PULL UP / PUSH UP PR: go for a personal record today! How many pull ups or push ups can you do? You’re stronger than you think! Always remember… it’s a you versus you competition and all about progress in your own journey!

#LGAccountability #LGTeamKini

Tip of the Day: Increase the weight beyond what your mind tells you. I’m never one to suggest heavy weights without reason. I think proper form is the most important element of weight training we can focus on. Still, it’s funny how our mind tends to trick us into getting comfortable with what’s familiar. If you’ve been curling those 10lb dumbbells for a year now, you’re probably pretty comfortable with that weight. Yet, our minds tell us… go for those 10 pounders each time we complete a bicep curl. Stretch yourself every once and awhile. Pick up that set of 15’s and curl them! When you complete the movement with proper form for suggested rep range, you may be surprised, but I’m certainly not! I know you’re so much stronger than you think! I still struggle with this. Just the other day, I realized I was dumbbell bench pressing the same weight for over a year; I increased it and completed it with ease. It’s almost like we forget to push ourselves outside of our comfort zones. Our minds like to keep us safe, but stepping beyond our limits is where amazing things happen! Now that’s a lesson I need to learn to better apply to my life outside the gym!

MUSIC:  what tunes are you currently getting your fitness on to?! Upload and share your current gym jam!

#LGAccountability #LGTeamKini

Tip of the Day: The power of a playlist…. boy does it make a difference during a workout. Music can truly make a workout and today’s tip is one that I’ve recently discovered and really think would help my fellow LG Sisters! Create playlists based on your mood. Obviously, we all go to the gym to crush a workout; our moods, however ((lol such a woman thing)) may vary day to day. Some days, I race into the gym ready to take on the world and other days, I’m dragging my feet, holding onto the hope that my workout will lift my spirits and boost my energy. Create a few playlists with different vibes. For instance, I have a playlist that I call “flow” and it’s filled with Coldplay and The Goo Goo Dolls ((have any other Goo Goo Dolls fans pre-ordered the new album?! 3 new songs out already!)) – when I’m on that playlist I’m just in the flow, not really focused on music but just in a good state. I have another playlist titled “pump up” and it contains mostly EDM and fast beat songs. My other go-to playlist titled “bad ass” is filled with rap music. Playlists by mood has been so helpful in allowing the beat to charge me. Also, I too often found myself hitting the next button about 25 times in between sets, which is such a energy sucker. Playlists are the perfect remedy to that! Need a quick burst of gym motivation?? Download a new song or two… it works for me every time!

TEA: upload a photo of your favorite tea… is this an excuse to stop at the coffee shop this morning?! Is sure is 😉

#LGAccountability #LGTeamKini

Tip of the Day: I could write a laundry list of benefits for tea and I’m sure you’ve read them on every health and fitness publication out there, so I’ll share my favorite two benefits that you may enjoy as well. First off, tea (some tea – there are obviously decaf versions) is a great source of natural caffeine. I’m all about a little kick of energy in the morning or before a workout, but in today’s society, I think the caffeine addiction is real and really not healthy! Tea provides just enough to give you a little kick without the excess that can wreck havoc on our adrenal system. Secondly, tea is my go-to for when those craving creep up between meals. I look forward to enjoying different types of tea throughout the day and lately, I’m all about that peppermint tea! And those benefits are worth looking up!! Oh by the way… scroll down a tad… 😉 Enjoy!
