Today’s Monday Sweat & Strengthen routine includes MOBILITY to get your smaller, weak and in active muscles nice and activated while helping you burn calories and build solid strength through out the entire body.
Plus, THIS WLL FEEL 💯💯 if you were sitting a lot this long weekend (no judgement!)
*make sure to listen with volume,
But, we basically snuck in your mobility work and activation work in your ‘rest sets’
However once you get these ‘in btw’ exercises going you will feel your back BURNING –
This workout is IDEAL FOR SITTING
When you sit you develop an upper-cross syndrome;
- Tight hip-flexors
- Weak/ inactive glutes
- Forward posture
- Tight chest & pecks
- Week and long rounded back
In EXERCISE / SPORT
IF you don’t activate those weak and tight muscles correctly you’ll suffer overuse, weakness, injuries
THE PROGRESSIONS ABOVE
✔️Works directly to activate glutes & posterior chain
✔️Stability in core (that gun slinger swing makes the core stabilize as the gravity of the KB pulls to one side)
✔️Activates the back – specifically smaller weaker upper and mid back areas
Not only will you gain strength and endurance- sweat and feel great, but this workout also has fat burning & building muscle benefits,
You will work to correct any ‘length tension’ muscle imbalances caused by sitting.
Don’t think you ‘sit much’? We don’t realize how much we do sit,
We sit when we eat, chill, read, work, commute, socialize and watch movies & TV.
