I know I said I was going to post challenges last week, but, as you may have read in my prior post, I was sick. Didn't get around to it, sorry. Anyhow, if you are interested I pulled 2 exercises out of my Biggest Loser book- plus pictures. Nothing like a little visual aide =)
I am also incorporating yoga and pilates back into my weekly routine as I found them to be the most beneficial and enjoyable for myself and toning my body. So, my routine this week will be walking a few times (at least 3 ), Curves x3, and pilates & yoga x3. These exercises should be performed at least 3 times this week. You could even do them during commercial breaks!
The Push Out
Do 15 reps alternating legs, 3 sets. Start with both knees bent at a 90* angle, push one leg out and then pull back in, switch legs. This is meant to be done SLOWLY, with control. Make sure you keep your foot flexed.
Bend knees to a 90* angle. Bring knees toward your chin, lifting bum off the floor. Do 3 sets of 15.
Have a great week! Pump it up!
