Fitness First – Fitness Warrior

Hello Acadiana, we have a full body, fat blasting, and metabolism boosting workout for you that you can do right in the comfort of your own home. No equipment need!

We will start with alternating straight leg lifts for abdominal strength. Raise one leg up into air, keeping knee straight. Keep abdominals contracted throughout the movement; do NOT allow back to arch off the floor. Alternate legs.

Next we will build a strong foundation with Sumo squats. Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Squat down bending knees, hips and ankles. Knees should bend outward to a 90 degree.

Our next calorie burning exercise is the forward lunge.  Take a large step directly in front of you. As you bend achieve a 90 degree angle at both rear and front knees while keeping torso perpendicular to floor.

Next we will continue to keep our metabolism revving by performing jumping jacks for time.  Make sure you minimal foot to ground contact time.

We continue with pushups for upper body strength.  Remember to keep abdominals tight and back straight through the exercise.

Supermans are next for good core strengthening.  Lie face down. Keep abdominals contracted.  Lift left arm and right leg simultaneously. Then lift right arm and left leg. Then lift both arms and legs.

Next cool down and increase flexibility and recovery with seated toe touch stretches. Sit with knees slightly bent, bend at the hips, breathe normally, and hold.

Next is a standing Quad stretch. Stand with your back straight,

Bend one knee and hold foot behind buttocks with same side hand while knees remain in line with one another. Hold and breathe normally.
