Hooked - (Stacia Naquin)
Updated: 10/11/2013 - I'm SO CLOSE to being able to do a pull-up. So my trainer introduced something new into my training.
Don't let stress get you down. It may only take 3 moves to melt the stress away! Grab a slam ball and let out all that aggression! Curtis Hyde, a Certified Personal Trainer with 24-Hour Fitness, shows us how:
Hold the ball out in front of your body, keeping yourself upright with your belly button held into your spine. Lift the ball directly over your head until you fully extend your arm, then slam the ball into floor as hard as possible. Pick up and repeat.
Look directly at the wall, holding the slam ball at chest height. Suck your belly button into your spine to keep your core active and spine safe. Push ball straight ahead into the wall with all your force. As soon it hits the floor, run and grab it. Then repeat.
Jump squats while hugging the ball:
Hold the slam ball in your arms as if you are cuddling it. Keep eyes straight ahead, with your belly tight. Put your feet shoulder width apart, with your toes slightly pointed out. Start to squat by pushing knees to the sides. Shift butt to over your heels to keep knees safe. Drop your butt to your heels then explode back up, jumping as high as you can.
Land on your toes and roll to your heels to keep your lower back safe.
