I’m pumped for today’s core workout. Remember last week when I shared this 6 minutes of Bodyweight Planks Workout? I told you guys there would be more plank workouts coming – and I didn’t lie! 😉
This plank workout is slightly different from last week’s. There are only two plank exercises which are both very similar, and this workout is shorter because there isn’t any rest this time! It’s basically holding an elevated plank, and making it harder by switching between single leg and both legs.
Lots of fun on a Wednesday!
After this workout, I’ll be doing a mix up of some recovery exercises, working with the lacrosse ball and foam roller. I might even do a yoga video! I’m off work today because I have an appointment to attend, so I’ve got all morning to workout! There might even end up being another workout done for the core. I was thinking of bringing back this Sore Core Tomorrow Workout. I haven’t been using the stability ball much lately…and today, there’s lot of time!
It’s a great feeling!!!

Start the timer, grab a hold of the kettlebell handles and begin with the single leg hands elevated plank. As soon as the timer hits the next 20 second round, switch legs. Then for the next round, lower your raised foot to the floor and hold this plank for 20 seconds.
Continue this until the 4 minutes are up!
THE EXERCISES IN ACTION
single leg hands ELEVATED
Don’t even think about it. Just do it!
I know you can!!!!
Don’t think about the time. Or anything negative for that matter! It’s only 4 minutes! YOU CAN!
During your planks, forget about the time, and focus on engaging your muscles within your entire body. Planks not only work your core, but your shoulders, your chest, your back, your hamstrings, your glutes…..they get the body working that’s for sure! Use every single muscle within your body to help hold yourself up for the entire 4 minutes.
Believe in yourself.
Believe that your muscles CAN.
Believe that you ARE STRONG enough.
Before you know it, the timer will stop and you’ll be feeling incredible!
Pat yourself on the back girl, you rock!
I’ll see you guys tomorrow morning for the next workout in the Lushious Bikini Body Challenge. Hamstrings & quads! (aka; thighs!) 🙂 Have an awesome day! And be sure to tell everyone about how you held a 4 minute elevated plank!!
Be proud! 🙂
