Start your day with these 4 exercises

Starting your day with movement can get your day off to a great start. For the last four weeks I have been spending 5 to 10 minutes each morning going through 3 or 4 exercises. For me this has made me feel better. These exercises work on mobility and flexibility. They also help to engage my core. The only piece of equipment you will need is a ball but all these exercises can be done without a ball.

Walking Wide with Twists

Hold a ball with both hands and arms extended. Walk 30 steps and move the ball side to side with each step.

Walking Over the Top

Hold the ball with both hands and hold the ball overhead. As you walk, move the ball side to side. Take 30 steps.

Sweeps

Hold the ball with both hands. Squat down and move the ball from right to left then stand back up. Repeat the movement but move the ball from left to right. Complete 20 repetitions. This exercise helps improve hip mobility and also work on leg strength.

 

Ball Chops

Hold the ball both hands. Raise the ball overhead then chop the ball towards your left foot.  Raise the ball back overhead then chop the ball towards your right foot. Repeat 10 times to each side. Ball Chops work your shoulders, back, and hamstrings.

Try to complete each exercise 3 or 4 times. You can increase the number of repetitions and sets as you improve. Making movement a mandatory part of your morning will get your day off to a good start.
