TODAY SHOW: Tone your abs for summer with this 30-day core routine

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!

It is important to do core exercises during your workouts because not only does it tone your stomach, but it also is beneficial for stabilization and support. The core muscles are located in the center of your body, so working on the core muscles is essential for good posture and also building up more strength. This 30-day core exercise routine will help you tone and strengthen your body for the summer!

The workout routine is a good balance between resting and working out your core muscles. I offer core basic exercises such as the pelvic tilt, bridge, planks, etc. I also recommend killer core exercises such as plank ups, side planks, and squats in this 30-day routine. These exercises are very effective in helping build up your core muscles in the center of your body!

Especially in the spring and summer months, many people are spending more time in their beautiful gardens growing delicious fruits and vegetables and even different plants and flowers! Gardening is beneficial for your health because it is seen as a workout, working out different parts of the body, for a couple of minutes to even hours at a time.

There are many ways you can incorporate workouts into your gardening sessions. Before you start gardening and after you finish, you can do some simple stretches. You could also incorporate some cardio by sweeping or raking at a faster pace. Yoga in the garden is another great way to get a workout in your garden!

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!

If you are looking for a move to add to your core workout, try out the ab exercise called the bicycle crunch! Although the bicycle crunch is extremely popular in many workout routines, many people do it incorrectly and it may hurt your back and hips if done incorrectly. Bicycle crunches are very beneficial for the body, when done correctly, and it can help you slim your waist and tone your core muscles.

I point out the common mistakes people make when doing these bicycle crunches. I also offer how to do a modified bicycle crunch to help prepare you to perform a correct bicycle crunch. If you need more practice before doing the bicycle crunches, I also recommended four exercises that will help you do it correctly!

Eat This, Not That: Ways Eating Protein Can Help You Lose Weight, Say Dietitians

New article for Eat This, Not That featuring 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!

Staying active and maintaining a consistent workout routine is especially important during one’s weight loss journey, but being aware of what you eat is also an important part of weight loss! Many people try to balance their carbs, protein and fats, but many are also having a lot more carbs and fats compared to protein. Having a balanced amount of protein in your diet is extremely important and really can make the difference during your weight loss journey!

Having protein is important because the calories in protein are more effectively burned in comparison to calories in other foods. Protein can also make you feel fuller for a longer period of time. There are also many great benefits of adding a balanced amount of protein to your diet!

Resistance bands have become popular due to how convenient and affordable they are, but do you know about resistance band pants? Resistance band pants are essentially pants that have resistance bands built into them! Many resistance band pants are not only stylish, but comfortable as well.  

There are many versions of resistance band pants, varying in different resistance levels. The one I tried was the Agogie resistance band pants! Having them on was a great experience because I could feel the resistance when I was working out, taking my daily walk and even doing chores inside my house! I also offer more of my personal feedback on resistance band pants and who I would recommend these to.

TODAY SHOW: If regular crunches hurt your neck, try reverse crunches instead

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 many people incorporate the regular crunch into their daily workout, very few know about the reverse crunch. If you are worried about the risks of performing a standard crunch incorrectly, or are looking for something new to add to your workout routine, you should definitely try the reverse crunch!

Reverse crunches are beneficial because they help strengthen your core muscles and prevent you from straining your lower neck and back, which may happen when doing a regular crunch incorrectly. Practice makes perfect, so I offer many tips and tricks to do a reverse crunch correctly. I also offer a modified reverse crunch before jumping right into the reverse crunch, and exercises that will help you perform the reverse crunch better.

Due to the pandemic, many people have been getting more addicted and developing bad habits when it comes to their use of technology. Including me! Instead of putting away my phone, I tried to change the way I used it to create better, more positive, and healthier habits. 

To name a few, some of the positive changes I made in my routine is to set time limits and start a daily morning yoga practice using yoga and meditation apps. Setting a time limit and using the screen time feature will allow you to become more aware of your daily phone usage and set specific goals for yourself to limit your technology usage.

TODAY SHOW: Want to tone your waist? Add this move to your workout routine

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!

Many people perform the standard plank in their daily workout routines, but very few incorporate the side plank. The side plank can be beneficial because it not only works your core muscles, but also helps tone your waist and increase your strength. If this is something you want to work on, make sure to give this move a try and add it to your daily workout routine!

Side planks are also beneficial because it helps improve muscle endurance in the lower back. It takes time to work the core and build up your oblique strength to do side planks. I offer a modified side plank before jumping right into the side plank, and exercises that will help you perform the side plank better.
