Oh my gosh!
Who’s core is totally feeling it from yesterday’s massively core focused workout?!?!?!
Even though the weight training portion of the workout targets the upper body muscles, the core is also activated in all of those exercises. Like the shoulder pressing…..the lateral raises…..the chest pressing….the ROWS!!! OMG those rows!!!
Then after the upper body weight training circuit, comes the CORE circuit!!! OMG! DYING!!
Seriously though, that workout was hard, but in a good way of course. Hard = more fun later. 🙂
So now after feeling it in my core most of the day yesterday, today I’m feeling pretty good about this core stability ball workout. Which I’m just about to get into…..
Are you guys ready for this one? I have a feeling it’s going to be SUPER intense….!!
+ exercise mat
+ stability ball
Complete 30 reps for each exercise, following the order below for a total of 5 circuit rounds, without rest!
DEAD BUG – each time your hand touches the ground is 1 rep
TORSO TWIST – each side twist is 1 rep
LYING BALL PASS – each time the ball is “hands-to-the-ground” is 1 rep
THE EXERCISES IN ACTION
LYING BALL PASS
Those ball passes are insane!!!
I think it’s pretty much my new favourite stability ball exercise….along with dead bugs….they are INTENSE!
KEEP IN MIND during each exercise to…
+ focus on engaging your core. When you’re lying flat on the ground, pull your belly button in towards the floor. Feel the engagement throughout every core muscle.
+ breathe slowly and exhale on exertion.
+ don’t rush through the reps to try to get the workout done faster. Your not going to feel the exercises the way you should when you’re rushing through the reps. It’s about the QUALITY of your work. Keeping proper form and working with a good tempo.
Work hard girls and I’ll see you guys tomorrow for the final workout of the week!
Only a few rest days before week #1 of the lushious Bikini Body Challenge!
