I need to do a bunch of these, like I did in Week 2; as it really helps!
Thanks Desiree!

Week 4 (April 22 – April 30)

Here are this week’s exercises! Do one or all of them… whatever you like, and as much as you like! Just remember to count and keep track of your reps each day so you can log them in. Enter all of your points, weight, etc into the posting titled, “APRIL POTTY POINTS LOG”. That way, we’re all logging in the same spot.

***Please feel free to chitchat and discuss feedback about this challenge in THIS posting, but avoid discussion in the “APRIL POTTY POINTS LOG”. Let’s use that ONLY for tracking our points.

LET’S ROCK WEEK 4! (FINAL DAYS!!!)


1) HIP FLEXOR & EXTENSION - Stand with feet slightly apart, toes forward, hands on hips or one hand on a wall for support. Shift weight to right leg, keeping knee slightly bent and spine straight. Slowly lift the left leg, keeping it bent until thigh is parallel with floor. From here, extend leg straight out from the knee until entire leg is parallel to floor and straight. Slowly and with control, lower entire leg down to the ground, keeping it straight. Repeat for all reps and switch sides. (works the hips & quads)

2) WIDE LEG WALL SIT w/CALF RAISES - Stand with back against wall, feet twice shoulder-width apart, toes turned out. Slowly slide butt down wall until thighs are parallel to floor. Stay in this wall squat while you perform the exercise. Rise on toes for two counts. Lower for two counts to complete one rep. After one set is complete, straighten legs to come out of the squat. (works the quads, glutes, inner thighs & calves)

3) SKATER SQUATS - Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, hands on hips or behind back. Squat down slightly, bending from the knees, keeping abs tight. Lift left leg to side as you bend right knee to squat. Hold for 1-3 counts. Bring leg back to center (keeping legs bent in the squat position). Straighten legs to come out of the squat. Repeat on opposite side for one rep. (works the quads, glutes, hips & outer thighs)




*** If you'd like to see a demo of any of these exercises, you can find them in SparkPeople's strength exercises!

AND don’t forget to drink those 8 glasses of water!


Good luck everyone!
