March 14 Weekly Update

“Not all Athletes Wear Shoes”

We were just talking ground hog predictions not too long ago. I’m so confused along with the rest of you as to what season we are actually in. Let’s cross our fingers that this will be the last of the Winter Storms mother nature has planned for us.

It’s Spring break and time to check out what’s going on in and around us. Perhaps you’ll take in the Toronto Home Show. Get some ideas of summer projects to do around the house. We can’t just train all the time. I’m sure the “honey to do lists” are getting bigger by the minute.

Perhaps you’re off to a sun destination with the family. Getting in that one last holiday. Toes in the sand, warm sun on your face and no electronics!

Wherever your travels take you this week…enjoy the family time and be safe!

Keep your chin up folks. Only 1 more week away till we officially hit Spring but until then, it might just be a full week of indoor training for all of us.




Muscle Up

Breakdancer. Yes, you read that correctly. This abdominal exercise might just make you feel like you are back on the dance floor. I’d say pump up the jam, okay music and give this one a try. (Intermediate)
Bend down so that your hands are on the ground and your feet hip-distance a part. Your shoulders should be stacked over your wrists, your knees bent to 90 degrees, your back flat, and abs engaged. This will be your starting position.
Lift one hand off the ground and bring your opposite foot off the floor. Rotate your hips as you bring your leg through kicking it out to the opposite side.
Rotate your hips back and kick your opposite foot through while switching hand placement on the ground.
Repeat for the recommended number of repetitions.
