Cardio & Explosive Cardio Sessions

The objective of high-intensity sessions is to hit multiple muscles groups at one time during the 60 minutes. Each session finishes with core strength and my own secret combo of “Bride Arm” exercises using free weights. Each week, these sessions increase in intensity. Depending on my client’s abilities I always like to switch it up and keep it interesting. This way, my clients don’t say “I’m bored” and they don’t lose momentum.

High-Intensity Cardio – Your Homework Sessions

You need to do any combination of the following for 40 minutes…

Today is the 34th National Missing Children’s Day, and WE are doing our part to raise awareness by airing episodes of Criminal Minds surrounding this sensitive topic on Mondays starting at 4pm and Saturdays starting at 10am.

Shortly after the season 13 finale, two of the show’s stars, Kirsten Vangsness (Penelope Garcia) and Joe Mantegna (David Rossi), sat down to talk about the show as well as its real life impact on fans. When it comes to missing children, Mantegna told TV Insider:

“I think there’s an educational aspect to this show that people appreciate. You can watch these terrifying moments and it’s intense but there’s also something to be learned from it, and I think that’s of value. Ironically, WE tv is doing this Criminal Minds marathon around missing children, and when you watch those episodes you learn from it. You see the solutions and you can benefit from that in your real life. This is a real organization, and these are real things that happen.”

He went onto add that he actually received a letter weeks earlier in which a woman thanked him for one of the episodes dealing with child abduction. According to Mantegna, her watching and learning from the show may very well have saved an actual child’s life.

“Rock One Sock” is the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s annual social media campaign to bring awareness to the thousands of children missing in America. WE encourage everyone to join the campaign support this important issue. Rocking One Sock is easy!

The staff of The Pink Tea Cup is dwindling while Chef LP’s love interests are multiplying. In LP’s world, you’re either family or you’re an enemy – it’s as simple as that. Here’s a look at what’s on tonight’s menu for the season finale, let’s hope your eyes aren’t bigger than your stomach!

Candice is ready to spill not just the tea, but the whole teapot! Rumors surrounding a threesome between Ana, Candice and LP at a swingers’ bar will finally be confirmed, along with Candice’s motives for being anti-Ana.

Tensions flare between Chef LP and Jon Jon, and Ana and Candice at the Twin’s fashion show. The beef has been simmering between them for far too long. For those looking for something a bit more tender, this dish might be a tad overdone, but WE promise it’s as juicy as ever.

With Candice, Sana and Jon Jon on the outs of The Pink Tea Cup, it’s their turn to form an alliance. Candice is ready to open her own restaurant, but there’s one member of the crew that she’d like to poach – Cola. Will Cola be the icing on this sweet, sweet revenge cake? WE suggest digging into this treat with two spoons.
