@womensbestwear bicycle shorts are now available in brand new colors! ��������♀️ Honest review: I LOVE THEM! Long enough to give my legs coverage with a comfortable seamless waist band and cuffs, and they come in these colors: charcoal, black, washed light grey, red, khaki, Camo green and Camo grey �� — Here are a variety of lower body exercises that you can easily do at home with light weights or even body weight (just increase the number of reps) �� Slide 1: contra lateral step ups (by holding the weight on the opposite side that you step up you get more of that side Glute which gives you that coveted top Glute shelf 2) prone hamstring curl. You won’t need a lot of weight here, trust me. If you don’t have a full step to lie on, just prop your knees up on a rolled up a mat and you’ll still find these tough! �� 3) contralateral single leg deadlifts: these are hard to do BUT they teach you how to get tight. I started out holding onto a wall and then graduated to doing these without support. �� 4) sumo partial deadlifts: the trick to these is just pulsing around the midpoint, and really pushing the knees out wide to target the side glutes and inner thighs 5) banded fire hydrants: so good for the side glutes, do these with intension! 6) banded quadruped kickbacks: kick back and up with a bent knee, really squeezing the whole Glute 7) banded scissor kickbacks. These are one of my favorites for finishing off my glutes and I beg you to try them!! ���� — You can do 3-4 sets of 10-12 each of the weighted exercises and sets of 12-16 reps of the banded exercises. Please give this lower body workout a try and let me know how it goes ���� . @womensbest @womensbestwear
Joan MacDonald contó a varios medios de comunicación que luego de que se separara de su esposo cayó en una depresión que dejó problemas de salud como artritis, hipertensión y niveles de colesterol por los cielos.
Sin embargo, la septuagenaria no se dejó vencer y con ayuda de su hija Michelle MacDonald, quien es una entrenadora profesional, comenzó a cambiar su estilo de vida.
Let’s talk about gym style, something I never would have considered to be important even just two years ago... When I first started out on my transformation journey, I hated trying on clothes, and in fact most of my clothes barely fit me any more so I had just a few bottoms and tops to choose from. Baggy shorts and over-sized t-shirts in boring colors were my go-to. I didn’t love myself back then and that’s how I dressed myself. I used to think 1) I didn’t deserve beautiful clothes and 2) nothing nice would fit me anyway, especially at my age. It wasn’t until my daughter insisted that I buy some new workout clothes and took me shopping at @forever21 that I understood that that mindset wasn’t working for me. When I saw myself in flattering clothes in cute colors, I could see that my inner dialogue had to go. I actually had muscles! I actually had a good shape taking form! I felt so good inside to see that in those new clothes. ��Even though it might seem like something superficial like clothing can’t have a big impact on how we see ourselves it absolutely can my dears! If I can learn that lesson in my seventies you can too. Now you won’t catch me heading to the gym (or my living room as the case may be ��) without taking the time to chose a favorite outfit. My daughter tells her clients, “you have to invest the same love and compassion for yourself at the START of your transformation that would to your own daughter if she was in your shoes. You would encourage her, compliment her on her successes no matter how small, and you would treat her to some workout clothes that were flattering, wouldn’t you? So learn to do that for yourself, and replace that negative inner dialogue with a positive one”. Now I’m sharing this with you. �� Please don’t wait til you’re “perfect” to take pride in yourself. You have to already see your perfection, your effort and your courage today. Love yourself enough to change, and show yourself that love daily. On the right I’m wearing one of my favorite outfits by @womensbest . If you have any questions please ask below, and share your favorite gym-wear brands with each other! With Love Joan �� . #womenbest #womensbestwear
Señaló que en tres años logró bajar más de 24 kilos y tonificar su cuerpo.
Cuando comencé nunca creí que llegaría hasta aquí. Yo sólo quería recuperar mi salud y dejar los medicamentos. Espero que todos sigan eligiendo crecer y atreverse a soñar otra vez”, dijo la mujer en entrevista para un medio local.
Joan MacDonald ahora se dedica a compartir sus rutinas diarias y motiva a sus más de 700 mil seguidores.
Stay strong!!! ����♀️����♀️����♀️ As a big “thank you” to all of you for the love and support you’ve given me, I am going to be leading a live video this Saturday right here. For this upcoming at home workout session you will need just a pair of circular bands (the small ones) and your warm body. My bands are by @hopefitnessgear and part of their proceeds go towards helping our youth fight back against illness.. It’s a great cause! Please tag someone who needs this motivation ���� It’ll be about half an hour, and a sweaty one. ���� I’ll be doing all the exercises with you, huffing and puffing away. Don’t be afraid to join me. Make it a family affair. Remember I have a bad knee, a bad shoulder, and lately even my left butt cheek has been acting up. �� that’s the joys of getting a wee bit older. Anyways, if I can do it, YOU can do it! �������� See you at 8 am EDT (TORONTO/NYC time), this April 18th. . Outfit: @womensbest pink seamless ���� #fitover70 #homeworkout #womensbestwear
