I posted this workout the other day on Instagram because I was in a hurry and needed a workout that was short and effective and so many people commented saying they tried this workout and it was such a good total body burner so I had to share it on here! Most of the follow along workout videos I share on ABS Fit Life TV are a result of me traveling or being busy and only having my own body weight or a pair of dumbbells to get in a good workout so I hope they are helpful to you as well when you needRead More →

One of the best ways to reduce cellulite, tone and strengthen your legs and butt is to regularly perform strength training workouts with dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells and weighted exercises. I get asked a lot of if lifting heavy weights will make you bulky or too muscular and it always makes me laugh because I perform HEAVY strength training 5-6x a week and it is the way I actually stay lean, fit and slim. I am constantly posting on my Instagram all of my latest Olympic Lifts and workouts and you will always seeing me lifting things close to body weight or heavier and I encourageRead More →

With so many options out there for weight loss and nutrition programs, how do you know whether to go low carb, no carb or eat a healthy amount of “good” carbs? Your body NEEDS carbohydrates  There are various programs of keto where you follow a high protein, high fat and little to no carbs in your diet that can be effective when you go through ketosis in cycles, but is not something that you should be trying to sustain long term (this is especially true if you are an athlete or if you are performing your 3-4 strength training workouts weekly).

What are the best lean protein sources you can eat for your fitness and weight loss goals? Depending on who you ask this answer will vary. I personally always recommend going with the “leanest” and most natural protein sources. Sometimes, these are not the quickest options as sometimes your most natural source of protein that is the leanest is going to be your chicken breast and white fish.

What is the difference between skill work and conditioning training when it comes to your health and fitness goals? One of the main differences is skill training focuses on perfecting or improving a specific exercise such as handstands, double unders, olympic lifts, pull-ups, push-ups, etc. For example, when I am doing my regular lifting workouts combined with some sort of metabolic conditioning, I will typically take 20 minutes before or after the workout to just focus on any area that needs the most improvement or is a “weak” point for me. Currently, I have been putting in a lot of time breaking down the muscleRead More →

Women frequently approach me wanting to know how to lose that last bit of stubborn weight. Most women tend to have a misconception that if you eat less than the recommended 1200 daily calories, you will lose weight. However, you should actually take in more than this recommended amount with the right type of calories and with a regular workout routine, you will build your desired muscle mass. By taking in less calories, people are not realizing they are becoming undernourished. You should not be depriving your body. While you might initially lose weight, this is not the way to reach your desired goal. Your weight lossRead More →
