Happy New Year everyone! I took a little GMF hiatus for a bit (a LONG bit) while we settled into our new home here in KS, then adjusted to living in a place that had winter again 😳 But I’m still here! And I’ve been over in the GMF Fit Friends Facebook group just in case you haven’t 😉 Anyway, the quick update is – Kansas is cold. Salads are good. So are new shoes, water bottles, and speakers that all coordinate! Also studying to add certified health coach to my resume! Basically, life has still been going at a crazy speed behind the scenes but I am here feeling refreshed and ready to bring fun things in 2018!
Happy Monday and happy JULY! Days are flying. We finally have all of our furniture and household goods delivered and unpacked. Put away/set up is another story… but the gym is getting assembled today! Im so ready to get back into my regular routine. Unpacking is a pretty decent workout though according to my fitness watch lol
Do each exercise, rest for a minute, then repeat. Try to do 3-4 rounds total.
**180 squat jumps – Sit low, then jump and land in a 180* turn. Make sure you alternate to go both ways.
**Narrow Push Up – Do these against a counter/bench, on your knees, or standard toes on the floor. Keep elbows closer to your body instead of wide like a regular push up. Just make sure body is in a straight line from shoulders to knees/toes. No sagging or sticking your butt out.
**Mountain climbers – 20 total, 10 each leg. However you want to count it.
**Static lunge – Step one foot back behind you wide enough to lunge. Lower your back knee down into a lunge position, then back up, and back down. No stepping back together between. Do that 10 times and switch legs.
**Inchworms – Y’all know I love these 😉 Stand tall, bend to touch your toes then walk your hands out into plank position, then back into your feet, then stand or jump up again. 10 times.
Be sure you’re getting in a warm up and cool down. A few rounds of air squats, arm circles, butt kicks, jumping jacks, walking lunges, torso twists…just get those muscles warm before you put them to work. Then stretch out when you’re done.
Happy sweating! Lets start this week off right! Let me know if you have any questions about this challenge or other training options.
