For #fitnessfriday this is the pushup you should be doing. This creative twist burns more calories and builds more stability.

The Stability Ball Scissors Push-up
Start in a high plank with tops of feet centered on a stability ball. Bring right knee in toward chest, then rotate torso slightly as you extend leg out, parallel to the ground. Perform a push-up, keeping body squared up as much as possible. Reverse motion back to start. Repeat on left side. Continue alternating sides with each rep.

#mondaymoves Add this to your workout to sculpt your upper body-Renegade rows

Begin in a high plank with a dumbbell in each hand, feet slightly wider than hips, and shoulders directly over wrists. Row the right dumbbell up to chest height, tensing the core to maintain stability. Return to start and repeat with the left dumbbell. Continue, alternating sides.

The Sliding Push-up
Start in a high plank with a towel under your left palm. Slowly slide left hand forward, as you bend right elbow behind you and lower chest toward floor. Without falling flat, extend left arm as far forward as possible, and then slowly slide back up to start, keeping arm straight throughout. Do 8 reps; switch sides and repeat.

#mondaymoves Add this to your workout to sculpt your upper body-The Dumbbell reverse fly

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with feet hip-width apart. Hinge at the hips and, keeping elbows slightly bent, lift dumbbells out to both sides at shoulder level, squeezing shoulder blades together. Return to start, then repeat.

The Side Plank Push-up
Start in a high plank. Lower chest toward floor, and then as you press back up, rotate torso to left and keep gaze on your left hand, as you lift your left arm and leg toward the ceiling, forming an X with your body. Hold for one count; rotate back to high plank and repeat.

#mondaymoves Add this to your workout to sculpt your upper body-The Alternating arm Arnold press

Stand tall with a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height, palms facing toward you (as if at the top of a bicep curl). Start on the left side, pressing the dumbbell up, and rotating the weight as you go, so palm is facing forward at the top. Reverse the motion to bring the dumbbell back to start. Repeat on right side. Continue, alternating sides.

For #wellnesswednesday we bring you a zesty lemony charred shrimp and fennel salad–green olives and fragrant garlic add depth to this filling, low-carb meal.
In this quick and satisfying Italian-inspired salad, fennel,
which is rich in vitamin C, is paired with protein-heavy shrimp. The zingy lemon dressing and briny green olives round out the meal.

1 lemon
2 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 fennel bulbs
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pinch Kosher salt
1 pinch freshly, ground black pepper
1 cup arugula, rinsed and dried
½ cup pitted green olives

Step 1: Place your rack in the upper third of the oven and heat the oven to broil. Using a grater, zest the lemon and finely grate the garlic into a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and stir to combine.

Step 2: Halve, core, and thinly slice the fennel, reserving any fronds. Transfer the fennel and the shrimp to the large bowl, season with salt and pepper, and toss to combine, adding more oil if not sufficiently coated. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet and broil until the shrimp is cooked through and the shrimp and fennel are charred in spots, about 5 minutes. Halfway through broiling, check to make sure everything is cooking evenly and rotate the pan, if needed.

Step 3: Once the shrimp and fennel are cooked, add the arugula and olives to the sheet pan and toss gently to combine. Drizzle over juice of half the zested lemon and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Transfer salad to a serving dish, top with fennel fronds, and serve.

#tuesdaytip Can you pass the goblet squat test?
Functional training should be a major part of your fitness routine. To do it well, you need evenly distributed strength, which you can achieve with the goblet squat test

The squat is a main functional movement. The goblet version is unique because, in addition to challenging lower-body strength, it demands upper-body and core stability thanks to the weight's placement in front of your chest. This full-body recruitment makes the exercise a great measure of overall strength and a good way to eliminate weaknesses.

To take the goblet squat test, attempt 25 reps loaded with 50 percent of your body weight using a dumbbell or kettlebell. If you fatigue or your form falters (say, your knees or arches start caving in) before you reach 25, do 4 sets of 8 to 10 reps at 75 percent of your one-rep max 2 to 3 times per week. Rest 90 seconds between sets.

Retake the goblet squat test every three to four months. It's challenging, and most people will fail before they pass. Adding the move to your routine regularly will help you avoid injury and maximize your potential in pretty much every activity or sport.

#mondaymoves Add this to your workout to sculpt your upper body-The Single-leg dumbbell bicep curl

Hold a dumbbell in each hand by your sides, palms facing you. Balance on left leg, with the right out in front of you, bent at a 90-degree angle. (Alternatively, place both feet on the floor, hip-width apart.) Curl the weight up toward shoulders, pause, then return to start. Do all the reps on the left leg, then switch legs and repeat.

For #fitnessfriday this is the pushup you should be doing. This creative twist burns more calories and builds more stability.

The Push-up Row
Start in a high plank, gripping a kettlebell in each hand, with palms facing each other. (Note: The bigger the kettlebell, the more stable you will feel.) Bend elbows behind you, keeping them close to sides, lowering chest toward floor, and then press back up. Once up, pull left elbow behind you, bringing kettlebell up to ribs; lower. Repeat push-up and perform row on the opposite (right) side. Continue alternating sides with each rep.

#fittip The lateral hop is an explosive bodyweight exercise. It targets the lower body, including the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. Performed for reps, it also provides a serious cardiovascular challenge. It can be performed for time or reps and is especially effective in a fat-loss or athleticism-focused circuit or workout.

-Builds muscular endurance and strength in the quads, adductors, glutes, and hamstrings
-Works core strength to maintain balance and upright position
-Improves explosiveness, power, and agility with lateral movement
-Requires no equipment

#wellnesswedness There's nothing better than a cold #eucalyptus towel for your face and neck to freshen up. These can be used for not only post-workout but anytime you are feeling sluggish.

