Week 3: My 5 fave stretches and 3 tips for toning your arms!

I can’t believe its already week 3 of the #BosuStrong challenge, time flies when  you’re having fun! Last week we focused on balance and I was proud of myself for __attempting a tree pose on the bosu_. This week its all about stretching and toning – so make sure you join in on the fun!

Since we’re talking about stretching here are 5 of my all time favorite stretches:

  • I love to stretch my legs by doing _pigeon pose_.
  • My favorite total body stretch is_a sun salutation series_.
  • I swear when I do___hamstring streches___, it feels like_a painful reminder that I’m still not ready to run and I wish I were (darn hamstring injury)_.
  • I stretch my mind by _meditating will in corpse pose and letting go of the daily stresses.
  • I try to stretch out of my comfort zone by_trying new things and pushing myself just a little harder with each workout/stretch.

And if you’re looking for a great way to tone your _arms_, here are my fave 3 tips (tricks, advice, words of wisdom, etc):

  1. Don’t be afraid to use heavy weights and try something new!  This week I’ll try to incorporate some of my fave lifting moves with the BOSU trainer to add a whole new level of difficulty.__
  2. Get creative with the BOSU or a chair and try some tricep dips (keep an eye out on Tuesday 9/29)
  3. Fuel your body right!!  This is the most important piece of advice!  If you want those muscles to really pop you will need to dedicate more efforts in the what you’re putting into your body.
