This video is the first in a series where our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, will share exercises using a stability ball. Today's tip focuses on hamstring curls. This exercise not only can improve your hamstring strength, but also works to increase the strength of your core, glutes and quads. Reinforcing all these muscles helps protect your hamstrings from injury. There's also some advanced moves at the end. So grab a ball and a mat and join her!
Today, our National Fitness Director, Olympian Carrie Tollefson, is back with more upper-body strength exercises, this time focused on our triceps. The triceps are a large three-headed (hence the name) muscle on the back of our arms. Watch the video for two exercises you can do to strengthen this muscle. Try and complete sets of 15, 12 and 10 reps each. #trainingtiptuesday
