4 Squat Flip via Nike Women
Cardio & BOOTY work! Add some hot plyometric action to your squats for a heart rate boost & a lower body blast.
Tip: sink down deep into a squat and ”pop” up using your hips as much as possible. Only go as fast as you can with proper form (speed comes as you master the move over time).
Too easy? Add medium dumbbells or a medicine ball for added resistance.
Goal: try working up to one minute of these (start with 30-45 seconds) and repeat it 3 times during ANY workout.
Just a quicky to get my HR up!
I’m going to be making some changes to my blog…a little spring cleaning! I’m going to keep posting and reblogging fitspo but adding a few new things.
I’m going to be including more of my own things and start having theme days.
Sunday Funday - something fun to do on my rest day
Monday Motivation - To get my ass off the couch and prepared for the week ahead
Tuesday TMI - a personal post and open question session
Wednesday Workouts - A custom workout that I’ve been doing
Thursday Tracking - Just a check in with my body not necessarily measurments
Friday Teatime - I’ve been meaning to try out some new teas, I’ll let you know what I think. This will probably turn into a new recipe as well.
Smoothie Saturday - I LOVE making smoothies and I’ll post the ingredients and calories too!
What do you guys think?
Have a great workout Wednesday!!
- too much cardio
- staying away from free weights
- focusing on too few muscle groups
- not pushing hard enough
- going without a plan
- not changing routines
I feel accomplished. I really do, it’s amazing. Yesterday after my 10 hours of class I went to the gym. I did 30 minutes of cardio on the dreadmill on a 2.0 incline between 4.9 and 5.6 mph.
Then I squatted, I hate free lifting in my campus gym because it’s full of meatheads and baseball players who look at a female lifter like an animal in a zoo. But a lot of my male friends were there and it was super supportive and I even asked a friend of a friend for help with my form. I didn’t break any records just 3x10 with 65 lbs (the bar and a 10 lb weight on each side) but I am sore today.
THEN after I went climbing and I knocked out 2 v2s and finished a v1 that I usually struggle with. I have a new motivation, if I don’t at least try to reach the next hold I have to do 5 pushups. I didn’t do any pushups last night and I accomplished a lot more than I have been doing usually.
I’m proud of myself and now I’m sitting in the historical society looking at a huge stack of books for my thesis.
