Week 8: Core and Abs

Adding core work to your workouts will help you become leaner and stronger by allowing you to have a greater range of motion, lift more, and work harder without the risk of injury.

Equipment Needed:

  • Sliders
  • Kettlebell
  • Dumbbell
  • Swiss Ball

Exercises:

  1. Swiss Ball Rollouts* x 8 – 10 reps
  2. Kettlebell Reverse Crunch** x 8 – 10 reps
  3. Slider Body Saw* x 8 – 10 reps
  4. High Plank Dumbbell Pull Across* x 8 – 10 each side

* Be sure to squeeze your glutes (bum muscles) throughout the whole exercise. This helps activate your core and takes the pressure off your lower back.

** When lowering your legs, make sure your lower back is pressing into the floor.
