Core Workout

Core Workout

It’s time to clean the floors!⁣⁣⁣🧹⁣

Here’s a short and effective workout that will work your core and well, pretty much your entire body. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

And….the only equipment you require is two small towels and a mat. ⁣I normally use sliders so if you have these at home you can use them.⁣⁣

The Workout⁣ ↙️⁣⁣⁣

Perform 10 reps of each exercise (except for push up sliders – do 5 each side) & make sure that’s ⁣x 10 on each side e.g. mountain climbers – 10 reps each leg in and out.  Repeat entire circuit x 4 sets, taking 30 seconds rest between sets.⁣⁣⁣⁣


1️⃣ Knee Tucks ⁣⁣⁣⁣

2️⃣ Mountain Cross Climbers ⁣⁣⁣⁣

3️⃣ Hamstring Sliders ⁣⁣⁣⁣

4️⃣ Push Up Slides ⁣⁣⁣⁣

5️⃣ Plank Pendelums ⁣⁣⁣⁣

6️⃣ Squat Curtsy⁣⁣⁣

7️⃣ Reverse Lunges⁣⁣⁣⁣

Some tips⁣❗️⁣⁣

✅ Maintain a solid plank in exercises 1,2,4 & 5⁣⁣⁣⁣

✅ Core and Glutes (squeeze them tight!) are engaged in all exercises⁣⁣⁣⁣

✅ Wrists and elbows under shoulders in the plank exercises⁣⁣⁣⁣

✅ Hamstring Sliders – do single leg if it’s too difficult to slide both in together ⁣

✅ Keep your shoulder blades relaxed and down⁣⁣⁣

✅ The push up slider is challenging – keep elbows close to your sides as you lower & push back up – squeeze glutes tight here. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

✅ Be careful in the standing exercises – it’s easy to slip, so take your time and engage all your muscles particularly, legs, glutes and core to maintain stability.⁣⁣⁣⁣
