Do you know what “AMRAP” means? It means “as many rounds as possible”. This is a popular style of workout in crossfit, and I do this kind of workout a lot as well! It is quick, easy, and effective! You don’t need any equipment for this workout, so you can do it any time anywhere. Here is a 20 minute workout where you repeat the rounds as many times as you can in that time. Here are the exercises!

10 burpees

20 push ups

30 sit ups

40 squats

50 second plank

It is so cool seeing how many rounds I can burn through in the short amount of time that I am given! It is so rewarding. If you have 20 minutes to spare, knock this workout out of the park!

XOXO, Chels

Top 4 Reasons Why You Aren’t Seeing Results

Are you kicking booty in the gym, running as much as you can, and trying to eat right but seeing no results? Not only is it discouraging, but it is also a huge bummer when this happens! Not to worry, though, that can easily be fixed! Here are the top 4 reasons you are not seeing results.

  1. You aren’t lifting weights: Cardio is great for your heart health and a great way to lose weight, but if that is the only kind of exercise you are doing and you are leaving the weights in the corner to rot, that is no bueno! After lifting weights, your muscles are burning through calories hours after your workouts, whereas with cardio after you are done, you’re done.
  2. You are doing the same ‘ol same ‘ol every time: If you aren’t mixing up your routine in the gym that can hinder you! Your body gets used to the exercises and isn’t challenged, so you won’t see improvements!
  3. No food discipline: You can go to the gym and kick some serious boootay, but if you come home and eat half a peperoni pizza and three chocolate chip cookies then all of your hard work is for nothing. Be mindful of what you are eating! Remember, weight loss is 20% of exercise and 80% of what you eat.
  4. Sipping away: If you drink a lot of sugary drinks, it can really set you back! Juice, soda, coffee, all of those have
    chelsea crockett soda tons of added sugars and carbs that you just don’t need! Opt for herbal tea or lemon water when you are looking for a drink other than water.

I believe in you, ladies!

Summertime is all about the pool and the beach!  Believe it or not, swimming in a salt water pool or the ocean actually has its benefits!  When it comes to your hair and skin, salt water works wonders.  No wonder our skin is bronzed and glowing in the summertime!Chelsea Crockett- beach hair

  • Salt water is a cleaning agent and a miracle for acne prone skin! The salt is very affective in clearing mild acne and can help smooth over scars. When you pick at zits, they can often start to bleed and scab over. Salt water helps clean out those sores and heal them faster!
  • Have you ever noticed how your hair is dry after swimming in the ocean? That’s because salt water acts as a natural shampoo. It rids your scalp of oils that make your hair greasy and dirty. It also acts as an exfoliator for your scalp and can help get rid of dandruff!
  • Salt water can help clear your head. If your nose is stopped up, salt water can help clear your nasal passages so you can breathe again! It’s a wonderful, natural way to take care of your sinus problems!

Instead of going to the dermatologist or doctor this summer, hit the beach instead!  It’s time to jump in the ocean!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Hot Spots to Focus on In the New Year

Hello Insiders,

            Welcome to 2014!  I can’t believe how quickly time goes by.  Doesn’t it feel like just yesterday you were a little kid?  When looking back on life, I’m sure you can find a lot of things to be thankful for.  I know I can!  As you get older, it’s important to focus yourself on more important things, rather than material goals.  Focus on being a better you and making others happy!
            Getting into the high school and college scene can be fun, but never forget about your family or spirituality.  This year, I challenge you to spend more time with your family and with God.  I know it can be hard to pay grandma a visit when you have a million things to do, but just think about the joy that it will bring to her!  Also, focus on becoming closer with God.  Buy a devotional, talk with others, or download some spiritual music on your iPod.  I promise, it’s not that hard!Chelsea Crockett- eating healthy

            You always hear of the classic line, “I’m going to lose weight this year.”  STOP.  Instead of saying “losing weight” say, “I’m going to be healthy this year.”  As long as you exercise and eat healthy, then who cares if you are stick thin!  Focus on being a healthier you, not a skinnier you. 

            Come up with a list of things to challenge yourself with this year.  They don’t have to be resolutions, just small things to work on.  With a few simple tweaks in your lifestyle, you’ll discover a happier you.

Love,

            Chelsea
