Happy Monday! Here is a Cross Train Circuit to kick off your week. Do each Round 3x for 30 seconds rest between then move onto next round. Use dumbbells or water bottles or water jugs, whatever you have available at home. Keep moving and stay strong.
Move of the Day is a plank to ankle reach to mountain climber. Need a modification? Use a chair to hold the plank (with hands on chair) reach for your calf, then hold one foot off floor, then the other. Video on Instagram
Today’s Move Of The Day is a Squat to Curtsey Lunge. You can do it with TRX Bands, Dumbbells or a Loop. Make sure your weight is in your heels and sink glutes back in your squat. For the Curtsey Lunge step the back leg back far enough that when come down the front knee stays behind the toes and knee is lined up with the ankle. Great addition to your leg day routine.
I love Tabata workouts. They are quick, intense and get the job done. This one is only 3 rounds long and 6 moves you can do anywhere. Set your timer for 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off for 4 minutes. 1 minute break then move onto next round. Alternate the 2 moves each round. Want a longer workout? Do 1 move for the 4 min block so the workout is 6 rounds long.
Burpees/Jacks or Star Jumps
Prisoner Lunges/Mountain Climbers
Squat Jumps/Side Lunge with Hops
My classes loved this workout so much last week they requested to do it a second time. All you need is a mat and you can do it anywhere. Fun, effective, and fast. Get ready to love your ABS.
