Best Fitness Articles of the Week
Brought to you by Joshua Reed with Reed’s Wellness and Fitness Training
For the first time, I will be hosting the Best Fitness Articles of the Week via my website instead of to email subscribers only.
Can you believe another week has gone by and it is almost July? Wow! I can’t believe it.
Do you ever sit down and really think about just how fast time goes by? Are you living every second to your fullest potential? I got to thinking about time after having this conversation with a friend and client the other day after our session. As we get older, it just seems like time goes by faster and faster.
Then, I came across this video by Mike Vacanti on Facebook about Time. After watching this, I want you to really think about how much time you really have in the day. And then, I want you to ask yourself, “Do I really not have enough time in the day to exercise? To plan, prepare, and pack my meals? To make a plan?” or whatever it may be that you tell yourself you do not have enough time.
Think about it.
This Week’s Newsletter:
Are you taking part in the Spartan Race #Spartan30 Day Push-Up Challenge? Head over to my Facebook and YouTube Channel to see my daily variations of the push-up! They are getting tougher as the month progresses. Here is a video of yesterdays: Bird-Dog Push-Up
Workout of the Week:
Full Body Workout with an Exercise Plate
This is my first workout video posted. I tried to do some basic “fancy” video editing. 🙂 It is a work in progress–obviously. I hope you enjoy it!
If you are short on time or short on equipment, this is a great workout which targets the whole body. Perform each exercise for 10 repetitions. After you have completed the exercises, take a :60 second break and then repeat the circuit 3-5x.
Obtain a weight in which you can perform each exercise for 10 repetitions for 3-5 sets. Note: 45lbs plate shown in video.
• Squat with Pulse x 10 repetitions
• Close Grip Push-Up x 10 repetitions
• Lunge with Plate Overhead x 10 repetitions each side
• Weighted Plank x :30 to :60 seconds
• Single Leg Deadlift with Bentover Row x 10 repetitions each side
• Biceps Curl + Overhead Press + Triceps Extension x 10 repetitions
• Suitcase Carries (Pinched Grip) x 10 steps out, 10 steps back
