Fitolution Day #19. Can you believe it? Feels good don’t it? You can admit it. I won’t tell anyone. [fingers crossed behind back]
Saturdays are cardio days so stick to your cardio routine. Make sure it’s at least 30 minutes of walking, running, elliptical, biking, rowing, dancing, etc. Make sure to warm-up properly.
Medicine balls, a staple item in most gyms, are an easy-to-use, low-cost fitness tool that serves many purposes. From the development of power, coordination, mobility and core strength to rehabilitation benefits and “big bang for your buck” calorie burn, it’s no surprise that medicine balls are used in a wide range of workouts.

Targeted Body Parts: Glutes, Hip, Core
Hold the ball at your chest and stand with your feet together. Take a wide step forward with your left foot and lower into a lunge. As you lower, pass the medicine ball from your right hand to your left under your left thigh. Press through your left heel to quickly return to standing, grabbing onto the ball with both hands. Repeat on the other side. That’s one rep.
20 reps for 3 sets.
Modification: Less reps and lighter medicine ball or dumbbell.
