If you were to ask me what my favorite exercises are, I would have a hard time narrowing it down. I do have a few favorites however, and today I am sharing them with you in this 3, 2, 1, workout!
First, 3 total body moves! These are going to strengthen, tone, and challenge you from head to toe and especially that middle area!
1. Step Back Lunge with a Scoop
Alternate legs for the step back lunge and repeat the same arm movements with each leg.
2. Spiderman Walk Through
To get out of the Spiderman Walk through, take that leg that is airborne and shift your weight back, bringing your right leg to start, and then the left hand and the left leg! This is such a fun move when you get the hang of it. Repeat on the other side.
3. Downward Facing Dog Push-Ups with alternating Leg Lifts
Come out of the push-up by straightening your arms and then lower your leg down to the ground. Lift the other leg and do your push-up! Continue this pattern of alternating legs after each push-up!
2 of my favorite shoulder moves!
1. Plank to Dolphin Flow
Let your hips lower down and come back into your forearm plank. Continue to keep flowing from plank into your dolphin holding in each position for a 1-2 second hold.
2. Lateral Raises
Lower the weights straight down and finish your reps.
1 of my favorite stretches!
This one is so incredibly simple but feels so therapeutic as it stretches the entire length of the upper body. They key here is to hold the stretch. We often come out of our stretches after only a few seconds, but if this one is held you will feel your body open up and release more and more. If you can, try closing your eyes.
Put it together!
3 sets of 10 of the 3 total body moves.
2 sets of 20 of each of the shoulder sculptors.
1 minute side stretch on each side.
Want to pair this with some cardio today? Try some HIIT with your running, biking, walking, or elliptical!
3 minutes of high intensity, all out effort here! 3 minutes is a long time, but this is great training, followed by 3 minutes of recovery.
2 minutes of HIIT followed by 2 minutes of recovery.
1 minute of HIIT followed by 1 minuet of recovery.
Repeat 1 more time!
Let me know if you try this workout and what some of your personal favorite moves are for sculpting what body part! This is a great workout to pair with the SUMMER BABY playlist!
*Lately I have been getting kind messages asking me to do fitness videos or a You Tube Channel. First, thank you for believing in me and seeing something in me when maybe I don’t see it in myself! Second, the awesome GoPro camera that my fitness family in Chicago gifted me before I moved cannot be supported on my Google Chromebook, which is all I have here with me in the UK. We worked and worked on a way to make it happen, but alas, it can’t. It will have to wait a few more months until I am home and have my desktop. Thank you and please keep your wants, needs, and ideas coming my way! This is a family/community and I want to provide you with everything I can to the best of my ability!
