Welcome to the very first installment of Workout Wednesday’s!
Each Wednesday I hope to inspire others to be healthier, stronger in mind and body.
Whether that means introducing you to a new workout that I enjoy, creating my own workout to share, giving my opinion on dieting and food, or simply offering advice on how to find time in your schedule for YOU, each Wednesday will offer something for the healthier side of life, physically and mentally.
This week, as an introduction, I thought it might be a good idea to give an introduction to 3 key strength moves and how to perform them without injuring yourself.
The squat, dead-lift, and push-up are 3 core moves that, put together, are a workout in themselves but are also often inserted in any number of workout combinations that you will find on DVD’s, on YouTube, or will be used at your local gym or by your personal trainer.
So let’s go over these moves together to make sure that you do them correctly so that you can get the most out of them, gain the most strength, without harming yourself.
Let start with the squat. No one likes a tiny butt and doing squats will help you tighten and tone your booty while keeping it nice and round as well.
Second, let’s take a look at how to do a proper dead-lift. This exercise when done correctly is great for your ENTIRE backside. Not only will it tighten your booty and hamstrings, it will give you the great crease between your butt and thigh that every woman dreams of during bathing suit and shorts season!
For a full body exercise you need look no further than the push-up. This move is easy to do wrong and incredible for your abs, your arms, shoulder, and thighs when done right.
Now that we have the logisitics out of the way you can practice these moves in any number of ways. I would suggest the following:
- Do as many squats as you can in a minute, without or without weight.
- Weight 30 Seconds and repeat.
- Do this for 5 rounds
Do the same with push-ups and dead-lifts (you should add some sort of weight to the dead-lifts, whether it be 10 or 50 pounds, just add something)
Trust me your heart rate will be up and you will be sore in the morning.
