A Little Monday ABsiration
This weekend I gave you 20 Tummy Tighteners (and you guys added over 180 comments full of your favorite ab exercises for my Designer Whey contest (results coming soon!), so I decided I would start the week off with some ABilicious motivation to get you ready to put some of these exercises to practice this week!
They always say a picture is worth a thousand words. However, as I showed you in my recent blog “Celebrity Bodies: Perfectly Photographed or Perfectly Normal“, many of the photos we see are not “real” – or a true realistic goal for everyday life. So, instead of showing you some perfectly photographed (and photoshopped) abs, I decided to search for the real deal – action shots from some of our favorite celebrities, when they aren’t dieting down and posing for the camera.
When I was creeping the internet for some celebrity “ABspiration”, I couldn’t help but notice all the chicks rockin’ great abs were rock stars. These super fit female singers, rappers, producers and musicians are great motivation for putting some of those ab exercises to work. Soak it in! (and notice their ages – which range from 28-55!)
8 Girl Rockers with Rockin’ Abs
#1 Spice Girl, Melanie Brown, Spices her abs up the best at 38!
#2 Shakira’s hips don’t lie, they say Shakira works out at 36!
#3 The ABsolutely amazing Pink shows off her abs on stage at 34.
#4 Super lean and fit Jada Pinkett Smith has a smoking hot bikini body at 42.
#5 Fit in her forties, Gwen Stefani, stays lean and healthy at 44.
#6 This new photo of Jennifer Lopez went viral after her stylist posted (just the tummy portion) on Instagram on Sept. 26 , showing off her new tone midsection at 44.
#7 Many younger celebs are just skinny and un-tone, but Ciara looks like she works to stay fit at 28.
#8 There’s a reason our Material Girl doesn’t wear that much material – she has no fat to hide at 55!
Who’s Your Body Model?
I think it’s great to have role models (or body models) to look up to. Some people’s body model is you at a younger fit age, and that’s great too. Goals are always helpful – and having a person who has achieved the goal you want to achieve, at YOUR age, with YOUR same number of kids or YOUR excuses, is even better.
Who is your favorite fit celeb?
Do you have a body model?
Who is she? I’d love to know!
