Reclaiming Fitspo: Santoshi Matsa (మత్స సంతోషి)

Matsa is a 20 year old Indian weightlifter. Standing at 5’1” and 115 pounds, she competes in the 53kg weight class. 

Still in the beginning of her professional career, Matsa is best known for her efforts at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. She was able to lift a total of 188 kg: 83 kg in snatch and 105 in clean and jerk. This originally earned her the Bronze medal, but she was later awarded the Silver when the original champion failed a drug test. This was India`s fifth medal in the weightlifting event after winning two gold, a silver and a bronze on the opening day of the games.

1. Punches: Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Bring fists up to chin level. Brace your core as you punch straight forward with your right arm, twisting from the waist and rotating your shoulder forward for extra power. Immediately bring your fist back to starting position as you punch straight forward with your left fist. Continue alternating sides, or hold a one- to three-pound weight in each hand to increase intensity.

2. Arm Circles: Stand with your left knee at hip level and bent at a 90-degree angle, with your arms outstretched to your sides. Slowly and with control, circle your arms forward for 45 to 60 seconds. Then reverse for 45 to 60 seconds. Switch legs and repeat.

3. Arm Extension to Shoulder Tap: Start in a plank position with your wrists under your shoulders. Your body should form a straight line between the top of your head and your toes. Engage your abs and glutes as you extend your right arm straight out and hold it for one second. Then, use the right hand to tap your left shoulder. Repeat with your left arm and continue to alternate sides. (Source)

Sit on a gym mat with a dumbbell in each hand. Holding the dumbbells out in front of you, bring them down to your right side, only moving your arms. (Twisting at the spine is a big no-no!) Bring them all the way to the left, keeping your spine rigid. Repeat for reps.
