Fit Culture: Indoor Workouts for the Autumn Season
By Zakia Webster
LCP!! It’s FITNESS WEEK yet again! Always so excited to bless you all!! Over time coaching many people through their fitness and nutrition goals I’ve discovered a trend for the busy millennial who doesn't have the time to get the gym, and wish they could. So I have come up with an at home workout that will cover all your body's needs and jumpstart your energy! READY…SET…LETS GO!
Before we get into it, keep in mind that if you’re a beginner I would like you to start at your own pace. If you have never done some of these workouts before…No PROBLEM! Even if you complete 1 or 2 repetitions, it’s a start. This is the goal for you beginners. For my more advanced peeps getting their fitness back, try to increase your repetitions or add weights to this regimen to increase your strength.
Now, let’s get down to FITNESS!
PUSH UPS- The perfect workout, no equipment needed and builds strength in all the places that matter. Tighten up your core, level out your balance on your feet and hands, keeping hands shoulder width apart and feet no more than 12 inches wide, or same distance from shoulder to shoulder.
SITUPS- have your knees bent and the balls of your feet on the ground. Place your hands either across your chest, or lightly place your hands behind your head. Be sure not to use your hands and head a leverage to push yourself up. You can damage your neck by straining a muscle. Sit up to where your elbows touch your thigh and TIGHTEN THAT CORE! (Use ball if you have one for added leverage to engage your core)
SUMO SQUATS- Gimme SUMO! (LOL). Place feet wider than shoulder width, squat down as if sitting in a chair, make sure back is straight and roll your hips back. Be sure your legs form a 90 degree angle when squatting.
HIGH KNEE SQUATS
HIGH KNEE SQUATS- GET THOSE LEGS UP AND TIGHTEN THAT CORE! Don’t be Shy! Place feet shoulder width apart. One knee at a time alternate raising legs to chest. Once again be sure to keep that Core tight.
I hope these workouts will help jumpstart your fitness while watching your favorite show #EMPIRE! lol or #HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER! In between commercials is perfect time to Get #FIT. I look forward to hear how you have tried and progressed! Please leave comments or suggestions or questions so I can better serve you.
