Fitness Goals with Athlexica
Everybody loves New Year resolutions especially related to our fitness because who does not want the best body for themselves, and the chances of keeping on with your fitness resolution are high as your determination. This year my resolution for targeted muscle group workouts has given me the results I have been looking for. Targeted muscle group workouts helped in building the muscle strength and toning my body.
The main thing during targeted workouts is ensuring the perfect activewear, which allows you the freedom of movement and at the same time supports your muscle. The latest development in activewear has made it all possible.
Athlexica is one of the womens activewear clothing lines which have got all the features of perfect activewear. From the past two months I have been using their products during my workouts. The fabric has the four way stretch which allows comfort and freedom of movement during workouts. During high intensity workouts it also absorbs the sweat from the body and best thing is that the clothing is anti-odor. They have got a range of vibrant colors and stylish designs in activewear pants, tops and sports bras.So as I promised to share my workout regime with you guys..Here it goes, you can decide the repetition and weight intensity according to your stamina
Upper Body Workout Regime
Start with a dumbbell in each hand and your palms facing your torso. Keep your back straight with a slight bend in the knees and bend forward at the waist.Make sure to keep your head up.There should be a 90-degree angle formed between your forearm and upper arm.This is your starting position.Now, while keeping your upper arms stationary, exhale and use your triceps to lift the weights until the arm is fully extended. Focus on moving the forearm.Repeat the movement for the prescribed amount of repetitions
Tricep Rope Curl
Attach a rope attachment to a low pulley and stand facing the machine about 12 inches away from it.Grasp the rope with a neutral (palms-in) grip and stand straight up keeping the natural arch of the back and your torso stationary and bend from the knees.Put your elbows in by your side and keep them there stationary during the entire movement.Only the forearms should move; not your upper arms. This will be your starting position.Using your biceps, pull your arms up as you exhale until your biceps touch your forearms.Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
Stand up straight with a dumbbell in each hand at arm’s length. Keep your elbows close to your torso and rotate the palms of your hands until they are facing forward. This will be your starting position. Now, keeping the upper arms stationary, exhale and curl the weights while contracting your biceps
Sit under the bar and grip it with your palms facing out.Straighten up and lift about 50 percent of your body weight, keeping your feet on the ground and your knees slightly bent. Keep lifting until your chin is over the bar.Slowly lower yourself back to starting position
Seated Overhead Press
Choose the weights correctly,not too heavy and too light to begin with in both your hands.Now place them at right angles next to your face as seen in the picture.Hold at about shoulder level and slightly in front of your head. This is your starting position.Slowly lift over your head until the elbows are locked and arms parallel to each other. Repeat the movement for targeted number of repetitions
My Lower Body Workout Regime
Start with positioning the bar high back on shoulders with the wide grip and shoulder width stance, squat down by bending hips back keeping your back straight and thighs parallel to the floor. Extend knees to reach starting position. Repeat the movement for targeted number of repetitions
Step far forward with one leg, keeping your shoulders back bend your hips down towards the ground with weights in both hands, pause for a moment then press up with your front leg to bring your hip back, repeat the process with opposite leg.
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, toes pointed out, and knees slightly bent; look straight ahead. Hold a 6/8 kg kettlebell (a good starter weight for women) between your legs using a twohanded, overhand grip.Keeping the arch in your lower back, bend your hips back until the kettlebell is between and behind your legs; squeeze your glutes to extend your hips and swing the weight up.Let the weight swing back between your legs as you bend your hips and slightly bend your knees; if it hits you in the butt, you’re doing it right. Extend your hips and knees to reverse the momentum as you immediately begin the next rep
Walk to the bar. Stand with your mid-foot under the bar.Grab the bar. Bend over without bending your legs.Bend your knees. Drop into position by bending your knees until your shins touch the bar.Lift your chest. Straighten your back by raising you chest.Pull. Take a big breath, hold it and stand up with the weight. Keep the bar in contact with your legs while you pull. Don’t shrug or lean back at the top. Lock your hips and knees
