#MovingTogether: Your Long-Weekend Workout with Dara Hart

#MovingTogether: Your Long-Weekend Workout with Dara Hart

The DogPound  founding trainer and all-around amazing creature is back to HIIT you with some new routines to pepper into your weekend.

Full-body knockout! Dara’s high intensity interval workout targets the whole body, focusing on explosive power, mobility, balance and core. Repeat each routine 1 – 3 times for maximum satisfaction. 

Bound Burpees 

10 x each way. Alternate direction of turnaround.

Stand hip-width distance apart, bend knees, swing arms and explosively bound as far forward as possible. Land with soft knees and immediately reach for the ground to find a plank into a burpee. As you stand, jack squat to turn around.
 
 

Alt Squat Lunge Tuck 

10 x tucks and lunges each way. Option to step back instead of jump.

Jump from a squat to a right reverse lunge, squat to a left reverse lunge, squat to prepare a plyometric tuck jump, pulling knees as high towards the chest as possible. To modify, step into each squat-lunge, and march alternate knees to the chest. Drive through the heels and keep the chest lifted.
 

 

Side Hop Roundhouse

10 x each way. Slow and controlled kick to challenge balance.

Side hop to extend the leg along side you, reach the opposite hand to touch the ground, allowing a bend in the supporting leg. Alternate 3 times through. On the third side hop, glide the extended leg into a fan kick/roundhouse. Move with control, and engage the core.
 
 

Jack Plank Walk

10 x each way. Alternate leading arm and keep feet wide for hip stability .

Beginning in a plank, hands under the shoulders, jack the feet out and in. Leading with the right arm, walk the arms down into a forearm plank and perform 1 jack with the legs. Replacing the elbows with the hands, climb the arms back up into plank, jack the legs. Repeat with the left arm leading the movement. Make sure to tighten the legs, stay high on the toes and squeeze the glutes to protect the lower back.
 

 

MMA Crunch

20 crunches total, 10 x alternating elbow slice.

Lay on your back, and extend the legs straight out, a few inches of the ground. Sit up and crunch legs bent at 90 degrees, shins parallel to the ground. Hold this position and elbow strike towards the right side, twisting through the obliques, keeping the legs tight and hips stable. Lower back towards the ground and extend the legs to hover. Alternate the elbow strike to the left and right between each rep.
 

 

Cobra Press Push Up 

10 reps each (10 cobras, 10 tricep push ups). Option to modify on the knees.

Begin in a plank position, hands under the shoulders legs glued together, high on the tip toes, perform a triceps push up. Walk hands out as far forward as possible, slowly, with control, keeping the elbows in, lower the forearms to the ground. Press back into the palms, firing through the triceps to straighten the arms. Walk the hands back to starting position, perform a triceps push up. Make sure to keep the glutes tight and slightly pull the tailbone down and under to protect the lower back. This is a challenging exercise! Modify by keeping the knees on the ground.

We’re Obsessed: Ere Perez’s Superfood-Infused Skincare and Makeup

We’re Obsessed: Ere Perez’s Superfood-Infused Skincare and Makeup

Way before it become a #trend, Ere Perez was bottling botanical cheek tints and healing elixirs in her native Mexico. Now, her sophisticated range has finally landed in the U.S., and she’s giving us an inside glimpse into how it all came to be.

Superfood-infused beauty products might be everywhere at the moment, but Ere Perez has been mixing up vitamin-infused remedies since she was a child. The Mexico-born skin-care and makeup founder grew up watching her grandfather — a local medicine man — concoct plant remedies and her mother taught her to rub beetroot on her cheeks as a natural spin on blush. All that good training inspired Perez to launch her own line, which she did shortly after settling in another botanical-rich destination, Australia.

Perez’s brand of vegan, antioxidant-packed essentials — everything from foundation spiked with inflammation-calming quinoa to strengthening almond-oil mascara to her now cult-favorite beetroot cheek and lip tint — have freshly arrived on our shores. Here, Perez takes us inside her dreamy wellness world and shares her creation process.

Where did your interest in beauty come from?

“I grew up in Monterrey, a beautiful place in northern Mexico. I was always interested in natural remedies from my grandfather, who was a medicine man. Also my grandmother was so good at reusing everything — nothing went to waste! Their whole life was like a wellness dream! My grandmother is still alive, at 98 years old and still making dresses for my girls! On the other side of my family, my grandparents were chemists who had a laboratory. I was born surrounded by incredible energy and a warm family.”

What kinds of beauty products did you use in Mexico?

“I used beetroot on my face, as my mom did not want me to use chemicals. There was no natural makeup available when I was growing up. It really didn’t exist yet.”

What inspired you to launch your line, and move to Australia?

“Ere Perez came from my dream of combining natural health with beauty. I knew how many toxins were in traditional makeup and I wanted to give women a healthy alternative. I have sensitive eyes and can’t live without mascara—I look sleepy! So it was actual need for me. I followed love to Australia, when my fiancé moved from Mexico. I studied natural therapies before I moved and have a degree on nutrition — which is why each of our products has a beautiful edible hero ingredient.”

Where do you the source your natural ingredients?

 “Our ingredients come mainly from plants all over the world. We are proud to use Australian native ingredients such as quandong and blue cypress in our botanical skincare. We create natural formulations that are safe and have the performance and beautiful texture that any mainstream chemical brand can offer.”

Talk us through what’s special about the Ere Perez products we have in stock at Free People.

“The Quandong Green Booster is a serum and green smoothie for the face, full of superfoods. The Quinoa Water Foundation is a lightweight foundation and perfect for every day. The Beetroot Cheek & Lip Tints deliver vibrant long-lasting color and they even last through sports (yoga, swimming!).

The Natural Almond Mascara launched our range 13 years ago — it smells amazing, is good for sensitive eyes, and has become our most loved product. The Avocado Waterproof Mascara is one of the only natural waterproof mascaras on the market and the Aloe Gel Lash & Brow Mascara is so good for taming eye brows as well as giving shine to lashes (it’s also a night treatment for lashes).”

Do you have a favorite or product that you constantly reach for?

“That’s such a hard choice; I love them all! But I wear the Almond Mascara every day. It’s my go-to… I have one in my handbag, another in the car. It always comes to the rescue when I need to quickly give my face a boost. My lashes are long but straight, so has a good curling effect, too!”

How do you practice self-care when life is so busy?

 “Life can be busy, that’s for sure. I am the creative director of our brand, plus a mom to three gorgeous and fun children. For me, I make sure I eat healthy, balanced, clean food and get out into the fresh air. I’m learning not to sweat the small stuff. You can’t make a big deal over everything in life; it’s not worth the stress.”

What’s the best makeup trick you’ve learned over the years?

“Definitely that less is more. I remember when the fashion was to wear thick layers of foundation, to cover over skin and make everything look false. Thank goodness trends have changed. These days, it’s about allowing natural radiance and healthy beauty. One of my best tricks is to smile and dab a little tint on my cheeks—it really brings youth.”
