Our February 30 Day Challenge continues from the Turks and Caicos. The Island we are staying on is beautiful in every way that you can imagine the Caribbean to be, but unfortunately the Wi-Fi here at the hotel is too slow for us to upload videos for you guys. We are powering through the next few days with photo breakdowns of the workouts and then we will be posting our workout videos once we get back home.
We are in a great position to be in the best shape of our lives for the summer. If you are feeling uncomfortable in your own skin and have spent summer after summer sitting on the sidelines and not enjoying everything that the warm weather has to offer then get on board with our 30 day challenge and give it a go. There is nothing worse than that feeling of selling yourself short and telling yourself that maybe next year will be different. Life is best lived in the present moment – not sometime next year when you get around to it. Why don’t you join in? We are here right now to help you in anyway that we can – everything about the BodyRock movement is free and open to everyone, and the global community of BodyRockers support and encourage each other in every way
Here are some pictures of what it looks like here and of today’s workout:
Our rooms overlook the main pool area. Each area in the Beaches resort has it’s own theme. We are staying in the “Italian Village”. Do you remember the where’s Waldo books? Can you spot Lisa-Marie BodyRocking somewhere in this picture? (Hint: she is doing an abs exercise).
This was our first full day here, and after sleeping off our travel until mid-morning we got up and headed down to the pool area.
There are plenty of clean eating options here at the resort for BodyRockers and it’s all inclusive so we have been nibbling at everything If you guys want to see the best possible results then make sure that you are following along with our Diet Challenge that Lisa has been posting on her facebook page here. If you BodyRock and follow our simple clean eating approach to food you will see amazing results much faster.

and press yourself back up.
Modification Tricep Press for Beginners:
Starting on your knees, place your hands shoulder width apart. Slowly bend your elbows and lower yourself towards the BodyRock . You can do this exercise standing off of a wall or kneeling in front of your sofa or coffee table. Just make sure that you use a stable platform.
Push off the BodyRock engaging your core and triceps and push yourself back up into the starting position.
Exploding Upright Row
Get into the pushup position with your hands on the Pink Sandbag
Perform a half burpee bringing your legs up towards the bag.
Grabbing the in the middle strap row the sandbag up to shoulder height level. If you don’t have a sandbag then you can use some kind of alternate weight (get creative) or you can either do it with bodyweight only or swap out this exercise for Burpees.
Reverse Pull Up
Get yourself into the starting position. Make sure that your back is straight and you are not dropping your butt down. The further you extend your legs the harder this exercise becomes. I am in the beginner posture above with my feet planted under me knees and the weight of my legs in my heels.
Hold your core tight and pull yourself up. Control the movement on the way down – don’t just drop back into the starting position. If you need to take a break then do so – but don’t compromise form for speed. This is a tough exercise, but it is great for the back and core.
