your core. Feet shoulder width apart, slowly bend your knees while keeping your back straight. I usually use a 25lbs weight & put it behind my head because it helps keep my back straight. Do 15-20 reps x 3-4 sets.
Internal & External Oblique Rotation - Targets your core, mainly your internal/external obliques. Start in a plank position (Hands on the ground with shins on the SB). Keep your right leg on SB. With your left leg, flex your knee & slowly rotate inwards making your left knee point to the right. Then reverse your movement to extend your left leg at starting position & elevate it at the end. Start with 3 sets of 5 (each leg) & build up your muscle endurance. Make sure you do these slow & contro...
