Today’s NTC program calls for a rest day, so what does that mean when it’s Juneathon? A run!!! A nice 4 k run for half an hour of exercise plus some squats, sit ups, weights (rows, bicep curls, & shoulder press), wood chops, and some very short planks. After a long and mentally stressful day at work, nothing beats a run with myself. I am so in love with running…. After I pass the first 7 minutes, haha.
One of my favourite weight exercises to do now are shoulder presses. These make me feel like a hero! It doesn’t matter if I am doing them with 3 lb or 10 lb weights.
Here’s how to Shoulder Press:
1. Stand feet hip-width apart and arms holding weights (or start with no weights)
2. Bring both arms up to shoulders with elbows bent
3. Raise your arms up above your head and lower down half way to bent position again
4. Repeat for reps of 10 or do as many as you can for a minute
Happy Running & Shoulder Pressing!
