For your online fitness program, if you are looking for a couple of exercises to enhance your workouts, give you variety and stimulate results, here are a couple of exercises that will make a great addition to your online workout.
Single Leg Row
The single leg row is an exercise involving your entire body that promotes strength, balance and stability. Balance is improved by standing on one leg and bending forward with a flat back. Stability is improved through the ankle, knee and hip while standing on your plant foot and your back is held in a stable position to hold the upper torso in alignment while performing the rowing motion at the upper back and arms.
This exercise is an excellent addition to any intermediate to advanced program for those looking for a challenge to improve their total body strength and function while burning a lot of calories.
Stability Ball Pushup
This exercise is a great addition to a strength and stability program. Used with an exercise ball, the pushup is performed as you would on the floor except your hands are on the ball. What makes this exercise so effective is the element of instability provided by
the potential 360 motion of the ball as you try to hold it in place while doing a pushup. Holding the ball still works the core, from the hip to the lower back and abs.
The movement at the shoulder forces the shoulder complex to hold the ball in a stable position, and the result is a stronger, more stable shoulder joint that can serve better function in real world activities and sports while decreasing the risk of injury.
