It’s Day EIGHT of the one exercise a day challenge. We’re pushing the edge a bit with today’s exercise, which is: KNEES, CHEST, CHIN. This move is super popular among yoga instructors because it’s a safe pushup alternative for those with lower back sensitivity. It is also less taxing on your shoulders! Watch today’s training video to find out how to do it!
HOW TO COMPLETE THE WORKOUT
Set a timer for ONE minute. Do as many repetitions as you can in that time. Complete 1-3 total rounds. Note: This may not feel comfortable, but just know that it’s normal for certain exercises to feel hard 🤯 As you build strength, with repetition, you will start to feel more competent during this and other challenging exercises. Trust me, you are not alone! We have all been there at some time!
HOW TO MODIFY
This move is more challenging that most, so if you need to make it a bit easier, stop about halfway down. This means you won’t bring your entire body to the ground. Think of it as KNEES, CHEST instead of KNEES, CHEST, CHIN.
MAKE IT MORE CHALLENGING
You can engage more muscles during this workout by hitting REVERSE when you get down to the floor, so instead of pressing straight up from the ground, press into your hands and shift your hips BACK toward your heels first. Then press yourself into starting position. Complete as many rounds as you can, to fatigue 🏋🏾♂️
