i was born this way

I don't know WHAT is going on with Blogger lately, but I've tried to comment on several of your blogs & it's just not letting me!

Whether you're a Lady Gaga fan or not...I thought that this was interesting & wanted to share it with you.

FitSugar posted a workout based around Lady Gaga's music.


yes, i was born this way. out of the womb with leather on.

Here's some excerpts:
Abs
After keeping pace with Gaga's hottest tunes, it's time to hit the floor. Since the outrageous dresser tends to show off her flat abs, we'll start with some tummy toners (but we'll skip the crunches, thank you very much!). If you can wait out the 40-second intro, "Government Hooker" has a beat that's just made for repetitive moves. Try Gwyneth Paltrow's waist-whittler, courtesy of trainer Tracy Anderson: Lie faceup with legs extended. Roll onto left side and extend left arm in front of you, right arm across torso, fingertips to floor for support. Lift left (bottom) leg and cross left leg over right. Keep right foot pointed and heel on floor the entire time. Do 15 reps. To target the lower abs, try the modified hundred: Lie faceup, legs raised, knees bent 90 degrees. Inhale, then exhale, lifting head and shoulders off mat, arms extended at shoulder height, palms down. Inhale as you pump arms up and down five times, then exhale and pump five more times. Do 10 times, for 100 pumps. Repeat both moves for the duration of the song.

Legs

Don't worry — we haven't forgotten about your legs (Gaga's always seem a mile long in her leotards). The singer used ballet-inspired moves in her video for "Born This Way," so we're going to go with a couple dance moves during "Bad Kids." First, the leg circle: Stand with back of chair to your left, heels together, toes turned out. Hold chair with left hand; reach right arm overhead; extend right leg to side at hip level, toes pointed. With hips stable, trace 10 tiny circles clockwise, then 10 the other way. Switch sides; repeat. For bonus calf firming, do move on ball of standing foot. Next, a classic releve: Stand on right leg, toes turned out, left foot resting on right calf. Raise arms overhead, elbows slightly bent; contract abs and lift right heel off floor, coming onto ball of foot. Lower heel for one rep. Do 10 reps slowly, then 20 reps quickly. Switch sides; repeat. Repeat both moves for the duration of the song.

I was super excited about The Biggest Loser, everyone looked awesome and lost a ton of weight and Olivia won, which is who I picked originally, that girl is a force to be reckoned with!

I love that there is a GAGA based workout, awesome!
I watched the last 10 minutes of Biggest Loser and wasn't that thrilled, didn't watch much of it this year so I barely know who anyone is!
