Today’s 43 looks deceptively simple!!! The move is primarily geared to work your rotator cuff but after about 20 reps your entire arm will start to feel the burn!!
Start by laying on your side with a light weight (I used 5 pounds) in your top hand.
Rotate your arm about 90 degrees, keeping your elbow tight to your body.
See how simple it looks?! Try some!!! And don’t forget to work both sides!
Sometimes the littlest moves have the biggest benefits!!!
Today I did a favorite workout – Turbo Fire – Fire 55. This workout is almost an hour (55 minutes) of fast paced cardio and it is super fun every single time!!!
There are so many reasons that people exercise – some people do it only because they feel like they have to or that they should, some people do it to try and be skinny – There are some who exercise not to be skinny but to lose weight – Many people exercise or workout because they are training for something – a race, a competition of some sort, a particular event – And there are people who exercise just to become more fit – The reason people exercise often affects the enjoyment that they actually get from working out. When the goal is to be skinny or lose weight and results aren’t immediate it can be very frustrating.
Working out because you are training for something can take away some of the fun of exercising especially if you don’t perform exactly the way you had hoped to. And, following a specific training plan sometimes becomes monotonous and saps all the joy and love of the exercise.
Some people workout just because they love the way it makes them feel – the release of endorphins after a hard workout is worth the struggles and temporary pain!!! That feeling of pushing yourself to your very limit and then just going a little bit further is such an amazing thing! And getting a good sweat on is awesome!!!
I work out because I love it. I love knowing that there is very little that I can’t do if I just put my mind to it. Pushing myself to the breaking point is the way I keep challenging myself to become the very best form of me that I can be.
So – why do you workout?
Happy Wednesday and Happy Exercising!!!
