Our Own First TribeSports Challenge!

You guys know about the affair I had with the TribeSports 12 days of fitness challenge last month, right? Yes, I loved it. And so how about we do our own challenge on TribeSports? The purpose of this challenge is to get you thinking about your inner thighs as you run and do other forms of cardio exercises. I always say it is important to protect your joints by strengthening your muscles. 

This exercise works both your inner thighs and your core as you are forced to work on your balance. What do you do? 
  1. Stand on a Bosu ball or a disc (or anything unstable) and tighten your abs
  2. Lift one leg in front of you till your knee is at a 90 degree angle to the floor 
  3. Move the same knee back as far as you can keeping your upper body straight 
  4. Do 30 reps on each side
Do this every day for 7 days and let us know how you did. Check out the entire challenge on the TribeSports site, register, and mark it off as complete when you are done!

Cheers Eights & Weights!

PS. I promised to share a tip every day this week to keep you on your toes as you work on your fitness resolutions for the new year. 

Tip #1: In doing a front lunge (lunging forward), always push back on your front heel before you get up. This reduces the pressure on your front knee. If you are not comfortable with front lunges, stick to back lunges (lunge backward).
