Fitness challenge ~ abs, arms and legs

Hey there!

A little bit sore? Don't worry, sore muscles mean it's working.

I'm so glad you are back!

Today we are going to focus on our legs and arms. Keep it up!

Exercise descriptions

Side Skaters  

Start in a small squat. Jump sideways to the right, landing on your right leg. Bring your left leg behind your right ankle and extend it. Reverse direction by jumping to the left with your left leg. Repeat.

Chair pose to tip toes

Begin to sit back into a squat and hold once your knees are at a 90 degree angle, parallel to the floor. Focus on keeping your knees pointing forward in alignment with your feet, but not in front of your toes. Lift yourself up on your toes, then lower your heels back on the floor. Repeat.  

Mountain climbers

Begin in a full plank position. Bring one knee up to your chest. Explosively reverse the positions of your legs, extending the bent leg until the leg is straight and supported by the toe, and bringing the other foot up under your hips. Repeat as fast as possible.

Triceps dips

Legs bent and feet placed about hip width apart on the floor. Straighten your arms, then slowly bend at your elbows and lower your upper body down toward the floor until your arms are at about a 90-degree angle. Once you reach the bottom of the movement, slowly press off with your hands, and push yourself straight back up to the starting position. Repeat.

Sphinx plank to full plank

Start in a plank position with feet and arms shoulder width apart. Press one hand hard into the floor to straighten your arm following with the other hand to raise yourself into a push up position. Go back down into a plank, one arm at a time. Repeat.
