#WORKOUTCOMMAND! Do 2 sets of 12 twisted star ups for rock hard abs! GO!
Here are 12 yoga poses to help open your hips. Heidi Kristoffer recommends that you pick any five of these openers each day, switching them up each time. Hold each pose for about 30 seconds each, take deep breaths, and you will start to feel more open. For more details on each pose check out the original post at Shape.com.

Hey guys! So Lexi (xolexi) had this great idea to start a sort of workout calendar challenge, and she asked me to help. Every month will have a theme and goals for a healthy lifestyle leading up to summer 2013! This month’s theme is exercise, as you can see by the calendar. This is not designed to be easy! It’s designed to push you. If you can’t do everything on day one, keep going! Odds are, you’ll be able to do it all by the end of the cycle, and think of how proud you’ll feel! The goal of the Summertime Shred is not just about weight loss, but also about instilling healthy habits for life. Sounds interesting? Give it a go! You can tag your accomplishments with #summershred2013.
Feel free to reblog and tell your friends! Grab a buddy and get going.

We all have heard about fitness programs like P90X, and Insanity. But the truth is that though they are popular and have lots of commercials. They aren’t really the best and have lots of flaws. Such as the inexplicable stretching break in the insanity videos which causes you to cool down and completely ruins the point of the warm up. But there are a lot of really great programs created by lesser known fitness professionals who are way more qualified to put together a program. So I did some research and put together this list of programs along with a short description and the qualifications of the professionals who created them.
Created by Dr. Kareem F. Samhouri, CSCS, HFS
“Dr. Kareem Samhouri designed this program to stimulate the nervous system first, which makes this very unique. What does that do? Well, I had the same question and started researching it like crazy. By targeting nerve instead of muscle, your body works on multiple muscles at once, and even more importantly, ALL of each muscle instead of small components of them.”
Created by Mike Boyle served as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Boston University for 15 years, also for the past 25 years he been the Strength and Conditioning Coach for Men’s Ice Hockey at Boston University. Mike has recently been named the Boston RED SOX strength and conditioning consultant. In addition to his duties at Boston University and the Red Sox, from 1991-1999 Boyle served as the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League. Michael was also the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the 1998 US Women’s Olympic Ice Hockey Team, Gold Medalists in Nagano, and served as a consultant in the development of the USA Hockey National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
” For three decades Strength Coach Mike Boyle has been at the forefront of the profession, working with a wide range of athletes and clients. From middle school, to the pros, to busy adults who want to be in the best shape of their lives, Mike has delivered results over the years that have made him one of the top presenters at seminars around the world, the author of several published books and DVDs that have shaped the industry, and owner of the Number 1 Gym in America by Men’s Health Magazine”
Created by Adam Steer NCCP-3, NSCA-CPT, CST -HC and Ryan Nurdock CST-HC
“Bodyweight training can be as tough or as gentle as you want it to be. If that’s the case, then why aren’t more people doing it? Probably lack of variation. Conventional bodyweight programs are dull! You can only do so many push-ups, sit-ups and jumping jacks before boredom drives you away. Adam and Ryan understand this. And they hate jumping jacks too. That’s why they filled Bodyweight Exercise Revolution with the most innovative movements you’ve ever imagined.”
Created by Nia Shanks who has a Bachelor’s in Exercise Physiology from the University of Louisville.

“We are going to look into two different “worlds” – the World of Science and the World of Hard Knocks. Combined, they produce the following five strategies:
- Lift Heavy
- Lift Explosively
- Eliminate Weak Links
- Manage Fatigue
- Elevate The Metabolism”
Do each pose for 30 seconds and you will feel great!

PASCHIMOTTANASANA: Sit with your legs extended in front of you, feet flexed. Pull your glutes straight back to expose your entire hamstring. Sit up tall with hands by your hips. Inhale.
