Here are some more fitness moves (some of my favourites) to add to your inventory. If you are interested in hearing about my first experience with crossfit then check out my personal blog katherine_t!!
Here they are (seriously give them a try)! Also- if you are looking for a delicious protein powder- try the Greens + Vegan double chocolate!! It’s delicious! and fairly cheap when you are replacing it for other meats.
Pushups with Ball At Legs
o Muscles Worked: Chest, Triceps.
Starting Position: Start standing behind the ball, place you midsection on the ball and roll forward until your hands reach the floor. To make it HARDER keep moving forward until your feet are on the ball. To make this EASIER move the ball closer to your hips. Have your hands just outside of your shoulders. Keep your body as straight as possible by contracting your core.
Action: Inhale and Lower your upper body by bending your knees to a 90 degree angle. Exhale and straighten arms back to the starting position.
Kneeling Roll Out With Ball
o Muscles Worked: ABS
Starting Position: Kneel in front of the ball. Place your hands on the top of the ball and take your feet off the ground. Bring your navel into your spine by flattening your body out. (At this point you should start to feel some tension in your abs).
Action: Your hands should not move on the bal. The motion comes from a pivot in your knees, bringing your hips forward and your chest dropiing down. Keep your spine in a neutral position without hyperextending your back. Once you are in your flattest position hold for 2 seconds and roll back up.
• Try for 2 sets of 12!
• Don’t do this exercise if you feel pain in your lower back.
One Arm Side Pushups
o Muscles Worked: Biceps, Triceps, Obliques
Starting Position: Lying on your right sie with the left palm flat on the floor in front of the shoulder with the elbow bent. Wrap the right arm around the rib cage. Bend the knees slightly.
Action: Exhale and using your left arm push your torso up until the arm is straight. Inhale and lower the upper body until the shoulder is about an inch from the floor. Complete your desired reps and switch to the other side!
• Keep hips and feet plated on the floor
• Keep shoulders away from ears
