Get Ready for the Weekend

The weekend is already upon us. Starting today in addition to your ad exercises (3 sets of 10) and push-ups (3 sets of 15), I want you to begin doing 3 sets of 10 squats.

Doing squats will encourage better balance throughout your life.

Proper form: Keep feet shoulder width apart. Bend your knees keeping them over your ankles, as if you are sitting back into a chair. Exhale on the way down, inhale on the way up. Focus on squeezing your rear when you come up.

I love doing squats. They can be done right by your office chair at work or during your favorite television show.

One more FITting it in tip: while you are on a phone call, find a blank wall and perform a wall sit. Thighs should be parallel to the floor, knees bent above the ankle. See how long you can stay there. You just might surprise yourself!

See you on Monday for another Motivation Monday.
