Today's EMOM was easy breezy. 20 minute timer. 5 burpees. 5 kettlebell swings. Every minute on the minute - 5 burpees, 5 kettlebell swings. Easy breezy.
I'm on a 20 minute kick this week. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
Picking three to get after is easy. Performing at your peak for the entire time, through each set, with each rep takes focus and determination. You can rock it out yo! I went after the Chin Up, Push Press and Press Up with all the vim and vigor I could muster for 20 minutes. Set a timer or set a rep goal and get to work. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day.
Some times you have too many balls in the air and your hands are tied. No need to sweat under pressure. Keep a steady breath and give the primary ball a little squeeze, keeping your focus on tension that matters. Engaging the inside of the legs is easy breezy with a squishy ball, applying constant pressure with those muscles that don’t usually get any love. Anchor the resistance band to put your lats to work. Ankle to knees without the need for your back to miss a beat. Magic!
Put it to the side. Who's side are you on? Front and back and side to side. Choose sides. Pick a side. An inside job. Fries on the...
Keep it in front of you. Your goal for today. Your purpose for today. Your dream for today. Keep that in front of you. Move it forward bit by bit today. Continue to take action without gazing too far out on the horizon.
Shore up those sides in the mix today as well. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
We can in fact take that leap of faith. We are surrounded by family and friends and fellows and folks that want us to succeed. They are willing our success into existence and with our persistence we can make it so. Each day is a chance to strive for better. Each day is a leap of faith. We can also jump, because it's fun. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
sing Van Halen, maybe let the Pointer Sisters guide your feet. No matter do not resist the urge to jump while you get jacked. Jumping Jacks to warm up and between sets to keep the heart hopping is wonderful way to widen your workouts.
So go ahead and JUMP! Jump for your Love...yeah. you get it - in motion and make it a beautiful day!
You want to row, curl and fly your way into the day? Why not. I am using a Nike Medium Resistance Band to create some muscle tension on my lats, biceps and rear delts. Keeping our hips low with our upper back and neck supported on the stability ball, feet hip-width apart we can pull our way into a hey! hey! hey! triple threat kind of day.
Maintaining proper form in foundational movements, but performing them from a different perspective has helped me push past or through the doldrums and plateaus of the traditional stand and deliver techniques.
Get in motion and make it a beautiful day. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day.
Because everything is coming at us from a different point of view at the moment, I could not resist the urge to get after some Squat Presses from a different...angle. As if there was not enough instability in our life, why not add a bit more with a stability ball. We anchor the resistance bands with a dumbbell, we anchor the dumbbell with our feet and we get after this diagonal disco to mix up a full body mambo with a different point of view.
Mixing metaphors and Motion to make it a beautiful day!
