Babes! It's a gloomy day here at home in NJ so I'm just gonna to cling to some sunny Florida memories 😫☀️ Give these 3 bodyweight moves a go -- they may not look like much, but these combo moves will challenge your arms and core like crazy 💪🏼🔥🔥 Complete as many rounds as you like, with as little rest as possible. These moves are slightly sped up, so take them slow and controlled and emphasize form over speed and reps 👌🏽let me know if you give it a try! 😘👊🏼❤️
☀️Perform as many rounds as you like!☀️
1️⃣Downward dog combo (90s)
👉🏼From a plank position, press back into a downward dog and hold the stretch. return to plank. hug your elbows to your side as you lower yourself to the ground (like the first half of a tricep pushup -- lower knees to modify).
👉🏼uncurl your toes so the tops of your feet lay flat on the ground. Press up into an upward dog, allowing your head and shoulders to reach to sky while hips remain close to the ground.
👉🏼lower back to your mat and curl your toes underneath you. Press back up to plank while keeping your elbows hugging your sides (lower knees to modify). Repeat
2️⃣Side arm plank with twist (30s/side)
👉🏼come into a forearm side plank with hips and shoulders stacked. Use your obliques to keep your hips lifted. 👉🏼Feet can stack, or for more stability you can stagger them as I show. You can also lower the bottom knee and shin to the ground to further modify
👉🏼reach your top hand to the sky, then without allowing your hips to lower, twist and reach your hand underneath you.
👉🏼Hold this twist, as though you are wringing out your core. carefully unfold and return to start position.
3️⃣V tuck to V lift (60s)
👉🏼place hands slightly behind your hips. Inhale as you lean back and lengthen your legs long, allowing abs to stretch.
👉🏼Exhale as you press your torso forward and draw knees towards chest -- really contract abs as you do so. You can gently support w/hands, but make sure the work comes from your core
👉🏼Inhale as you lengthen, fully releasing the contraction in your abs and restretching. Exhale as your press your torso forward, this time lifting straight legs to the sky as you contract abs.
