WMOW = Workout Move Of the Week
Hey everyone! Hope the rest of your weekend went well If you’re just getting back from vacay, here are some things that went down over the weekend:
-We talked about what to do when your eating habits differ from your family and friends –I have to say that I’m loving your thoughtful and amazing comments to this one- and
- I got a FLIP! goofy videos
Last night, the pilot and I hit up the gym around 11:30 to film a little workout video I thought it would be fun to do a workout move each week, and demonstrate a few intensity levels for said move.
This week, I chose the lunge and lift.
Some things to remember:
-As always, only perform certain strength training moves if you are in proper health to do so. If it hurts, don’t do it.
-Start with the beginning level of the move, making sure to use proper form and correct posture. Only move up to a higher intensity level once you can comfortably do the exercise with proper form at the lower level.
-Always keep your abs tight
-Aim for 10-12 repetitions on each side, with 30-60 seconds of rest after each set. Go for 2-3 sets.
-This exercise works your glutes and hamstrings. Add it in on legs day or on a circuit training day (when you work your entire body).
-Think “booty” as you lift your leg, and squeeeeeeeeze
-Don’t let your back knee hit the floor—try to stop around 2 inches above the ground
