Need a quick, but effective core workout that you can do AT HOME, with very minimal supplies? Keep reading!
Rather watch the workout? Check out the demonstration video below!
Things you’ll need:
Do each one of the exercises back to back (resting after the last exercise is complete) for 2-3 rounds!
8 Push Up to Slider Pike
Starting in a hiked position (see image 1), with feed securely on the sliders, firmly push back your feet until you are in a plank position (see image 2). When in this position, go down into a push up (see image 3), back to plank position, then back to hike position.
8 (each arm) Slider Reach
Begin in the same position as you would when performing “girl push ups” (see image 1). Make sure a slider is under one hand, then gently slide that hand directly out in front of you (see image 2) – keeping your core engaged and torso NOT touching the ground. Use your core to push yourself back to the starting position. Repeat this 8 times on EACH side.
8 (each side) Bird Dogs
Start with your left arm and right knee firmly on the ground, and your left knee and right arm crunched (see image 1). In this position, you should really feel your core engaged. Balance yourself, and stretch out the crunched arm and leg until they’re parallel to the ground (see image 2). Repeat 8 times EACH side.
8 (each side) Plank Knee Tuck
Start with both hands and one foot planted on the ground. The leg that is not on the ground should be raised as far back behind you as you can go (see image 1). Take the raised leg and crunch it in – your knee should be barely between your arms (see image 2). Repeat this 8 times for each leg.
8 (each side) Plank Pull Through
Begin in a side plank position, with one arm pointing to the sky (see image 1). Take the arm that is in the air, and use your core to pivot your body to allow your arm to go through the space between your body and the ground (see image 2). Repeat this 8 times on each side.
20 Plank March
Begin in a regular plank position (see image 1). One by one, drop down to your elbows (see image 2). Then, press back up into a plank. Repeat this process 20 times.
