For #ExerciseOfTheWeek we have the Crunch Chop. This exercise primarily works the abs, as well as works your upper back, hips, glutes, and core. Lie on your back with your arms extended above your head, clasping your hands and raising your legs toward the ceiling. Lift your shoulders, open your legs, and chop your hands through your legs. Return to starting position and repeat. Begin by doing 2 sets of 10 reps each, and increase reps/set as you get stronger. Remember to inhale as you return to starting position and exhale as you crunch chop. 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾
This week's exercise is known as the Dead Bug. This is an exercise that works your lower abs/core (and one that took me a minute to get coordinated 😂😂😂). I did a few reps here, but I recommend doing 10 reps starting with right leg/left arm, and then repeating on the other side (left leg/right arm). 💪💪💪
Hi everyone! So for this week's exercise video I incorporated 3 exercises using the medicine ball (also worked to get the best form I could 😉😉😉). The medicine ball I used for this video is 6 pounds, but you can use whatever size is good for you. Plus, I finally made a video with sound! So geeked out about that! 😂😂😂
Hey! It's #ExerciseOfTheWeek and today's #exercise is the Glute Bridge! You should feel the burn in your glutes and your hamstrings if you're doing it correctly. The bridge is also great for improving hip mobility and strengthening your lower back! 💪💪💪
This week's exercise is the #crunch! Crunches strengthen the #abs by flexing them. Be careful (as I try not to in this video) to not bend your neck as you lift off the ground. Inhale as you are on the ground and exhale as you lift up with each crunch. 💪💪💪
This week's #exercise is the Dumbbell Swing. This little exercise primarily works your glutes, quads, and hamstrings, while also works your legs, core, and shoulders. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell (or kettleball) with both hands. Squat, bringing the dumbbell between your legs, then stand up and swing the dumbbell up to about chest height. Return to the squat position and repeat for a total of 10-15 reps. Because this exercise works several muscle groups at once, it can give you a great #cardio boost, burning more calories in a short period of time. 💪💪💪
For #ExerciseOfTheWeek we have the #triceppress using resistance bands. This is one of the exercises I like to do when I want to work on resistance training. I am using a light resistance band, but you can use a different resistance that best works for you. Bend over with your knees slightly bent, pull up, and then pull back, returning the way you started. Start with a set 10-15 reps and increase as you get stronger. 💪💪💪
This week's exercise is the floor wiper, which helps your abs and obliques. Lay in your back with your legs vertical, moving them to each side the best you can without touching the floor, then returning to center using your abs.
This week's exercise is the Weighted Ankle Crossover. For this exercise you will need ankle weights (I am using 2.5lb weights here). Start by getting on all fours with your forearms on the floor and knees about a foot behind your hips and straighten your right leg. Brace your core (abs) and glutes as you lift your right leg over to your left leg, tapping your right toe on your left foot. Return back to the beginning and repeat. I did a few reps here, I would start by doing 5 reps (you will definitely feel it in your legs and glutes) and then switch to the left leg.
