Tuesday Shoesday: MGemi Marea Lace Up Heels


Lace Up Heels (code brandon825 for $40 off) | Saddle Bag c/o | Marble iPhone Case | Derby Hat




About the Pieces:
  • Lace Up Heels: These are true to size, but if you're in-between sizes, I'd go a half size up. They are surprisingly comfortable for a heel and lace up style. I'll be wearing them all summer with dresses and rompers. You can get $40 off with code brandon825 [buy here]
  • Saddle Bag: I love this shade of blue! It will go perfect with summer pastels. The size is also practical for both the week and weekend. [buy here]
  • Marble iPhone Case: Is it just me, or is it hard to find cute iPhone 6 Plus cases. I snaggged this one for less than $15. [buy here]
  • Derby Hat: I've had this hat for a while, and I plan to wear it to Gold Cup in a few weeks. Order now if you want yours to arrive in time! It's also great for Polo matches, the beach, and summer picnics. [buy here]

About the Workout:
Per requested, I wanted to share with you my updated fitness routine. I work out 3-5 times a week and will incorporate this work out at least 2 times. It takes about 35 minutes, and it will kick your butt! 

About the Look:
I'm wearing these amazing leggings by Hourglass Angel. They have a lining on the inside that is like a compression short, so they keep you sucked in. They are extremely high-quality and have tremendous value (less than $60). You can use this discount here

Part 1: Warm Up
I start my workout with a 5 minute Tabata set. Tabata gets your heart rate up and is very effective at burning calories. It can burn up to 15 calories per minute
  • 0:00 to 0:20: Sprint in place. 
  • 0:21 to 0:30: Rest
  • 0:31 to 0:50: Burpees
  • Repeat. Do this for 5 minutes total. 

Part 2: Legs 
I do 5 exercises for 20 reps each with heavy weights. 
  • Squats
  • Russian dead-lifts
  • Lunges
  • Jump squats
  • Wall sit
Part 3: Tabata Set #2
I mix in another 5 minute Tabata set. I like to alternate high knees and jumping jacks. 

Part 4: Arms
I do 5 arm exercises for 20 reps with heavy weights. A normal routine will include:
  • Bicep curls (15 pounds)
  • Side raises (8 pounds)
  • Front raises (8 pounds)
  • Tricep curls (15 pounds)
  • Push ups

Part 5: Tabata Set #3
I mix in another 5 minute Tabata set. I will mix in soccer kicks and push ups. 

Part 6: Core
I will do the following moves for core:
  • Plank (1 minute)
  • Plank with a row (20 reps)
  • Sit ups with a 12 pound weight
  • Russian twists (20 reps)
  • Plank (1 minute)
