Five A-List Exercises 

Happy Monday!!!

I wanted to share with you five of my all-time favorite exercises for really getting strong & in shape. These exercises can be just a little advanced, but that's why they are my favorites, because they really put you to the test!

For the complete workout: Do 10 reps of each of these five exercies, for 6 rounds!

1. Dive Bombers

Get into a down-dog position and descend as you pretend you're trying to get low & crawl under a fence.  Then raise up into upward facing dog. Reverse the motion by pushing your hips backwards into down-dog (still trying to squeeze under your imaginary fence), and that counts as 1 rep!

This move really works your shoulders, back and legs!

2. Single-Leg Squats

This exercise is sooooo good for improving your lower body strength, balance and coordination. Doing single-leg squats is just as awesome as doing single arm pushups! Go as low as you can, then power up! Work up to this execise by holding onto something. 

3. Cork Screw

This exercise is so cool! Start in plank, then twist as you bend your knees to one side and look towards the opposite arm. Unravel back into plank, and repeat on the other side. 

4. Jump Lunges

Jump lunges are exhausting and sooo awesome for your legs! They require balance and power. Start in this position (see pic below), jump up in the air as you switch legs and land back into this position pictured below. Swing your arms to help you jump up with power. 

5. Speed Rope (jump rope)

Speed roping (or jump roping) is my favorite exercise of ALL TIME. It's simple, and in worse-case scenario, you don't even need a rope! I try to jump for as long as I can without stopping. Once I did a whole hour of jump-roping and burned about a million calories.

A speed rope is made of plastic and really thin. As you can see I have a jump rope, not a speed rope, but that's only because I can never find jump or speed ropes in my size, except for this one which I bought in France (go figure). But I hope one day to find a speed rope in my size!

 

I hope you give this workout a try, or at least incorporate one of these exercises into your next routine!
