Here’s some Monday Morning motivation! Want to build a stronger core? I know I do and I’m constantly trying to improve.
Start finishing your normal workout routine with a #tabataworkout of core moves or just add this into your #dailyroutine . ••••
3 exercises all challenging the core:
-low plank: shoulders over elbows, push into elbows, back of head to heels as straight as possible, 🍑 butt tight, abs tight!
-high plank with pledge: push up position, tap each shoulder with opposite hand, spread feet apart for a base, keep hips square to the ground.
-high plank with leg lift: push up position alternate lifting each leg straight off the ground, flex the butt cheek of the leg coming off the ground.
3 rounds of each of these tabata style, so 20 seconds of “work” followed by 10 seconds of “rest.” Until you’ve done 3 rounds, which will take you less than 5 minutes! Start your day and week off right and do something active! #activemorning#mondaycore#corework
Today was one of the hardest days to get myself motivated to workout and not because all the #wine I drank yesterday but I just wasn’t feeling it. However I pushed past that feeling and just took it one step at a time getting ready and before I knew it I was on the treadmill getting my butt kicked...oh how I missed @totaltraininglagunahills while I was out on vacation! Felt ridiculously amazing and cured my hangover in a heartbeat! I may have taken a nap afterward but at least I still got it in! Back to the grind of tracking macros (sigh) but I think my body is OK with that! #nevermissamonday 118 workouts so far in 2018! #goals#macros#cardio#tabataworkout
New bodyweight tabata superset workout targeting lower body is on the blog/channel! I did a series of these workouts a couple summers ago and they were a big hit so I’m adding on these next few weeks. 🔥
For each superset, alternate between the two exercises for 8 rounds of 20 sec work / 10 sec rest.
Superset 1: •Donkey Kicks
•Squat Jumps with Jack
•Low Lunge Steps
•Sumo Squat Hops
•Lunge Hop to Kickback
Tabata work out * Five minute warm up * Mountain climbers
* Squat to frog leap
* Plank jacks
* Alternating forward lunge with twist (towards leading leg)
* Greco escape to bridge * Sprint in place
Do each exercise eight times for 20 seconds with a 10 second rest before moving to the next.
Example: Do mountain climber eight times before moving to the next exercise.
Tip: Always keep core engaged and never allow your knee to go over your feet when doing lunges.
Go as hard as you can for those 20 sec #crazynfitwapplegate#tabataworkout
