How to Do a Star Jack - Video Tutorial


Remember those jumping jacks you did as a kid? Well they are back... but in a big way! Think BIG - think Star Jacks! It's time to infuse these babies into your workout to get your heart rate and your metabolism soaring. 

Watch this to find out how - it's simple!




How could I incorporate these? Well... you will find Star Jacks already incorporated into our She Sweats Workout Programs, but you can also put them in your workout too. You could bust out 10 or 12 of these if you are between strength training sets and want to get your heart rate up (don't forget to rest for a few seconds before continuing your workout) or even if you are out for your morning jog and want to do some interval training. Try running up a hill, taking a break, incorporating some Star Jacks, a quick break and then repeating the cycle.  

The possibilities are endless!

Enjoy!

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus



Every once in a while in the Staples household, we get fancy. Remember, we have a 16-month old (who wolfed down two of these entire "packs" of asparagus AND salmon - wow!), so we don't have time to spend hours in the kitchen. These are the perfect appetizer or side dish to make for parties or a romantic dinner because they take all of 5 minutes to prep and about 10-12 minutes to bake.  Their taste is amazing too!

Note: Wondering if bacon is clean? We buy the best cuts of organic bacon we can find. This means humanely raised, pasture-raised pork with very little to no sugars. 

Ingredients:
24 fresh asparagus stalks
3 pieces of bacon, cut in half 
6 wood toothpicks
---
coarse grind sea salt
coarse grind black pepper
onion powder




Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 385 degrees F. 
2. Prepare your asparagus stalks by washing/rinsing and cutting off ends.
3. Group 4 asparagus stalks together and secure by wrapping a piece of bacon around the stalks and securing with a toothpick.
4. Place on a foil-lined baking pan and sprinkle sea salt, black pepper and onion powder on asparagus/bacon "packs" to taste.
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until bacon is fully cooked. 
6. Allow to cool slightly. Serve warm.

Serving Size: 
Count on about 2-3 "packs" per person.

Enjoy!

Ab Exercise - Stability Ball Roll-Ins


Looking for a great ab exercise that you can do at home? Grab your stability ball and try these Stability Ball Roll-Ins! You will find these in our She Sweats workout plans and we wanted to provide a visual as to know to preform them correctly.

STABILITY BALL ROLL-INS

1. Place your lower shins on an exercise ball keeping your arms straight out in front (you might need to "walk" your hands into this position).
2. Keep your back as straight as possible and pull the exercise ball in using your core. Keep your upper body stationary.
3. Hold for a few seconds and slowly roll the ball back to the starting position.
4. Repeat for the prescribed amount of repetitions.

You will probably look like this after - exhausted!
