Glass Slipper Camp – Merida

I love how much you guys are loving the Glass Slipper Camp series! Its so satisfying knowing that something I put a lot of work into and had a lot of fun creating is really being appreciated, so thank you all!

This month we’re gonna be shooting for our own hands in honour of our favourite fiery redhead princess, that’s right, its Merida month and we’re focusing on strong arms!

You can do these exercises with weights, or they all work really well with a resistance band! I recommend starting with 3 sets of 10-15 reps, but see how you get on and do whatever you feel comfortable with!

Pull the Bow

Load up your bow, aim and pull that arrow back! Keep your chest up and tuck your hips forward to keep the core engaged.

Bicep Curls

Work those upper arms and build strength in those bear-ceps!

Quiver Pulls

Get ready to reload! Be sure to support your weight-bearing arm with the other.

Shoulder Press

Show how much stronger you are than those pesky clan first-borns, and be sure to touch the sky as you push up!

Tricep Kickbacks

Feet together, knees bent and butt out! Push those weights back and be sure to control them on the way back.

Now you’ve toned up your arms, will you be changing your fate?

PLUS this month comes with another discount code! Using ‘FATE30’ to save 30% on all orders at The Happiest Fitness Co  – valid until June 30th!

Glass Slipper Camp – Mulan

As voted by you, this month’s installment of Glass Slipper Camp features our favourite warrior princess, Mulan!

Are you ready to get down to business?!

This is a great workout do at home home as you don’t need any equipment! Try starting out with 3 sets of 15-20 reps.

Sumo Squats

Defeat those buns with this wide squat that also works your inner thighs.

Lunge Kickbacks

This variation on a classic lunge gets your stability muscles working and also activates your glutes as you kick backwards.

Knee Chop

As well as stretching your legs, this doubles as an ab-crunch!

Glute Kickbacks

Try to keep your upper body still and focus on keeping your glutes tight as you lift your leg back. Push your hands together to work your arms at the same time

Squat Kicks

Another twist on a classic! Squat nice and low, then keep your leg straight as you kick it up, working those stability muscles and the sides of your core.

Glass Slipper Camp – Rapunzel

Its time for another installment of Glass Slipper camp, yay!

I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone’s support for the first post, making it one of my most viewed posts of the year already – I’m just so happy you guys are loving this series as much as I am!

This week’s princess inspiration is my personal favourite – the lost princess herself – Rapunzel, and it ties in to The Happiest Fitness Co’s new collection which is available for pre-order now here!

Right, frying pans at the ready! I used a weighted medicine ball for this, but you can use whatever equipment you fancy (including frying pans), or none at all. If you want to work without a weight, I’d recommend 5 sets of 20 reps, or 3 sets of 15 with a weight – but see how you feel!

Toe Touches

7am, the usual morning line up.. Kick off this workout with a stretch that works your whole body!

Overhead Frying Pan Extension

Get those arms strong to protect yourself against any ruffians and thugs. Engage your core by pushing your hips forward and tucking in your bum, and try and get a full arm extension as you push back up.

Frying Pan Swipes

Keep your hips facing forward, and use your upper body to swing that ball (or pan!) from side to side. Keep your chest up and your arms locked out for maximum effect.

Lift the Lantern

Lock your arms out and lift that lantern up to the sky, working your back, butt and core at the same time

Crowning the Lost Princess

Finish your first round by making yourself a workout queen! Try to keep your elbows forward, and slow down the movement for maximum effect.

BEST WORKOUT EVER!

Love the Who Knew raglan from THFC? Its available for just £17.50 until the 31st – don’t miss out, pre order here!

Glass Slipper Camp – Cinderella

HEY GUYS!

If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you may have noticed me dropping hints about a secret project that I’ve been working on, AND THIS IS IT YA’LL.

Glass Slipper Camp

Its a new fitness series, and its inspired by the Glass Slipper Camp tank top from The Happiest Fitness Co, so naturally, its princess inspired!

Each month, I’ll be sharing a new workout, each one inspired by a different Disney princess, consisting of 5 moves. There’ll be a mixture of workouts, from HIIT to kettlebells, but the majority will be simple but effective exercises, which can be done with or without the use of weights.

As she is the inspiration for the tank top, I’ll be kicking off the series with a Cinderella inspired workout! Be prepared to work those legs as we’ll be needing them to run away from the ball at midnight! I recommend 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps.
