Sneak peek at the exercises from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge
1. Plank with ball roll
Starting position. Start in a plank position with feet spread wide apart and arms directly underneath shoulders. Place a ball under your right hand. Keep your upper body strong and engage your core, while keeping your back straight.
Execution. Engage your core by pulling your belly button toward your spine and roll the ball over to your left, cupping the ball with your left hand and placing your right hand down onto the mat. Next, roll the ball over to your right hand again, keeping your core and lower back strong and stable as you lower your left arm to the floor and return to starting position. Repeat exercise.
2. Dancing jacks
Starting position. Begin by standing tall with your feet together
and your arms beside you. Engage your core muscles to keep your upper body tall.
Execution. Breathe in, bend through your knees then exhale and jump your legs out to the side while simultaneously extending your arms out to your sides. Jump your feet and arms back to the centre and then bend your knees to a crouching position, placing your hands flat on the floor in front of you. Raise your hands off the floor and extend your legs to return back to the start position. Repeat this exercise and breathe continuously through the movement.
3. Full v lift
Starting position. Lie flat on your back with palms facing downward and fingers facing forward. Bend your knees and lift your legs straight up in the air, keeping your lower back firmly planted on the floor. Extend your knees and engage core muscles.
Execution. Exhale and gently lift your shoulders off the floor, reaching up toward the ceiling for 1-2 seconds. Inhale and slowly roll down through your spine to starting position, keeping your lower back flat on the floor. Repeat exercise, then bend knees and pull them in toward you as you return your feet to the floor.
4. Pilates knee stand
Starting position. Stand on your left knee and straighten your right leg to the right side of your body. Place your left hand on a block (or large book) beside you so that your upper body bends to the left side. Keep your elbow slightly bent. Push your hips forward so that your whole body is in alignment.
Execution. Inhale and lift your right leg up off the mat and at the same time lift your right arm up overhead. Bring your arm and leg back down and exhale. Repeat on other side.
With consistency, determination and motivation (not to mention following your healthy meal plan), YOU WILL BE ABLE to achieve that flatter tummy you have longed for.
Just remember, weight loss and muscle development isn’t a race! Stick to your goals and believe in YOURSELF….You’ll get there ladies! All you have to do…is START your journey.
