Welcome back to Workout Wednesday. For this workout, you will need a kettlebell, a set of dumbbells and your SHEFIT Ultimate Flex! You may also want a yoga mat or towel for some groundwork while we work that core! Everyone wants rock solid abs, but we often forget that activating our back and large muscle groups is the best way to build a solid core!
Grab your weights! Let's crush a workout, and activate your bums and your tum!
Time to work our balance while working our legs! Keep a slight bend in your supporting leg. Hinge forward from the hip letting the kettlebell drift down to your shin. Stand straight, driving your hips forward. You can have your opposite leg out behind you or in a crouched position.
Start on your back with knees bent and arms behind your head. Extend one leg out straight (so that it is parallel with the floor), bending the opposite knee and bringing it towards your chest. While in this position bring your shoulder blades off the floor and rotate your chest towards your bent knee. Switch your legs and chest rotation 20 times. You may feel this move activate your lower abs as well as your upper abs.
Start sitting on the ground with your legs bent at the knees. Elevate your upper body so that you create a V-shape. Using weight will add difficulty, or you can do the movement without as a modifier. Twist your torso to the right side, while breathing out. Move to the opposite side in a controlled movement. Repeat.
This is where working your core goes beyond your abdomen. Your back muscles are part of your core and just as important to work in order to avoid injury and improve posture! Start by laying on your back, raise your bottom off the floor so your neck to your knees forms a straight line. Relax and return to the floor. Repeat. Modify by lifting a leg and pointing your toe toward the ceiling.
Start standing with a dumbbell in each hand and feet together. Step one foot back into a lunge, and then step back to starting position. Switch legs and repeat.
To get in a full workout repeat the full circuit 3-4 times trough and end with some light cardio! This workout will be sure to have you feeling the burn. Light cardio and static weight lifting is the perfect time to break out your luxurious Ultimate Flex!
