A Quick Upper Body Workout on the Pointe-Nord Esplanade

Finding time to exercise can sometimes seem impossible. Sometimes all you need is a little motivation and Hessam Ghavidel, Pointe-Nord resident and personal trainer to many of the other residents, is walking-talking-human motivation!

We teamed up with him to create a simple workout that takes only a few minutes and can be performed on the Pointe Nord esplanade.

1- Standing Butterfly Crunches 

Target muscles: Abs & obliques

Stand with your hands behind your ears and raise each knee to touch the opposite elbow.

4 sets for each side and 20 reps for each set

With your feet on the ground and your hands on the bench in a push-up position, lift your upper body until your arms are outstretched, and then lower your upper body until your arms at a 90-degree angle.

3 or 4 sets and 10 to 12 reps for each set
