Exercise Explanations! Videos to come soon (hopefully!)
Burpees: Starting from standing
position, put hands to floor, push back both feet into plank, jump both
feet back between hands, come back to standing or jump with hand in the
air. Modification: From standing, put hands to the floor, extend one
leg back into modified plank (knee down), extend other leg back into
modified plank. Reverse motion, walking feet back between hands, stand
Dips: Sit on the edge of a chair, piano bench,
window seal, whatever. Put hand on the seat on both sides of your
hips. Bring hips in front of chair, arms extended, walk feet out from
chair so that feet are well in front of knees. Bend elbows, lowering
your hips toward the floor. Extend the arms again to bring the hips
back up. Repeat motion.
Mountain Climbers: From plank or modified plank, bring one knee toward chest at a time.
Push-ups: You know how to do these. However, if you are unable to do them on the floor, you may do push ups against a wall.
Extensions: Nice to do these on a ball, but if you are on the floor,
lie on your stomach. Extend your arms in front of you or bring your
hands behind your head. Lift chest off the ground, working the lower back. Bring chin back toward floor and repeat.
