Try this routine three times a week- you won’t believe the big-time toning payoff you’ll get from these tiny moves.
1. To tone your triceps, sit on your butt with legs hip-distance apart. Then flex your feet and place your palms directly under your shoulders, fingers facing forward. Squeeze your butt and hover your seat over the floor.
2. Bend your elbows, and then press up to straighten your arms. (Make it harder by lifting hips up into a bridge.) Repeat this bend-and-extend move for 1 minute.
TIP: You’ll get stronger toned arms with this move!
Invisible Chair Sits:
1. For a lower-bod blaster, sit against the wall, hips in line with knees as if you’re seated in a chair. Stretch arms in front of you and pull abs in and out as you inhale and exhale. Repeat for 30 seconds.
2. Make the move harder by raising your arms as you exhale, then lowering as you inhale. Repeat for another 30 to 60 seconds.
TIP: Keep your shoulder blades flat against the wall.
1. Kneel on the floor, balancing fingertips lightly on the back of a chair.
2. Step your right foot forward in a lunge, then lift your left knee slightly above the ground. Pull in abs and pulse up and down for 1 minute. Switch legs and repeat.
TIP: This move works your butt and thighs.
1. For killer abs start by sitting with knees bend, feet hip-distance apart. Lean back and prop yourself up on your elbows.
2. Tuck your pelvis in. extend your right leg in front of you, and with every exhale, pulse it toward your chest, keeping your abs pulled in.
3. Up for a major challenge? Extend your left leg and hold it a few inches above the floor. Hold for 30 to 45 seconds, then scissor kick and repeat with your left leg high in the air.
Thanks guys for getting me well over 4,300 followers! I can’t believe how quickly this blog is growing. And to think I just randomly started this thinking if only I got one follower I would of been happy.
Hope you all enjoy your Sunday and don’t forget to get in some exericse unless like me it’s your “rest day”. Well see if that actually happens. Love all my fitness freaks!
1. Journal or Blog. Keeping track of everything you do makes you accountable for your actions. The advantage of blogging is that other people can see it, so they can call you out if you’re not doing what you’re supposed to or help support you.
2. Stay Positive. If you’re an optimist, you will be hopeful. Having hope for yourself will drive you to accomplish your goals because you will actually think that they’re possible.
3. Be Consistent. If you commit and make a schedule, things such as exercise –which isn’t always fun for people –will become a habit. Make it a habit and motivation will come easy to you.
4. Track Your Progress. When you can look back and see how much you’ve improved, you get an instant confidence boost! Even if your progress is slow or you’ve regressed, you can evaluate what went wrong and work to fix it!
5. Remember. When you’re lacking motivation, think of the things that inspire you. Whether it’s a song, a quote, or just knowing that you’re not the only person who has it hard can help you chin up and get through it! Try making an inspirational collage or poster and hang it up in a place you’ll see often.
