I stumbled upon this WONDERFUL & HELPFUL website. It breaks down moves targeted towards certain body parts. For example, if you need to work on your ankles, there is a page of exercises for that. If you need to work on your hip flexors, there is a page for that as well.
Here is the link:
Insanity Plyometric Circuit
I have been doing Insanity Max 30 from Shaun T, so I figured you could use some plyo and Shaun T inspiration in your life.
Check out the video below for the full workout. It’s only 40 minutes, you GOT this.
Leg Press Foot Placement
When we say leg press, we usually see people doing the first basic footing. Give and share these other foot placements to enhance an all around leg workout!
30 Dumbbell Exercises
Not sure where to start? See free weights in the gym and are intimated? Not sure what some exercises are supposed to look like? Take a look at this AWESOME set of 30 exercises to do with dumbbells.
5 Minute Pilates Abs
If you want a more challenging core workout, instead of doing theses exercises for 1 set and 10 reps. Give 3 sets of 10-12 reps a try! Enjoy 🙂
Arm & Core Workout
(With a weight!)
Thank you http://weheartstyleme.blogspot.com/2015/07/arm-core-workout-with-hand-weights.html?spref=pi for the awesome workout!
Ever wonder what to do after your run? Above are a few pictures of stretches you can do to release any running tension from your body. BUT FIRST, take a 2-3 minute walk or another lap around the track to bring your body and heart rate back to normal. After you complete your walk, think about stretching your legs. Since they did A LOT of the work, you want to make sure to give them some attention. After that open up into your spinal, core, chest, and arms.
1. Quad Stretch
Bring your foot back behind your body and grab onto it with your hand. Try to pull your knees together and push your hips forward.
2. Hamstring Stretch
Bend one knee and straighten the other leg. Bend over slightly and with a straight back. Place both of your hands on your bent knee or one on your bent knee and pull up on your toe.
3. Hip Opener Stretch
Take a wide plie squat and place both hands right on the inside of your thighs (close to your knees). Lean gently into each side and the middle.
4. Forward Fold
Place both feet together and bend forward. Try to reach your toes as you inhale and exhale. This will stretch out your hamstrings as well as your back.
5. Lunge + Warrior 1
Bring yourself into a comfortable lunge position. Push your hips forward, place your hands above your head, and lean back slightly.
6. Lunge + Twist
Being yourself back into that lunge position. If you are on your right side with your right leg forward, take your left hand and place it on the ground. Your right hand will go up in towards the sky.
Getting up and going to the gym is difficult, I know. Don’t let “I’m tired” and “I don’t have time” be your excuse. Be strong and say “Even though I had a full day at work, a 30 minute workout is 1.6% of my day.” Get up and get moving everyone!
The morning is the PERFECT time to stretch! Give this yoga sequence a try. Just make sure to do this sequence on both sides. 🙂
What a fun idea! Give these awesome (and clever) workouts a try! 🙂