The cold towel combined with the Eucalyptus scent instantly makes you feel refreshed. It not only boosts energy but also has a calming effect and eases anxiety.


–WASHCLOTHS (make sure to use a freshly washed towel with NO fabric softener)


–LARGE GLASS BOWL & GLASS CONTAINER WITH SEALED LID (It’s especially important that the lid closes tightly. If not, the towels may take on the scent of other items in the fridge)

1. Fill a large glass bowl with cold water (filtered water if possible)
2. Mix between 7-10 drops of eucalyptus essential oil with the water in bowl
3. Take a small washcloth and fully soak in water mixture
4. Remove washcloth from the bowl and wring out excess water until the washcloth is damp
5. On a clean surface carefully fold washcloth in half one time and then tightly roll into a long spiral shape.
6. Place towels in tightly sealed glass container and place in the refrigerator. If possible, place the container in separate drawer from other products if space allows.
7. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours for best results

Enjoy and grab towels as needed to refresh after a workout, shower, relax before a nap, use with an ice pack or as desired.

#tuesdaytip Things that will make your morning/day better tip #1: Start your day with lemon-infused water. Not only is it refreshing, but it will also give your organs a nice little hug.

Lemon water can help balance your body’s PH levels and boost your immune system. Not only does fresh lemon water contain much-needed vitamin C, but it also helps the body detox every morning. A glass of lemon water also hydrates the body, thus giving the entire system—from the brain to skin—a refreshing morning ‘wake-up

#mondaymoves Add this to your workout to sculpt your upper body-The Wide grip pull-ups

Grab a pull-up bar with palms facing forward, hands more than shoulder-width apart, shoulders down, core engaged. Bend elbows, slowly pulling yourself up until chin is level with the bar. Slowly lower back to start, and repeat. If needed, use a band or assisted pull-up machine. For a chin-up, perform with hands shoulder-width apart, and palms facing toward you.

#fittip If you're a runner, don't skimp on #strengthtraining. Thes below moves will keep you strong as your mileage builds.

(1) The World's Greatest Stretch (mobility)⁠
Begin in a plank position with hands below shoulders
Step your left foot towards the outside of your left hand. Your right knee should remain above the floor.
Move your left elbow inside towards your left foot. Your hips should remain square and your back as flat as possible.
Continue the movement by moving your left hand outside of your left foot and rotating and reaching the ceiling.
Complete the movement by returning your left hand back to its starting position, left foot returning you into a plank position. Repeat the movement on your right side

(2) Band Knee-Ups (activation)⁠
Wrap resistance band around feet. Stand tall and drive right knee up while mimicking a running motion with your arms (as shown). During the knee drive, maintain a neutral spine and stay tall. The left leg should be stable with the glute active. Perform 10 to 15 reps; switch legs and repeat.⁠

(3) Foam Roller Hip Flexor (movement prep)⁠
Kneel on left leg, with left knee bent 90 degrees, right foot flat and right knee bent 90 degrees. Keeping left glute contracted, extend arms out in front of you at shoulder level, pressing hands down onto the end of a foam roller. Be sure to remove the arch of the lower back by using the glute to tuck the pelvis underneath you. Drive forward slightly, maintaining the posture of the spine. Perform the stretch for 40 to 60 seconds per side.⁠

(4) Foam Roller Legs (movement)⁠
Sit on top of a foam roller and cross left leg over the right. Lean on the hand of the crossed leg and roll in the area that would make up your back pocket (as shown). Move around until you find a sensitive area. Rest on that area until you feel the sensation diminish. Move to another area. Spend 2 to 3 minutes rolling the hips.

Who doesn't love #pancakes? For #wellnesswednesday we bring you Gluten-free blender pancakes, great for post-workout

Instead of using all-purpose flour or pancake mix, this recipe features gluten-free oats, which are ground up along with baking powder and cinnamon.

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of ground cinnamon
2 bananas
½ cup nut milk of your choice
1 cup fresh or frozen berries, plus more for serving
1½ tablespoons peanut or almond butter, plus more for serving
Nonstick cooking spray

Step 1: In a blender, grind oats, baking powder, and cinnamon until a flour forms.

Step 2: Add in remaining ingredients (except for cooking spray) and blend until smooth.

Step 3: Place a nonstick pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Once pan is hot, pour in about ¼ cup of batter. Cook pancakes one at a time for a few minutes on each side.

Step 4: Serve with additional berries and a drizzle of nut butter, if desired.

#tiptuesday Do you lack ankle mobility?

When it comes to the lower body, most athletes focus on large muscle groups and joints, like the quads, hamstrings, and hips. Ankle mobility—crucial for performance—is often forgotten.

You need ankle mobility to produce power for lifts and to accelerate during sprints and plyometric drills.

One way to gauge it is through the knee drive test: Stand in a staggered stance facing a wall with your front foot four to six inches away from it, using your hands for support if needed. Bend your front knee and try to touch it to the wall—without raising your front heel. Repeat on the opposite side. If you fail, you likely lack ankle mobility.

There are a few other signs to look out for: your heels lift at the bottom of a squat, your lower back is often sore, or your calves cramp regularly. (The calves and hips often compensate when your ankles are tight.)

To improve ankle mobility, foam roll your calves for 30 seconds each. Attempt the knee drive test weekly to track your progress.

The chin-up is one of the toughest exercises and are great for your upper-back. It's not uncommon to be unable to complete a single chin-up. If you’re not yet strong enough there are four main progression exercises that will help you build up the required strength – and we want to show you how you can achieve this move at any starting point.

1. Smith Chin-ups
2. Assisted Machine Chin-ups
3. Assisted Banded Chin-ups
4. Full Chin-ups
