Liquid Lithe Week!

It's almost 2013!  Get a fresh start on the new year with our Liquid Lithe.  From December 31st-January 4th, all studios will be stocked with our fresh, cold-pressed juices and smoothies.  We'll be running a Liquid Lithe Special:  Purchase 6 juices/smoothies for $35!

I've always said that our workouts truly demand more than juice.  So, while I don't think that juice fasts or cleanses should be an every day part of healthy, Lithe-friendly eating, I have personally benefited from a day or two of all (or nearly all) liquids. 

Follow the diagram above, or piece together your own Liquid Lithe.  Here are my three current favorite line-ups that all fall within the 1,200-1,560 calorie range (with an additional kale, or green salad added in) as example:

#1 ("breakfast"):  Lithe Latte
#2 ("morning boost"):  Lithe Greenie
#3 ("lunch"):  Basic Green Smoothie
#4 ("afternoon boost"):  Lithe Greenie
#5 ("dinner"):  Horchata + Green Salad
#6 ("dessert"):  Lithe Bunny Detox

Or, this:
#1 ("breakfast"):  Chai Tea Latte
#2 ("morning boost"):  Lithe Greenie
#3 ("lunch"):  Greenest Smoothie
#4 ("afternoon boost"):  Lithe Greenie
#5 ("dinner"):  Thinny Mint Shake  + Green Salad
#6 ("dessert"):  Apple & Ginger (BFF)

Or, this:
#1 ("breakfast"):  Greenest Smoothie
#2 ("morning boost"):  Greenie
#3 ("lunch"):  Basic Green Smoothie
#4 ("afternoon boost"):  Lithe Greenie
#5 ("dinner"):  Lithe Bunny Detox  + Green Salad
#6 ("dessert"):  Apple & Ginger (BFF)

Please keep in mind that our Lithe workouts are intense, and if you are going mostly green, or all liquid (or all juice), you can, and should drink plenty of water and add in additional detox friendly foods like: avocado, fruit, veggies, salad, clear soup and nuts like almonds to your day(s).  There is nothing wrong with supplementing!  Have any questions?  Email us at lithefoods@lithemethod.com

DECEMBER 23 & 24: TOE TOUCH! 23 Dec 2012


We do so many variations of this cheer inspired move at Lithe.   If you haven't tried this killer ab move with me in Weightless, give it a shot at home (it's a bit tougher to do without our band system, so don't fret if you're having trouble flexing up at first). Lying supine, with abs imprinted and body weight situated on the backs of sitz-bones, shoulders sliding down and chin tilted:

Try it:

(a) Inhale and draw knees into chest as you press ball into shins.

(b) Exhale to engage abs, roll up to the backs of the sitz-bones as you simultaneously open legs into a toe touch and press ball into right shin. Left arm will hit a sharp “High V.”  Repeat left.

DECEMBER 21 & 22: TAP & LIFT! 22 Dec 2012


Whether you're at the bands, barre, tall box, blue box, or on the mat, you'll be tapping and lifting a few times a week at Lithe.  Not only does this move increase your range of motion, but it challenges your lateral musculature.  Body will be folder over, standing leg is slightly bent with weight in the heel, hips are open laterally, chin tilted and shoulders sliding down.

Try it:

(a) Breathe in and lower leg towards the ground.

(b) Exhale, to extend left leg from outer hip and thigh.

APPLE & GINGER (BFF)! 21 Dec 2012


We love our cold-pressed Fall Tonic so much that we've re-named it and relinquished its "chef special" status.  Apple and Ginger go together so well that I think they are officially BFF's (and your body's BFF, to boot).  Starting this week you'll see it in-studio often!
