How to Perform the Bodyweight Squat - Exercise Tutorial It's an ancient exercise our ancestors used when creating excrement. THE SQUAT! Here are some do's and do not's for this calisthenics exercise.
Strengthens the hip flexor muscles, the front of your thighs, you abductor muscles of your inner thighs and the gluteus muscles of your hips. Strengthens and stretches your calf muscles. Opens your chest and shoulders. Improves the range of motion in your ankles.
So we're going to come into Cat and Cow pose.
Beautiful to do in the beginning of your practice because it opens up the spine, it starts to move like fluidity through the spine, join the breath and the body together nicely. So it's a nice one one to do right in the beginning. To start you're going to come on to all fours.
Make sure that the shoulder is over the wrist. So a lot of us get in here, pitch it forward or more commonly pitch it behind. So just make sure the shoulders are over your wrist and that your knees are right underneath your hips.
And we'll first just talk about the whole anatomy of the pose and then we'll talk about different ways that you can use your feet to aid in this process. So first things first is Cow. And you have to think of it like an Indian cow. Like it needed to eat a meal. So it looks like this. The belly falls down, the shoulders roll back and the gaze comes up towards the sky.
That's on the in breath. As you exhale you're going to reverse that. So you're going to carve the belly in, puff the rib cage up and look in at your navel. Inhale, and exhale. So you can start to add the toes. Curl the toes, even press back into the toes, gaze up and then the release the toes, press the tops of the feet down and look in at your navel.
If you want to intensify this, make this more of a core, a core awakening posture, just tuck your toes under and hover your knees two inches above the floor and work the pose this way. So it's going to be smaller, it's going to be more subtle, but you'll have to engage a little bit in the core body to keep yourself here. So there's some variations of Cat and Cow.
Instruction and demonstration of how to do a beginner push-up.
This exercise combines knee lifts with the typical running motion. It's one of the most effective moves for improving your running form as well as your speed, flexibility, and balance.
The high knees run also increases your heart rate and burns calories, making it ideal for those looking to shed fat. It's the perfect exercise for a challenging cardio workout that will get your heart rate going.
The main muscles involved are the quads, calves, and glutes. This move engages your abs too, and can help you get rid of love handles.
It's called lateral line jumps.
Again, any sport that incorporates moving laterally, tennis, basketball, soccer, table tennis, anything like that really could use this type of plyo move. And of course, you can use it in your workout as well. I actually like to use something like this when I'm weight training, or when I have high intensity days. This is going to be my quick burst of lateral moving.
What I'm going to do is, I'm going to start with my feet, shoulders apart. Actually, this time I'll start together. And keeping your knees off, you're going to jump from one side to the other. Okay? Up. Keep in mind that you can actually use your arms as a driving force.
Okay? To get you over. And almost like a skiing move. Skiers can use this as well. Okay? That's the beginner move. I'm going to make it a little bit more intense. I'm going to go quicker. All right? Notice what my arms are doing, so I can keep it as close as possible to the line.
Okay? I'll do that for 30 seconds, and then I'll rest. Then I'll come back again, and I'll do it again. Okay? Driving slow, and then picking it up. The object here is to go as fast as you can, increasing your heart rate, and getting a good burn so that you are easily conditioned. Alright? And that is how you do your lateral line jump.
his exercise, which is a variant of the classic side lunge, is ideal for toning the buttocks in a quick and effective manner.
"Pulse Lunges" also help neuromuscular coordination and a general strengthening. By performing the movement correctly, you can stimulate the ankle, knee, hips and also involve the gluteus and quadriceps, with varying intensity according to the width of the step.
This exercise is widely used as preparation in specific sports such as skiing and snowboarding, as well as all those disciplines that require great endurance/strength in the quadriceps muscles.
WALL PUSH UPS are not only beneficial for a beginner but for all levels. They are excellent exercises for people who want to strengthen the chest, but have back problems. This is because they do not put stress on the spine. To do these push –ups, please follow the steps given below: Stand in front of a wall. Lift your arms to the shoulder level and place your palms against the wall. They should be wider than your shoulders. Your fingers must be pointing upwards. Move your feet a few feet away from the wall. Your elbows have to be bent, as you lean against the wall. Never arch your back during these exercises, as they can damage the spine, causing injury. Pull your stomach in and contract your buttocks during these exercises. This aids to support your upper body. Inhale before you begin the exercise and exhale as you push yourself away from the wall, until your arms are outstretched and the elbows slightly bent. Repeat this procedure 5-10 times. For more advanced levels of exercise, follow the guidelines given below: Using a slow pace, this is a rather advanced version of the exercise. Start the doing the Wall push-up at a slow pace. While you push off from the wall, count slowly until 4. Count slowly again until 4 as you came back to the starting position. Breathing correctly during this exercise quickly enhances desired results. So, go ahead and try them out. You will certainly find a marked difference after doing them.
Marching in place or doing a high jog, is a great way to warm up. You are literally just mimicking the movements of running. So you are engaging a lot of the similar muscle groups that you'd use in a run. For example, just raising one knee up and then alternating leg. So you are getting that hip flexor action to take place, warming up in the hip socket. You are also engaging your core. If you let the upper body move, you are gonna start warming up in the shoulders. Great way if you can't do a whole lot of impact, it'll still elevate the heart rate. And if you can take a little bit more impact, just start picking up the pace and high jog, lifting the knees upto the chest, rolling through the feet. You could also do it where you are not landing with your heels, and you are just staying on the balls of your feet. Great way to prepare for some acclerations like sprinting or doing some jumping. You could also do a butt kick variation, where you are doing the heel to the glute, picking up the speed and making it a little bit more high impact. And then you are gonna get some warming up happening a little bit more deeply in that knee joint as you go through that greater knee flexion. All different variation of marching in place, jogging, running, again just a great way to get that heart rate up. Whether you do the lower impact variation of the marching in place, or the higher impact variation of the high jog or the butt kicker variation getting a litte bit more range of motion in your knee. They are all gonna be great as they tend to mimic a movement of running mechanics preparing your body for exercise or for a run.
