The Creating Wellness Lifestyle – BE FIT
It is important to get moving because physical activity is an essential component of your life. Human beings are meant to incorporate physical activities at ALL ages because movement equals living life to your full potential. We need to keep moving because if we don’t move we will begin to lose function. There are so many things that we can enjoy when we have the physical capacity to participate in BEing FIT. We will achieve this through Chiropractic care, home postural corrective exercises, and encouraging physical fitness.
Special Workout Tip: For a seriously hot physique, make sure no muscle is left behind!
Tone Your Whole Body in Four Moves
Wild guess: When you work out, your main concerns are lifting your butt, trimming your thighs, flattening your belly, and sculpting sexy arms. Makes sense, but focusing only on obvious attributes can lead to muscular imbalances, causing pain and raising your risk or pain. Plus, you’ll miss out on your body’s full potential. The solution? Hit neglected areas — calves, lats, hamstrings, and rear delts — while working your entire body to boost lean muscle mass and fry fat fast.
Complete this circuit three days a week. Do all the reps for each move without taking a break between exercises. Rest for up to 30 seconds after the last move, then repeat the circuit two or three more times.
1. Ballet Calf Raises
Stand next to a chair with your heels together and toes pointed out to create a wide V shape. Place your right hand on the chair, left hand on your hip. Slowly rise onto the balls of your feet. Hold for two seconds, then slowly return to start. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 15.
2. Rotation Row
Hold a pair of dumbbells in front of you at shoulder height, palms facing down. Stand with your right foot in front of your left, bend your knees, and lean forward slightly. Pull the weights to the sides of your torso, rotating your palms toward your body. Slowly return to start. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 15.
3. Hamstring “T” Curl
Place your forearms on the back of a chair, elbows out, and rest your head on your arms. Raise your left leg behind you to hip height, right knee slightly bent. Slowly bend your left knee, bringing your heel toward your butt. Slowly return to start. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 15, then switch sides and repeat.
Stand with your feet wider than hip width and hold a pair of dumbbells in front of you, elbows slightly bent, palms facing each other; lean your torso forward. Rotate to the right as you raise your right arm toward the ceiling. Return to start. Repeat to the left, and keep alternating for 20 total reps.
