MOVE OF THE WEEK: PLANK (in honor of our 30 Day Plank Challenge)

Sometimes the simplest of movements result in the greatest gains to your fitness.  This is certainly the case with planks. A plank may look easy at first, but this is deceiving. Holding a proper plank position takes strength and endurance in your abs, back, and quads.

The plank is one of the most effective exercises for core conditioning, as it engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously.  Not only does it give you a killer core, but it also works your glutes and hamstrings, supports proper posture, reduces back-pain, and improves flexibility and balance.

Visit my FB page for detailed instructions on how to do a proper plank, as well as for modifications.

Move of the week: Jump Tuck Burpees!

Move of the week: Jump Tuck Burpees!

Most of us have a love-hate relationship with burpees. And by “love-hate”, I mean “hate-hate”. They are HARD! However, the truth is that burpees are an awesomely effective exercise that delivers both full-body strength conditioning AND major calorie burn. You don’t need to buy any equipment and you can do them anywhere! A few seconds of burpees will convince anyone that burpees are a major butt-kicking workout. Tuck-jump burpees are even more intense! This is a still from my Full Body Tabata Blast workout – getting some air on the tuck jump!

To perform a Tuck Jump Full Burpee:

1) squat down and put hands on the floor in front of you
2) kick your feet back and do a push-up
3) Immediately return to a squat position and explosively leap up as high as possible from the squat, while simultaneously bending your knees and tucking your feet up. Repeat, moving as fast as possible.

Modifications: If you are a beginner, are recovering from an injury, or are just getting back into exercising try these modifications.

For less intensity:

A woman's calves are one of the most often seen parts of her body -- from dresses and skirts, to bathing suits, to shorts, our legs are on display. However, the calf muscles are often neglected because we don’t see it as a “problem area”. DON'T ignore your calves!  A set of well-developed calves helps balance out the symmetry of the legs and makes the upper leg appear smaller.  Not to mention strong calves help you rock those 5 inch heels! I've got goals for my calves and legs this year: more defined and stronger. What are your goals? A new calve video will be up on my FB and YouTube Channel (link in bio) later today, so swing by and “like” FB (FitForceFX) or subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss it!  It hits both the gastrocnemius and the soleus muscles.  Hope you like it!

Day 10 #letsgetflexyin2015 Yoga Challenge. Viparita Dandasana (aka super duper intense deep backbend - AKA ouchy). I should have warmed up! I have to be very mindful of my dislocating shoulders. Bottom pic is my attempt at the full pose and top pic is my modification basic backbend). I didn't put my forearms down on my matt fully, as that's a position for my shoulders that I'm supposed to avoid. But here is my Inverted Staff Pose #yogafail anyways!
