Fitolution #1

Today’s the 1st day of the Fitolution . . .

EXERCISE:  

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are strength days so stick to your strength routine. Make sure it’s at least 30 minutes of strength training.

BONUS EXERCISE:

DEADLIFT – Bar or Dumbbells 
(Full Body Integrated)

Stand behind the barbell (or grab 2 dumbbells) with the feet about shoulder-width apart, the toes slightly rotated out, and the shins almost touching the bar. Sit back into the hips slightly while keeping a straight back so that the chest is lifted upward, and bend forward to grip the bar in an over-under grip with one palm facing up and the other facing down. Squeeze the bar in the hands and sink back onto the hips while pressing the feet into the floor. Keeping the back flat, push the hips forward to move to standing position. Finish standing in a tall position with the shoulders pulled back and the legs straight. Return to the starting position by shifting the weight back into the hips and keep the back straight while allowing the knees to bend. When this movement is done properly, the glutes and the back of the thighs should feel the work, NOT the back.

Let’s do some butt lifting

Hello,

I always tease my clients when they are performing a deadlift or leaping lunges that they are “lifting their butts without the surgery”.  I didn’t realize there was an exercise referred to as  the “non-surgical butt lift”.  Ha!

Low & behold it’s not the deadlift or leaping lunges but is a single leg deadlift.  Therefore, I started incorporating that move into workouts.
