Workout Challenges

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.

Reverse Crunch
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!

Nice pictures!!! I will do these. Another thing that I have been doing is 10 min. solutions on Netflix. It is nice because I can get 10 min in without the kiddos torturing me because that is when they start bugging me and I was able to feel the burn with the ones I was doing so I hope to keep that up.
