It’s Workout Wednesday, and while we all (hopefully) can count to one hundred, and we all know what it looks like (“one hundred” or “100”) especially if you’ve played with coins at all. Now you can know what it FEELS like too, because this workout is a breakdown of five awesome moves to do for a total body workout. You can even know what two hundred and three hundred feel like it, if your up for it.
Start by warming up with some stretches of the shoulders, legs and side body for at least five minutes. Stretching feels awesome so longer is definitely not frowned upon here. Then when you’re ready turn on some tunes and go for it!
Try to go all the way through without taking breaks (obviously stop if you can’t go on). If you’re a beginner stop at just one time through, you can always work up to more. Intermediate, take a 1-2 minute break then try going through the workout a second time and advanced should shoot for three times through. As always, drink lots of water and have fun!

Lay on your belly with hand flat on the floor on either side, forearms perpendicular to the floor. Stiffen body and literally push yourself away from the ground, hinging at the toes. When arms are straight hold and with control release your body, hover above the ground and repeat.
Take a big step forward with your left foot, bend your knees and lower your body until both legs form 90-degree angles. Push off with your left foot and stand back up. Do reps, and then repeat on other leg.
Find an elevated surface such as a step, a coffee table over a chair. Place your palms on the surface directly behind your body. Hold yourself up and gently lower yourself down using your arms. When your arms make a 90-degree angle behind you lift yourself back up to the starting position.
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, arms by sides, Squat slowly until both knees are bent 90 degrees and raise arms straight to shoulder level in front of you. Immediately rise out of squat, returning to standing with arms by side.
Hold a weight in each hand, arms at your side with palms facing in. Lift with straight arms and open them into a v-shape until arms are parallel with the floor. Hold then carefully release to starting position.
