WORKOUT WEDNESDAY! I wasn’t 100% sure I’d get a video done this week as we’re having work done on the garden which means I get less time outside but I guess the workmen left early Tuesday to watch the USA football World Cup game so I got out in the blistering heat to get a workout video done 😉 This weeks workout has a piece of equipment, a beach ball but can be done without it. This beach ball was found at the dollar store, yep fun addition to a workout for just $1!
The workout has 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of rest, 5 exercises, and 3 rounds/sets of work for a total of 15 minutes! As always if you have longer then workout longer! Just repeat till you run out of time. Remember if you want to get the videos straight away subscribe to my youtube channel! The full video is below:
The first exercise is Squats with Around the World beach ball arms. Start in a standing position, then squat down, hold the squat whilst circling the arms around clockwise. When arms complete the circle, stand up returning to starting position. Repeat with the arms circling anti-clockwise.
Now we’ve mobilized the shoulders and strengthened the legs, lets move onto the upper body with Rolling Push Up. Start in a push up position with one hand under the ball, perform a push up (knees or toes) then roll the ball to the other hand and repeat.
Next up is one move we do twice, just switching sides later, it’s the Double Leg Raise or V-Up, your choice of intensity. Place the ball between the ankles, lie on one side and lift the legs. Squeeze the ball between the legs. For the V-Up lift the upper body to meet the lower body.
Penultimate move is a Ball Transfer. Lying down on your back, legs across the floor, arms overhead holding ball in the hands. Crunch up whilst lifting the legs over the hips, place the ball between the ankles and extend arms and legs out. Crunch in again and grab the ball between the hands returning to the start position.
Finish with the Double Leg Lift or V-Up to the opposite side.
And that’s this weeks workout! 15 minutes but it’s all you need! Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
