Stairway to a Heavenly Ass

Yes! Walk the damn stairs. Especially if you're only going two flights up, take the stairs. Elevators are gross anyways. People stink, they make uncomfortable dumb small talk and the music sucks. Even more motivation to get those buns burnin'!

                              No more mushy tushy.

Walking the stairs not only burns a ton of calories but also works every muscle in your legs, especially the glutes and calves. Doctor's claim it's twice as taxing as brisk walking and 50 percent harder than walking up a steep hill or even lifting weights. What's more exciting...  cardiologists tell their heart patients that they're fit enough to have sex if they can walk up two or three flights comfortably. So get stepping and get love making!

Strengthen your heart and lungs with each step up. This helps deliver more oxygen enriched blood to your sexy muscle fibers.  As I'm sure you've heard, exercise releases endorphins, this makes you feel happier. So when you get to that 2nd floor you'll be smiling and re-energized while those who took the elevator will get out looking annoyed and humming that stupid song that was playing.

Hot for Heavy Metal

Sometimes we get tired of the same old workouts.  Sometimes we get tired of the same old partner...but what you do with them can be applied to your exercise routine too!

The Top 5 Ways to re-vamp your love affair with heavy sweating ;)

5) Try out a different position. Maybe you always do the same old boring Bicep Curls exercise. Can you say missionary position.  Try hitting your bi's with some hammer curls, incline that bench & lay back a while or double grip it with a Barbell Curl. Just change up the monotony.

4) Throw a gadget into the mix.  You always see the various fitness balls, resistance bands and other toys but have been to shy to try them out. Ask the hottest trainer to give you a quick tutorial. Maybe all your workout needed was a little variety.

3) Enlist the help of a swing. If you've been doing plain ol' normal yoga, check out an Aerial Yoga class that hangs your limber body from the sky in a sexy silk hammock.  One sure way to get to your splits faster!

2) Make a new playlist.  If you're still trying to get motivated from tunes that expired 10 years ago it's no wonder you can't get your exercise chubby to the gym.  Download some fresh exciting jams and it will enliven your next workout.

1) Aim for at least one set. If you're not in the mood but you know you realllllly should work out, then just tell yourself to start with a quickie warm up and you'll hit one set of every muscle group. Next thing you know you are warmed up, the new tunes are motivating you and maybe you'll rock out the entire workout. If not, at least you did a little something and that does count!

The only thing I love more than dirty jokes is dogs and kitties!! Animals bring so much happiness, laughter and love into your life and it breaks my heart so many die in shelters daily.
