Core strength, easy as 1, 2, 3... and 4!  

Monika Zands's curator insight, November 12, 2014 4:52 PM

I spend time doing the 100 DAY Challenge.

I do 100 pushups, 100 squats and 100 crunches for 100 DAYS!!!

It is definitely hard the first week but it gets easier and easier and before you know it, you  have a shelf of a butt and so much endurance.  I did this before my Olympic Distance triathlon and had so much stamina I could have done it twice!!

 

ADDING PLANKS IS A GREAT WAY TO ENHANCE THE 100 DAY CHALLENGE!!

 

I am always looking for amazing people who are eager to get after their goals and just need the community support and reminder that they are capable of achieving beyond what they have done before.

 

If you are seeking that community and you are dynamic, fun and ready to get going you can reach out and find a group of Healthy Active Lifestyle people already getting these kinds of results.

 

teamlovemylife@gmail.com

 

Share your name and your goal and we'll connect real soon!!

 

#MOLO - SPREAD MORE LOVE

Love,

Monika

The Art of Active Sitting

The Art of Active Sitting | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
Spending 8-plus hours at your desk doesn't have to ruin your body. Add these 5 daily movements to your routine.

 

You’ve heard the news by now: Sitting is the new smoking. It’s been linked to an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and early death. Not to mention possible potato-like proportions. But with most of us logging hours at desk jobs (and recovering from hard workouts with Netflix binges), can it really be that bad?

 

Yes, indeed, says Vladimir Friedman, DC, CCSP, of Accelicare Sports Chiropractic in Manhattan. “When you’re in an improper slouched or seated posture for extended periods of time, there is physiological change in the body," he says. "In addition to the proven disease risks, things start to lock up. Tissues can weaken and the effects can be degenerative.” (In fact, Friedman often shows clients how to apply kinesio tape in a crisscross pattern at the low back to teach them how to stay in proper alignment when sitting.) 

 

Friedman likens the idea to time spent in a cast: When muscle tissue is continually immobile, it shortens and shrinks over time and weakens. But give your body a load using your own body weight—from standing to squatting to taking a walk—and the measure of stress provided helps strengthen it.
