13 days of exercises without any extra weight, it’s crazy to think we all get caught up in the weights and machines and forget about teaching our bodies to move correctly with just body weight as resistance!
For this exercise you are going to need a dumbbell, kettlebell, or medicine ball- anything that will add extra weight really! Start standing with your feet hip distance apart. Grasp your weight and hold it right in line with your chest, close to your body. Slowly, sit down and back while maintaining a tall upright posture. Then, squeeze your glutes together to return back to standing.
Your goal is to hold your core tight, sit down and back into your glutes, and then fire them to finish the motion. Starting out, I would do 3 sets of 10-12 reps. This is a great movement to teach yourself balance and core control.
