Fitness Friday #5

It's Baaaaaaack!
Yes, after a short hiatus it is indeed BACK! Fitness Friday...Do It!!!

Bun's and Legs-Tone 'Em Up!!!

Always warm up before doing any type of exercise. Walk for 3-5 minutes. Do some jumping jacks, butt kicks, jump rope, high knees, step-ups, arm circles, leg swings...anything to warm up the joints and muscles and get the blood in your body PUMPIN'!!!!

Bridges-2/15 (2 sets/15 reps each set) make these more difficult with heels on a Bosu or balance ball!
Glute Kickbacks-2/15
Lateral Leg Raises w/ band-2/15
Walking lunges w/ medicine ball (or anything weighted) w/ front raises-2/8-10 each leg
Plie Squat w/ medicine ball (or anything weighted)-2/15
Squat w/ leg abduction (same as lateral leg raise)-2/15
Mountain Climbers-3/15

Stretch those hamstrings, glutes and quadriceps before you're done! Flexibility is just as important as cardio and strength training so don't neglect that! Your muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints will thank you...especially as you age ;)
Please get permission and clearance from your Doctor before beginning any exercise program!
