Stretch Challenge

Alexa Brown

I think that people often underestimate stretching before and after workouts.  I know it can be easy to skip because, if you are like me, you might be ready to move on to the next thing you have going on.  I mean, I know how important stretching is and I really enjoy stretching my muscles, but sometimes I am ready to be done with my workout and move on.  I try to put on a relaxing song to enjoy while I stretch out my muscles, it makes it a little more enjoyable!  When you warm up before starting your workout,...

Arm Challenge

Alexa Brown

Hey!  We are going to burn out our arm muscles in this challenge!  Reading through it might not sound super hard, but your arms should feel incredibly fatigued at the end of the workout.  You can add weights if you want to for an extra challenge.  I am going to use 10 pound dumbbells.  Feel free to choose your own weight or no weights at all.  If you don't have dumbbells, grab a water bottle or something else you have laying around your house for weights.  Enjoy!   20 Bicep Curls (each arm) 20 Tricep Dips 20 Hammer Curls 20...
