Twitter Workout Exercises – from last nights twitter party

I hope U r excited for #tworkout. Format is 3 exercises per break, 15 sec recovery in between your choice of jacks, jump rope OR sidestep

If U have anything u can use for weights grab them now. Think along lines of med ball – cantaloupe, bball, sokr ball, small watermelon, bottle of soda

Progressively the exercises with get more difficult!


45 secs: SQUATS – wide stance, hands in front of u, strong core, knees don’t go beyond toes & pretend u have stability ball under you – try 2 get some air out of that ball #tworkout

45 secs: SQUAT w/ LEG LIFT – as you come into squat position alternate picking up foot about 6 inches off the floor #tworkout

45 secs: POWER SQUATS – JUMP in & out (on out it is a larger stance than previous squats and remember air out of stability ball) #tworkout

CARDIO – lets get that heart rate going:

45 Secs: SCISSOR JUMPS holding your weight extend your right arm hold it there! to the right side #tworkout This is cardio and balance – DON’T DROP IT!

45 Secs: TURNING JUMP SQUATS – hold object center as you do a 180 jump #tworkout

45 Secs: SCISSOR JUMPS holding object to the left side #tworkout Remember BALANCE we all need it, focus on tightening your core
