Static Lunge on a step

Change up your lunge … work harder, get more range of motion, tone and tighten your tush and thighs … simply by placing your front foot on a step! CLICK HERE to learn how! This is also a great exercise to incorporate into an outside walk in the park as an interval, find a curb or bench and do 10 static lunges per foot, aim for 3 to 5 sets during a half hour walk! Remember, the higher the step or the curb the more challenging the exercise!

weight watcherExercising and diet go hand and hand when you want to lose weight.  A simple rule of thumb is if you can reduce your daily calorie intake by just 500 calories a day through diet and exercise you will lose 1 pound a week.  It’s that simple!  Eliminate 1000 calories a day and you will lose 2 pounds per week.  Think about it – that comes out to 8 pounds a month which is GREAT and safe and sustainable.  When it comes to exercising the more you know the better the results.  First, always check with your doctor before beginning an exercise program.  Keep in mind the more you can increase your physical activity throughout your day the more calories you’ll burn.  Always begin every exercise session with an easy warm up with activities such as; walking or easy jogging for at least 8 to 10 minutes. This will slowly increase your heart rate, warm up your muscles and get the blood flowing to prepare your body for more strenuous exercise.  Finally, end each workout with an easy cool down and stretch routine.  Brand new to exercise, check out GetinShapeforFREE.net – it is a complete 6 week exercise program – to get you started!
