Day 3 Excy Challenge Theme: Ask yourself a question… “How does exercising benefit those around me?” Today, put your time and energy into exercising for those reasons. Sure, we want to exercise for own personal gain, whether it’s fitting into our clothes, getting a better night’s sleep, doing our personal best in the next race, getting over an injury so we can return to play, etc. But, sometimes it’s nice to explore other reasons outside ourselves for why we want to be healthier. Maybe it’s more energy to play with our kids, to be more productive at work, or to be a healthy role model for the family. Whatever the external reason, invest unconditionally in exercising today for those reasons, and those reasons alone. Sometimes those motivations will keep you inspired when you just don’t feel like exercising.
What You Will Need: Stand-alone Excy, Excy Keeper, and a beach towel or yoga mat. You can add the Excy Bar for more stability (recommended for those just starting out). Some people like to place a pillow under their head while performing this exercise. Hand weights can be added for an upper body workout.
About The Day 3: Core Floor Exercise Bike HIIT Workout
The American Council on Exercise declared bicycle crunches one of the most effective abdominal exercises. But today, we’re going to add a new spin to traditional bicycle crunches for an even better workout and that is using resistance for cycling your legs while also targeting your core muscles. In addition, as a more advanced move, you can also incorporate a favorite yoga, Pilates, and physical therapy rehabilitation move, and that is a basic bridge to really work your core, glutes, and hips. In addition to cycling your legs, use this workout to strengthen your entire midsection by keeping constant tension throughout your core while cycling your legs.
