I teamed up with Jordan Cornette of The Jam to coach him through some common workout mistakes. Like many of the women who inquire about my weight loss programs for women, Jordan wants to drop a few pounds before the holidays. As a weight loss coach, the last thing I want my clients to do is injure themselves as soon as they start a new workout program!
Here are three simple tips to make sure you get the most out of your workout and are ready for a fit and fun holiday season. And don’t forget to watch the video to get some sweat-spiration from Jordan himself!
Three Tips to Step Up Your Workout:
The Mistake: Improper Alignment
The Fix: Open feet a little wider than the hips and stick your booty back. Turn toes forward so they’re in alignment with your heel. Pull abs in and relax your shoulders. Now, stand up while pressing into your heels and squeeze your tush. The booty squeeze works wonders, believe me.
The Mistake: Knees over toes
The Fix: When you lunge, don’t let your knee go past your ankle. To keep them in proper alignment, focus on going straight up and down, and make sure to push through your heels as you stand. Remember to keep your head up, and—smile!
3. Bicep Curls:
The Mistake: Too heavy weights
The Fix: Avoid getting overly ambitious by pushing yourself with weights that are too heavy for you. The goal is to get through three sets of ten reps. If you’re getting tired from a heavy weight, then your form suffers and your arms flare! Once you’ve determined the right weight, hug your elbows into your body, put your shoulders back, and curl up. Nice!
