Circuit Workout – C/TS

Screen Shot of Circuit Workout - Fit2B.com

One of my favorite ways to get a quick, challenging workout – that’s also easily scalable if I’m low on energy – is to set up a home circuit. I put various props around my house and go through them two times, doing anywhere from 5 – 20 reps of each activity. This workout will […]

Weightlifting 201 - C/TS - Fit2B.com - TummySafe Weightlifting 201 Workout - fit2b.com

If this workout doesn’t turn your muscles to mush {in a good way} then you’re ready for heavier weights, because, as I say many times throughout the routine itself, “Oh. My. Goodness.” I practiced and practiced this workout to prepare to not be so sweaty and out of breath while filming, but nope! This pattern […]

C/TS – Classic Flow B

C/TS - Classic Flow B - Fit2b.com - Yoga Classic Flow B. Learn the traditional sun salutation Surya Namaskara series with tummysafe modification and better breathing.

Many mainstream Yoga studio classes will begin with 3-5 rounds of Surya Namaskara A followed by B. It’s meant to be a rigorous warm up, and few form cues are given as it’s understood (or assumed) that everyone in the room can execute the proper technique and breathing. However, many people haven’t been taught. They […]

C/TS – Tabata Ball Workout

Tabata Ball Workout - fit2b.com

Just hearing the word “Tabata” is enough to make some folks’ knees ache. But Bethany takes the risk of knee injury out of the equation by slowing down the reps a wee bit. It’s still the same pattern: 8 sets of one exercise. 20 seconds per set. 10 seconds rest between each set, for five […]

TS/C – Ab Attack!

Ab Attack - fit2b.com

Normally I’m not a big fan of “attacking” our abdominals, because in the mainstream fitness industry, that can often mean “shredding” and “ripping” our core apart, literally.
