TRX Core Workout

I’m super excited to share three of my favorite core conditioning exercises utilizing the TRX suspension trainer with you! All you need is a suspension trainer – any will do but this is the one I prefer – Get a Suspension Trainer. In any case, check out the video below and I will explain how many to do afterwards.

Exercise 1 – Plank Frogger – Perform 3 sets of 10-20 repetitions, whichever suits your current fitness level.

Exercise 2 – Suspended Mountain Climbers – Perform 3 sets of 15-20 repetitions. This exercise will feel slightly easier than the previous.

Exercise 3 – Pike – Perform 3 sets of 10-20 repetitions as this is a challenging exercise for sure.

Add these exercises to your core conditioning ab routine once per week to keep that tummy tight and toned!

Get Dancer’s Legs with Hamstring Curls

Want “tutu worthy” legs without having to put in all of the hours at the dance studio? My favorite exercise for getting the legs tight and toned in a pinch is a variation of the hamstring curl. Done using a large exercise ball, this exercise will leave your hamstrings popping whether you are looking to feel confident at the beach or for a night out on the town. Give it a try!

Tutu Tuesday Hamstring Curl

Directions: Start with the legs resting in a turned out position on the ball. Make sure your knees are straight. Now slowly bridge the hips up, keeping the arms at your sides for support. With the feet flexed, slowly curl the ball in towards your back. Repeat for 12-15 repetitions or as many as your fitness level will allow!

Suspension Training Feature

Nikol Klein Human TrainerHave you tried suspension training yet? I love suspension training as it is a great way to use your own body weight for a fun and effective workout without putting stress on the joints! Best of all it is portable and gives you a full-body resistance and cardiovascular workout. Great for all levels of fitness too.

I am so excited to be the featured user for The Human Trainer for the month of April. I have been working with the company and the device for over a year now, having the opportunity to test the suspension trainer with my clients. Don’t confuse this device with TRX though, it has much more versatility and options. The dual anchor system allows for better symmetry and balance, and if you are like me who goes to the chiropractor each week to get fine tuned, you will appreciate this!

The Human Trainer is a terrific tool for those of you who like to workout at home! This device can be securely anchored to a door in your home. I have had many clients purchase these from me because they love working out with them on their days off with me and/or stretching out those sore muscles with the device! I have to admit, it is pretty handy to have.

Be sure to check out my article all about why I love to use Human Trainer with my clients! READ MORE

Isolate Your Biceps!

This week’s “Train-hard Tuesday” tip is all about the Biceps. Your body adapts to doing the same exercises all of the time, so be sure to switch it up next time with this exercise that isolates the biceps, big time!

©Nikol Klein BicepsTry this exercise with lighter weight than you would normally curl and perform 12-15 repetitions, 3 times. Be sure to keep your shoulder planted firmly on the bench to keep from using momentum to curl the weight. Comment below and let me know how it goes!

Ultimate Booty Boost Workout

This week’s click and print workout is the Ultimate Booty Boost. You will be targeting the glutes with three different exercises: Single leg glute bridge, single leg box squats, and bench step ups. These three exercises combined will fire up all areas of the glutes and have your tush feeling tight.
