Model Fit – Weekend Workout

This video is an old one from Into the Gloss, but one I keep coming back to.  A great weekend workout video, not too intense and just under 20 minutes.

I just wish my dalmatian puppy would be that calm!

  1. I think she must’ve given the Dalmatian a sedative before making this video. 😛

    I like the leg and butt work in the video. Those are the best exercises (the floor work she did) for sculpting the bottom, at least according to what Mike has read (the reason I do them).
    I like yoga best for most of the other muscle work, but I’ve started on the “Body is the Barbell” circuit training with the family about three nights per week and that has replaced the yoga.
    Now I can do pullups like I could back when I was in my early 20s.
    🙂

  2. Yes! The workout I usually do does about 30 minutes of that rear and leg kind of work. Soooo painful, but it REALLY works – so awesome you know this Liz, I don’t many women who do!

    Wow to the pull-ups.

  3. Thanks for posting! It kind of reminds me of yoga, how she’s trying to stretch and strengthen and elongate, so that you’re toning your muscles. It seems like a good way to fill in the gaps that are going to be missed by cardio and weights.

  4. What kind of dance did you do Wordsof gold? I miss dance, and yes, mat workouts definitely give me a taste of it again.

    Side note: There are dance workouts you can do to get a little of that dance fix if you miss it like I do. I do Tracy Anderson Metamorphosis whenever I’m getting out of shape, it is extremely hard, but very worth it if a woman is serious about losing the baby weight. It takes a very motivated, determined woman to do all of her workouts, I haven’t even been able to make it to the end cd’s and I get and go very far and (when I am in shape) am able to wear a bikini somewhat confidently in public.

    You should try her workouts, but beware, they are incredibly painful because they actually work to cinch everything in, and give you a near perfect bod… no matter your body type, everything gets firmed, cinched in, and toned up in a “dancer” type way.

  5. I was trained in ballet, tap, jazz, theatrical and lyrical. Dance and theatre was my life growing up.
    Since having kids I’ve stayed busy doing choreography and teaching ballet from time to time. That’s helped me stay in shape. But we’ve recently moved to a new town and I need to find a way to stay fit and tone up a bit. I’ll check out those recommendations, thanks!

  6. That’s amazing that you teach it! Especially the new moms – baby-wearing class, wow 😀

    Yes what I like about the Tracy Anderson workouts is that they can be done at home, on your schedule… no need to travel to a gym. But wow, do I miss going to the gym with my husband, we used to go everyday in the beginning of our marriage, and it was so much fun flirting with him there, playing basketball and him teaching me… I really miss it.

  7. Sorry for the double comment! The first one didn’t show up when I wrote it. I’m not crazy, I promise. 😉

  8. No you’re not crazy, I turned moderation on for all comments a week or so ago now I think. So comments won’t show until and unless I approve them.

    We worked out together early in our marriage, too, and that went by the wayside after the kiddos.
    I can really empathize, wow did I miss that (I also missed being able to lay out in leisure by the pool and not have to actually swim with the kids and entertain them, or worry about them drowning, and all that). This too shall pass! Now our entire family works out together. It’s SO much fun…seriously, the boys ridicule each other (an they’re super clever and funny of course, because Dad is clever and funny) and sometimes fight and it’s chaotic, but unbelieveably fun.
    I never saw this coming, back in the day I only wanted a little space and a little free time back, but it is so much fun now. Starts about when the oldest is old enough to watch the youngest.
    🙂

  10. That’s so wonderful that it gets better – I know you do yoga and mat workouts, Liz, but how do ya’ll workout together, like what kind of workouts do each of you do?

    It sounds so cute how the boys act with each other! Awww I can’t wait for that phase! Your boys sound so cute. ❤ ❤ ❤

  11. “but how do ya’ll workout together, like what kind of workouts do each of you do?”

    We do something called the “Body is the Barbell” workout. There are eight different exercises and we go around a circuit (pushups, reverse dips, pullups and so forth). It works out pretty much everything except the stomach. It’s not the kind of thing I would take up doing on my own but it’s fun as a family. 🙂
