Happy Fitness Friday, everyone! This mini workout probably looks familiar to some of you. Well, that's because I've decided to start posting these as blog posts here instead of just pictures on the site and social media. In an effort to save the ones I have made thus far, I'm starting from day 1 of the #fitnessfriday mini workouts and reposting as a blog entry. Bear with me as I make my way through them - and hey, this is a great opportunity for you all to go back and revisit the workouts yourself!
If you're just reading this for the first time and haven't discovered these yet, the #fitnessfriday mini workouts are posted every Friday morning here on the blog, as well as on my social media accounts for you all to keep with you throughout your day. The goal isn't so much a full workout as it is to help remind you to get active and moving. Each "workout" has a number of rounds to do in one sitting, and then a number of times to do those rounds throughout your day. For example, if the workout says 3 rounds, 3 times today, you'd do a total of 9 rounds throughout your day, broken up into increments of 3. Each post also has instructions under the picture in case you aren't familiar with the moves.
Have fun and enjoy! Here's to being active, healthy, and happy! Make sure to comment, tag, or otherwise let me know on social media how you do with these. Use hashtag #fitnessfriday and be sure to tag me (@infitinhealth) so I can check in! Follow me using the links in the sidebar to the right (or below if on a mobile device). :)
FITNESS FRIDAY 2/20:
3 sets, 3x today
Push Ups - your regular ol' push ups. If you need to, drop down to your knees. There's nothing wrong with that! Remember to keep your spine neutral throughout the movement (meaning there's no arch/bend in your back!).
Squats - regular ol' squats as well! Go as low as you can, sticking your butt back and keeping your head up and chest open.
Plank - I'd like you to try a high plank for 30 seconds. Keep your shoulders over your wrists and your core tight to keep your spine aligned. If your wrists bother you, drop to your elbows.
