Plyometrics

Hi fiends! Welcome!

Today, I am going to share with you some of my favorite plyometric/jumps moves. Plyometrics is one of the most effective ways to burn fat. It is one of my favorite ways to workout because it works the entire body including the heart plus I just find pleasure in jumping around 🙂

File Aug 11, 3 42 19 PMMy first tip: Always jump from the bottom; knees first, it allows for more power and momentum.

My second tip: Always land softly. I personally like to land toes first, then bend my knees and then finally I let my heels touch down.

My start and end position are very similar. They both look like the picture above. I find that this is easy on my joints and I am able to jump higher and for longer periods when I use this method.

A simple way of making and move more challenging is by adding weights.

Again start from a bottom position and then jump up whilst bringing the knees up to meet your palms. Be careful not to bend over too much. Keep your chest up. The idea is for he knees to go up to meet the palms not the palms go down to meet the knees.

I have a thing for martial arts and a secret love affair with Chinese movie star Donnie Yen. I dream of being in a movie with him where I can be a bada*s ninja, dragon, dragon monkey, monkey, or whatever…just put me in a movie with him and I’ll be the best whatever hahaaa.

In preparation for our movie together. I’ve been working on my air kicks. Unfortunately, I wasn’t born very flexible so it’s taking a while, but I’ll get there.

I’m wearing one of my fave outfit combos. The shorts are super comfortable and affordable and I find them so cute. I love the colors and the cinching at the sides.

The top is also very comfortable. It is great for intense workouts cuz it has that wicking? technology thing going on and keeps me comfortable even as I sweat through my workouts. It was a little too loose for my personal comfort so I tied it in the back. It is very dear to my heart cuz it was a gift from Zel.

Also remember, I am no professional.  You practice what I preach at your own risk 🙂

Ok bye. Love you!
