❗️CHALLENGE MOVE❗️ of the week (volume up) with @candacecbure : (Super Stoked) Band(ed) jump rope 💦🍑. We’re determined to keep you moving with a smile👯♀️. Sending you all virtual high fives for giving this one a try. LET’S GO Stoked Squad! #nevermissamonday #highfivemonday ⭐️Listen for why It’s not just a fun party trick. Tag us in your stories as you work on it and, as always, have fun while trying. ⭐️Implement your new found skill into one of the jump rope circuits in “Jump & Band Burn” or “Jump & Band Burn 2.0” on the #KSFAPP [LINK IN PROFILE] Otherwise – as a goal once you feel comfortable, aim to use the band while jumping for intervals of 2 minutes, then jump without it for 2 minutes, for a total of 12-16 minutes [LINK IN PROFILE] . ⭐️Stoked Bands are sold in the shop on my website but are currently sold out – back in stock mid-August https://shop.kirastokes.com/products/resistance-bands ⭐️Below the knees is (in general) is the correct placement for the band as you want to feel the resistance but not over-do it. The goal is to maintain lateral tension for more glute engagement and and be able to hop the feet a bit wider each time you jump (remember, typically the lower the band placement the more challenging it is to get range during movement – it doesn’t always serve you best to choose the most difficult placement, or band, if you can’t get proper range) ⭐️One of the jump ropes we prefer is the pro-vinyl jump rope sold on @powersystems . I’ve posted tips for jumping rope and why it’s such a great conditioning choice many times, scroll my page👍🏼 . . . #thestokedmethod #stoked #workforit #goals #community #noexcuses #strongwomen #strongertogether #challenge #vacation #beastmode #fitover40 #instafit

Candace revealed she “always enjoyed fitness” since her early 30s, but “never got the results” she wanted until meeting Kira. “It’s a lot of those core moves we all know, but the way she puts them together and the constant flow is a game changer,” she said. While the 44-year-old mother of three is currently in Canada filming two Hallmark movies, she admitted that she brought all of her gym equipment to workout via FaceTime and, sometimes, on her IG Live, with Kira.
“I brought my bands, my ball, everything and then I have my computer and I work out with her every day. And then, we went live Monday mornings on my Instagram, so if people do want to train with me and Kira, you can go on my Instagram and those are still posted,” Candace explained.
“I think everyone can do it though because you can always modify and Kira is so good at calling out instruction and she will tell you how to modify something,” she continued. “You don’t have to use any weights like you can always do things at your pace and your ability. The whole point is to just do something and move your body.”
The Fuller House star revealed her favorite full body workout includes using bands, and she is always trying to give your booty a good lift by doing bridges! “I love bridges, because that really gets your butt and glutes and I have just a flat booty, so I’m always trying to lift it up!” she laughed on the podcast. “I also love gliders that tends to work your core really hard.”
When it comes to staying motivated to workout, especially in quarantine, Candace said that she notices a major difference in her mental health when she gets her endorphins pumping. “When I work out, it gives me energy and it helps me stay positive. So, the motivation to workout isn’t very hard because I want to do it. I crave it because I know how much better I feel when I do it,” she explained. “I always think that just starting is the hardest part. You’ve gotta get back on the wagon, back on the train, and you’ve just got to go do it. And once you’ve worked out consistently for a couple of weeks, you just feel so much better.”
