Extreme Core Workout

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Titin Tech. 

Steve recently showed you how to use Titin weighted compression shirts to add resistance to plyos and calisthenics in my last post, but what about static holds like plank or yoga poses?

Today’s workout is an example of how versatile the Titin compression shirt really is. Since your resistance is like a second skin, you can comfortably add it to just about any exercise you do – like this challenging core workout routine. Even if you don’t have Titin gear yet, give this workout a try and imagine what it would feel like weighted down!

Complete 3 Rounds on Each Side:
10 Diagonal Knee
10 Side Elbow Plank with Single Side Kick
10 Elbow Plank Single Donkey Kick
10 T-Plank Row Combo
Repeat on the other leg

Improve strength, power and endurance with Titin! Learn More about Titan weighted compression gear & join the Titin Team at http://bit.ly/fftitin.

 Boost Your Workout AND Results

Titin Tech Shirt► Higher Lactate Threshold
► Increased Vertical Leap
► Increase in Endurance
► Increase in Caloric Burn
► Increase in Running Speed

Steve and I recently discovered a killer fitness tool to boost performance and calorie burn that will bring any workout to a whole new level. It’s the world’s ONLY weighted compression shirt called Titin. No bulky vests or attachments. You don’t have to hold onto anything or clip into anything – your hands are completely free and you are totally comfortable to do whatever you want to to in or out of the gym!

Versatile • Comfortable • Effective

TITIN shirtTitin compression clothing is simply a heavier version of a second skin – especially awesome for athletes and fitness enthusiasts (HUGE with CrossFitters & athletes) who want to boost performance. The Titin shirt distributes weight evenly all over the body. Since the weight is in your shirt, you can increase the intensity of exercises you normally can’t change like burpees, mountain climbers, plyos, sprinting and jumping.

Not only can Titin clothing boost your workouts, the pliable weighted gel inserts can be heated or frozen to stay hot or cold for 35-45 minutes.

GYM BAG: Prissy, Practical & Pretty

Fivesse gym bag

I use my gym bag more than I do my purse! A matter of fact, I don’t even CARRY a purse during the week! A rely on my gym bag to carry all my belongings around. That is also why I don’t want to lug an ugly bulky manly bag from home to work to the gym or whereever!

So when I recently discovered Fivesse Home-Gym-Work Bag, I instantly fell in love! Maybe it was the soft pink accents. Maybe it was the cute tabs on all the pockets to help you organize your things. It could have been the pretty color combinations and patterns. When I try to pinpoint it, I simply can’t! I think it’s D: All of the above!

I got my bag with a matching garment bag for those times I need to have a nice change of clothes on a hanger instead of all bunched up in a gym bag. This was a super nice addition and perfect for any career woman or traveler. This bag would also be a fantastic carryon for those quick trips.

Here are some of the things I loved most about my bag:

Separate laundry pouch for wet clothes!

Best Armband for the iPhone 5

PureMove Armband

The PureMove Armband is the best armband I’ve found made for the iPhone 5S/5. I got the opportunity to try it out this weekend on our group run with some of our bikini boot campers and members. Here’s why I was so excited about this armband!

One of my pet peeves is not being able to access my phone easily while running or working out at the gym. First, you have that stupid thick plastic barrier that not only holds your phone but it makes it extremely difficult to actually use the phone. Second, if you want to get the phone out of the case, it’s a challenge to get it out – especially if you are in a hurry. Lastly, once you get it OUT of the case, it’s a total pain to put it back IN the case without taking the whole armband off your arm.

With the PureMove Armband, I can easily navigate the touch screen – SOOO NICE! I was able to easily start and pause my RunKeeper app when I needed too (which was always a hassle). Not only was I able to navigate the touch screen better without the plastic barrier, but I didn’t have that annoying glare the additional plastic layer always gave my phone. The same tasks that took a minute or two to complete, now took me only 5-10 seconds. Less time struggling means more time sweating!!

vero beachSince I’m a picture-taking fool, I also enjoyed the ease of popping my phone right out of the case to take a quick snap shot of fun things along the way. Whether I want to take a pic of the sunset, scenery, funny sites or a pictures of gym members and friends, I don’t want anything to slow down my run. The PureMove Armband allowed me that freedom.

