Who else gets bored of the same ol’ compound exercises after a while? 🙋🏻♀️ i know i do! It’s important to switch up your workouts to your prevent plateau and adaptation.
✨Here are some of my current push-up variations to add to your chest day! Or, you can do these at home, too. —
✔️ Medicine Ball Push Up: start in push-up position keeping a neutral spine. Place one hand on medicine ball while the other remains on the floor. Feet stance wide to assist with stability. Keep your body straight when descending, don’t let your chest touch the floor. Push back up to full arm extension and repeat on the other side.
✔️Decline Push-up w/ Stability Ball : Place hands flat on the floor, shoulder width with stability ball behind you. Place toes or shin on ball and get into push-up position with a neutral spine. Keep head aligned with your back. Lower your body to the floor, push back up, repeat. (You can also rest your toes on an ottoman or chair if you don’t have a stability ball at home)
✔️Decline Push-Up w/ Ab Crunch: for an added challenge, repeat instructions for decline stability ball push-up, but when you come back up to full arm extension, being your knees in for an abdominal crunch, and back out to straight. ✔️Push-Up Knee Twist: One of my favorites! Not only does it hit upper body but also your abs and obliques! At the top of a standard push-up rep, brace your core and bend one knee 90 degrees and being towards your opposing elbow. Return to starting position and repeat for each side.
Do each exercise for 10 reps, 4 sets each! 💪🏼💪🏼
Glute check! I have been changing up my normal workout routine, adding a lot more cardio work in order to lean out a little bit for the upcoming summer months. It’s a tricky thing...leaning out without losing all the muscle I have gained but just checked my stats today at the gym and my muscle mass has gone up by 1 point and my total body fat has decreased by 1 as well, so it looks like I’m on the right track! Yay! Slow and steady👍💪✌️

These powerful greens ⛰ tru.juice.gr 💪🏼have been crucial after nearly 48-hours of travel and an epic 3-days so far of our first #MTNFITOMAN Experience. Jam-packing us full of nutrients everyday! ⛰💪🏼🇴🇲
Basic Movement and stability should always come before intensity or volume. Spend time grooving various key positions before chasing load or reps and don’t be afraid to revisit patterns time and time again. This is Gill’s first ever counterbalanced squat ....a couple of cues and she’s knocking out a pretty good effort and in time we can progressively load her or advance her to a more technical squat.
