Below you have some ideas of moves you can do. I followed the Body Coach, Joe Wicks here.
- 1. Sumo squat pulse
- 2. Bridge position press
- 3. Hammer curl to overhead press
- 4. Lunges
- 5. Mountain climbers
- 1. Climb the rope
- 2. Squats
Slowly down, faster up- but still feel it and no swinging.
Use a weight that’s heavy enough so you can do 20 seconds on and then rest for 10 seconds and repeat for 4 minutes in total.
Do 2 sets.
That’s 8 minutes!
Let’s do some weight training – hummer curls!
Remember- I always warm-up and cool down before and after any exercises!
Read on below and you will understand why I go on about stretching as it’s so important when you have pain or have had an accident to get your body to work again.
I get that! ❤️
I have a painful shoulder and a wobbly hip and a bit more.
Its age and old accidents- car accident, banana skin, biking accidents, skiing accidents and so on…
Yes, I did slip on a day banana skin the day before my Fashion Exam in Paris many years ago. 🤸♂️I went to the hospital in the ambulance 🚑 and there the Parisien doctors 👨⚕️told me it was nothing and sent me home with some crutches and a Good Luck. I lived 5 flights up with no lift! 🏢
I had no other option than to get up and down and take my yearly exam. Youth has amazing resilience. 🐣👩
Back in Sweden, som weeks later I went to the hospital as I was still hobbling with crutches and got another Xray. I had broken the left ankle 🦵🏻 but it was now 1/2 healed back again and they didn’t want to break it up to fix it as it could cause more damage…
✅What’s the conclusion here? Well, back in the days- one should not have gone to a French hospital but to an American one in Paris- learned that the hard way.
Some years earlier- I was hit by a car in central Stockholm, Sweden, as I walked straight out on Sveavagen as the shop I was going to buy some fabric for a ball gown 💃🕺for a party some days later, was closed. I put on my walkman! – its that long time ago! and looked right and left and walked out- and I didn’t see not hear the car coming towards me.
I remember flying out- up in the air, and I also saw a green Volvo 🚛coming towards me. I realised that IF I didn’t change my direction mid-air I would be run over.
Thank god for self-defence training, that I had done for some months, and know how to fall and land. I had no idea that it would be that useful!
I was laying there in the rain in November in Stockholm,⛈☔️ not fun! with cars switching 🚗🚘on each side off me until some people dragged me into a nearby hairdresser and called an ambulance and disappeared! 🤦♀️as one is not allowed to move someone if they might damage their back.
Anyway – I didn’t and I was happy not to be laying in the middle of a road where everybody drove like mad.
After that I did have some issues with my left hip and leg, but nothing that stopped me from exercising. 🚀👊💪
If I don’t exercise I become stiff like a pole and its much harder to handle my old accidents.
So, exercise is not just great and paramount for your heart and for your mind and wellbeing but also for how you move and for your joints- how your muscles can move and work. ❤️
Share below how you cope and how you plan your exercise and get on with it even when you sometimes feel like the pain is a good excuse for not doing anything but sitting still. 🍫🍗📺
Let’s get moving! 🏃🏽♀️🏃🏻♂️
And as always,
Let’s not be average- lets chose to be extraordinary!
Start by doing something that makes you feel successful and full of joy start positive and set the day!
