Training for life. Not just a race.

Day 4 Getting in Shape with Pinterest

Today I am doing an all over body workout. I found this one today. It looks like a tough one. I can not wait till my son goes to bed for me to do this one. With basically everyone in my family being sick, everyone has a messed up sleep pattern, including my son. I repined this from Katherine and it is originally from Back On Pointe‘s tumblr page. My “Dancers Legs” workout on Day 1 is also from Back On Pointe. You can find it and others on my Pinterest fitness board.

All over body weight workout

I had to do a quick internet search. I was not sure what some of these were. Just click on the name to go to an explanation of what they are.

Full Bridge– I took this to be a 1 minute bridge. ***I had to stop at 0:30 and then after a second I did the remaining 0:30

Short Bridges- No link here. Your guess is as good as mine. I went up and down while keeping good form for 15 reps.

Bird-Dogs– For this one all the examples had you hold the pose for several seconds. Since the work out here says 20 bird-dogs, I did 20 bird-dogs on each side, holding the pose for 3 seconds before switching sides. So for example I held up my right arm/left leg for 3 seconds, then the left arm/right leg for 3 seconds and then back to the right arm/left leg for 3 seconds and on and on like so until I did 20 on each side. A total of 40.

Oblique crunches– I was not going to look this up originally. I thought I knew what these were but I was wrong. This video first caught my eye because I saw some nice abs on the row of videos on the right side of the screen. Then I saw it was about oblique crunches. Needless to say, I watched the video and got to watch some nice eye candy show me how I have been doing these crunches wrong the whole time. Its not ever your traditional “crunch” at all. Its closer to a side plank than a crunch.

My warm up and cool down will be some of the easier poses from my favorite yoga workout.
