Check-in for Week #2
Mad Muscle May is a simple plan to do a few strengthening exercises every single day, except for 1 rest day a week. The calendar has Sunday as the rest day, but you can pick a different day if you want. The link to the full calendar is in my siggy. There is also a link to a Ballet Body May, in case you want to do that one instead.
This month's plan focuses on legs and core exercises. I put more variety in it this time, so if you have any questions about what exercises are, I would suggest checking out Google first & then let the group know if you have any questions. Disclaimer: I am not a personal trainer, just a dance instructor. This is meant to be for fun, encouragement, and a little bit of accountability to each other.
Mon - 25 each: jump squats, yoga bridges, calf raises
Tues - 12 each: 5 second V sits & Side plank oblique crunches
Wed - 10 each: 90 degree kicks front, side, back, side (on each leg) and a 30 second wall sit
Thurs - 40 each: crunches, Russian twists, reverse crunches
Fri - Power Hour: Every hour, do 5 push ups
Sat - 15 each: 5 second V sits & Side plank oblique crunches
Sun - rest
*Wednesday's kicks are based on grand battements in ballet. You can use a chair for support. Here is a video explaining them, if needed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgKXn1Evj-o
