Welcome to Week 3, Day 3 of the EBOOST Fitness Holiday Challenge!
Each week we are challenging you to focus on your health and fitness for all 7 days each week, including five days of workouts, one full rest day, and one active rest day. This is by no means a strict plan you need to follow. If you have a current workout routine that you are loving feel free to keep at it because you can still participate in our challenge with the chance to win prizes by posting your images on Instagram and tagging @EBOOST, #eboost, and #fitnessholidaychallenge. Each post is an entry into a chance at winning one of our prizes–Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4, EBOOST gift cards and more! To see the full list of prizes, please check out our Fitness Holiday Challenge Overview blog post.
We will also be sharing recipes each week too to keep you inspired in the kitchen! Now grab your POW and let’s get ready to sweat!
Making excuses burns zero calories per hour.
For this week’s lower body routine, we are going to focus on lowering the repetitions and upping the sets of each exercise and focusing more on slower repetitions and paying close attention to the eccentric part of the movement, aka the return to starting position. You will be doing these exercises, keeping in mind that quality is better than quantity and through each repetition thinking of the movement and really isolating your muscles through the execution.
