Strength & Balance Workout

Happy Saturday, y’all! What a week. Until today (which I plan to do once I get this post up) I have only ran once. And that was on a treadmill and wasn’t the best run. Sometimes that happens though…you have the best intentions and other things come up. And¬†that’s ok! Try not to stress about missed workouts and just get right back into it as soon as you can. Instead of getting to the gym yesterday I did this workout in my house with a 10lb dumbbell. I was super sweaty and today my legs are sore so I count that as a success.

Today’s workout is all about gaining strength &¬†improving your balance. Grab a dumbbell and get to work!

What you’re doing:

  • Single Leg Wood Chop. 12 on each leg. Try to stay on one leg, tap the back toe down to stabilize if you need to. Drop the weight if you need to.
  • Floor Bridge. 12 full, then lift and pulse 12.
  • Single Leg Touchdown to Curl and Press. 12 on each leg. Similar to the first exercise, if you need to tap the back toe down to stabilize yourself go for it, just keep most of your weight on the leg you’re working.
  • Side Planks. 30 seconds each side.

Do each exercise in order. Rest for 60 seconds and repeat for a total of 3 rounds.

If you wan’t an extra challenge try adding time to your side planks or throw in a 4th round!
