I’ve found my new favorite fitness magazine. Finally a mag that takes a more gritty and realistic approach to women’s fitness and representation in the fitness industry. I will definitely be subscribing once I figure out all of my address stuff with school. So pumped! Everyone go grab an issue!!!

I want to read it now!!

If you can’t afford an issue or there aren’t any available in your area, check out their website!

In case you haven’t heard — and at this point in the media blitz, it’s hard to imagine you haven’t — Chris Pratt lost quite a bit of weight to play the chiseled-abbed superhero Star-Lord in “Guardians Of The Galaxy.”

See the full hilarious interview that details Pratt’s strict weight regimen here.

Cauliflower Rice: “When you bring this ‘rice’ to the table people often have no idea that it’s cauliflower. Serve this in place of normal rice, mashed potatoes or pasta. 100g of cauliflower rice is only 24 calories, compared to 100g of rice at 355 calories!”

Gotta go produce shopping later. Adding cauliflower crowns to the list!

Keep meaning to try this. I’ve heard great things about it.

“I like clothes now. I have more energy. I sleep better. My sex drive is up. Blood’s flowing. I’m less susceptible to impulse. I’m in a different mode. When I was way out of shape, the idea of using whitening strips on my teeth seemed terrible. I have to do that every day? I’ll never do it. What you want is instant results when you’re out of shape. You want your teeth whitened in 45 minutes with the use of lasers. But when you’re in shape, you know it’s the result of doing a little bit every day. Moments aren’t just moments. A moment might be a week or a month. So instead of Boy, I’d love to eat this hamburger right now, I’m considering a little further into the future. I’m thinking, I eat that hamburger and that’s 1,200 calories, and I’m gonna work out tomorrow and lose 800 calories. I may as well eat a salad here, still do that workout, and then I’m actually making progress.” — Chris Pratt

This just motivated the fuck out of me.

Squats! Everybody loves squats. Squats are honestly amazing for your legs and booty. They even help strengthen your back too! They’re just all round awesome and great for shaping your body.

P.s sorry for my awkward face hahaha but I do love the way my arms are looking!

TECHNIQUE

  • Begin in standing position with feet at hip width or slightly wider apart with toes pointing forward.

  • Flex at your hips and knees to lower your seat to knee height, with your knees positioned over your feet and not extending past your toes

  • Push through your heels and engage your glutes to return to the starting position

  • Keep chest up, shoulders back and core engaged throughout the movement

ERRORS TO WATCH FOR

  • Incomplete range of motion

  • Weight forward into the ball of foot rather tan sitting back into heels

  • Knees tracking in front of the toes or buckling inward

MODIFICATION

  • Modify the range of motion in the descent or hip/knee flexion

Single-Leg Glute Bridge

When bridging up, make sure to drive through your heels to avoid arching your lumbar spine. When done correctly, this exercise can activate more gluteal muscle than a 1RM max squat, so high reps aren’t a must. This is a great warm-up movement to gear your heavy squats, deadlifts, or the other weight-bearing glute exercises listed here.

Coffee and water rule: Every time you drink a sweet coffee drink (or soda or anything naughty) drink a whole cup of water first!
Water tip: to make your water less boring, add a few orange slices! I drink quite a bit of water every day, so my Starbucks helps me keep things interesting in my cup :)
Stay hydrated this beautiful summer everyone!!
