Let’s get to work!
KNEE TUCK CRUNCH
Start on all fours. Exhale as you draw your knee in and up towards your chest as far as you can. This is your start position. Inhale and extend your leg back and upward until it’s fully extended. Exhale and your knee back in and up towards your chest to complete one rep. Complete the same number of reps with both legs to complete one set.
Stand with your feet apart. While holding a weight with both hands, lift the weight up and across to one side. Your feet should pivot to help you extend the weight back and to the side. This is your start position. Pivot your feet as you rotate the weight down and across your body toward the opposite corner. Reverse the movement, lifting the weight back up and back across your body to the start position. One full ‘chopping’ movement counts as one rep. Do the same number of reps on the other side to complete your set.
SIDE PLANK PULSES
A side plank is your start position. Lower your hip down to the floor, then immediately lift your hip back up to the start position. Continue pulsing your hip up and down, quickly racking up reps until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn, do 5 more. Switch sides and repeat the movement on the other side to complete your set.
Start in a modified plank position on your elbows. Keep your core tight rotate your hips as you dip down to one side. Immediately reverse the movement dipping your other hip down to the opposite side, to complete one rep. Tip: Only use your core muscles to lower your hips down. Keep your spine neutral, don’t pitch your booty up.
THREAD THE NEEDLE
Get in a side plank with your upper arm extended overhead. This is your start position. Rotate your arm down and under your body, threading it through the negative space between your body and the ground, as if you’re drawing thread through a needle. Reverse the movement and return to the start position to complete one rep. Do the same number of reps on the other side to complete one set.
Lie on your back with knees bent and hands behind your head. Lift your legs up, keeping your knees bent. This is your start position. Exhale and pull your knees in toward chest as far as you can, lifting your hips up and off the floor. Inhale and lower back to starting position to complete one rep. Tip: Extend your arms out to the side for support.
