Monday 10 Minutes Moves

How are you doing with the 10 minutes moves? I occasionally get an email -usually bemoaning planks- but for the most part I’m not sure if this is helpful to you or not.

Let me know.

So this week, I’m going to encourage you to head to outdoors for a breath of fresh air while we’re getting our bodies moving. Remember each move can be done for 1 minute throughout the day, or some of these can be done for 10 minutes straight.

Monday: Windmills.
Stand with your legs wide and your arms straight out to the side. Reach one arm trying to touch the opposite foot. Come back up. Alternate arms.

Tuesday: Standing High Knees. Standing tall, feet hip width apart, arms relaxed at your side. Bring your knee up, grab it with your hands and pull lightly toward toward your chest. Balance briefly on the support leg before returning foot to floor. Alternate legs.

Wednesday: Incline pushups.
If you’re outside try doing this using a deck railing; inside a counter edge or stable table top. Stand far enough away from the surface that the edge is just out of reach; take a push-up position using the edge of the surface. Drop into the edge keeping your feet on the ground. Feel the stretch through your calves and across the chest. Then push up to the incline position again.

Thursday:Dance. Find whatever music gets you moving and move.  Dance like nobody’s watching… cause they aren’t.

Friday: Prisoner Squats. Place your hands behind your head, keep your back firm and straight and do 10 squats.

  1. Hi there,
    These exercises sound great but to be honest…I haven’t been doing them. I just need to put aside that 10 minutes and DECIDE to do them. Thanks for keeping us going.
