The only thing I can say about this workout is SORE!
It really made my abs sore, sore and more sore. If you don’t like that feeling in your muscles, then this workout is not for you; really it’s that good! 😉
Believe it or not but I’ve done this workout twice already. Once alone and once after I completed this HIIT workout.
I love sliding workouts because they really put a ton of stress in your core. You are forced to use your abdominals in a different way; which is obviously going to get results. It’s also fun to switch things up all the time, so using a towel (or in my case a kettle place mat) was just a fun way to create a different type of challenge.
Plus, even though this workout is focused on the core, both exercises require upper body strength so you’re obtaining the best of both worlds; upper body & abs!
+ Towel/Cloth or CD disk if you’re on carpet
+ Gymboss Interval Timer
Set your timer for 8 rounds of 20 seconds WORK and 10 seconds REST (aka; tabata)
During each 20 second interval, complete the following exercises; changing exercises after each work interval.
SLIDING MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS
SLIDING PLANK JACKS
I know sometimes you want more than a 4 minute workout and if today is that day check out some of these workouts that would work perfectly with this core workout to create a full body blast in under 30 minutes.
Sometimes it’s fun to throw a few quickie workouts together to create one insane sweat sesh!
