Taking yourself to the park or in the safety of your own home, LYMA gives you 5 targeted movements to work your full body and keep you in great condition whilst we deal with testing times. You won’t need any equipment, just some water and some energy that LYMA can supply. These moves also contain some real anti anxiety benefits and will prepare your body for the months ahead.
Repeat these movements over 4-5 sets:
1. SQUAT ROTATIONS
This move targets the glutes, legs and also your prowess with jump and twisting movements. Keeping soft on the landing, push through your heel on each rep to really hit your glutes and burn bodyfat at the same time. Try these alternating for 30 seconds. This ones a real challenge for your balance too.
2. DYNAMIC SIDE PLANK
This is a great move to really target your core and your obliques whilst also testing your balance. Engage your glutes and keep your abs tight. Try and complete the same amount of reps on each side. Try for 15 reps on each side.
3. GLUTE KICKBACKS
A great move for the core and stomach and also a great to increase stability, body awareness and increase structural balance. This will also work your posterior chain. Keep these slow and controlled and concentrate on your breathing whilst you perform each rep. Make sure it is full and deep.
4. DOWNWARD DOG CLIMBERS
An explosive move; this really targets fat loss with its intensity and technique. The downward dog adjustment will open up the body whilst the traditional mountain climbers will get you fitter and leaner. Try these for 30 seconds.
5. HINDU PRESS TO HIP OPENER
A great movement to open up the hips which is so important for women. There is an incredible link between hips and emotions. Whether it is one traumatic event, or multiple small events, the feelings of fear, anxiety and sadness are stored at the hips until we bring them to the surface and allow a release. The longer you suppress emotion, the tighter the grasp.
Try these over the next few weeks and see how you progress. Exercise is proven to increase immunity and mood which is crucial for the coming weeks ahead.
