I love it, I couldn't be happier with the final results of my mug :-)  Now I just need to use it!

A couple weeks ago a reader, Lindsay, emailed me wondering about how to do some of the Calorie Crusher exercises that I posted about a while back. Well I was finally able to make some home videos of most of the moves! Side note: I am a very amateur video maker, so please bear with my video skills.

Box Squat 


Popover

Do one minute (or adjust the time to your needs) with 3 boxes, then bump down to 2 boxes and for the third minute use just one box.  Your speed should quicken as the box height gets smaller.  If you don't have boxes like these, just use a small, medium and large box (one blue box is about 5 inches).  


DB Low Lunge


KB Row


BOSU Squat Press


Slider & Mountain Slider


SB Toe Tap


BOSU DB Back Fly



I hope these videos help Lindsay!  If you look these videos up on YouTube there is a small description about correct form that should be used for each exercise.  I hope you enjoyed the videos and the sneak peak of the gym where I work!

Off to carry on with the rest of my days... run, drink from my coffee mug, work and Grub Club! 
What are you doing today?

    1. I didn't actually do the clay formation part of it, but I decorated it. It was so fun, I recommend it if you ever get the opportunity!
