Did you know that not wearing the right shoe for you is often the root cause of chronic aches and pains and can prevent you from getting the most out of your workouts, with the potential to cause injury?
Perform this weekend warrior challenge as a circuit – do 10 reps of all 4 exercises in a row repeating for 20 total minutes. How many rounds can you complete while maintaining good form?
1. Goblet Squat Be sure to go nice and low on this, elbows between knees
2. Single Leg Row Balance on one leg holding bands or cable. Alternate legs each round.
3. Push Ups If you cannot do full floor push ups, do them at an incline so that way you are still targeting your core.
4. Hanging Leg Raise I like to keep my legs straight at the start, but if I start to putter out, will just draw knees up to chest. If you are unable to “hang” you could modify and perform leg raises while lying on a mat.
Be sure to follow your workout challenge with a good post workout shake - I love Prograde Workout – along with a good total body stretch!
