Trainer Tip Tuesday #2
Try exercising outside. The fresh air and amazing temperatures we have had the past few days makes working out more enjoyable! Being outdoors can be soothing & it can help reduce stress levels. When I am outside I tend to relax, take in the views, and my mind clears. They also say a little Vitamin D is good too right??
For a lower body focus grab a set of dumbbells and try these 2 exercises:
To maintain good form for the Sumo Squat keep your chest up, rotate your hips back as you squat, and focus on keeping the weight in your heels as you stand.
(please excuse my face, the sun is bright)
A key point on form in a forward lunge is to make sure that your knee does not pass your toes as you lunge forward. Also try not to drop your chest forward.
WARM-UP with a light 5 minute jog around the block or a brisk 5-10 minute walk.
Complete 3 Sets of 20 Repetitions of each exercise. In between each set perform 20 Jumping Jacks.
***Always consult a Doctor or Physician before beginning a new exercise program***
