The LGF KISS Workout

Sure, doing a double twist pike to lunge push up from a reverse headstand position is great, but sometimes you’ve gotta take things back to basics. Yep, in my humble opinion there’s a lot to be said for the simpler things in life.

I’ve kept that at the front of my mind while designing this little workout for you tonight. All you’ll need is yourself, a kettlebell and a sturdy step or box. And you know what? If you don’t have those things then just switch in a different exercise – it’s that simple.LGF.kissworkout

Five Fit Minutes with… Georgina Smith

Georgie.5mins
I love being surrounded by people who have the same passion for health and fitness that I do. I love to hear about their exercise routines, what they like to eat after a workout, what they like to listen to when they’re pounding the pavement and what it is that inspires them to push through their pain barrier or ignore that the little voice in their head that tells them to hit the snooze button.

This week I’ve got six particularly fun variations for you to try. All will challenge you, some may try to break you. Don’t let them – you got this. [Read more...]

Things I Am Thankful For

thankfulheader.lgf
Us humans are funny creatures. So many of us seem programmed to look on the negative side of things… to see the grey cloud instead of the silver lining, the rain rather than the rainbow. I know I’ve been guilty of this on many an occasion (lord knows how many times my Dad has told me to stop seeing the glass as half empty!) but something has changed within me recently, and I am really finding myself feeling joyful at the most unexpected of moments. So much so that I’ve decided to put together a list of the things I am grateful for. [Read more...]

Push Up Tutorial

Pushup_progression.lgfPush ups. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, you know they’re good for you. Personally I think they’re an underrated exercise – a good push up works plenty of muscle groups, including the chest, shoulders, triceps, biceps and core. They’re a tough exercise, and not many people really do them well. But let me tell you a little secret – the best way to get better at push ups is to do more push ups! [Read more...]
