    Field Goal Post

    Bring your elbows up to just below shoulder height with one dumbbell in each hand.

    Open up your arms into a field goal position, stretching them back to activate your shoulder blades.

    From there, drop your forearms down so that they are parallel to the ground before lifting them back up into field goal position and closing them in front of your face.

    Repeat 10 times while keeping your elbows up and your core engaged.

    What to Eat Before and After a Workout

    Before: Whole Wheat Toast with Sliced Banana and Cinnamon

    When it comes to gearing up for workout, carbs are your gym BFF. The key is to have a mixed bag of complex and simple ones so that the release of energy during your workout is slow and steady throughout your routine. Whole-wheat toast with fruit gives you both types of carbs with the bonus of being super easy to digest. Complex carbs will keep your motor humming, while the fruit adds an extra kick of energy. For those training for a race, bananas are perfect in raising potassium levels, which drop when you sweat a lot. For an added bonus, add a dash of cinnamon. The spice has been linked to stabilizing blood sugar and improving brain function.


    After: Veggie Omelet with Avocado

    You already know eggs are a great source of protein and help aid in muscle recovery and growth. Switch it up from the usual scramble and make a veggie-packed omelet. Garnish with a few slices of avocado for fiber and monosaturated fats (the good kind!). Similar to olive oil, avocados can help your body better absorb fat soluble nutrients that your veggies have like vitamins A, D, E and K. These vitamins are stocked with antioxidants, the best boost for your body, inside and out.

    6 Moves for Slimmer Hips and Thighs


    Adding a balance challenge to booty-shaping squats will keep your hips, glutes, and abs firing the entire time.

    How to do it:
    Stand tall with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Keeping your chest lifted and maintaining a neutral spine, lower into a deep squat, reaching both arms to the floor (try to tap the ground if you can).


    As you press up, shift your weight into your right leg as you bend your left knee and grab onto your shin with your left hand [as shown]. Hold for 1 count, release your leg, and return to start.

    That's one rep.

    Do 20 reps total, alternating sides each time.

    This traveling lunge targets your thighs, hips, and glutes, plus the reaching motion adds an extra core challenge.

    How to do it:
    Stand tall with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart, hands clasped behind your head.


    Cross your right leg behind your left and lower into a curtsey lunge, reaching your right hand to the floor [as shown].

    Quickly stand back up and return to start.

    That's one rep.

    Do 20 reps total, alternating sides each time.

    Re: Women fitness ---Tips,Tricks and workouts

    What happens when you combine a sumo squat with a side lunge? You get triple the saddlebag-slimming power!

    How to do it:

    Stand with your feet together, holding dumbbells by your sides. Take a wide step out to your right and lower into a side lunge, reaching dumbbells on either side of right leg [as shown].

    Bend your left knee and shift your weight into both legs, into a wide squat position, reaching the dumbbells to floor in front of you, then extend your right leg and shift your weight to the left, moving into a side lunge with your left leg.


    Push off your left foot to bring your legs together and return to start.

    That’s one rep.

    Do 20 reps total, alternating sides each time.

    Re: Women fitness ---Tips,Tricks and workouts

    Build strength in your hips from the inside out with this super-effective strength move.

    How to do it:

    Loop a resistance band around your ankles and lie on your right side, supporting your upper body with your right hand and forearm. Extend both legs out, feet flexed. Brace your abs in tight and lift your top leg up to hip height, rotating your leg to turn your toes down to the floor, keeping tension on the band.

    Lift your leg slightly higher than hip height, pushing against band, with heel rotated up to the ceiling. Return to hip height.

    Repeat 20 times quickly and then switch sides.
