Wow, it’s the middle of June already? Does time fly or what? Last week we discussed Olympic lifts/exercises and the importance of proper form and technique. By perfecting these lifts, your technique for easier lifts will be much better. This week we will be taking a trip down Core Stability Blvd.!
Wedding Season Week 7:
“If you think you can or think you can’t; you’re right!!”
Tip: Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and during your workout. Try to avoid sugary sports drinks or high sugar/carbohydrate fruit drinks. These drinks are only necessary when you are working out for extended amounts of time and your electrolytes are depleted, otherwise water is the only necessary fluid to put into your body. Try to intake 80 to 100 ounces a day if you exercise at a moderate to high intensity level.
Week 7 Wedding Fitness Plan (Core Stability Blvd):
Core stability is absolutely huge. I can’t emphasize this enough. Every thing begins and ends with a strong and stable core. I have covered the basics about the core in a previous article so I am not going to go into much detail, but the core consists of your entire front and back sides; not just your abdominal muscles.
Below are my favorite core stability exercises and I recommend performing two or three sets of 20 to 30 repetitions or hold each position for at least 30 seconds if required. Remember to get your cardio (30-60 minutes) in as well. Have fun!
