Fitspo Friday is back! Ready for some workout motivation and my favorite workout of the week? I'm excited the weekend is finally here so I can spend some time outdoors. The weather has been great lately, so I hope it's nice where you are, too.
FITSPO: Short for Fitness-Based Inspiration. Images of active, strong, and fit women that promote proper exercise and diet.
I post this definition every week as a reminder that this is a place for positive + healthy inspiration. I try not to promote images that are unrealistic or that would require surgery to achieve. Fitness is all about consistently eating right, working out, and — most importantly — feeling and being healthy!
My favorite workout this week is a balancing reverse lunge done on the stability ball. To begin, place your foot behind you, then lift your right foot and place your toes on the top center of the ball. Keep your core engaged throughout the exercise and place your hands on your hips for balance, if needed. Lunge with your left knee and extend your right leg backwards, letting the ball roll backwards to complete the lunge position. Use your left thigh and core to pull your body back into the starting position to complete one rep. Aim for 2 to 3 sets of 15 reps with each leg. You can hold dumbbells in your hands to make it more difficult.
Here's a great stability ball from Target that actually has workouts printed on the side of the ball! It comes with a workout DVD, too.
