Fitness Friday with Larisa

I heard recently that people spend more time thinking of excuses not to work out then they would if you would just go to the gym already.  But, we all know there are times when you just can’t make it to the gym for various reasons.  The one that is more common for me is getting stuck at the office late.  So, Larisa has armed me with some office workout tips so that when I get stuck at work I no longer have an excuse to skip out on my workout.  All you need is an office chair and some understanding co-workers…

Check out some of these work appropriate moves modeled by Larisa and her too cute daughter Gabby :)

1. Chair Squats.  Sit in your chair and stand up in the squat position.  If you want to make it more challenging put your hands behind your head and twist at your waist alternating sides.

2. Tricep Dips. Make sure your chair is locked in place or push it up against a wall.  Slide your butt 1 inch off the seat of your chair and bend your elbows while pressing your hands to straighten and keeping your abs tight.

3.  Single Leg Squats. Stand profile to your chair & support yourself with 1 hand.  Lift your outside leg out in front of you & squat down and up just using your standing leg.  Switch legs and continue.

4. Chair Push-up.  Again make sure your chair is secure.  Then place feet shoulder width apart and hands under shoulders and same width as shoulders.  Hold on to outside edges, lower your chest between your elbows keeping your back straight then push into the chair & press up.

5.  Mountain Climber. Start in the previous push-up position keeping your arms straight bring your knee to your chest and then switch, keep repeating.

6. Toe taps.  Slide your butt to the edge of the seat, lean back and lift your knees up at your waist level.  Feel your abs engaged and tap your toes like you are touching hot sand.

GOWORKOUTNow Gabby says, “Go work out girl!”
