You know I love to spice things up with … my Fitness CLASS! Haha. But jokes aside, I make my class try out Crazy Cotter combinations at least once week. It keeps us all on our toes and challenging our bodies. Some are hit and some are miss, but at least we’re trying it!
Which leaves me today. I’ve recruited a ton of FIT FRIENDS to share their favorite LATEST and GREATIST fitness moves.
Get ready, you’ll want to try these. I’d start off trying 10-15 reps of each 3x through or I’d time the exercise, maybe 30 secs to a 1 minute (2-3x).
Kindal’s boat pose with Kettle Bell!
My push press to ninja tuck (a favorite to get HR up).
Want more balance work? Try my single leg squat, curl, and mountain climber.
Katie’s awesome TRX move!
Kristin’s Killer 4 move Bosu series! Ouch this look hard, but good!
Kindal’s Donkey Burpees –> these are a favorite of mine!
But what about new workout styles? I’ve got that covered too!
Kaila’s Mix it UP 1000 rep workout
Or how about UTLIZING the ROWING machine?! I love this one.
And let’s not forget TECHNNIQUE!
Laura’s Fulls and Partials –> her instructions from blog below
These are really great for moving past “sticking” points where the weight feels heaviest. You can move past the sticky point because the that part of the muscle group is exhausted, but that doesn’t mean all ares of that muscle group are exhausted. Partials allow you to essentially work beyond failure by working in smaller ranges of motion. Perform 10 full reps of a movement, followed by 10 half reps. Do 1st and 3rd sets on the bottom half, and the 2nd and 4th on the top half.
Ex Standing Leg Curls- Start with a lighter weight, as this machine can put some strain on the knees. Adjust the pads so that they are in a comfortable position around the ankle – you don’t want the pads too high up the calf. Grasp the support handles, then lift the pad upward as far as it will go toward the butt. Lift and lower the leg in a controlled manner to complete one full rep.
Note: You can perform this exercise on a lying leg curl machine too.
Well, what will you try first?
Have any new moves? Do tell! I’ll be sure to do this series again if we get more submissions!
