If I'm not "feeling" a workout here and there, I simply do some deep stretching or a light jog as I push the kids to the park. There are so many ways to get movement in every single day. <br><br>If you really want to build up strength, I recommend 3 days of strength training per week. <br><br><u><strong>Total Body Jam</strong></u><br>jump rope - 100 jumps<br>50 <a target="_blank" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBIWpPfc6NY"><font color="#ae40a5">kettlebell swings</font></a> (can also use a dumbbell; i used 25 lbs)<br>25 <a target="_blank" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3LNu_GcgDc"><font color="#ae40a5">resistance band rows</font></a> (w<font color="#3f3f3f">rap resistance band</font> around something stable)<br>15 med ball tosses (squat and as you rise toss a med ball in the air, catching it on the way down to squat again)<br>10 <a target="_blank" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIu8LKTVq9I"><font color="#ae40a5">med ball pushup</font></a> (p<font color="#3f3f3f">lace hands on m</font>ed ball and do pushups; really engages your triceps)<br>repeat 2 more times! <br><br><br></font><br> </div> <hr style="width:100%;clear:both;visibility:hidden;">
