Benefits of a Dynamic Warm Up
Cold muscle, tendons and connective tissue do not move and respond very
easily. Warming up relaxes the body and muscle which further allows them
to be worked effectively.
It is believed that cold muscles and tendons are more prone to damage since
they are more likely to tear when cold.
A warm-up increases the heart rate gradually and prepares the heart and
A warm-up causes the blood to be diverted to the exercising muscles. This is
achieved by getting the blood vessels that supply the muscles being used, to
Exercising, without warming up, may cause the muscles to work without an
adequate oxygen supply. This forces them to use anaerobic processes to
supplement their production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). As a
consequence, lactic acid accumulates and the muscles may become

form a Y. At the top of the move, pause and squeeze shoulder blades. Slowly lower
arms down to start position and repeat. Perform with control and purpose.
IF: If you lower back tired quickly, you may perform this same move while lying on
a stability ball or over the side of a chair.

3. Hip Bridge

Action: Push out of your heels as you squeeze your glutes and thighs to raise hips
off mat as high as you can. Pause and return to start but lightly tap your bottom to
the mat before squeezing and raising hips again. Be sure your shoulder blades and
head remain on the mat and breathe! Take your time to get the most out of this
move. The goal is to activate your glutes so you get the most out of your lower body
moves in the circuit.
Prisoner Sumo Squat
Starting Position: Position your feet 6-10 inches wider than shoulder-width apart.
Toes pointed out. Hands should be up, finger tips behind your head, elbows pointing
out to the sides and kept wide.

down into the squat until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Keep your back
straight and elbows out. Squeeze your glutes and thighs as you push out of your
heels to return to the start.

forward, walking your legs out until you are lying on the ball, neck and upper back
supported on ball, bottom and lower back are lowered as well.

press DBs straight up above your chest, begin the reverse plank as you squeeze your
glutes and thighs as you raise your hips up and into a reverse plank position. Pause
keeping glutes, thighs and core contracted and return hips and DBs to start.
Be sure to: Keep your core tight and be mindful of the muscle used in both the
chest press (triceps, core and chest) and the reverse plank (glutes and thighs).
Modify: If this move is too difficult, you may choose to perform assisted either at an
incline against a bench/step or on your knees.
Starting Position: Stand in front of a step or bench, one foot planted firmly making
sure entire foot is on bench/chair.
Action: Step up onto the bench/chair squeezing your glutes and thighs and raise
your opposite knee as high as you can. In the same motion, lower this leg to the
floor, tap lightly and step right back up to the top of the move. You will keep the
same foot on the bench/chair the entire time to complete repetitions. If you are
performing timed rounds, alternate your step ups.

Starting Position: Begin in push up position. Wrists are directly under shoulders,
core is tight, body forms a straight line from head to tail bone.
Action: Drive your right knee up towards your chest alternating back and forth
with your left knee in a running motion. Repeat this movement for the required
number of seconds or repetition. Be sure to keep your body aligned and your hips
low. You can choose to tap your toes on the mat or for more of a challenge do not let
them touch at all, allowing for a continuous running movement.
If you follow the 3 days a week schedule you can choose to wrap up your fat loss
workout with a 10-15 minute interval session.
Note –Performing Intervals immediately after body weight workout may vary in
intensity. Keep in mind that the Fit Yummy Mummy Fat Loss workouts incorporate a
cardiovascular component as well. It is perfectly fine to perform a less intense version
of your favorite Interval workout after your body weight circuit. Your body will still be
primed for fat loss.
If you follow the 6 days a week schedule, be sure to allow a day of rest in between
each body weight circuit day to allow for recovery and repair – which equals better
Intermediate: 10 minute session
Work for 30 sec, rest for 30 sec, repeat 10 times.
Advanced: 13 minute session

of Fit Yummy Mummy designed for busy Moms with a limited amount of time to
exercise. Unlike most fitness magazines that think you can devote 60-90 minutes to
exercise each day, I know the demands of being a Mom, and that’s why I created the
short burst Fit Yummy Mummy workout system. Along with my proven meal
planning strategies and tips, you'll not only double your results, but you will also
help your family develop good eating habits with a variety of delicious, nourishing
foods, family-friendly foods.
I am also a mom! This is me and my son, Tyler!
After Tyler was born, pregnancy had taken quite a toll on my body. This was the first
time in my life I had to put true effort into changing the way I looked and how I took
care of myself. I devoted my spare time to learning about proper nutrition and
exercise with the goal of achieving a better version of my pre-baby body. It took a lot
of hard work, patience and determination, but I succeeded. At age 36…going on 37, I
can say without a doubt, that I have never felt this lean, this healthy and this good
about myself, inside and out. This experience dramatically changed my life. Not only
did I discover what it takes to achieve a lean body but I found my passion and a new
career path. It is my mission to educate, motivate and inspire others to achieve their
personal and professional fitness goals.
