Based on the positive feedback from my recent gym workouts, I wanted to share a few more exercises you can do in the gym or at home.
1. Plank Row to Burpee
Grab a set of dumbbells with flat edges (for stabilization) and get ready for an amped heart rate while strengthening your entire body.
Feel your core (and specifically your obliques) aiding in this full body movement. Remember to use your legs to get low instead of your back.
Essentially, this is a squat to overhead press moving at a fast pace. Emphasize hip depth and extension.
4. Crazy Russian Twists
This is a variation on the Russian twist that targets those obliques. This move requires more upper body and core stability. Stay on one side, then switch halfway. Lightly resting your heels on the ground is fine as long as your torso is at a 45 degree angle.
Use a wider stance than your normal squat and add a dumbbell or kettle bell for added resistance and upper body work. Obviously, I was weaksauce and needed a heavier kettle bell.
I set my Gymboss timer to a work for 30 seconds and rest for 10 seconds for 5 sets for each exercise. Complete all sets before moving to the next exercise. The interval options are limitless, so you can adjust as needed.
