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
-Have fun 🙂
