I think every Fitness Friday is going to include a nutrition article, since nutrition is just about everything when it comes to changing body composition. You can't out train a bad diet.
The best ab exercises? Think Big Lifts- Bracing with your core on big lifts like squats and deadlifts do more for your core muscles than a million crunches. Core was meant to stabilize and thats exactly what it'll do during your big lifts.
Eat Smart, Get your Vitamins- Make sure you are getting all your vitamins and minerals. Any deficiency in any of them could hinder muscle gains or fat loss.
120 tips on strength training for women- Some stereotypes, some of it is funny, some of it is very true.
Compare any food- Use this handy website to compare any two foods for nutritional content. I had fun comparing all sorts of things. Take a look whenever you are deciding on food choices.
Weekend Workout (make sure you rock a dynamic warmup before any workout)
Hindu Pushup. If you can't do this, perform a regular pushup
Squat Thrust- Old school gym class squat thrusts
The goal of this circuit is to do 5-10 reps of each exercise and do 5 total sets in as little time as possible. Good Luck!!
Feel free to post times and reps for this challenge.
