Thank you to everyone who is following along with this challenge. It is a pleasure for me to share what I know and love about health, fitness and wellness and particularly to focus on strength.
Last week we started tracking our food. I know it's hard to do. I'll get in a groove of logging into My Fitness Pal and then forget and fall out of the habit.
I hope for those of you who are trying a food journal, or thinking of trying it, are seeing some benefits.
When I talk to my clients about calories and exercise, I always emphasize moderation and awareness. A few years ago I did a bootcamp training and we talked about nutrition. One of the take aways from that discussion was a few simple questions to ask ourselves....Am I hungry? Is the food I'm going to eat a smart choice? How much do I need?
I'm going to elaborate on these over the next day or so. For today, see if you can add one or two of these questions into your day as you choose how to fuel your body.
For today's physical task I offer you a short, simple effective sequence to work your backside. Add it in during or at the end of your workout today or tomorrow.
Simple sequence for glutes, hamstrings, abs and back
Thank you to my 6am clients for the demo and the commentary.
In the video I say "lift your leg hip height". You can do that or lift it higher (like I show in the video)....the key is to keep it long and in line with you spine. If we find our back is starting to arch, just lower the height of the leg lift.
10-16 reps of each ( I show 12) .
Make sure you stretch after!
