CULTIVATING YOU: My Favorite Workouts and Healthy Meals, Maabena Antwi, Fitvolution Ghana


ON FITNESS AND WORKING OUT

                                                    



We are excited to have one of our Bosschiques, Maabena sharing some of her favorite workouts with us! Maabena is Founder of Fitvolution Ghana

We are guided by Passion, Integrity and the urgency to educate (women between the ages of ) about lifestyle diseases acquired through traditionally accepted practices and inactivity. We enjoyed having you as a guest and we hope to have you back Maabena! 


Hello good people! I wanted to share some of my favorite workouts and meal to you all! Especially because we know we can always use a good pick me up even when we fall off our healthy lifestyles!

Here is the thing with schedules, it gets so crazy that your alarm clock isn’t even effective enough anymore to keep you on track! Busy schedules make our intentions parallel with our directions, our daily activities eventually do not give way for us to achieve the goals we set out to achieve.

This is exactly what happens with most women who are unable to achieve their fitness goals. It is so easy to slip off your exercise routine after a few weeks of initial dedication, unless intentional discipline is ensured. Our fitness goals become more attainable when easy, yet effective routines are chosen (the kind that can be done anywhere and is absolutely DIY).
 My favourite home workouts are those ones I can do anywhere, without any equipments whatsoever;

1. PLANKS
The plank is one of the most effective exercises one could ever consider for loosing creeping inches in the midsection (works abs and entire core muscles).
Planks can be done as a challenge for a period of say 30days, increasing numbers day after day, or could be included in a routine made up of other exercises. See exercise videos for examples of planks! 


2. SQUATS
If asked to choose one exercise of the many, my choice will be Squats, any day!
Squats are an excellent exercise for training the lower body and core muscles, if done regularly they help to define thighs and buttocks. You can do squats anywhere as you are only using your body weight. They can improve circulation, posture, digestion and are a low impact exercise that almost anybody can do.
   
3. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS
 Mountain Climbers are great total body exercise, so by engaging more muscles you burn more calories. And the best part is that, they can be performed anywhere.
You will be utilizing your core because you begin from a plank position, your shoulders have to hold your upper body, your triceps work isometrically to keep you in place and then you will be moving your legs-so some work also in the hip joint. And also because you are doing them quickly, it becomes a cardiovascular type of movement.
    



ON HEALTH AND NUTRITION 

1. NOW LETS TALK ABOUT EGGS!
I am intrigued about eggs because I just started eating them (now just fried, will gather courage for boiled soon).  Long story, later!
Eggs are the original fast food, making breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Just add a bowl of lightly dressed salad greens and you have a meal.

Here’s best ways to prepare these low-cal (just 78calories per), high protein nutrition powerhouse.
BOILED, SCRAMBLED and as an OMELET.


2. SMOOTHIES
My favorite green smoothy recipe has to be the following ingredients; 

  1. Mango
  2. Banana
  3. Dandelion
  4. Groundnut, creamed up with water!

Healthy eating is so much fun stuff than uncool…you want an all out summer? Then get working now! Get the body you dream with these easy to do anywhere workouts and awesome food choices!
Happy Summer ahead!
