INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Put about an inch of water in the bottom of a small pan and turn on medium heat.
  2. Place a small (pint size or smaller) jar in the water, being careful not to get any water inside the jar.
  3. Place all ingredients except the essential oils inside the glass jar, stir continually and slowly melt.
  4. Turn off the heat but leave the jar in the water to keep it warm.
  5. Wait until you can touch the side of the jar for about 10 sec., then it will be safe to add in the essential oils. Use glass droppers to quickly fill the containers.
  6. Let the lip balm set over night to completely harden.
  7. Store in a cool, dry place.  They will last for at least a year if stored correctly!
  8. Enjoy!!!!
  • This recipe will make a firm lip chap.  If you prefer a firmer and longer lasting product, you can add more beeswax, up to double the recommended amount.  If you prefer a smoother and more oily texture, reduce the amount of beeswax.
  • The measurements we used will make about 18 tubes of lip balm.

Now take a look at our Youtube Tutorial to see how we did it!

TYE4 HIIT PLYO WORKOUT VIDEO

BeFunky_Screen Shot TYE4HIIT.jpg

 ♥ LOVE ♥ LOVE ♥ LOVE ♥

Wearing Tye4 while doing jump training is a smart idea.  First, it allows you to jump against resistance, which〈oh my gosh〉makes it harder.  LOTS and LOTS of muscle burn and isolation will occur = greater intensity.  Second, it reduces stress on the joints!  It’s like landing on a trampoline.  This is great news for me considering I have “old knees” and “can’t do jump training anymore without causing terrible inflammation”  I have yet to have an issue after training in the Tye4.

FOR ME, TYE4 MEANS MOVEMENT FREEDOM ♥

HERE ARE THE EXERCISES I PERFORM IN THIS VIDEO…

JUMP SQUATS full movement – touch the ground, then reach as high as you can at the top while jumping.  Don’t cheat here.  Reach the arms high as your back lengthens while in the air.   Modify: touch knees rather than the ground, and eliminate the jump part, just reaching up with the arms.  This is still a great exercise!

JUMPING JACKS  3 variations

  1. standard jack- you will feel this in the upper body b/c the arm bungees creates resistance
  2. triangle jack- no arms, hold leg bungees triangled out to the side, creating resistance for the adductor muscles —» inner thigh
  3. crossed jack- hold leg bungees crossed in front to create resistance for the abductor muscles —» outer thigh

ROTATION JUMP  3 variations

  1. slalom jump – jump right → front → left → front
  2. 90º jump – jump facing back, then back to the front
  3. 360º jump – full turn

SQUAT TRIPPLE TAP JUMP   facing right → squat → tap ground 3x → jump turning to the left.

  • This workout has 8 SETS, each containing 2 EXERCISES that will be repeated 2x.
  • 40 seconds ACTIVE
  • 15 seconds ACTIVE REST
  • Wear your Tye4 to ↑ intensity (the sweat factor!) and reduce stress on the joints.
  • Hold leg bungees when doing the 15 second ACTIVE REST part
  • I’m recommending how to use Tye4, but keep in mind you can always ↓ upper body resistance by moving 1 or both hands from loop 1 (closer loop) to loop 2 (outside loop) for a quick change up.

TYE4 HIIT 1 DEMO

HIIT1.jpg

HIIT – high intensity interval training – is definitely trending in 2015 in the world of fitness.  I love this workout and I’ve been loving it even more since I started using Tye4.  The resistance of the bungees takes this workout to a NEW LEVEL… because in does increase intensity… and isn’t that the point of this kind of workout???  My heart rate increases 10-20 beats per minute on EVERY exercise!!!  AND… it removes the stress that high intensity exercises can cause on the joints.  It adds just enough stability to clean up the move and allow for some MAJOR MUSCLE ISOLATION!  I mean, really.  WIN WIN.

PILATES USING TYE4 DEMO 2

Screen Shot 2015-02-13 at 11.47.55 AM

The Pilates exercises in this demo are fantastic, but there are a few problems:

  1. 1. The hip flexors may be over used or stressed
  2. 2.  The abdominals fatigue and the lower back arches which can cause injury
  3. 3. It’s easy to strain the neck in this flexed position.  And it’s just really uncomfortable for many people.

So I got really excited in class today as we found a way to use Tye4 to take care of every one of those issues!!!  The bungee variation I use in this demo assist the hip flexors allowing for a greater abdominal contraction which gives support to the lower back.  Now the hands are freed now to give support to the neck!

BUNGEE VARIATION  I’ve wrapped the leg bungees around the outside of my arms.

PILATES SEQUENCE

  • Double Leg Lower Lift
  • Scissor Kick
  • Alternating Leg Press
  • Mountain Climber

PILATES USING TYE4® DEMO

Screen Shot 2015-02-11 at 5.49.58 PM

 

The Tye4® bungees adds resistance to these Pilates exercises – like Reformer Pilates.

EXERCISES IN THIS DEMO

1. DOUBLE LEG LOWER LIFT::  I’m showing the advanced version – holding leg bungees out to the side on the floor.  To modify, hold leg bungees but sit on your hands and squeeze your glutes (squeeze that butt!)

2.  LEG CIRCLES::  Here I’ve pulled the right arm bungee long and put that hand loop on the left foot.  Hold the bungees connected to the foot together or separate them.  Guide the leg in a circle, retracing each time.  5 each direction.  Keep the hips from rocking.

3.  SCISSOR KICK::  This demo shows an advanced variation.  To modify, don’t hold the leg bungees and reach high up on the leg closer to the chest.
