I’m a gym rat and a workout-aholic! I’m always scouring the internet, reading health and fitness mags, checking out blogs and keeping my eye’s peeled at the gym. All to get workout motivation and new ideas while attempting to keep my routine fresh and fun. I try them all out and every Wednesday I feature a new and different workout. Why on Wednesday? Well, it’s the middle of the week, which is a great time to mix up your gym routine a bit and re-motivate yourself to finish out the week strong. Plus “workout Wednesday” sounds good (alliteration! My high school English teacher would be proud).
A workout Wednesday might just be one exercise, a great tip, or a whole 30-60 minute routine.
Today’s Workout Wednesday is Hot Foot
If you’re a baseball fan you may know hot foot as the crazy dugout prank that involves a wad of chewed gum and a match book. Basically, one guy sticks the matchbook to a teammates cleat (chewed gum=great adhesive), lights the matchbook and woosh…HOT foot (kids, don’t try this at home).
I’m talking about the hot foot that requires no flammable equipment, but you might feel smokin’ hot after doing it (ha…ha…ha).
Here’s what you do:
Stand on right foot. While keeping your balance, hop around on your right foot like you are drawing an imaginary cross on the floor (front, back, right, left). After 30 seconds switch to the left leg and repeat. Sounds simple enough right? It is, but still effective! Get’s your heart pumping and those leg muscles working! This is a great addition to a fast-paced circuit routine!
Have a happy workout!
