This week was all about trying something new.
Hi friends: Another great holiday weekend here and just wanted to share one of the new activities I tried this week.
After a night out with friends – where hilarity ensued; we thought it would be a great idea to channel our inner Serena Williams…Just one problem, normally when it comes to excersise that involves equipment – I’m like a total spaz.
Insert my face to this pic enough said!
To prepare for this epic event I wanted to pay some respect to my lower body. I rocked out with a lunge challenge; and while my career as a tennis pro is questionable lunges are a perfect all round excersise.
AMRAP (As Many Reps As Possible)
forward lunge; reverse lunge and Curtsy lunge
1. Curtsy lunge: Start standing with your feet hip width apart, and then, keeping your weight in your left foot, take a big step back with your right leg, crossing it behind your left leg (as if about to do a ‘curtsy’). Slowly bend your knees and lower your body straight down until your front thigh is parallel to the floor, and both knees are bent at 90 degrees.
2. Forward lunge: Take a wide step forward with your right foot as you bend your knees, lowering your body into a lunge. Both knees should bend at a 90-degree angle, and the front thigh should be parallel to the floor, keeping your knee behind your toes. (Same again with left leg)
3. Reverse lunge: Take a wide step backward with your right foot as you bend your knees, lowering your body into a lunge. Both knees should bend at a 90-degree angle, and the front thigh should be parallel to the floor, keeping your knee behind your toes.
Changing up my workout routine was a great way to keep it fun. What do you do to keep your workout from getting boring?
