Quickie Workout #58

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Remember to go for QUALITY over quantity. If you are unclear what the exercise is I am describing, please look for a video or arrange for an in-person tutorial with me.

Please consult your doctor before engaging on any fitness regime.

Don't forget to breathe! Please email me if you want tips on how to make the quickies easier or more challenging (mollie@ptmollie.com)

Warm up- ~3 min jog/run until you start to sweat a little
1 min each leg- 1 legged squat (sit back as if you have twisted your ankle and are sitting into a seat)                     
1 min- Push/press ups against wall or sturdy counter top         
1 min- Stand in door frame and push hands out to side trying to make a letter T
1 min- Prisoner squats- stand with fingertips on ears. Squat down and jump up as high as you can, keeping hands on ears.             
1 min-  Triceps dips on sturdy (non-rolling!) chair or bench. To make more challenging, extend one leg for each dip.  Alternate legs.  Only use arms to push yourself up and down.                
1 min- Pretend to hit speed bag just above your head while hopping back and forth on both feet.  Get that heart rate up!
1 min each leg- Golf ball swings - Stand on 2 feet.  Try to touch floor or pick up a ball by standing on one foot and bringing other leg up behind you. (Imagine you are picking a golf ball out of a hole)     
1 min- Lateral raise- bring arms up to shoulder height then return to sides.  To make more challenging, hold a tin of soup or a bottle of water in each hand.
