Supercharged Strength Training Exercise Routine Welcomes to month three of preventions amazing defy your age challenge. You can probably feel and see the effects of the program already. But you’ve got one more month of super charged strength moves to help you turn back the clock. For the winch up, you're going to want to start by making sure that your resistance band is anchored underneath something heavy such as the leg of a piece of furniture. Squat back and then twist from the abs lifting the band up and over the opposite shoulder as you squat, you’ll work your gluts and thighs. Twisting will activate your abs and reaching the band overhead will work your arms. As you lower the resistance band make sure you do so slowly so as to get the full benefit of the resistance. In this move make sure that the resistance band is nice and secure under your shoes. You don’t want it to snap up at you as you exercise to really fire your triceps when you hinge for at the waist. Rotate your palm so they face one another, also keep your abs nice and engaged this will avoid you putting any string in your back during this exercise. For this kneeling push up you're going to start out on your knees with the ankles crossed. Hands are going to be underneath the shoulders almost as wide as the net. As you lower down to the push-up inhale bending the elbows wide exhale as you press back up t the height of the push-up and keep the abs drawn in so you're really staying at a straight line from head to knees. This move tones your shoulders and triceps and the backs of your arms. Even though you’re seated, don’t slouch keep your shoulders back and your abs drawn in and your legs pressed down onto the floor. Press the band up but as you lower back down, use the same amount of resistance. This way, you get double the toning. Lunges are great for toning your thighs and gluts. And in this move we have the bicep curl to tone the front of your arms too. As you lower back to a lunge make sure you go down until your front thigh is parallel with the floor. For the biceps curls keeps your elbows in place along your side. Don’t let the move too far to the front or back. This way you’ll get the best workout.
