7 Exercises Your Body Wishes You Would Do

from RealBuzz via Yahoo

When it comes to working out, the key to being successful is a healthy balance of flexibility, muscular strength, and a strong core. Here are the seven exercises your body wishes you would start doing to give you the perfect workout balance and make you stronger than ever.

Modified press-ups for stronger shoulders

Did you know there is a muscle on the side of your chest called the serratus anterior that is the key to stronger shoulders? This small but mighty muscle helps your shoulder blades move, and you can develop it by making a small modification to the classic press-up movement known as the ‘pushup plus’. Perform a regular press up until the final motion when you push your body back up, and then raise your upper back slightly upwards as you move. Hold for a couple of seconds, and then bring back down. If you’re doing it right, you should be able to feel and see extra movement in your shoulder blades.

Wall slides for stronger knees

Your knees are the weight bearing joint for so many exercises that strengthening them is almost a no brainer. You can do this with a simple exercise known as wall slides, and all you'll need is a medicine ball and, surprise surprise, a wall. With your back against the wall, stand with your legs at roughly shoulder width, and place a medicine ball between your knees. Without taking your back off the wall, slowly slide down the wall, bending your knees until you are almost in a sitting position without letting the medicine ball fall from between your legs. Not only does this great exercise strengthen your knees, it also works your core muscles and quadriceps as well. more
