Workout Challenge

Happy Thursday to you!

It is almost Friday, and I think everyone can shout a happy "Yay!" for the weekend!
To inspire you this weekend I am giving you a fun Saturday workout challenge. It can be done at the gym or at home, if you have some weights handy.

WARMUP

First, the most important part of the workout is to warmup for 5-7 min. This can include walking/jogging on the treadmill, doing a minute or two of jump rope, jumping jacks. Then include some dynamic stretching. This could be a series butt-kicks, high knees, walking plank, bear crawl, walking toe-touches, arm circles, etc. Make sure you have moved every part of your body to prepare for the workout.

WORKOUT 
Please use proper form. If you are unsure of what an exercise looks like, check out Youtube or www.exrx.net.  Try this with a partner for added accountability and fun!
Enjoy!!
