Live Big 30 Day Challenge: Day 16

It's day 16 of your Live Big 30 Day Challenge.

Today, you are going to focus on strength training. First, you should kick it off with our 10-minute warm up. Alternate two minutes of jumping jacks followed by two minutes of jumping rope.

Once you're good and warmed up, it's time for your strength circuit. You'll do each of these five exercises for one minute and do as many as you can within that minute. When you finish the set, rest for one minute and then do four more sets. When you are finished you will have completed five sets.

We're going to try something new today and we're going to add in a stability ball.

Single Dumbbell Overhead Squats
Stand in your squat position -- your legs should be open shoulder width. Take your dumbbells, one in each hand. Place one hand above your head and the other hand directly in between your legs and you're going to sit back in your squat position and then back up. Keep in mind your weight is in the back of your heels and your back is flat. Good, when you're done with this set you're going to rotate and switch so your other arm is above your head and your other arm is between your legs.

Split Jumps
From a lunge position, jump up, switching your legs in the air and landing softly in the opposite lunge. Pace yourself, these are very difficult but you can definitely do it.

Jack Knife with Ball
Grab a ball and get into a push-up position with your shins resting on the ball and your palms flat on the floor. Pull your knees toward your chest, allowing your hips to rise to the ceiling and your head to tilt towards the floor. You should stop when your toes are on the ball and your weight is on your hands.

Flies with the Ball
Sit on the ball and roll out until your shoulder blades are on the ball while your legs are at a 90-degree angle. With the dumbbells in your hands lift them directly above your chest you're your palms facing each other, open your arms evenly until they are parallel with the floor while keeping your elbows slightly bent.

Kneel with your arms straight but not locked and your wrists in line with your shoulders, fingertips facing forward and your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Lift your body up so that it is parallel to the floor. Bend your elbows so that your chest can lower towards the floor, then push back up.
