Sexy Butt Workout on the Ball

1. 1-Leg Lunges aka 'butt' Lunges X 15 per leg
  • Place 1-leg behind you on ball. Hang to wall  or something for support to get into position - until you are accustomed to doing this intermediate exercise.
  • Front leg should be far enough forward so when you lunge down your front knee stays OVER YOUR ANKLE. Maintain SHOULDERS OVER HIPS.
  •  Zipper your abs nice & tight!
  • Lunge 'down', rather than forward for the most effect gluteus toning effect.


 2. Ball Leg Press X 15
  • You don't need a machine to do a leg press! Lay down on mat and place feet, soles down onto ball. Bring your bottom close to the ball so that your lower back does not get over-worked.
  •  Keep your abs as you need them for balance in this exercise.
  • Pressing soles of feet into ball, bring bottom up and squeeze gluteus maximus at the top. Slowly lower bottom 3/4 of the way and repeat.


3. Hamstring Curls X 15
  •  Another exercise that you don't need a machine to get the results you want. I personally love this exercise! Lay on mat and place feet, ankles 'anchored' into ball. Bring your bottom close to the ball so that your lower back does not get over-worked.
  • Keep your abs as you need them for balance in this exercise.
  • Digging heels into ball, bring your bottom up and roll ball in as close to your tush as possible, then roll it back out again - the whole time keeping the bottom up.


4. Butt Blaster Lunge X 15 per leg
  • Stand back up and in lunge back with 1-leg, then bring that leg forward and up high. Use your arms to help 'pump' your leg forward & back - to get your heart pumping.
  •  I want to make sure you are working your tush so make sure you lunge down WITH SOFT KNEE to really engage the full buttocks muscles.


5. Beach Booty Blast X 100 per leg (aka Donkey Kicks)
  • Right after your heart-pumping Butt Blaster Lunges, get right back down on mat, one leg up, other knee down for balance. Maintain a BENT KNEE with the leg that is up in the air, at all times - to make sure you work your tush.
  •  Keep those abs tight and don't let them hang out.
  • Focus on your buttock muscles pushing your foot up towards the ceiling. KEEP FOOT UP IN THE AIR FLEXED.
Repeat for 3-rounds, 2-times a week and in 3 weeks you're derriere will be noticeably higher, more toned and tight!

Sexy Arms Workout on the Ball & Bosu

1. Arm Pumps on Ball 8lbs X 24
  • Lie on your back on a ball, tuck-in chin so neck is nice & long and relax those shoulders. These are what I term your 'blind spots' as we tend to forget to check them.
  •  Zipper your abs nice & tight!
  • Pumping one arm at a time, push  dumbbell up a bit faster and lower a bit slower.


2. Wings Blaster Arm Dips X 12
  • Push ball into a wall or corner for more stability. Beginners - have someone spot you AND push ball into a corner.
  •  Keep your abs tight like a drum & secure palms into ball.
  • Slowly lower your bottom down, staying close to the ball - then use those triceps to bring your body back up.
3. 2-Minute Power Row
  •  With an overhand grip - drive your feet into the foot hold and row your little heart out!
  • You are working your arms + abs + legs + posture so be mindful of engaging and tightening these muscle groups!
  • Squeeze shoulder blades when you row back for an added halter top back sculpting tweak.
4. Shoulder Press + Squat 8bls X 20 on Bosu
  • Steady yourself on the Bosu 'half ball'. Beginners, have someone spot you.
  •  Squat down then back up in a smooth motion being very mindful of balance.
  • Squat down with dumbbells at shoulders, as you stand up, tighten abs to keep your balance and press the dumbbells up.



5. Lean & Gorgeous Arm Sculpter on Bosu X 10
  • Flip Bosu over and try these amazing arm-sculpting push-ups. Beginners, do them on your knees.
  •  Keep elbows tucked in for a potent triceps burn & tighten abs.
  • Lower body slowly and push back up with power.
Repeat for 3-rounds, you'll be nice & sore tomorrow :)

Look Sexy in Your Bikini 3- Best Exercises


You don't have to dread exposing your midriff in your bikini this year!

Straight from Salt Spring Weight Loss Retreats, here's three of the best exercises for getting your tummy flat and and ready to shimmy into that bikini for yoga on the beach in no time!







1. Ball Praying Mantis : Kneeling on mat place forearms and hands on ball. Balancing on knees, lift feet and engage abs. Now roll ball outwards a short distance, and roll back in. This movement combines a 'roll out' of the arms with a coordinated 'roll-out' of torso. Remember to to keep abs very tight. For beginner to intermediate.



3. Ball Inch Worm : Place hands on floor and tighten abs. Now think of gripping ball with tops of feet and lift buttocks upwards as you tuck knees into chest. Roll ball back out again. Repeat. Remember to keep abs contracted the entire time and to think of doing a 'inchworm' movement. For intermediate to advanced.




3. Ball Bridge + Medicine Ball Crunch : Position body on ball so that back of shoulders and head are supported. Make sure legs and lower body are in a 'bridge' position and tighten abs + buttocks. With straight arms reach medicine ball behind and lift it forward, curl-up your torso in a crunch movement. Go back down slowly, repeat. Think of 'lifting' with your abs. For intermediate to advanced.
