Stop! Drop! And Mountain Climb! #FitIn5 Day 4
Today is a little different. I find that when I take breaks during the day and move around a little more, I feel more energized. Our bodies are made to move, so if you have a job where you are sitting for long periods of time, it is a great idea to stop for a minute or two and move around or stretch. This is where Day 4 of the 29 Day #FitIn5 Challenge comes in. Let’s #stopdropandmountainclimb! This may encourage you to #stopdropandmountainclimb or #stopdropandcatcow check it out!
Stop Drop and Mountain Climb for 1 minute five different times during the day which will total 5 minutes of your day. That is not much to ask and you will see how energetic you will feel after. Always modify when necessary but keep it going for the full minute. It is basically plank position with alternating knees to chest, keeping the abs engaged and breathe. It can be done high intensity by picking the feet off of the floor or low intensity by tapping the foot to the floor. Do what you have to do, just keep it moving. Boom!
I would love to see photos! Tag me on IG at @nthefitzone, comment here, or post to my facebook page. Keep it moving and stay positive.
