February LOVE Challenge: Days 22-28: Elbow Planks

It's time to move on to the last move of the February Lean Girls Fitness LOVE challenge  - we've been spelling out the word LOVE with our challenge moves and today we're moving on to elbow planks for the letter E. Start with a 20 second elbow plank and add 20 seconds each day.


An elbow plank is a great basic move to work your core. Just get into plank position, but instead of extending your arms, rest on your forearms.Your legs should be hip-width apart and your arms should be about shoulder-width apart. Keep your back straight. Just use the timer on your phone to time yourself.

February LOVE Challenge: Days 15-21: V-Raises

Valentine's may be over, but the February Lean Girls Fitness LOVE challenge isn't. And since there's no better way to show your body some love than to exercise, we're spelling out the word LOVE with our challenge moves. Today we're moving on to v-raises for V. Start with 5 and work up to 35 by the end of the week. Feel free to break them up into sets if you need to. 


V-raises work your shoulder muscles, biceps, and forearms. All you need is a pair of dumbbells - if you're a beginner, use 2 or 3 pound weights. If you're more advanced, feel free to use 5 or even 8 pound dumbbells.

To do a v-raise, stand straight with your legs hip-width apart. Hold a weight in each hand at your sides. Exhale and slowly raise your arms at a 45 degree angle to about shoulder level. It's halfway in between a front raise and a side raise - your arms should be making a V. Briefly pause, then inhale and slowly lower your weights to the starting position.

February LOVE Challenge: Days 8-14: Overhead Presses

Today, we're moving on to the next move in the February Lean Girls Fitness LOVE challenge. February is the month of love and there's no better way than to show your body some love than by exercising - you'll look and feel better. We're spelling out the word LOVE with our challenge moves - today we're starting overhead presses for O. Start with 5 and work up to 35 by the end of the week. Feel free to break them up into sets if you need to. 


Overhead presses work your deltoids (shoulder muscles), biceps, and triceps. And since you're lifting your weights overhead, they also work your core muscles. All you need is a pair of dumbbells - if you're a beginner, use 2 or 3 pound weights. If you're more advanced, feel free to use 5 or even 8 pound dumbbells.

To do an overhead press, stand straight with your legs hip-width apart. Hold a weight in each hand at your shoulders with your palms facing forward. Exhale and slowly straighten your arms to lift the weights overhead. Briefly pause, then inhale and slowly lower your weights to the starting position.

For February, we're doing the Lean Girls Fitness LOVE challenge. February is the month of love and there's no better way than to show your body some love than by exercising - you'll look and feel better. We're going to be spelling out the word LOVE with our challenge moves - starting with leg lifts for the letter L. Start with 10 and work up to 70 by the end of the first week. Feel free to break them up into sets if you need to. Double leg lifts are great for working your quads and abs! Lie down on your back with your arms by your sides, palms up. Start with both your legs pointed straight up the sky. Slowly lower the legs together to about 2 or 3 inches off the ground and then raise them back up.
