The only time I tried I miserably fell. Maybe someday.
Start in a seated position, legs extended out in front you, knees slightly bent. Heels can remain on the floor, for a greater challenge, lift feet up off the ground. Draw your belly button into your spine and slowly lean back so that your sitting bones are firmly planted on the ground or bench and your core muscles are engaged. For an added challenge hold a dumbbell or medicine ball in both hands. To begin, slowly twist your torso to one side and tap your hands down to the surface just next to your hip, then twist to the opposite side, reaching your arms up overhead as you turn. Repeat for 8-12 reps and then again on the opposite side. (Beginners should perform this exercise on the floor.)
Nothing feels better than a badass, sweaty workout. Or maybe coming back and peeling off your sweaty clothes and jumping in the shower and having the hot water soothe your proud muscles. Or maybe the feeling of the cold post-workout protein hit your lips and fuel your body. It also could be climbing into your bed at night, sore yet satisfied, knowing that you reached your daily goal. Or what about waking up the next morning as your feet take their first morning steps and feeling the hard workout ache that you earned. Go workout. Go be proud. Make yourself indecisive about what your favorite part about getting fit is.
This is not mine! I just really like it and feel my followers would benefit from it!
