Hi my name is Lisa Gaylord. I'm a personal trainer with LisaGaylord.com. I'm here at Metropolis Fitness in Miami, Florida. In this clip I'm going to show you how to lose weight around the chest area, and you will need a mat. What we want to think about is certain movements that are going to build the chest muscles and shoulders. So, the first thing I want you to do is arms out to the side. This seems simple, simple, simple but it works. It is very effective. Think of the distance of a dinner plate and draw your hands in a circle. What I'm going to do is place my thumbs forward and almost slightly down. So I'm pushing forward and pushing back at the same time. Now in this pace it's very simple but watch what I'm going to do. I'm going to pick up the pace a little bit and you want to stay grounded in your feet, nice and relaxed right in here. Pull your belly in and big circles as fast as you can. I want you to watch a stop clock if you can. Watch this second hand for a 30 second interval, shake them out and then we're going to go to the ground. On the ground we're going to do a simple basic push-up. So if you've never done this before, you want to start on your knees. This is going to be called the modified, watch my body in a tabletop. So from here my head is in neutral alignment. Don't start with your neck down. I want you to take your whole body to the ground. Drop, breathe in, push, breathe out. I will do a set of ten of those, and then once we finish our set of ten, I want you to shake it off, come right back up, arms out to the side, watch your stop clock, same thing. Circles around and then as fast as you can in thirty seconds, and I want you to do this interval at least three times. So it's circles with your hands, ten push-ups to the ground. Make sure that when you're going from a standing to a sitting position, from the up to down, take your time, walk it through. That's how we're going to lose weight, chest muscles. This is Lisa Gaylord. Thank you for watching.
