You can literally do this with your eyes closed, though it is not recommended. Thumbnail jokes are funny.
For real though. We can get stabilized with a wall or if you have too much art hanging on your walls simply close a door and use it work our chest, hips and buns.
Use what you got! Get in motion and make it a beautiful day.
Pump it out, one step at a time!
Always trying to side step responsibility and push things away. Sound familiar? I hope not! Showing up today for my wife, colleagues, clients, family and friends may take some extra effort every now and then but we shouldn't seek to avoid people or push them away with our expectations and attitude. This is not a learn to love moment. It is taking a moment to learn to recognize the how and why I think it would be easier to side-step and push away. Usually fear pops up. Sometimes annoyance because people aren't doing what I would rather them do or how I would rather them do it.
That's on me. And for me it is a daily necessity to get in motion and take action. So if I am thinking about side-stepping and pushing away why not make to my benefit! Band up the feet for extra glute activation and pick up a plate...of weight and get to stepping and pressing. With each step, back and forth keep the core tight breathing through the motions not with the rep. Steady in and steady out.
If we take action to improve our physical well being our mental well being has a better chance of staying positive. Get in motion and make it a beautiful day!
Some of my clients like to up their balance game along with their leg strength. Using a glider we started messing with a single leg squat and hip circle. Opening up the hips, strengthening the glutes and getting in motion.
The move also comes in handy if you have to move your cat out of the way. Also it may give you the confidence to pet your pet with your foot. Stabilizing on one leg and getting a big ol' belly scratch in. I like practical exercises for everyday use!
Make it a beautiful day...
