Monday Moves #6

Holy Canoli, I can’t believe it’s already week 6 of this series! I hope these posts are sparking ideas for your workouts and/or reminding you of moves you might not have done in a while. Let me know if you’d like me to post specific exercises….and I might actually do it.

So, yeah, I’ve got FOUR moves for you guys this week. Fancy fancy.

ONE: MARCHING HIP RAISES

– Lie on your back, with your feet planted on the ground.

– Raise your hips up in the air

-Keeping your hips high, drive your right knee to your chest.

-Bring your right knee back to starting position, and repeat the same with your left knee. Keep your hips high throughout the exercise.

TWO: OFFSET DUMBBELL REVERSE LUNGE

-Start with feet together, dumbbell in left hand at shoulder height.

-Step back with your right foot into a reverse lunge.

-Come back to starting position. Repeat desired reps and do the same with opposite leg and weight in right arm.

THREE: BICEP CURL WITH STATIC HOLD

-Holding a weight in each hand, allow the left arm to hold the weight at your side, and the right arm to hold the weight with your elbow at a 90 degree angle.

-Keeping the weight in your right arm still, perform a full bicep curl with your left arm. Continue until you complete desired number of reps and repeat with the opposite hand.

FOUR: SIDE-LAYING LATERAL RAISE

-Start by laying on your side, feet stacked. You can prop your head up with your bottom arm.

-Hold weight in top hand, with palm down. As your raise your arm up to its fully extended position, rotate the wrist so that is facing away from you.

-Bring the weight back down to your side, again rotating the weight back to starting position.

*******

Like I said, fancy fancy. And now I must wait for my nails to dry and go to bed. Tomorrow is my final interview which will hopefully end up in the job offer! Fingers crossed (after they dry, of course).

Question: Favorite exercise lately? What’s the last workout that made you sore??

  1. Yea for Monday Moves! I’m loving anything I typically “hate”, I make myself do my least fav exercises…for example, plank rows w/ squat thrusts, pikes with push-ups, etc. Fun, fun!
