#birthdayeve #birthdaygirl #birthstone #coffee #coffeeholic Here are two variations of unilateral lat pull downs. 1– using a cable (can sit or kneel) and 2- using a hammer strength machine (I’m sitting in it sideways 😏) 💪🏾💪🏾 #fittip - I always incorporate single arm and single leg exercises in my workouts whenever possible. .

I am sooo obsessed with even perfect skin and I’m always looking for a product to help me achieve that. 
Fifteen years ago I became a licensed esthetician (skin care specialist) so you would think my skin would be flawless ALL the time— nope 👎🏾 I suffer from random breakouts (in fact right now) and I do my best to treat them. I get regular facials, I exfoliate, drink water, keep my face clean, eat clean and try to limit wearing makeup during the week... but it doesn’t always seem like enough. 
I’ve recently been asked to partner with Fré Skin Care and have been using all three products (facial cleanser, replenishing serum and moisturizer with spf) in the 123Fré line for about a week now and so far I and my skin love it all. 
Since visiting Morocco earlier this year and learning about Argan and the process of extracting Argan oil I’ve wanted to incorporate more of it on my daily life. I was excited to learn that Fré is made of a unique blend of organic Argan oil, Argan leaf water extract and Argan stem cells. Not only is Fré vegan, cruelty free, hypoallergenic and smells ahhhmazing.... with every kit sold, an Argan tree is planted to empower women who harvest Argan in Morocco and fight deforestation.❤️ I would love for you to try it for yourself use my code FITGIRLNIKKI25 for 25% off your 3 month kit (valid for the next 48 hours only).

Hovering Hip Abduction!!

Hey Goal Diggers!

Thought I’d share one of my favorite glute exercises in honor of hump day!! Lol

Introducing… The hovering hip abduction!!
Most gyms have this machine and if you’re lucky it faces a wall lol here we go…

Step 1 Get in there!
Step 2 Choose a heavy weight! I find you can go much heavier than you would in the traditional seated method. Start out light and work your way up if you aren’t sure where to start.
Step 3 Stand up, drop it low and get to work!! Keep your back straight (not hunched), core tight and focus on using only your glutes and legs to move the weight. I typically do 3 sets of 12 or more using the whole stack, but start off light and work your way up. I brace myself by holding onto the sides of the machine.
Step 4 Feel the burn!! (_|_) lolol

For more glute/leg videos, visit my exercise library!

The hip abduction focuses on the muscles of the outer thigh and standing in a squatting position engages more of the gluteus medius and hip abductors (muscles on the side of your booty that move your legs outward) 🙂 Enjoy!!
