Now that the days are much shorter and its dark super early in the afternoon, I’ve been really motivated planning my workouts, adding new exercises and equipment to switch things up. I have a plan to try to build as much muscle as I can between now and January. Then I’ll be changing my workouts into a different program but I’ll get into that as the time gets closer.
To change things up this week, I’m adding the stability ball into every single one of my workouts. I haven’t used my ball at home much lately, and now, well I don’t have a ball any more. After taking these pictures, I went to work the next day and left my ball in my room. Well, having a crazy bengal that plays with the whole world, by the time I got home, my ball, was no longer a ball, but more of a big rubbery looking thing on my floor full of holes.
I guess Zoey had her fun with the ball before I. Thank goodness for the stability balls being at the gym 😉
+ Stability Ball
+ Gymboss Interval Timer – to time your plank
Complete the following exercises in the exact order below, for one circuit.
Complete a total of five circuits.
15 PIKE PRESSES
30 RUSSIAN TWISTS
10 ROLL OUTS
15 KNEE TUCKS
60 Second DECLINE PLANK
This workout truly puts your core to the test. The decline plank at the final circuit almost killed me! I had to stay very focused on not shaking so badly that I would roll off the ball. That would have been a pretty funny sight for the spin class that was observing my workout. 😉
