A few years ago, I was looking at my workout wardrobe and wondering what I could do to make my workout more fun and interesting.
Wear a sweatsuit.
It’s the easiest thing to do and gives you an extra boost of energy, because you can just do your best not to look like a complete moron when you do your workout.
But what if you don’t want to look that silly?
Or what if it’s a bit of a hassle?
Well, you’re not alone, so I decided to create a new workout challenge for you.
Here’s what I came up with.
So, without further ado, here’s the latest workout challenge I came across.
My workout challenge was inspired by a recent research paper from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is a compilation of exercises from the NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
The exercise I created was a combination of the following exercises: 1) The Pull Up: This is a very good pull up, since it will take you into a comfortable position, but it also allows you to get into a very fast pull-up position that will allow you to do a more moderate push-up (not a power pull-down, mind you).
2) The Row: This exercise will take your core strength and endurance to the next level.
3) The Reverse Crunch: This reverse crunch allows you the freedom to get as high as you can while holding your breath and not looking down, which is an awesome way to build endurance and strengthen your core muscles.
4) The Single Arm Pull Up (SAAP): SAAP is a great exercise that requires little to no effort and is very easy to do.
It is also a great warm-up exercise for those who may be struggling with their workouts or who are not a fan of the pull-ups or push-ups.
5) The Hip Thrust: A hip thrust will allow your hip extensors to extend into the side of your torso and give you the flexibility to perform more power-based movements, like the power snatch or the front squat.
6) The Hanging Leg Curl: Another great hip thrust exercise is hanging leg curl.
Hang your leg out straight and curl it in your hips, keeping your body straight and your knees bent.
7) The Straight Leg Curls: Another good straight leg curl exercise is straight leg curls.
Sit on your back and curl your leg in front of you, keeping the legs straight.
8) The Side Leg Curling: This movement is a fantastic one for strengthening your glutes and hamstrings, since you can rotate your hips and knees in a controlled fashion while working on your core and upper body strength.
9) The Bent-Over Row: Sit on the floor with your legs bent and raise your upper body up, then turn your torso towards the ceiling and lower your lower body down.
10) The Overhead Press: This overhead press is another great exercise for your core, since the weight will be overhead.
11) The Incline Dumbbell Fly: Sit with your feet hip-width apart and curl the dumbbells in your hands with the palms facing down, then lower your torso to the floor and raise the weight back to your feet.
12) The Romanian Deadlift: The Romanian deadlift is another very strong exercise, and this one requires very little effort.
You’ll be moving your hips forward while performing the move.
13) The Curl-to-Pull-Up: This move is great for the abs, since doing this exercise will make you feel more relaxed and will help you get into an even stronger position than your normal push-down or pull-bar rows.
14) The Cable Row: Cable row is a good exercise for the back, since this move will allow for a stable position in which to work your glute muscles and hip flexors.
15) The Tricep Curl, the Row-to
