Operating as usual

Full body Friday! Today it’s with a KB. Dumbbells can be subbed in, but the KB definitely helps engage the core slightly more.
The sixth slide, the table top KB renegade row is a super challenge- be careful!

Bonded together. Core focused band moves. Adding the mini band to mid section moves we already know about brings a whole new challenge!

Full body Friday! CRAZY 8s!

This one is no joke:
8 reps of each

Atomic push ups
Man makers
Ball throw box jump burpees
Leg climbers (8 each side)
Plank walk out
Full hanging clean
Weighted windmill
Kang squat with wide row
Unstable shrimp squat

Pushing the push up game!
Push ups are my favorite exercise; once you master the standard, try these variations to amp up the arm and ab game!

Full body Friday!

Here’s the format:
Do each exercise for 2 minutes with a :20 break between each.
Do each exercise for 1:30 with a :20 break between each.
Do each exercise for 1 minute with a :15 break between each.
Do each exercise for :30 with a :10 break between each.

Core from your crib! All around and with zero equipment! Enjoy!

Can we talk about how PERFECT this new welcome mat for Ripped is?

Thank you, Jess!

This was a tough one; if you work fast, leave yourselves 45 minutes. If you’re a bit slower paced, take an hour.

Here’s how it works:
5 pairs of exercises
Each round does move A in the pair for 10 reps, then move B for 10. Then move A for 8 reps, move B for 8. Move A for 5, move B for 5. Then back to 8 and then 10. Once complete, move to the next pair.

Pairs are placed back to back in the video:
(Wo)man makers and reverse crunch
Handstand shoulder taps and wall ball
Box jump burpee and heavy squat
Pike pull in/reverse OH lunges
Squat w upright row and ball pass.

Go be a beast! 💪🏼💪🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼😘

I have lost significant strength since March but getting back on these felt good and hopeful; and very accommodating to where I’m at right now.

Okay, I’m sort of kidding with that last one but it DID help sweeten the deal knowing that I accepted this challenge by @richardgrannon, succeeded, and was the first one to succeed properly for him to see, earning me a small and unexpected windfall!

AC/DC song thunderstruck.
High plank for the duration.
Push up every single time they say the word, “thunder”.
Hear me drop at least 4 F bombs throughout.

Try! 🙌🏼❤️👍🏼

What do I eat? A lot of protein and a lot of fat with clean carbs. And wine. And tequila.

Last night for dinner it was this:
QUINOA BOWL with salmon, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted cauliflower, roasted Brussels sprouts, diced carrots, diced red pepper, baby arugula, roasted beets, and avocado. I could eat it every night; but for now 3 nights a week works!

What’s in your bowl?

All band home workout!

"...when you no longer live together and your parents are old and enfeebled, or perhaps already gone, petals fallen from that same wilted flower, you will have each other in a way that is different than you will ever have anyone else. The lives you have made, and the people you will become, will emerge in part from your secret hours together, lost in a fort of your own making or laughing as you tell jokes long after your bedtime as your giggles merge with your dreams. The intensity of your bond can sustain you through anything, and I wish for you to remain close, more than anything else I can ever wish for you...". *wish for my siblings and for my beautiful children. stay close.

Happy siblings day! I miss you girls. Xox
@lizaf24 @ninaf44 @hframz how the hell does Lauren not have IG? ❤️




Here’s the thing. We’ve all lost a little control right now. We watch. We wait. We wash. We wonder. We pray. And pace. And hopefully we all take the urgency and seriousness of what’s happening right now responsibly.
My responsibility (and joy) is giving you safe ways to move your body. This isn’t about weight, looks, overweight, underweight. Today- ESPECIALLY today- this is about your physical health, your mental health, your determination to be strong and healthy and capable. That has always been and continues to be my goal for you (and for myself)!
*pulse push up
*mr/mrs T
*press to OH hold sit up
*dead lift to goblet *hopping DB pick ups
*tabletop shoulder/knee touches *reverse lunge to toe touch *half split squat with front raise
*squat to double DB snatch
*pulsing 3/4 squat with static bicep

Don’t forget to hit and purchase live or online full length videos! ❤️

I’m SO PROUD of my online classes; either live in real time or to order for you to watch when you’re ready.

We are kicking ASS at home and with minimal equipment.

Get your sweat on with me today by going to and signing up NOW OR by messaging me through the website.

Corona doesn’t mean you have to go it alone-a! 💪🏼👍🏼🙏🏼😘
