The Pretty Committee: Push It to the Limit

Hey beauties! Who works out? I'm raising my hand and I know that without the right music, working is a SNORE! Even if you do pilates, cardio-exercises music is always important to have. With the right kind of music it actually helps! Here's a list of some tunes that will get you through your tough work outs:

Yeah 3x – Chris Brown
Rocketeer – Far East Movement and Ryan Tedder
Forget You – Cee Lo Green
Bass Down Low – Dev & The Cataracs
1000 Miles – Blake Lewis
True To Me – Metro Station
Secret Valentine – We The Kings
PYT – Michael Jackson
Kids – MGMT
Tessellate – Tokyo Police Club

Do you want to get in shape but don't know how? Here's two exercises you could do every morning:
The Triceps Dip
Start: Sit on a bench and grip the edge of the seat with both hands on either side of your butt. Hold your arms straight but not locked. Keep feet flat and knees bent. Walk your feet slightly forward, contract your abs and lift your butt so your hips are level with the front of the seat.
Finish: Supporting yourself with your hands, slowly lower your butt until your upper arms are almost parallel to the floor (elbows and shoulders will be bent at a 45- to 90-degree angle). Push yourself back up to the straight-arm position and repeat for a total of 12 times.

The Concentration Curl
Start: Sit on a bench or chair with your knees bent and feet separated shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell in your left hand and lean slightly forward from your hips. Let your arm hang down in line with your shoulder, palm facing in. place your right hand on your right thigh for support.
Finish: Exhale and bend your left elbow to curl the dumbbell toward your left shoulder. Slowly lower and repeat 12 times. Switch arms and do another 12 reps. (Because your biceps are so strong, make sure the weight you use is heavy enough to fatigue your muscles.)

Good Luck!
