Seated Lateral Raise: Exercise Tips

Whether you’re a beginner or advanced in your weight lifting, training the shoulders is key for avoiding injury and creating definition in the upper body. When performing the seated lateral raise, make sure to sit up straight, roll the shoulders back, lift the chest and keep the core tight. Have fun!

Main Muscles Used:

  • Deltoids
  • Core

Stabilizing Muscles:

  • Upper Back
  • Traps

 

Walking Ab Pull: Exercise Tips

Getting creative when training the abs is one of my favorite things to do. I rarely do the same exercises on a weekly basis. I love to incorporate the whole body to work as many other muscles as possible while targeting the abs. When doing the Ab Pull make sure to  keep your lower abs tight, your hands under your shoulders and your hips inline with your shoulders. Good luck!

Main Muscle Used

  • Transverse Abdominals 
  • Shoulders
  • Hip Flexors

Stabilizing Muscles

  • Back
  • Glutes 
  • Quadriceps 

 

Skull Crusher: Exercise Tips

Goal of Exercise:

The skull crusher not only tones and creates definition through the tricep muscle, it also helps fix imbalances in the muscle as well as rehabilitate the muscle after injury. If the skull crusher seems too challenging, start with something likes bench dips or tricep kick backs and work your way into this more advanced tricep exercise.

Main muscle used:

  • Tricep
  • Latissimus Dorsi

Stabilizing Muscle:

  • Abdominals

 

Body JACKS: Exercise Tips

Goal of Exercise:

Body weight movements are one of the most efficient ways to train the body. They require no equipment and can be done basically anywhere. The body jack is one of my favorite ways to get my cardio in and switch things up. If the jumping movement is too much for your body, you can simply walk the legs and arms in and out.
