Ladies Night Out!

Don’t have access to a gym but want a full body workout?  You’re in luck. Turns out that your body weight is enough to get everything firing!  We LOVE an interval workout where you cycle through a few different exercises a certain number of times to keep things interesting.  Here are 4 exercises that you can try. Do 30 seconds of #1, 30 seconds of #2 on each leg, 30 seconds of #3, then 30 seconds of #4 on each leg.  That’s one round. Do 2-3 rounds total! To further challenge yourself, increase the time spent doing each exercise. Let’s go:

1. PLANKS

PLANK:
Hold position pictured above.  Can further challenge this by lifting one foot off the ground and switching feet every few seconds.

2. BULGARIAN LUNGES

BULGARIAN LUNGE:
Assume position pictured above.  Front knee is right above front of ankle, keeping your weight evenly centered between ball of your foot and your heel (not just in your heel).  Weight on your back foot should be light. Once you have held this position for 30 seconds, repeat on your other leg.

3. TRICEP DIPS

TRICEP DIPS:
Get into the position shown above.  Slowly bend your elbows to lower your body partway down and then push back up.  If this feels too challenging, can simply hold the “up” position.

4. STEP UPS

STEP UPS:
Start with your right foot up on the bench.  Without your right knee moving excessively forward, step up, lifting your left knee knee and toes up into the position shown above.  Come back down. Once you have done this for 30 seconds, repeat on your other leg.

Happy Sweating!
