It’s a new month. With the dawning of a new month, it’s a good idea to create some new fitness goals and, also, to spice up your Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym routine with some innovative workouts.
Let’s start with the first. List at least 5 fitness goals for the month. Maybe it’s to get to the Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym more often. Maybe it’s to concentrate on a particular area of the body, be it the abs, arms, etc. Maybe it’s to try something new; perhaps a Yoga, Pilates, or cycling class – something unexplored and fresh. Whatever it is, write it down. Post it to your fridge. Make the list visible. Make the goals accessible and achievable. No one expects you to gain 30 lbs. of muscle in 30 days. Although, this is supposedly possible according to fitness expert Tim Ferriss. Let’s aim at something more reasonable.
Now that your list is complete, let’s explore a quick workout you can churn out during your time at the Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym. This routine, entitled The Special K Routine, is inspired by Krissy Cags, personal trainer at Rise Above Fitness and Creator of BAMfit. Do each of the following exercises for 25 reps, then run through it 5 times. Ready, set, work it.
Exercise 1: Sit-up to Bridge. Move from a full sit-up to a full bridge. Lift the hips all the way to the sky and engage the gluts with a tight squeeze. This movement targets the booty and the tummy, so you’re killing two birds – butts and guts – with one stone.
Exercise 2: Dive Bombers. Begin with your hands and feet on the floor and your hips raised, so your body resembles an inverted V. Lower your shoulders, then glide your chest forward. Send your chest in between your hands and then up toward the ceiling. Then, reverse it. Bring your hips back toward the ceiling. That’s one. 24 to go. Ouch.
Exercise 3: 180 Squat Jumps. Simply do a squat jump, but up the ante with a 180-degree turn each time you jump. Hey now! Keep your chest open and your core engaged. Be sure to get low on each squat. Don’t cheat yourself.
Exercise 4: Superman to Hollow. This is a bit tricky. Start like superman (on your stomach), with your legs and arms lifted off the floor. Engage your core, then roll over to your back without letting your limbs touch the ground into a hollow position. On your back, in the hollow position, your arms and legs are still lifted and you have a space (hence hollow) between your lower back and the ground. Hold for two seconds after each roll. This exercise is no joke.
BOOM. There’s a quick, intense, full body challenge for you to master at the Pivotal Fitness Greenville gym. It will surely murder your muscles…in a good way.
