The Holidays are upon us and for many that means travel. Don’t let your workouts fall by the wayside! This is the treadmill program I did while in New Orleans this past weekend :) BONUS! Healthy recovery shake below. I do my workout track by track on the Ipod, instead of having to time things.

Work IT Wednesday! Push UP

An oldie (check the hair) but a goodie!

Pushups are THE best upper body exercise and cover your arms, shoulders, back, chest and abs. Do them on your toes and tighten your tush and quads for some total body workin ;)
