To maintain a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle it’s important to exercise!
I go to the gym six days a week to keep myself feeling good and looking good as well. My friend, Floyd Perez, is a personal trainer, fitness nutrition specialist, and a functional movement specialist. He joined me on a workout and we are sharing it with you. Follow this full body workout and start to feel good!
Fun Fact: Exercise reduces stress and helps you have a positive mental attitude!
Full Body Workout
All you need is two small towels and an open space for you to work out in!
Make sure to warm up and stretch before any type of physical exercise! Warming up helps get your muscles ready and helps prevent injury!
Move: Reverse Lunges | Repetition: 20
Start off standing with your feet together and with your hands at your hips. Take a full step backward with your right leg and raise your right arm. Your left thigh will become parallel with the floor and your knee should be directly over your knee. The leg that you stepped backward with should be bent at a 90-degree angle with your heel lifted off the ground. Bring your right leg back to the starting position to complete the move. Alternate legs and step back with your left leg. Continue to complete your reps.
Move: Jack Knives | Repetition: 15
Start in a plank position with your hands and feet on the ground. Your arms should be under your shoulders and your body should be in a straight line. Pull your knees towards your chest and slide them back out. Exhale as you bring your knees in. Push your knees back out to the plank position.
Tip: Focus on tightening your core. A strong core leads to better balance and stability.
Move: Push Ups | Repetition: 15
This is just a good old fashioned push-up. Start off with your hands and feet on the ground and push yourself down through your elbows. Push yourself back up. If you’re a beginner, try this move on your knees for more stability.
Make sure not to round your back- form is everything!
Move: Hamstring Curls| Repetition: 10
Place feet on towels with your heels down. Lay back and leave your hands to the side. Slide your heels down towards your glutes while raising your hips at the same time. Push your feet back down and lower your hips.
Don’t forget to let yourself rest in between sets! Go at a pace that you are comfortable with and have fun!
