April status updates - we danced, now to tone up


Monday, April 08, 2013

Each day I listen to at least one upbeat song.
The first week of April I shared a song daily in my status updates.
I was thinking about continuing the trend this week, using line dances
(like the "Cupid Shuffle" www.youtube.com/watch?v=
h24_zoqu4_Q

or Beyonce's "Move your body" www.youtube.com/watch?v=
mYP4MgxDV2U
).
But I decided it would be more helpful to add on a different fun fitness activity. We don't want to get into a rut!
(Keep dancing, though! Like Kid President says - YOU ARE AWESOME!)

So each week in April, keep a look out for what I'm doing here to earn fitness minutes, and join me if you feel inclined or inspired.

This week we'll be doing a strength move every day.

Monday: SQUATS



Here's Coach Nicole's version www.sparkpeople.com/reso

For more challenge, you can add an overhead press with dumbbells and/or a heel raise for the calves and balance. I have a BOSU and will use it. Wall squats with a stability ball are also quite effective.

Combination moves can be time efficient and engage the brain.

I was able to buy an adjustable kettlebell at Target, with an instructional DVD, and will be practicing with it. Want to see? empowerfitness.com/stren

Looking forward to seeing visible results before June. Still sculpting my masterpiece. emoticon

    Coach Nicole seems a wonderful person, and a great role model, but I'm fully convinced she's an alien life form! Notice that she does all exericizes with no sign of strain, and her back is almost always perfectly straight. She's either an alien, or came from the same factory as C3PO. emoticon

Yes, you guessed it. I am just GREEN with envy. If you can emulate her, I'm even greener. Congratulations!
