VIDEO: BAND-A-PALOOZA Workout!!

Hey guys Kori with train like a girl here where I help busy moms lose up to 15 pounds in six weeks without spending hours in the gym, or going on any restrictive fad diets.

So today I'm going to show you what I like to call my Band-a-palooza workout.

It takes about 20 to 30 minutes. So again, it'll be for those days that you have the time in your schedule but what I really love about this workout is that you can do it anywhere meaning if you're going on vacation or if you have to travel a lot for work. Resistance bands are a great thing to take with you. They fit in a backpack I've even put this in my purse. Now I have a bigger purse but a suitcase you could take this anywhere and of course it gets through tsa like that. So no worries.


So today we're gonna be doing six different exercises all with the band. You're going to be doing 10 reps for each exercise and you can go on for 20 to 30 minutes depending on what you have time for. If you have time for less than maybe only do, 15 if you have time for more you can do you know 40-45 minutes.

Again, this is what I love about banned workouts!

Exercise #1 Banded front squats

  • So you're gonna take the band step into it. We're gonna reverse scroll it up and place it on our shoulders so kind of like a backpack. I like to hold a band right at my neck. Biggest reason why you let it go it could you could choke yourself. And like any other squat weight is gonna be on your heels sit back drive those heels to stand up. Nice proud chest the entire time.

Exercise #2 Banded shoulder presses

  • Again, you're going to step into the band. You're going to reverse curl it up abs are tight. We're gonna press up and then come back down, press up and then come back down. Again, making sure you're pressing all the way up and coming all the way down. Don't cheat yourself!

Exercise #3 A Banded suitcase deadlift.

  • So you're gonna take the band place it on the ground step onto both I guess you could say strands of the band so that you make actual like little handles. Slight bend in your knees, abs are tight. We're gonna stand up, proud chest, your shoulders are back and then come back down again, slight bend in your knees. Make sure you don't round that back, but fold at your hips.

Exercise #4 Banded bent over rows

  • Again, you're gonna place the band onto the floor step on both sides. Again, you're gonna have the handles. You're gonna fold at your hips, abs are tight, neutral spine Elbows are gonna be nice and tight to your body. Elbows up towards the ceiling back down again squeezing your shoulder blades as you pull up. Make sure not to round your back or arch it. Neutral spine.

Exercise #5 Banded hammer curls

  • Place one strand of the band on the floor. Gonna stand up palms are actually going to be facing each other so if you'd open up your palms, they'd be facing each other you're grabbing onto the band and all you do is curl up and then back down. Making sure you're getting all the way down and all the way up.

Exercise #6 Banded tricep extensions

  • Place the band in put one foot on the band step through with the other foot. We're gonna bring the band up into it press both hands are gonna be close together. Elbows nice and tight to your head. Don't let it flare out elbows nice and tight to your head we come back and then press up. Again, keeping that though your abs tight, but is tight working those triceps.

Alright guys, so again, that was my Band-a-Palooza workout. Again, you just need one resistance band, ten reps of each and you're just gonna go through it as many times as you can in twenty to thirty minutes or whatever you have time allotted for.

Take breaks when needed don't try to wear yourself out.

My Journey: A quick update!

I’ve been MIA with my updates, and I apologize for that.

I did fall off the wagon a bit with my food, but my training has been on par.

This past Monday I decided I needed to nip my nutrition in the bud and joined 20 other clients in my Train Like A Girl 6 week Clean & Lean Reboot.

For 6 weeks the goal is to not only train consistently but eat ONLY real food. That means nothing processed and nothing that comes from a box and/or bag.

And in just 4 days, Monday morning to this morning (Friday), I am AMAZED with the results!!!

I mean I am a big believer of only eating whole, real food and that is what I teach and coach to my clients, but sometimes I do forget how much of a difference it can be when taking out all processed foods.

The biggest difference I see is in my most difficult area to lose from, and for most women, and that is the lower abdominal area. Processed foods just make me bloat like no other!

I have not stepped on the scale and I don’t plan to. Pictures are a better way of showing results.

I am excited to see what my results will be in the next 5 weeks!

VIDEO: TRX Workout!!

Hey everyone Kori with Train Like A Girl here where I help busy moms was up to 15 pounds of six weeks without spending hours in the gym or going on any restrictive fad diets.

So before we get started with a great TRX Workout, I want to ask if you like this video and then the information in it to make sure you hit the subscribe button below. This way you will get all the latest latest training information on nutrition and fitness.

Hey everyone, Kori with Train Like A Girl.

So today I'm going to show you a very simple workout you can do either at home or on vacation in a hotel with a TRX Suspension Trainer.

Now if you don't have one, no worries I'll put a link in the description below so you can click on all click on it and see what they're all about. But I love these. They are super simple and you can put them in your suitcase if need be.

Now I have mine attached to our rig, but no worries there if you don't have anything to attach it like I have it. You can actually buy a little contraption that fits into your door and it shows you exactly how to use it.

So let's get to it!

The workouts gonna consist of five different exercises. You're gonna do each exercise for 30 seconds then rest for 30 seconds a total of four rounds or 20 minutes super simple.

So for exercise number one we're gonna do is a TRX squat. You're gonna walk back, abs are tight. Hold on to the handles. Nice deep squat drive through the heel stand up. You really don't want to use your arms to pull yourself up you're just using it to hold on.

Exercise 2 is TRX rows. I love these because they're great for pulling those shoulders back and make it a nice well-defined back. Let yourself fall away from the TRX, abs are tight, butt is tight We're gonna squeeze those blades as we pull our elbows down and back. You want to make sure you're not letting yourself fall back but controlling yourself all the way down.

Exercise 3 is the TRX pushup. I'm going to turn myself away from where the TRX is fastened to. Up on our toes, abs are tight, butt is tight and arms straight out in front of us. Come down push yourselves up. Come down push ourselves up. Keep those elbows nice and tight to the body. If where your feet are located It's a little too hard take a small step forward. It'll make it a little bit easier.

Exercise number 4 TRX hamstring curls. You're going to place your feet into the straps, lie down on your back and keep your butt tight. Lift those hips up bring those heels to your butt make sure those hips do not drop every time you curl in.

Exercise number 5 TRX plank crunches, we're gonna place our feet the tops of our feet into he straps. Push up on to your hands into a push-up plank position, abs are tight, butt is tight and knees into the chest.

Those are the five exercises. Again, you're gonna do each exercise 30 seconds of work 30 seconds of rest, go through it four times twenty minutes. If you want to make it a little bit longer.

go through it five, six times. But I promise you you're gonna have a great great workout. I'm already kind of losing my breath.
