Welcome to week 2 of the #noexcusenovember challenge! By now getting your 30 minutes in should feel like second nature. Did you miss a day? No big deal, just keep moving forward! Are you just now joining us? Welcome, I’m so happy to have you on board for this challenge.

If Oscar can do it, so can you! Grab a furry friend, or borrow one and get out there. First thing in the morning, after dinner or mid afternoon, it’s always a good time to get moving.

I borrowed this fluff ball for 5 miles on Monday and it was great having the company on my longer run.

For week two I’m asking you to add these four toning moves to your routine. Start with your 30 minutes of cardio each day AND do 3 sets of 10 reps or 2 sets of 15 reps of the exercises below. For the forearm plank you may do one time for 60 seconds or 3 x 20 seconds. You may also add 5-10 pound dumbbells to these moves or add more reps if you choose. I filmed a short video demonstrating each of the moves. They only take a few extra minutes each day and work several major muscle groups.

Single Leg Dead Lifts (10 per side)

Half Get Up  (10 per side)

Glute Bridges

Forearm Plank (60 seconds) (Modify on knees as shown)

Would you like to see more videos like this?  What are your favorite toning moves? I’ll be adding a few each week through the end of the month.
