Have you ever had a delay at the Raleigh-Durham Airport and wondered what could be done between flights to pass time? Get fit by planning early. Wear comfortable, breathable clothes and a quality pair of sneakers to the airport to take advantage of the lay-over time. Why neglect your daily workout when you don’t have to? If you’re comfortable in your own skin and don’t mind people watching you as you workout, then get onboard. Do not worry about what others are thinking because 9 times out of 10 they are envious of the fact that you have the courage to take control of your personal fitness regime.
A Healthy Dose of Confidence
Warming up is important to prepare the body for exercise and get blood flowing through muscles, so we start by running in place. Next we work on lower-body exercises to further supply nutrient filled blood to our lower extremities to cleanse out toxins and rejuvenate joints, all while increasing core body temperature.
Instructions: Perform in repetitions of 10, 15 or 20 up to 3 times to do a SUPERSET or CYCLE through the exercises and then repeat for the preferred amount of sets.
Running In Place – Run in place for 5 minutes. Make sure you squeeze abdominals tight and breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth.
3 –Way Squats (At no point should your knees extend beyond your toes)
- Frontal Squat – Place legs shoulder length apart and lower body in a squat, when rising squeeze gluteus without locking knees.
- Plie Squat – Stand in an extra wide squat and turn toes out and away from body, then lower body into squat, when rising squeeze gluteus without locking knees.
- Wide Squat – Separate legs one to steps outside of shoulders, toes facing the front of body, then lower body into squat, when rising squeeze gluteus without locking knees.
Lunges – (At no point should your knees extend beyond your toes)
Stand up straight, shoulders squared, extend right leg forward then lower body into lunge position, when rising squeeze gluteus without locking knees. Switch sides.
Chair-Tricep Dips – Find a sturdy chair and place hands on end of seat. Legs should be bent and out of the way of traffic to ensure safety of you and other passengers walking by.
Abdominal Knee-Ups – As you lift body up from Tricep Dips, extend right leg, toe pointed, and then drive knee into chest as you lower body. Switch sides.
Cool-Down – Sit on floor in crossed-legged position and imagine floating high in the sky on a cloud.
