Besides Monday, what a beautiful week! I could get used to this 75 degree sunny weather real quick! ❤
This is your last Fit Friday of February, so we’re going back to the basics to get you ready for your Fit Test on Monday.
Pushups: Try to get your chest as close to the ground as possible. Don’t let your lower back sag towards the ground, keep your core tight and don’t strain your neck looking forward or underneath you.
Sit-Ups: Try not to throw your arms…the momentum will be lifting you up rather than your core.
Burpees: Get the feet off of the ground at the end of each burpee…even if it’s just a little bit!
Squats: Protect your knees by checking your form. If you look down and you can’t see your big toe because it’s blocked by your knees, then you need to scoot your booty back. Push through your heels and keep your back straight.
Jumping Jacks: Make sure your hands are touching your sides, then again overhead. When an exercise seems hard, we tend to inadvertently modify to make it easier.
Remember to warm up first then cool down at the end! Have fun! 😀
Happy, Happy Birthday to our youngest Fit Camper and my awesome helper, Caitlin! In honor of her turning 12 today, Fit Friday is centered around 12 reps! We’re going for 5 rounds today for a total of 60 reps.
If you have any questions about any of the exercises, please don’t hesitate to ask!
Warm up, cool down, stretch, watch your form and have fun! 😀
Happy Fit Friday!
This week, you only have 4 exercises, but it’s still going to be tough! Time yourself and see how long it takes you to get through 3 rounds. Remember to post your results!
Warm up, stretch, cool down…you know the drill by now. 😉
Clarification on the exercises and how to count your reps:
Criss Cross Burpees – Count 1 at the end of your “criss cross”.
Tricep Extensions – Count 1 each time you reach the top of your pushup.
Wide In & Outs – You will count 1 for each time your feet come in towards your hands. You’re not counting each movement.
Frog Power Kicks – You will count 1 for each kick. So, your hands touch the ground, you kick right…that = 1. Hands down, kick left = 2, Hands down, kick right = 3, and so on.
If you ever have any questions about the Fit Friday’s, please don’t hesitate to ask! 🙂
Watch your form, be safe and sweat lots! 😀
Happy First Fit Friday in February!
So, for this week, I’m going to give you several options to choose from and you get to pick what you want to do. How’s that? 🙂
Option #1 – You may choose any Fit Friday from January.
Option #2 – You may run/walk 1 mile, whether it be at the track, or through a neighborhood.
Option #3 – You may choose any other type of physical activity as long as it gets your heart rate up, and is 20 minutes or longer.
