BODY IMAGE: HOW ARE YOU BETTER THAN THEM?
Are you tired of being a washed up fat hag? Your frustration of being out of shape with having a low hanging belly and less than perfect "glutes", while social media hosts a plethora of fantasy girls could push you to suicide. Well, that's because you probably aren't doing your V-Ups properly.
V-Ups, also known as the Jackknife, originates in Russia, a leader in transversus abdominis exercises, and rated # 9 in SELF magazines "20 Core Exercises Top Trainers Swear By". The V-Up is both an upper-and lower-abdominal exercise. It will take some practice to learn how to balance on your butt so that you can perform this move well; however, once you have mastered the movement, it will quickly become a favorite.
"Those who do V-Ups with a tendency to not keep their movements smooth and controlled, demonstrate chronic neck issues and lower-back pain. Keeping your arms and legs straight on even ground strengthens their upper and lower abdominals," fitness enthusiasts observed.
"Those that tend to naturally gain weight in their lower body and remain slim upper body is due to genetics", says top personal trainers. "That body type is a mesomorph so they're also able to gain muscle mass quickly. Once you understand your body type and create a core exercise plan that works for you, achieving results are no longer impossible."
She loved pushing her body to the limits feeling strong and alive! It has been almost two years since she woke up in Rome, married the love of her life, worked in the studio on her first single Everything You Got and started her Power Booty fitness program focusing on the lower body and core. Today staying in shape during her pregnancy, and teaching her Power Booty class while pregnant has motivated the Power Booty Tour, a gym based program with more than fifty participants. Whether you are planning on getting pregnant or not, the Power Booty program will push you in ways you never thought it could.
At the time she suffered from depression. At one-hundred and seventy eight pounds, she felt she was not looking her best nor feeling her best. The next morning her friend called her and said,
"let's get this workout in!" What he didn’t tell her was, it was going to be the craziest workout of her life and pushed her to her limits. She put one-hundred percent effort into that forty five minute workout and didn’t quit! She started to focus on her health and fell in love with fitness and dug herself out of that dark place. In essence exercise saved her along with friendship. And she was grateful for someone that pushed her to be the best version of herself.
She loved the gym on an average day, but when her life became messy, the gym became her safe haven. It was the only place she could be around people without the expectations of communicating or interacting with them. It gave her this small piece of control. It gave her consistency. When she could not process what was going on around her, the only thing that stopped her from thinking, and usually overthinking was moving. She did not keep time of how long she exercised, and did not even count her repetitions. In fact, she did not establish any goals. She did not care about results. She did not weighed herself. She was doing whatever she can to prioritize joy in her life. Exercise was her joy, so she thought she would share it.
