Operation Disco Pants: An Internet Lovers Guide to Exercise

I hope you're all enjoying reading these posts as much as I've loved hearing all about your journey's to health and weightloss.  For me, the thought of exercising is almost always worse than actually doing it, and I don't think you can beat the adrenaline rush you get after finishing an intensive workout.  There are lots of wonderful websites and You Tube channels that I use to help plan out my exercise routine, but my absolute favourite is run by an amazing fitness and Pilates instructor Cassey Ho, called Blogilates.

Cassey's energy is completely infectious - she really knows how to motivate her viewers and has numerous different workout plans, all of which are set to amazing music - you can even request Cassey to design a workout to your favourite song! Her videos are a combination of 'Pop Pilates' and 'Pop Cardio' and has videos that specifically target problem areas such as 'Pop Pilates: Muffin Top Meltdown' or the 'What makes you bootyful butt challenge'.  Love a bit of One Direction while I whip my booty into shape. 

One of my favourite workouts on Blogilates is the 'Pop Cardio: Fat Melting Routine.

The first time I ever did this routine, I remember thinking 'paaaaaah this will be easy'. OH MY GOD I was wrong - those bloody push up burpees killed me (if you don't watch the full thing skip to the end to see what I'm talking about), especially as you have to repeat the routine four times.  It definitely gets your heart rate up!!  

An app that has really helped me stay on track with my exercise routine is the Weight Training app (it's free!) It has all of the Blogilates routines programmed in which you can enrol yourself in, creating a workout plan for your entire week.  I currently do the Fat Melting routine three times a week, and the Blogilates Bikini Blaster Workout Plan 2 days a week.  The Weight Training app calculates how many calories you burn which helps when using My Fitness Pal!

Cassey also has a wonderful blog and Tumblr which has loads of inspirational posts and meal ideas.  If you like having fun while exercising, I definitely recommend blogilates!!!!
