Sweat It Out Saturday #AToZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z


 

No one ever said getting an awesome, healthy body was easy—that is why the word work is thee in workout.

 

 

 

Make sweat your best accessory. Work hard and sweat harder. And be ready to get your wishes granted. Be active. Be fit and healthy.S for Sweat. Get ready to have a Sweaty Saturday.

 

We are nearing the completion of the month and the challenge. I never said it will going to be easy, but it will be totally worth it. Don’t stay still and let the weekend pass by. Move your butt and sweat it out with me. Come on, we don’t have many days left. Cover the days you missed till now.

 

Slow Squat + Hooks

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Slowly get down into a squat and slowly come back up. Slow and controlled. Swing those arms forming a hook the entire time. Make sure your elbows come straight from your sides.  Focus on getting a controlled and a strong swing. Keep the shoulders contracted.

Start with 45 seconds.  Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. This is a great cardio workout. It works on your core, chest, biceps, triceps, thighs. Keep all these muscles contracted the entire time.

Side Squat + Knee

Stand straight with your hands at the back of your head. Take out a side squat with your right leg. Then drive that right knee up to the left elbow and go back to that side squat position. Come back up and stand. Switch side. Now bring the left leg to the side, drive that left knee up to the right elbow. Keep altering back and forth.

Repeat for 50 seconds. Make sure to bring the knees as high as you possibly can. Keeping a low squat is effective.

Side Star Dips

Get into a full plank position. Now drop your hip to the right side and at the same time extend the left hand up. Right hand and shoulder should be perpendicular to the ground. Get back to full plank. Switch side. Drop the opposite hip to the left side while the right hand will go up.

Repeat for 50 seconds. You need to keep the lower back and abdominal muscles tensed for the support. Keep the abs contracted the entire time.  Whenever you come to side star position make sure the hand and shoulders are perpendicular to the ground.

It works on your abs and obliques and gives you a lean toned stomach. Try to get as much range of motion as possible. Make the movement slow and controlled.

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.

Saturday Bonus

Here are three more workouts if you think above three are a bit tough for you. Try these three then go for the above. I will keep it short and simple. Just do it.

Scissor Kicks

Lie on your back. Raise both legs up and move like a scissor. Cut the fat peeps.

Squat Jacks

Already heard about and even did some jumping jacks. Right? Nothing fancy. Just get into a squat and do the jack. Simple. Isn’t it??

Single Leg Lateral Hops

Let me take you to your good old childhood days. Remember hopscotch ??  Loved it ?? (I’m afraid not anymore) Start jumping left to right. Switch leg. Repeat. I suggest using your mobile as the marker. 😛

      

 

 

Tip of the day

Sounds like a pretty solid recipe for success. Isn’t it ??

 

 

P.S –

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.

    For the sake of my love handles and gift of motherhood tummy, I will give them a try Anami. Slow Squat + Hooks and Side Squat + Knee, I gaurantee, I will do. The percentage of guarantee however is on weaker side for rest. Will need a lot of courage to undertake them. Hahaha!
    Good ones…real challenging ones!
