PMS Abs...yes you read that right.

It's that time of month and you want to die. Sorry boys, skip to 2:27 if you don't want the girl talk. But all you ladies know what I'm talking about. You're bloated, uncomfortable, and don't want to leave your house. This is a quick follow-along ab workout that won't make you want to vomit any more than you already do. When you get over the hump, pair this workout with high intensity cardio/high intensity interval training (HIIT) for a total body workout.

While the Smith family watched Miley's amazing VMA performance like this:

I was busy making the now historic performance into a "twerkout game".   Exactly what is a twerkout game, you may ask?  Well it's like a drinking game except it will make you get off your lazy bum and burn calories like crazy.   My latest video will explain it all...

Piglets, Puppies, and Planking Reps

KymNonStop cute animal video

So I’ve been thinking…they say exercise is a lot of work for little reward. But what if I could personally reward you just for following along with my workout videos? In my latest video, I do just that by providing a cute animal picture for every rep!

Puppies, kittens, and even a piglet! These pictures were submitted by you, Nonstoppers! And they are awesome and cute and funny all at the same time. But you only get to see them by following along with my workout.

The way it works? Watch the video! Do a rep and a cute animal pic will pop-up on the screen. Enjoy!

Get Bikini-ready with 3 Simple Moves

poolside kym

Summer is coming up – are you bikini ready? My new video, shot poolside at the gorgeous Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, shows you 3 moves to get you that sexy bikini body in time for summer.

Single-Leg Deadlift w/ Pushup 10 each leg (works total body) – on one leg, fold in half and touch the ground. Walk on your hands until you’re body is horizontal. Do a full pushup. Walk your hands back to your feet and then come back up to a standing position – but don’t let that other foot touch the ground!

Single-Leg Hip Lift 20 per leg (glutes & hamstrings) – lie on your back. Bend one knee so that your foot is flat against the ground. Lift your other leg straight up. Now for the tricky part – keep your butt off the ground at all times. Lower the leg (that’s extended upward) down until it’s almost touching the ground and then lift back up.

After 20 of these, keep your leg up and “pulse” your hips. Essentially you want to rock your hips so that your butt, abs, and leg is moving but you’re never touching the ground.

Slo-Mo Bicycle Crunch 20 slow reps (abs & obliques) – lie on your back. Place your fingers on each side of your head and touch your bent elbows to the outside of each knee as you do the crunch. As you switch from elbow to knee, hold it for a moment. Also, try to make it so that your legs never touch the ground.

Good luck getting in shape. Hope to see you by the pool this summer!

How to Stretch Right and Steal Croissants

kym squeeze

I gotta thank the Nonstoppers for this one. By request, here’s my video on how to stretch. I’ve selected my top three stretches for your hip flexors, glutes, and inner thighs. First, the half-assed “hey I can kinda, sorta, nearly touch my toes” stretches have gotta stop. Instead, try some of these…

1. Hip Flexors Stretch – lunge and squeeze your butt cheeks together (with your glutes, not with your hands, duh). Push your heel down and bend your knee (on the front leg). You should feel it in the hip flexors. This is a great stretch for cyclists.

2. Inner Thigh Stretch (aka adductor stretch, aka the sexy stretch) – put your weight on one leg and come down into a squat. Stick out the other leg and hold it. It may be difficult to keep your balance so feel free to use a chair. Lean into your hip.

3. Glutes Stretch – sit down and cross one leg over the other with your ankle against your thigh. This will create a “leg hole”. Link your hands through your “leg hole” and around your thigh. Lie on your back and gently pull your foot (the one on your other leg) to your chest.

Watch the video for more details on how to stretch properly, or just to see me squeeze my ass. And feel free to ask questions in the comments.
