Weekly Workout Series

Weekly Workout Series: Glide it Out

Good morning everyone! I hope those of you with snow have survived the storm. What better way to spend a snow day than with some home workout videos?!

I went to the gym the other day and spent some time revisiting glider workouts. And, let me tell you, it was tough!! Partly I was just tired, but partly I found it very difficult to do just 8 more on top of the reps that already made me feel like collapsing. But it hurts so good and these are SO effective! Plus, it gave me two ideas. 1) I need to get working on a new glider workout video for the blog, and 2) why not make it this week’s theme for weekly workout series?

You may notice this video is 20 minutes long. You might also notice the quality is pretty sub par (although I guess with my budget limitations and inexperience, most of my videos aren’t the greatest– but, hey, I can try!). Well, it turns out that this was my first video ever. Yep, first one. I used the video camera on my laptop and just went for it. I was so excited when I came up with the idea for this blog, and couldn’t wait to get it started. And now here I am, almost a year later, and I’m so grateful for how much it’s grown! So thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement 🙂

Enjoy!

P.S.- Sorry about my absent meal plan post yesterday. This week is my spring break and I have a lot going on so I figured it’d be easiest to push it off one more week. I’ll search for some good healthy recipes and post soon.

  1. Hahahahah you should have seen me doing this workout in my living room tonight. Gliders = hand towels. Body bar = chair and ski poles! Gotta be resourceful!

    This was a great workout, possibly one of my faves. I LOVE gliding! Thank you dear!

  2. Hey Tori,

    I’ve been working out about 4-5 days a week; muscle toning and running; and have lost 17 pounds. I’ve noticed a everything sliming down but am having the most trouble with my lower abs. Which workout do you suggest focusing on to improve that trouble spot?
    Thanks.

    • Hi Katie,
      Congrats! 17 pounds is a big deal!! The best exercises for lower abs are definitely leg lifts (and leg lift variations). I don’t really have videos with those because I have some lower back issues and those tend to exacerbate them. But I do have videos that target the entire abdomen; my absolute favorite are the “Abs Challenge Series.” There are 4 levels and they make me SO sore- upper, lower, and side abdominals. Another option is any type of plank video- those will tone abs along with the rest of the body. You can find them using the word cloud links to the right of the blog or by typing in the search box.
