First off: thanks to @alliemartin09 for the sweet pics!
Push ups are a great way to work your entire body: Core, chest, triceps, deltoids....The hardest part about doing a proper push up is that beginners typically try the hardest angle possible to learn them. This really never gives your weakest body part a chance to get strong enough to help. Note: I didn't say that a push up is an arm exercise. Yet, I hear people comment that their arms just aren't strong enough to do push ups. This may or may not be true, but the first thing I coach my clients on when starting push ups is engaging the CORE. This is why planks (holding the top of a push up) are an excellent way to start getting strong enough to do push ups.
Next: elevated push ups (perfect form on a wall or bench)
Next: regular push ups with perfect form
Next: add a balance challenge like one hand on a med ball (or two hands and your feet)
To learn the move as pictured, I recommend putting the med ball for your feet up against a wall so it will stabilize and you can get used to getting into position. Using a bigger med ball for your feet (maybe a dynamax ball?) will be easier than a smaller one b/c there's more surface area touching the ground. Let me know how it goes.

You have always been such an inspiration Terri! You look just as young as you did in Junior High! ❤️
Amazing and beautiful!!!
It’s not about what you CAN’T do. It’s about what you CAN!
Wow- definitely won’t be able to do that😂
My $10 Aldi find... I’m struggling with buying an air fryer. I LOVE the idea of crispy, crunchy healthy...but held off bc the air fryer takes up a lot of space. Bronson , Curtis Barr and I were chatting and he asked a good question: Why can’t you just use your convection oven setting on your oven?” This device should allow the air to circulate.... so let’s see.... Now, what to make???? 🤔 ... See MoreSee Less

I use my air fryer almost daily!!
I have an air fryer and honestly don't use it that much. It's nice, but just not something I readily use.
I totally agree! I thought that the batches of food looked really small-so food prep would be a pain. And thought why couldn’t I just use a cookie cooling rack on a cookie sheet?
Cool find! I have not purchased an air fryer for the same reason, too big.
Sweet potato fries!
I like that! Wish I had a convection oven. It takes like an hour to make fries in the oven haha
It was a great #legday at #itcdm. Here are four Great 👍🏻 #dynamicwarmup moves for legs that you can try. I’m using a #markbellhipcircle and I love it 🥰 (size S/M) .
Try 20 reps each, 2-4 rounds
Sidesteps (shown “in place” to remind u that u can do this in limited spaces such as a hotel room)
Heel kicks-these are cool 😎.... keep ur knees apart, under your hip bones, maybe slightly “out”, just not INSIDE the hip bones...and make sure you kick ur RIGHT HEEL to ur RIGHT GLUTE... this makes ur right hip work to stabilize. Crossing rt heel to left Glute completely misses the point.
Banded squats-if you have a #lazybutt like me (seriously my rt Glute med is a constant work in progress...) then work on controlling eccentric motion and engage on the way down and the way UP!
STaggered stance RDL- shown in warm up with my back foot planted. Since that Glute is so #dormant, I find I can contract through both ranges of motion better by removing the balance challenge of lifting the back leg. Once it’s warmed up it 🔥 fires 🔥 better, then I will do SLRDLS in the workout 🏋️♀️.
Next up: food planning! How bout you? #happysunday ... See MoreSee Less

I love your tank top!!!
I have no idea how old this alarm clock ⏰ is. What I do know is that I’ve had it for as long as I can remember (I’m 45) and it used to kick my butt. I learned how to #beatthealarmclock a few years ago by creating a positive mental state first thing in the am. I made it a hard rule that the ONLY thing I was allowed to do was get up, use the bathroom, drink a Spark (my am wake me up drink) and then NOTHING. I allowed myself to do nothing. For ten minutes. See, my obstacle was that as soon as the alarm went off, I would think of the hardest thing I would have to do. This was typically running sprints at my 5:15 am workout. But it could have also been something like having to face a difficult situation or confrontation that day. Either way, Going from comfy, cozy, delicious sleep 💤 directly to sprints or yucky confrontation 🤢 is enough to make anyone want to stay in bed! 😴 #icancoachu

Hey YOU! ... yeah, I’m talking to you. I just want to remind you that “you are the most important project of your life. Self help is not an event, it is a process.” (-Mel Robbins.) True growth doesn’t happen in a 10 week Transformation. (Although these can be helpful in giving you a kickstart and be part of your process). So I just want to take a second to remind you to be kind to yourself. If you’re taking on fitness and nutrition in your New Year’s resolutions, Grant yourself a little grace and remember to play the long game. Oh, and if you want some AWESOME #free #mindsetreset coaching, check out Mel Robbins, author of The Five Second Rule.
