The R.I.P. Workout
Targets: Core/abs, biceps, triceps, shoulders
No it’s not called that because you’re gonna die. Well you’ll get close…BUT R.I.P. stands for “Rest in Plank”. You are not allowed to EVER get out of plank during this whole routine. Even when you’re “resting” between each move.
Try this routine 3x through. You are allowed to come into Child’s Pose after you finish one full circuit. 1 min max though. Then up again.
Here’s the Plank Arm Workout video which is very similar. If you need motivation, do it with me :)
CRAZY HARD Arm workout that kept me SHAKING!!!
It’s basically bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, and elbow raises with a 3-5lb weight in plank THE WHOLE TIME. No resting in between sets. Sorry guys.
WOW. I did not expect this workout to be so hard for me. You need to try this and let me know how you do. It’s a good one to start off the week with! And don’t forget to subscribe to BlogilatesTV to get all my other HIIT and circuit workouts.
Slim ‘n Sexy Summer Arms (Printable Workout)
1. Tricep Dip in Reverse Plank x20
Get up onto your palms and heels and lift your butt off the mat, hips in line, pelvis up. Bend your elbows back as you touch your booty to the floor. Then straighten out again. MODIFICATION: Bring your heels closer to the body and bend your knees like you’re a coffee table.
2. Chest Press Pulses x30
Keeping your elbows together, simply pulse up! You will soooooooo feel this one in your chest without even try! One of my favorite moves in the world.
3. Pushup x10
You can do this on your knees or toes. Make sure you keep your eyes forward. DO NOT look underneath you!
4. Cobra Pushup x10
Begin in plank. Pretend there is a limbo pole right in front of you head. Slither your head underneath it…followed by your back, your butt, and your legs before you gull push up. MODIFICATION: Make the limbo stick higher :) If you’re having trouble, see my video on Advanced Pushup Variations.
5. Inverse Shoulder Press (Pushup) x10
Get into downward dog. Then scoot your hands closer to your legs. Look back at the toes. Now do a pushup and touch the top of your head to the mat. See demonstration video here. MODIFICATION: Don’t bring your hands so close to your feet.
6. One-Legged Cobra Pushup x10
Same as cobra pushup but one leg up! Do 10 on each side.
If you have any questions about the different types of pushups and how they look, please see my video on Advanced Pushup Variations.
Print, share, and sweat!
PS…Oops, Did I say “pushup” too many times in this workout :P
POP Pilates: Tricep Toner!

“Till the World Ends” Total Body Workout! POP Pilates for Britney Spears!
I thought it’d be fun to make a real quick workout to just one song. Like the most popular song of the week! This week it’s for Britney Spears, in celebration of her music video debut of “Till the World Ends”.
It’s 3 minutes and 58 seconds of a total body workout. We go hard core in this one guys. It starts out with a couple cobra pushups and then works through your chest, arms, and core. Pretty good, I was definitely feeling it!
Umm yeah, so about the outfit! I originally was gonna go all out and wear fishnets and glitter and all that craziness so I could be a much toned down version of an Asian Britney but yeah that just didn’t happen. I kept the leg warmers though because I thought it looked cool.
Well, enjoy the video and try to do it 2-3 more times. Write me and lemme know how far you get and how you feel most importantly!!!
Move of the Day: Plyo Pushup
Works your chest, arms. Will also bring your heart rate up for some fat blasting!
Start in a pushup position either on your knees or your toes. Make sure your tailbone is tucked and your abs are in. Go down into a push up (keep your eyes forward) and then with force, spring off the floor, clap if you can, and come right back down into the lowered pushup position. That’s one. Try as many as you can. You can omit the clap and work up to it as you get stronger.
POP Pilates for Beginners! I did a full length video that truly explains the principles behind some very basic Pilates exercises. If you’ve tried my set of POP Pilates workouts already out there, you may have felt like a lot of the moves were very advanced. Well, they are advanced. Don’t be intimidated. You’ll get there one day, start with this beginner’s video first.
You’ll learn about breathing, control, and proper form. Good workout for those of you who have never done Pilates before and good knowledge for you guys who have been with me for a WHILE now.
I really didn’t think it would be this long, but I guess with all of the explaining it just had to be! I hope you enjoy!
