Brazil does it Better - pilates butt, thighs and abs workout


Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you will know that I am a nail-polish-aholic. I can claim it as work-related though! There is much finger and toenail looking throughout Ballet Sculpt. The planks, the reaching, the balance work. Looking at chipped, flaky nails would just be depressing!
So!
This post is inspired by OPI's Brazil Collection. And the beautiful Brazilian body. I haven't been, mind you, but it's common knowledge that the Brazilian bikini is the skimpiest outfit there is and while a perfectly taut torso isn't required, a whole lot of confidence in what you have IS.
Here's your checklist for what really matters:
  • Do you know roughly how much protein you require daily and do you meet it?
  • Can you touch your toes?
  • Can you exercise moderately at least 3 times a week?
  • Do you vary your activities?
  • Do you do some form of weight/resistance training (using bands, dumbbells, bars or cables)?
  • Could you run 50 metres to catch a bus without being out of breath?
If you answered no to any of these questions, that's your challenge for the coming two weeks. Make exercise a priority. Think of where your weaknesses are and try to challenge them through your training choices.

I LOVE dancing and I love yoga. I haven't been doing either for over 12 months! So my challenge looks like this:
  • Take dance classes
  • Take yoga classes
  • Paint nails "Don't Bossa Nova Me Around"
In 25 minutes, you can do this quick "Brazilian Butt" workout - you just need a mat. Great pilates techniques given at the start - watch, listen and learn!
