MOVE IT MONDAY: CHASE WEBERJanuary 18, 2016 8:14 am
We discovered celebrity personal trainer Chase Weber the same way we find anyone these days–Instagram. After seeing his client roster ranging from Geri Hirsch of Because I’m Addicted to Monica Rose, we knew we had to get in touch. We asked Chase to give us a kick-ass workout that we could do at home–and he seriously delivered. Get ready to sweat with his full-body tone routine, below:
Lung Dips with Flys:
You can execute this move using a table chair. Prop one foot up and plant the other firmly stable on the ground. Once you have established solid footing, drop your back knee 6-8 inches. As you are going down, raise your arms to your side. As you stand up, drop your arms down. Be sure to keep your hands pronated and thumps up. This exercise works thighs, glutes, and helps correct posture. Do 3 sets of 12 reps.
Elevated Single Arm Plank Holds:
This exercise attacks the shoulders, triceps and obliques forcing your core to go into overdrive. Stack your feet on top of each other and rotate your hand underneath your body, keeping your elbow close to you. Rotate the arm and reach for the sky. Continue to do this at a controlled pace for 20 reps and switch sides.
This is a great way to work your hip abductors and gluteus medius. Stand on one leg with a slightly bent knee and jump laterally with height and distance. Land safely on the opposite leg with a slight bend and continue to jump laterally for 30 reps. This will help get your heart rate up and give your legs a good burn. This is a great way to incorporate cardio while working out. Do 4 sets of 30 reps.
Plank Hold with Arm Raises:
Start in a push up plank position. Raise your arm up without swaying your body back and forth. Keep your hips parallel to the ground as best you can! If you are more advanced you can add a push-up between alternating arms. This is a great way to work on your core and shoulder strength-stability. Do 3 sets of 20 on each arm–alternating or individually.
Split Leg Abs:
This movement works the inner thighs, abdominals, and hip flexors. Lay flat on your back with your legs up together and hands behind your head. Tighten your core drawing your belly button into your spine. Once this is established, spread your legs into a V-position and reach between your legs with both hands to squeeze into a crunch. Close your legs and put hands behind your head to begin the position again. Do 3 sets of 25 reps.
