Take 10!

We’re upping the challenge this week!

Your challenge is to do this challenge 4x this week! Here are 3 exercises that all the muscles most of us want to work - arms, chest, glutes, and legs. You don't have to be in your workout clothes. You simply have to remember to engage your core with each exercise. When you play each video, don't worry, there's nothing wrong with your audio. Each one is simply the exercise. :)

1. Warm-up with 1 minute of walking or running in place.

2. 15 Push-ups at the wall or on the ground

Engage your core. Imagine that you're pulling shoulder blades down into your back pockets. You can either do the push-ups at the wall or on the ground with your knees up or your knees on the ground. Inhale as you lower and exhale as you push-up. 

3. 1 Minute: Rear Lunge with arms

4. 15 of each of the 3 exercises.

Make sure your hips are back and your back is straight. Core is engaged throughout the entire set of exercises. Be sure to not let your standing leg and hip pop out to the side.

If these are too tough, just come back to your basic squat.

 

5. Do 30 seconds of Jumping Jacks.

6. 8 Tricep Push-ups at the wall or on the ground. 

Shoulder blades are still pulling down toward your back pockets. Core engaged. Make sure your elbows point down to the ground throughout the exercise. Fingers point up to the sky.

7. 30 - 60 second Wall Sit



8. Lunge with Cactus Arms - 30 second hold on each side

9. 60 second: Sumo Squats

10. Forearm Plank - How long can you hold the plank?

11. Stretch out with a nice extended child!

Have more time? Run through it again! You'll be happy you did!
