If you're like us, you may not be quite ready to go back inside the gym. But, the bod is screaming for stretches, strength and solutions. We checked in with Smyrna fitness guru, Kellie Shirley and asked her for three moves we could do in our home or backyard. Thanks Kellie! We'll be thinking of you while we dip into a second serving of Thanksgiving stuffing.
Bodyweight Squats (strength)
Keep the chest tall with shoulders back. Sit back in your heels and drop weight until your knees are at 90 degrees. Push through heels to reset at top.
Ice Skaters (cardio)
Drive weight through heels to jump from side to side on one foot, increasing heart rate. Jump from either side for a challenge or tap foot for a modification.
Half V-Ups (flexibility/core)
Lay flat on back and use upper body momentum to meet knees at the top. Engage core and breathe. Reset at bottom and repeat.
