In fitness, there are no shortcuts. It involves immense discipline and hard work.
So do not take shortcuts. Push yourself into discipline, and enjoy that feeling of achievement. Trust me that feeling is worth that hard work and sweating. So go on do something for your own self.
Broad Jump + 2 Jump squats
Stand upright with feet shoulder width apart and hands on your sides. Take a deep squat and jump up as hard as you can and come back to squat position. This is a jump squat. This is it ?? NO. This is just a part of what you are going to do today. Put a mat. Or just take a nice long jump, two jump squats, turn around, and jump back, two jump squats and turn around. Again take a jump and two jump squats. Repeat for 45 seconds
Start with 45 seconds. Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. Make sure you take a long jump as long as you can and as hard over jump squat as you possibly can.
Do I have to tell you on what muscles this works on? 😛 Well this is a full body workout and it mainly works on your butt and abs. Make sure to take proper squats and do not stress the knees. Remember to make that move in a controlled manner. Do not yank while jumping or it may hurt your spine. So please do it properly.
When can you do ?? Best time for any workout is in the morning. You can also do in evening after at least 4 hours of a heavy meal. Never perform any workout on a full stomach.
The Body part of the day – J
A joint is a connection between two bones. Joints and their surrounding structures allow you to bend your elbows and knees, bend your back, turn your head, and wave your fingers to say bye-bye. So what are you going to do to for them? You don’t have to do much. Just some simple things to remember.
- Move those joints.
- Do some wrist rolls, shoulder rolls, finger squeeze.
- Read my post about ankle rolls and arm rolls here.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Include calcium in your diet.
- Perfect your posture.
- Know your limit. Do not overdo.
Tip of the day
He who enjoys good health is rich, though he knows it not. So be rich. Not just monetarily but also physically and mentally. You can do it. Trust yourself. Trust power of nature.
These are just single workouts. Warm up and cool down are not included in this. Know that your body has limits and you should respect it. Do only as much as your body allows you. Little pain is absolutely normal as the muscles stretch, but if you feel more pain then you are doing something wrong. Stop doing it and consult a doctor if necessary. I am not a personal trainer, this is meant to be the inspiration for you as a way to break workout boredom.
