Weekly Workouts 8/13 – 8/19

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. I worked on Saturday and then saw Crazy Rich Asians with Jon. We both loved it!  Jon and I read the book before seeing the movie, which I would recommend. Tickets to see a movie in NYC are $16 which is crazy! I could buy the movie for less, but that’s NYC for you.

I’m changing up my weekly workouts a bit and adding a “New Move Monday”. This is a move that I show that you can try during your next workout. This first one is called a goblet squat. You hold a dumbbell or kettlebell against your chest and have a very wide squat stance. This move targets your hamstrings and glutes. This differs from a regular squat which will work your quad more. The key for the goblet squat is to go nice and slow so that you can really have a mind-muscle connection and feel the exercise. Try it and let me know what you think 🙂