Have you seen Yes Man? That is SO me! hahaha 🙂 I never go anywhere without a camera – and of course the iPhone is my camera when I’m on runs and I just love knowing I can capture the moment, even on my run!

Here are some of the photos I’ve taken on some of my runs. Burning calories is great, but making memories makes it even better! And now it’s even easier to do with the PureMove Armband.

 

5 Ways Music Can Motivate You More

This blog is sponsored by FitFluential LLC. My opinions are my own.

A professor specializing in music and exercise once said, “Music is like a legal drug for athletes”. 

headphonesEveryone at our gym (Max Fitness Club) knows I take our music very seriously. I tease, calling myself “DJ Magic Bonnie” on a mission to pump up the tunes – and everyone’s heart rate. Although everyone has different musical tastes, there is a scientific reason behind the music we play in our gym.

Studies upon studies have proven that certain types of music gives gym goers an advantage. The sound level, the beat, the style – it all can make or break your workout.

If you want to PUMP up your workouts, then I suggest you PUMP up the tunes! Here are 5 tips to use music to give you a boost in the gym.

Music Motivational Tips (and my Top 5 Favorite Musical Movie Scenes)

1. Turn the music on. Turn your music on before you even put your tennis shoes on. If you are sluggish, see how you feel as soon as you turn on some good tunes while getting ready. Watch your mood change. If you can change your mood, you can change your mind. Follow DJ Special Ed on Facebook to stream or download his custom club mixes.

Best Home Stereo Scene:

2. Crank up the drive. Crank up high-energy music while you are driving to the gym. By the time you get there, you will be so energized, nothing will stop you from having a great workout! Works every time!

Best Car Stereo Scene:

3. Buy good headphones. If you don’t like the music your gym plays, or you like to run outside, buying a good pair of headphones (like Koss FitClips) is as important as buying a good pair of shoes. Not only will you have great workouts, but headphones say “I’m serious and don’t want to be interrupted”, which will increase your overall intensity.

Best Headphone Scene:

4. Search for fitness music that shows beats per minute. To give you an idea of pace, ACE (American Counsel on Exercise) suggests the following beats per minute based on sport: Walking: 137–139 bpm, Running: approx. 147–169 bpm and Cycling: approx. 135–170 bpm. The higher the beats per minute, the higher intensity – even when weight training.

Best Club Music Dance Scene:

5. Save your tunes for the gym. If you play your workout music outside of exercise, you may lose a little magic. By saving your music for your workouts, the music will stay fresh and exciting – just like your workouts should be. Here is The Sneaker Reports Top 20 Fitness Tracks.

REVIEW: Koss FitClips for Women

koss headphonesI have REALLY small ears. I know, it’s probably a surprise because nothing else on me is small. For a girl who wears a size 9 shoe and is 5’9″ tall, I NEVER can find headphones to fit me. So, when I got the change to give Koss FitClips a try, I have to admit I wasn’t really hopeful. I knew there was a possibility my stupid ears would reject them. BUT, low and behold, they locked right into my ears and did not budge for my entire workout. I didn’t adjust them once – which is UNHEARD of for me!! These bad boys are made for women, and literally fit my ears like a GLOVE.

Koss’ female designers teamed-up with Gold Medalist Dara Torres to create the world’s first headphones designed specifically for women, by women.

Best One-of-a-Kind Christmas Gift for Fitness

FitFluential LLC compensated me for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

ReeboksI love fashion. I may not always be the most “fashionable”, but I love to “play” with style. Since there are not a lot of accessories you can wear while working out, (I mean, it’s not like you can wear bangle bracelets, chunky necklaces and chandelier earrings), you’re somewhat limited to the actual clothes you have to wear to get your sweat on.

For instance, I have to wear socks, so they might as well be fun! I have to wear tennis shoes, so they might as well be colorful. I often have to put my hair up in a ponytail, so why not wear pigtails with matching rubber bands? Why not, right?

