First workout of 2014


First workout of 2014

My trainer’s back from holidays and put this little number together for the 5 girls in my group today. We’re usually a pretty fit bunch but we did struggle after having a few weeks off. Oh well, as Maree says “Pain is weakness leaving your body.” And by that account, a great deal of weakness left my body this morning….

Here are some demos:
Stationary Lunge
Tricep Dips
Box Jumps (I use a step and make it about 5 levels high)
Mountain Climbers
Four Point Push-Up
Alternating Lunges
Iron Cross
Bicycle Crunches
Plate Crunches (My trainer had us put our legs straight in the air as opposed to the bent position in this video. We had to try to get the plate to touch our shoes, head doesn’t touch the ground.)
Russian Twist

Three workouts to get you through the holidays.
