Day 7: Killer Core Workout
Today’s post : a Killer Core workout with two exercises targeting primarily the obliques and the entire abdominal region : side-lying side crunch and elevated side planks
Side-lying side crunch:
Lie down on the floor-dropping your knees to one side and stacking your legs.
Position your hands behind the head. Lift head and shoulders up to the ceiling, while keeping hips stacked.
Crunch to the one side. For more challenging crunch, add the lift of both knees as you raise the head and shoulders, feeling your side crunch together.
Complete 30 crunches and repeat on the other side of your body.
Elevated Side Plank:
Lie on your side with your bottom hand on the ground underneath your shoulder.
Position your top foot on top of your bottom foot.
Place your top hand on your hip to get into position.
Lift your hips up to form a straight line with your body from head to toe.
Tighten your core, quads and glutes as you raise your hand on your hip to the ceiling
Hold this position. Slowly, gaze up to your extended arm, reaching through the fingertips.
Hold for 30 seconds and breath. Repeat on your opposite side.
