Fat Burn Using Stability Exercises Hello and welcome the Aztec Recreation Center My name is David Contreras. Today we will be performing stability workouts. Stability, all it is, is creating an imbalance in your workout routine that way you help use your minor muscle groups to activate and help you stablize at an unstable environment. The four workouts we will be doing are: the single leg touch down, the single leg lunge, the single leg shoulder press, and the opposite arm, opposite leg life. Today's first workout is going to be the single leg touch down. What you want to focus on when your starting this workout is you want to make sure your foot is not inverting or everting. You want to make sure it stays straight and even with the rest of your joints. Ankle joint, knee joint and your hip flexors to help you get proper form. What you want to do now is bring your right leg up; your opposite arm is going to come down to your opposite foot. And you want to keep your back straight the knee slightly bent "Good Job" Repeat montion for a 30 second interval. The second workout were going to move into is the single leg lunge. One of the common mistakes that people do when they do a lunge is they tend to lean too forward. This puts too much pressure on the knee and can increase injury. What you want to do is you want to make sure you drop down, keep a 90 degree angle that way you contract your glutes, hamstrings and your quads properly, without putting too muc pressure on the knee. Repeat motion for a 30 second interval. The third exercise we're going to be moving into is the single leg shoulder press. What you want to do here is get that right leg up. Get a good 45 degrees. When you come up, you want to start at a good 90 degrees and begin. You want to start off with a good 20 second interval. Make sure you keep your legs locked because that is what is going to help you stay stable. Now, on this other side, what you want to do is keep that 45 degree angle because that is going to also help you activate those other joints on the other side of the leg. Our fourth exercise is going to be the opposite arm, opposite leg lift. For beginners, you are going to want to start with a 20 second interval and all you're going to do is bring your opposite arm and opposite leg up. Keep it nice and leveled out. Then go ahead and switch. Your main focus here is to make sure you are contracting your glutes, hamstrings and your rear deltoids and as you are also keeping your core tight to help you stabilize. Fitness model switches opposite arms and legs in a 20-second interval. This concludes our workout. The four exercises we focused on today were: single leg touch down, single leg lunge, single leg shoulder press, and the opposite arm, opposite leg routine. These workouts are great to help you reduce joint injury and help you increase athletic performance. If you have any further questions, feel free to visit me at www.tbtpfit.com.
