Still working on losing the weight over here.
I'm at the point where I'm down to my last ten pounds, but if it happens it happens.
Especially because those last ten are ALWAYS the hardest.
That brings us to my quickie interview with David Kirsh.
He is the one that celebs like Heidi Klum turn to when they need to look their best.
Need I say more?
The personal trainer extraordinaire, allowed me the honor to pick his brain for some fitness tips.
And pick I did.
Definitely something to peruse being that swimsuit season is pretty much here.
1. Sometimes, no matter how much we workout, we can never seem to get rid of that "mommy pooch". Do you have any tips to get our stomachs looking more toned?
Be sure to focus on your belly feeling the burn. You’ll know when you’ve got it right – you’ll feel your muscles engage. Try moves you can find the David Kirsch Arms & Abs Book, such as Planks, Lying Obliques and Double Crunches. Nutritionally, you want to be sure you are eating quality calories, with things like good carbs (lentils, beans, quinoa, brown rice, etc), vegetables and good meats (meat, chicken, fish). You also want to avoid the ABCs of nutrition – no alcohol, bread, starchy carbs & coffee, dairy, extra sweets and fruits & most fasts.
2. As mommies, we're always on the move...so much so that we might forget to eat breakfast in the morning. What's a quick and easy breakfast for a mommy on the go?
Try the David Kirsch KIRSCHBAR – the new protein bar is the perfect on-the-go meal replacement bar. It is 100% natural, gluten-free, has 20 grams of the highest quality protein and 6 grams of fiber. It is also low in fat, cholesterol, sodium and sugar.
3. While we'd love to head to the gym and put in an hour (or hour plus) workout, it isn't always possible. Can you give us some exercises that can target the whole body in 30 minutes.
I created 30 minute bootcamps for just this reason. The David Kirsch 7-Day Prescription DVD is a set of seven different DVDs that packs an hour’s worth of exercise into an intensive 30-minute session to target pesky trouble spots. If you don’t have 30 minutes all at one time, try doing some of the David Kirsch 10 minute Express workouts®, three times throughout the course of the day. Another great tip – workout with your kids; children love to jump, skip and race so think jump squats, sumo lunges, jumping jacks and walking lunges. The Ultimate New York Diet book as other exercise suggestions that you can do with your kids at any age.
