This weekend was jam-packed with birthday celebrations here for our daughter who turned 7 years old. Such a lovely joyful time.
And then on Sunday, as I was driving to teach SUP, I turned on the radio and heard about Orlando and felt heartbroken. From joy to pain.
Today I dedicate this post and workout to the victims, families and loved ones of those involved in the tragedy in Florida. As you work on physical strength with these exercises and/or your own workout today, let's also focus on mental and emotional strength. I posted last week about strength in numbers. As a team, today lets make a commitment to be strong in our love and kindness for one another.
Our core work today is posted in the two videos below.
As always, if you still new to exercise, please practice one round. If you have been working out for a while, please try for 2-3 rounds
This is a fun buddy workout
1 plank hi five
1 help up
Then we do 2 of each, 3 of each and so on.
Set your timer for 5 minutes or set a goal for number of reps.
And then there's this:
20 sec work, 10 seconds rest
Plank tap Shoulders
Thank you to my 6:00 am class for being my models today for these workouts.
Peace and strength to all of you.
