I’m all over the new mini challenge for this week. You’ve seen it right?? The push is to exercise 5 times this week for 30 minutes(or more). Now that 30 minutes does not have to be done all at one time. While I’m at work I am breaking it into 3 ten minutes sets. Not bad and it usually gives me that little burst of energy I need during my work day.
First 10 minute mini workout:
*There are 3 sets of 10 for each*
chair dips/triceps dips
squats with raised arms to front
Second 10 minute mini workout:
*3 sets of 10 for each*
Leg lift (each side) and with a kick out – So hold on to the door frame, lift leg and kick out.
lunge (each side)- hands on your hips, step forward and squat. Complete and switch sides
wide leg squats- I step out with a wide stance and point my toes out a bit
Third 10 minute mini workout:(I’m doing this at home later)
*3 sets of 10 each*
Reverse crunch- lay on back, cross feet and keep your hands behind your neck. Only move your lower body and bring knees in
Cross over crunches (each side)- keep your hands behind your head and with your left elbow sit up and touch your right knee. Change sides
Crunches-regular sit ups
So with the broken down versions I am trying to get my arms, butt and abs done in one day. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get cardio worked in there too.
