Quick and easy energy-boosting exercises
Today I'm sharing some of my favorite anti-fatigue/energy workouts (specifically for bat wings, muffin tops and butt!)
All of these workouts are focused on giving you an extra energy boost and stimulating circulation... because who doesn't like energy? If you're anything like me, you need your energy like you need your air. These three workouts will boost and lift your mood, your energy (so you aren't so exhausted!) and your butt.
Here's why I like each of these exercises:
Tricep dips: Yes they're easy and simple, but I swear by them for the backs of my arms. True story: I used to have bat wings. You know that stuff that flaps in the wind when you wave goodbye? Yeah. Anyway, tricep dips tighten those wings right up. Thank God. This is my go-to when I want a quick energy boost.
Side lunges: Again guys, I'm old fashioned. None of this "hanging from the ceiling with a band" kind of shit. Side lunges are insane for the sides of your legs/butt. You know those inward curves we all want on our butt? Those are from side lunges. Obsessed with good, ol' side lunges. Plus the boost of lunging up and down will give you a quick wake up.
Front lunges: I guess I'm a lunge fan in general? I don't know, I just like what lunging does to my legs, I guess. I notice that it gives me muscles in all the right places without looking too bulky. Lunges are a great, quick way to tighten up and give you a quick kick in the butt aka energy boost.
Other ways to boost your energy? Walk the dog, dry brush, drink tea (I've been obsessed with tea since I've been in Asia... especially peppermint), ride a bike, take care of your skin (I've been loving Garnier’s Ultra-Lift® Miracle Sleeping Cream because it tightens my skin and gives it life), read a positive book (loving this one), go for a lymphatic drainage massage (more on this later) or have a glass of Champagne (I kid, I kid).
What are your quick, easy energy tips?
