DAILY WORKOUT: MONDAY, APRIL 12-- Free Spirit
DAILY WORKOUT: FRIDAY, APRIL 16-- Super Abs
For your workout today, you will do page 85 “Super Abs," in the VOLUME II Drylands Book. This will be a great way to finish off your week, with a little abs!
— For crunches, cradle your head in your arms behind you, so that you don’t strain your neck
— For bridges, hold the tightest streamline possible as you push your pelvis upwards
— For heel taps, try to keep your shoulders low to the ground as you move side-to-side
DAILY WORKOUT: THURSDAY, APRIL 15-- Arms & Back
For your workout today, you will do page 74 “Arms & Back," in the VOLUME II Drylands Book. This is a good one made obviously for your arms and back— you may even recognize some of the shoulder exercises from back in the day at GW!
— For all standing exercises, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent
— For superman stretches, get both arms and legs off the ground at the same time, moving slowly and controlled
— For the last 3 exercises done on your tummy, keep you head positioned looking down into the floor (even though it may feel strange to do)
DAILY WORKOUT: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14-- Dragonborn
For your workout today, you will do page 33 “Dragonborn," in the VOLUME I Drylands Book. This is a good one for core and overall strength.
— For planks into lunges, make sure this stays as two separate movements by going slow and steady
— For cross chops, rotate from your trunk, not your shoulders
— Do all of these exercises slow and controlled to get the most out of them and avoid injury
DAILY WORKOUT: TUESDAY, APRIL 13-- Playing With Scissors
For your workout today, you will do page 28 “Playing With Scissors," in the VOLUME II Drylands Book. This is a fun one that gets your heart rate up and your shoulders burning as well!
— For seal jacks, extend your arms fully out in front of you with your palms together as you jump your legs outward
— Stand with good posture and your legs shoulder-width apart for scissor chops and arm scissors
— For flutter kicks, your feet shouldn’t be more than 8-10 inches off the ground (about the size of your shoe) and keep your toes pointed
For your workout today, you will do page 27 “Free Spirit," in the VOLUME II Drylands Book. This is a good on for your shoulders and a great way to start off your week!
— For arm circles, do half the time forward and then switch to backwards
— After a couple rounds, if you would like it to be more cardiovascular you may do jumping jacks instead of step jacks
— This is an HIIT workout, using time rather than reps— so get out that stopwatch!
