If you are looking for a great way to get your heart rate up then high knees are a great place to start. This body weight cardio move is often used as a warmup to other activities, engaging the core and strengthening the leg muscles. 

 

But before you jump into this move keep in mind a few tips. The move looks simple but requires a lot of attention to detail to be performed correctly. Your posture, foot placement and arm movement are all involved in the success of this exercise!

Today Show: Tone Your Core With These One-Dumbbell Ab Exercises

You don’t need any fancy equipment to build core strength. In fact, bodyweight exercises alone are enough to strengthen your core and tone your midsection. But if you’re looking to add a bit of a challenge to your routine grab a dumbbell! 

 

A great one to try is the dumbbell burpee. Burpees require a lot of energy and engage your full body, and in this variation it activates your core even more. For the dumbbell burpee, start in a standing position and hold the dumbbell in your right hand, letting it hang by your side. Perform a squat, and as you return to standing, press the dumbbell up over your head into an overhead press. Then, bend the knees and place your hands on the ground (your left hand will be on the ground, your right hand will hold on to the dumbbell which will rest on the ground) and hop or step your feet back to plank. Then step or jump your feet towards your hands, slide the weight to the left and pick it up with your left hand, and return to standing. Repeat on the left side. Repeat this 5 times on each side.

CNN: Weight Loss Coach Shares Other Benefits to Exercise

New article for CNN featuring weight loss coach Stephanie Mansour! If you’re looking for a weight loss program that works, you’ve come to the right place.

At some point in your life you have probably heard that moving your body is good for you. But have you really known why? In fact not experiencing enough physical activity can increase your risk of developing certain diseases up to 8%. 

To combat a physical slump, it is best to incorporate movement throughout your day. I suggest setting an alarm on your phone to remind you to stretch; starting with three times a day and working your way up to every hour of the day. You can even get creative with your movement times like while waiting for water to boil or brushing your teeth, add in 10 squats!

TODAY SHOW: What You Didn’t know About Doing A Downward Facing Dog

New article for Today Show by weight loss coach Stephanie Mansour! If you’re looking for a weight loss program that works, you’ve come to the right place. Stephanie is a personal weight loss coach for women and offers some top rated weight loss programs for women! In addition to some of the best online weight loss programs, Stephanie is also a wellness coach, offering tips and tricks on how to improve both physically and mentally!

Although downward dog is a yoga exercise, it has become a popular move used to warm up the body and stretch the back in all types of workout routines.  Like many other yoga poses, downward dog is a great move to drop into when you need to relax. It’s a great way to release the tension that builds up after a long day spent staring at a screen or sitting at a desk. While this move is a great one to incorporate into your routine, performing it without mastering the proper form comes with some risk.

One common mistake to this pose is if you feel like the space between your feet and your hands is too narrow, shift your feet back further. Another thing to try is instead of tucking in your butt, bend your knees just a little so that you can tilt your hips forward.

With virtual classes and at-home work, it’s no wonder why many people are experiencing more pain in the neck and back than usual. Sitting in a chair all day, your back slouched and neck bent, is just not good for you. Period.

Keeping your body moving doesn’t have to take your whole day, doing these simple exercises will help to relieve tension and keep you feeling loose. One simple exercise to start with is arm circles. These help address shoulder stiffness and will get your blood flowing after sitting down for a while. This move is also a great way to engage your back. With this circular movement, you’re stretching your back as well as your shoulders while simultaneously getting in a quick arm workout.
