Balls, Bells, and Ropes!!

Hi Everyone,
FITE Club was jamming this morning with 14 clubbers.  Amber was new to the group (she was actually new last week, but I didn't blog about it), and Olga was back after a long hiatus.  Jim, Frank, Margaret, Ana, Robin, Diane, Matt, Heather, Jenna, Di, Sabrina and myself rounded out the group.

Today we did a 6 exercise circuit with a "finisher".  We stayed at each station for 60 seconds, with a 15 second transition between stations.  We then completed 3 total rounds.

  1. Agility Ladder
  2. Lunge with KB or Sledge chop
  3. Rope Slams
  4. KB Sumo dead lifts
  5. Bosu- MB Russian Twist
  6. KB Swings
Finisher: (descending Pyramid from 5 to 1)
  1. Turkish Get ups (TGU)
  2.  SB Plank circles

hmmm....turn your head to the right:)

Stability Ball Supine Dowel Shifts

Hi Everyone,
I hope you have had an opportunity to master the other exercises in the Core Stability Series.  My latest addition to the series is call the SB Supine Dowel Shifts.  This exercise is deceivingly difficult.  Give ti a go, and be sure that your hips and shoulders remain level throughout the entire exercise.  Perform this exercise for a certain time limit.  I would begin with 20 seconds and work your way up in time.

Good Luck.
