One legged Deadlift

Holding 8- to 10-pound dumbbells, stand tall (A) and shift your weight to one foot. Slowly hinge your upper body forward at your hips, letting your weighted hands hang down and raising your free leg behind you in line with your torso. For good form, keep your hipbones even and parallel to the ground (B). Reverse the motion, slowly hinging back up to stand using the strength of the standing leg. If you can, keep the moving foot off the ground(C), but rest it briefly between reps if it’s too intense.

Squats! Everybody loves squats. Squats are honestly amazing for your legs and booty. They even help strengthen your back too! They’re just all round awesome and great for shaping your body.

P.s sorry for my awkward face hahaha but I do love the way my arms are looking!

TECHNIQUE

  • Begin in standing position with feet at hip width or slightly wider apart with toes pointing forward.

  • Flex at your hips and knees to lower your seat to knee height, with your knees positioned over your feet and not extending past your toes

  • Push through your heels and engage your glutes to return to the starting position

  • Keep chest up, shoulders back and core engaged throughout the movement

ERRORS TO WATCH FOR

  • Incomplete range of motion

  • Weight forward into the ball of foot rather tan sitting back into heels

  • Knees tracking in front of the toes or buckling inward

MODIFICATION

  • Modify the range of motion in the descent or hip/knee flexion

Hi guys here is another Full Body Workout.

You will only need 27 minutes to do it. 

Below are a couple of tips for each exercise: 

1- Squat: 

Focus on breathing deeply and moving your entire body. Try not to squat too deep in the first minute. Keep you abs contracted and your chest open. 

2- Scissors: 

Rotate from the waist. The elbow doesn’t have to touch the knee, just focus on the rotation. 

3- Heel Lifts:

The movement is done from a squat position, so it’s important that you try to maintain it during the heel lifts. Search for a position that allows you to execute the movement with safety but remember to challenge yourself. 

Option: Keep the hands on the waist

4- Knee To Elbow / Leg Lift: 

From Downward Dog bring your knee towards your elbow and curl your back, looking to your belly. 

When extending  the leg up push the floor with your hands. Keep your abs engaged all the time. 

5- Front Kick / Lunge: 

Engage you abs for balance. Kick low. 

Option: When doing the lunge the hand doesn’t  touch the floor

6- Squat / Lunge: 

The weight of your body will be on your heels. Keep your abs strong and chest open. 

Option: Don’t squat too low. When doing the lunge the hand doesn’t touch the floor. 

7- Open Leg Rocker: 

This one is a challenge! This movement is all about control. Focus on your abs. Curl your back and look to your belly when rolling back and when sitting open your chest and look forward. 

Option: Keep you legs bent to a 90 degree angle

8- Swimming: 

Engaged your butt and abs. Look forward. Keep your chest off the floor. 

9- Tricep / Cobra: 

This movement is like a dive. When doing the tricep keep your chest next to the floor. For cobra contract your butt and abs and it’s important you keep your legs and feet on the floor. Keep your shoulders relaxed and away from your ears. 

10- Half Circle Pose: 

This beautiful stretch opens and stretches the whole side of the body from foot to fingers. Half circle also opens the chest and the hips and stimulates the respiratory and nervous systems.

Be gentile when putting the supporting hand on the floor, if you can ‘t reach the floor whit your palm put only your fingertips. 

Try to keep your chest open. 

Hope you enjoy it! I’m here if you need any extra tip.

Stay Fit, Stay Well!

Cannonball Rolls

Sit on the mat with your knees bent to your chest and your hands wrapped tightly around the fronts of your ankles. Tuck your head down between your knees, and pull your abs in and up away from the thighs (A). Roll onto your upper back (never allowing the weight of your body to rest on your cervical vertebrae), and roll back up to balance on your tail—but this time, when you roll forward, press your knees and feet tightly together, release your hands, and jump up into the air (B, C, D, and E). Land softly, and reverse the movements back to the mat. 



This looks interesting!
