Today is all about the Core. I’ll be doing some exercises for the abs, obliques, lower back and middle back… all with body weight -no dumbbells or barbells today.

Here we go!

Morning Workout:

Woke up late today, so I decided to do some stair climbing in place of my morning run. This I do at work; my building has 8 flights of stairs so I climb them during my 10 minute break just before starting my work day 🙂

  Evening workout

15-20 minute walk or run at the park

Complete 3 sets of 20 reps for the following:

  • Alternate Heel Touch -(works abs) See proper form HERE
  • Flat Bench Leg Pull-In (works abs)  See proper form HERE
  • Oblique Crunches -(works obliques) See proper form HERE
  • Ball Hyperextension -(works back) If you don’t have a ball, place a pillow on the seat of a chair. See proper form HERE

Complete each exercise for 1-2 minutes (I prefer until failure):

  • Dead Bug – (works abs) See proper form HERE
  • Plank – (works back and abs)  See proper form HERE
  • Superman -(works back)  See proper form HERE

 

That’s it! Take that post-workout shake and chug it down because you deserve it 🙂

 

Much Love,

~Virginia
