This #FitnessFriday is dedicated to the importance of stretching! After I work out, it’s important for me to stretch and lengthen. Fitness is not just about running, lifting and punching. For me, being athletic and super fit is also about being still, stretching and breathing. Including stretching in my fitness program helps my muscles stay long, limber, improves my mobility and range of motion and, most importantly, helps me avoid injuries. This is one of my favorite #yoga poses, the shoulder stand, that stretches my lower spine and legs. I feel 2 inches taller after this stretch! Some people use yoga poses to manage stress, increase circulation, for medication, recovery, better sleep, and mobility just to name a few. Check out my Fitness IG Story to see a stretch I like for hip mobility that lengthens my sides and for today's #keto meal. Today I challenge you to share your best yoga pose. If you don't have one, I encourage you to search for one, post about it, tag #FitnessFridayHB and tell me how it makes you feel. ❤️🙏🏽
Beginning five months ago, every week Berry shares a #FitnessFriday on her account, which typically includes a favorite workout she's doing. During last week’s video, she showed us the plank move she does to get strong, flat abs.
Results are highly impressive—and even better, it’s actually totally doable.
In the video, Berry and her trainer, Peter Lee Thomas, are in a high plank when they slowly raise one leg up, and set it back down before raising the other one. This stability move is great to not only work the core, but also the glutes.
After doing reps of this, they move on to an exercise that’s slightly more difficult. As they slowly lift the right leg, they lift the left arm straight over their head and shoulders at the same time. After setting both of them back down at the same time, they alternate to the left leg and right arm. This balancing move works all areas of the core to flatten and strengthen.
After watching last Friday’s videos, we can’t see what Berry has in store for #FitnessFriday this week.
