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=
or Beyonce's "Move your body" www.youtube.com/watch?v=
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!)
Watch the Dance Party & Smile! www.youtube.com/watch?v=
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.
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.
