With fall creeping upon us, kiddos back in schools, and the schedules changing, I have created a few tightening the tushie and strengthening the core workouts. Here is a great way to get in a few simple, yet powerful, body resistant circuits. You don’t need a gym or weights. Just enough space to do a few exercises! Workouts and video included.
These are some of my favorite routines that have generated results in my clients – so YES they are short and sweet and oh so effective. You can try one two or three rounds of each – remember every bit counts so even if you can’t do them all once, do as much as you can.
Watch the videos to see the exercises and then below is the description and key insights to be sure you perform the moves safely and correctly.
Group 1 –
Low Side Lunges – Stay low the whole time you slide from side to side 3 sets 20 each side
Plank Pose – lead with right hand and walk hands: 1. out to side 2. back to start 3. to the front and 4. back to start, then push up. Then repeat on other side leading with the left hand 3 sets of 8 on each side
Group 2 –
Scissors Jacks – arms up and down and feet switch front and back 3 sets 20 each foot
1 leg squat with side arm raise – Bend left leg and lightly touch fingers, straighten leg and lift arms out to side squeezing shoulder blades. 3 sets 12 each side (If balance becomes an issue either keep your back foot on the ground or use a chair to balance
