Abs



HAPPY 2012!

I just finished doing some ab exercises.

OK, so people tell me that I have got a good figure and everything, and I guess it's true ... ish, but what I really want are abs.

ha ha, and you are probably laughing now, but it's true.

I just bought a new Ipod Touch (it's really awesome, got wi-fi and everything!) I was browsing the app store the other day and found this a.m.a.z.i.n.g. app. It's called 'ab workouts.'

The app is free, and it's got a whole lot of ab exercises you can do to get those muscles working. Some of them include:

- Abdominal Holds

- Bicycle Crunches

- Planks

- Side Crunches

- Sit Ups

You can click on each exercise and it will tell you how to do each exercise properly.
I have found this very useful as it gives me lots of new exercises to do, as well as teaches me how to do them properly.

If you are wanting to get fit and/or get abs, I highly recommend this ap.

Something else that also helps me when I'm doing these exercises is music. I've got a whole lot of great music on my iPod, so putting this on when I'm exercising really helps, especially if it's got a fast beat.

Thanks for reading/commenting. I'll be back again to do another post soon.

I'm really interested in fitness so I should look into getting some apps like that one. I also love to listen to music, it's helpful during a challenging workout.

Hi Izi

I NEVER knew you wanted abs!!! I am a bit surprised, but I can tell it is something that would be very helpful, and if you like the look... it's great ( ;

I remember that core strength (abs) was very important in gymnastic training. I could imagine that they are also vital for ballet. Although, I'd rather work on upper arm strength, since I now do netball, good abs are a bit useless, and I can't be bothered training for a strength that isn't really necessary to my sport. However, I should do more working out to get fitter and stronger in general.

By the way if you want more exercises for good abs, I could give you some more suggestions, that I did in gymnastics. ( :

Just a quick question, do you still listen to Justin Biber?

Izi said...

Hello Erica, thanks for finding my blog and commenting, I really appreciate it!! If tour dream is to be a pro dancer, it will take a loooooooot of hard work, but if you want to, and set you heart on it, I'm sure you will achieve. Good luck and have fun! If you need to ask any questions I'm more than happy to answer them for you! About the hair... Great question, you know...... I reckon I'll do a post about that for you a sap!! It take a bit of explaining so I reckon it is best for me to do an actual post on it. Plus, as I said.... It's an awesome question. Thanks again!! Izi :)

Hey Izi,

Lauren said...

Hey followers of this blog,

I know Izi pretty well, so I thought I'd just comment on this blog because a few of you are probally wondering what happened to Izi.

SHE IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL!

Yeah, well, a while ago, Izi told me that she's tired of blogging, and now she doesn't even do ballet, she's stopped blogging. She was going to delete this blog, but i suggested not to, in case she wanted to blog again, she has all theses followers. So this blog is not really operating, just letting you know.

~Lauren

Hi Izi, you have an awesome blog and I was wondering if you would be interested in doing some ballet guest writing for Tribesports.com? It would be great to see how ballet and fitness go hand in hand and I'm sure our users would find it interesting. You can reach me at blog@tribesports.com if you are interested.

Thanks!

Adrian
