5 Exercises To Kick-Start Your New Year
Happy New Year! If one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2019 is to up your fitness game, we are here to help you achieve your goals. Setting fitness resolutions for yourself is easy, but sticking with them over the long haul is anything but easy. That’s why it’s important to start slow and steady to ensure that you can keep going throughout the year, and not burn yourself out before February.
Here are five foundational exercises to help you kick-start your New Year that you can perform anywhere, with no equipment needed, or with resistance bands for an added challenge.
Bodyweight squats are a highly functional, everyday movement that works all the major muscles of the legs. These are the foundation of all lower-body exercises and can be performed virtually anywhere without the need for equipment.
Resistance Band Split Squats
Resistance band split squats put less stress on the lower back than traditional weighted squats, helping minimize the risk of injury while still strengthening your quads and hamstrings.
Lateral Band Walks
Lateral band walks help improve the strength and stability of your hips, core, and your knee joints. These improvements will help your body’s movement efficiency while reducing stress and strain on your joints.
Double Leg Glute Bridge
Double leg glute bridges are the perfect exercise to strengthen your hamstrings, abs, and glutes while reducing strain on your lower back and improve your hip mobility.
Leg Assisted Side Plank
Leg assisted side planks are an excellent full-body exercise that will strengthen your core, shoulders, and obliques. They will also help you improve your balance and concentration as you focus on keeping your form.
