HANDSTAND PROGRESSIONS For anyone working on their handstands give this move a try. When doing the donkey kick go for control > height. Engage the core and make the landing as soft as you can. Then flow through 😁🙏🏻
STRENGTH AND STRETCH. 🔥 Flying high in Hawaii 😁 Try mixing your power moves with some flexibility challenges as well. One of my goals this year is to focus more on my weaknesses, while maintaining my strengths. To do this, I am incorporating more stretching into my workouts...because I get wayyyyy too bored just from stretching alone. At the end of the day go with your own flow and challenge your body in ways it has not seen before. 🔥✊🏼
ARMS and CORE FLOW 🔥 Just when you thought tricep pushups on their own were tough, wait til you try this 👆🏻 This flow helps with muscular endurance by engaging all the muscles of the core while building that upper body tricep and shoulder strength... you will be sore! Transition from downward dog: - flow to tricep push up - return to downward dog - single leg lift and flow through to opposite elbow with a straight leg - return to downward dog with same leg lift - back to downward dog to repeat the sequence on the opposite side Try to do this as many times as you can without breaking the flow for 30 seconds ☀️
UPPER BODY STRENGTH/NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED: This one is more difficult than it looks, but definitely a good move if you’re working on a handstand. Flow through bear crawl position to plank, to tricep pushup, then donkey kick up in the air and repeat for 30 seconds. Focus on form, not the height of your legs in the donkey kick (the higher and more controlled the better, but it comes with strength)
SOUND ON FOR TROPICAL VIBES 😁 First day waking up to this view in Maui ~ we decided on moves that incorporated a mix of power and control to get the heart rate up while also stretching the body and muscles. Here’s one to try anywhere! Starting in a runner’s lunge: - Stretch upper body to the forward leg - Flow back through to straight arm plank - Four mountain climbers + two tricep pushups - Alternate sides! More to come soon 🤙🏼
Don’t forget your your hip abductor exercises! . Here is an advanced one, however check out previous posts for some different variations. Easiest one to perform is laying on your side and just raising your leg. 👌🏼 . Whichever one you choose, just get MOVING! 🤘🏼
Most overlooked piece of exercise equipment?! . Resistance bands!!! . They can go with you anywhere and are super versatile for every type of exercise! . Give this one a try to burn those triceps and legs. 🔥
To go where no one has gone, you have to try things no one is trying. . When it comes to fitness the only routine I enjoy is overall movement. Besides that I’m constantly finding ways to challenge myself and learn more about my body and what it can do. I highly recommend you embrace the same mentality. . You don’t need equalizers to do this you can find a ledge or similar object to practice on. Start off just by holding a side plank and progress at your own pace. Good luck!
How can you make your plank a little more intense?? . 1. Loop a resistance band around your ankles 2. Commandos 3. Plank jacks 4. Combine all of the above . Start with the resistance band around your ankles and alternate toe taps left and right to engage the glutes. Repeat for 45 sec and then add the rest! 🔥
RESISTANCE BAND ONLY - side glute burner 🔥 . 1. Place the resistance band over your thighs (or shins) . 2. Come down onto your side in the fetal position with knees slightly in front of hips . 3. Come down to mat and rest on bottom arm OR raise up on elbow and press opposite palm into the ground in front of stomach . 🔥 Lower and lift the top leg, keeping a 90 degree angle . 🔥Knee-Toe taps - alternate between knee and toe taps on bottom knee . 🔥Extend top leg and pulse . 🔥Keep top leg extended and HOLD
RESISTANCE BAND ONLY . Fire up the core by placing a resistance band around the feet and extending the legs .. Start from table top position and extend one leg at a time to a 45 degree angle, keeping the other leg at 90 . Then progress to bicycles to get the obliques!
Always find new ways to challenge yourself. 🙏🏻 . Try this stability/core/arm exercise to push yourself to the next level. . 30-60 seconds on, 10-30 seconds off.
Med ball push-up variation. . 3-5 sets of 10 🔥

Make balance one of your goals in the new year! . Balance, stability, and mobility typically are an afterthought for most people looking to lose weight or build muscle.

In life, business, and fitness...BALANCE is key 🔑.