FUN SOCKS

I wear workout clothes for a living. After years of wearing black and grey, I was super excited about all the pretty color that entered into the fitness world. Then I discovered cute tennis shoes that didn’t look like bulky tennis shoes. Slowly, but surely, I started wearing more tennis shoes with everyday clothing – because shoes were so much cuter than ever before. Since I have so many flashy colored Reeboks, I was ready to get a more neutral pair for every day use – in or out of the gym. I have have very little that matches grey, and NOTHING that matches blue, so I thought I’d try designing my next pair of shoes!  Here are some of my custom Nano 2.0s (my favorite in and out of the gym tenny!). Now I’m just trying to figure out which one to buy – OR should I try a new color combo?

Which one do you like best?

BEST FIT GEAR: Bonnie’s Top 5 New Reebok Releases

Reebok LiveWithFireAs most of you know, I have the privilege of trying some of the newest trends from Reebok. One thing you might not know is I’m not required to tell you how much I love their products, even if I don’t. I just have to test them out, be honest and share what I like. The problem is, I love almost everything they send me! Seriously! So, with that said, I thought I’d share my top picks for the first quarter.

The following products are not just products I’ve received, but new products I admire and plan to get – AND my Product of the Year (so far!).

Bonnie’s Top 5 Reebok Picks

1. PWR Legging – If you don’t want to talk to anyone at the gym, then you may not want to buy these leggings. I got so many compliments on these workout pants the first day I wore them! Everyone was asking me where I got them. Between the cool print and the single black-cuff bottom, this pair of leggings is a statement for sure – and it says COOL!

PWR Reebok Legging

2. Reebok CrossFit Spotted Sock: Stripes are overrated, right?! But, something you DON’T see a lot of is SPOTS! They have spotted socks in red & white and green & purple. They also have different patterns and styles including compression socks and just high socks. They even have them in solid HOT PINK for pink-lovers like ME! Men, if you want something a little less (well, girlie), check these red, yellow and black bad boys out: Reebok CrossFit Front Stripe Sock

Reebok CrossFit Spotted Sock Reebok Compression Socks

3. ZigCarbon Running Shoe. Ok, I have not tried these yet, but Steve got his last week and LOVES them – and they are on my wish list for sure!! The  Zigcarbon is super light (under 7.5 ounces) and has a full-length unique military grade carbon fiber plate for structured support in the midfoot, and forefoot and heel foam pods for excellent cushioning and shock absorption. Although Steve loved the regular zigs, he felt he needed a little more support – and he said this shoe did the trick for sure. This shoe is designed to take a beating with more durability and support.

Zig Carbons

4. Strength is Beautiful Tank. This statement alone is awesome – but then the top has a cool cut too. I love the color, the cut, and the message! But, this tank is not just cool, it’s practical. The idea behind their CrossFit line is not to just offer CrossFitters cool clothes. It was to learn from some of the toughest athletes who really put their body to the test, and create what they needed in workout gear. As a result, they learned tops need to be more fitted and longer so they don’t rise up while doing handstand push-ups or burpees. They realized they needed to develop pants that you can squat, jump and run in that won’t slide down your bottom exposing your butt crack or busting a seam. They use technology that fitness enthusiasts appreciate. This is not your ordinary generic workout clothes to walk in, this line is designed to work for you, not against you. So, all in all, you don’t have to be a CrossFitter to appreciate this gear – you’ll love it no matter how you train.

Strength is Beautiful Tank

5. Strength Track Jacket – So far, this is my favorite jacket I’ve gotten from Reebok. Partly because I love the single-sided inspirational ghost pattern, but mostly because it just looks SO sharp on! It comes in black, white & coral (I have it in white). As a fitness professional, I’m always looking for sharp fitness apparel that I can wear and still look professional. I literally can finish a workout, slide this bad boy on and I feel dressed for success in seconds. Love it!

White Reebok Strength Jacket

My Product of the Year (so far) is…

(drum roll please…..)

The Reebok DMX Sky. DMX Sky outsole contains three independent moving channels that transfer cushioned air where you need it, when you need it – and a Carbon rubber outsole for traction, grip and durability.

Reebok DMX Sky

First, I must tell you how I tried these puppies out. I actually switched shoes with my mom (pictured above on the right) and wore one of her new Reebok shoes AND I wore one of the DMX Sky shoes on part of my run to see if I could feel a difference. The answer was a big fat YES, BIG difference! Definitely LOADS of cushion for all you cushion lovers (which I need since I hurt my ankle). I could tell you how they work, but I think Reebok experts explain it the best. Check it out!
