WOW! 2-27-17: Core-tastic!

The WOW, or Workout of the Week, is a short workout that you can do on your own as an add-on to your training. These workouts are designed to be mostly equipment free (so you can do them anywhere) and of medium to high intensity. Modify as needed depending on your fitness level and intensity needs.

Make sure to warm-up before each WOW. Some suggestions would be a minute or two of jumping jacks, jogging, or stair walks. Then do two to three minutes of 10 squats, 10 push-ups, 10 half roll backs, and 10 bird dogs. Do the squats and push-ups at an easy-for-you modification. In other words, if you typically do plank push-ups from the floor, do some low incline push-ups for your warm-up.

Our final WOW for the month of February is Core-tastic, and will have your core beggin’ for more.

You’ll do the six exercises in this WOW as a circuit. The first circuit will be 30 seconds (do each exercise for 30 seconds), then you’ll do a second 30 second round, then 20 seconds, and finally finish with 10 seconds of each exercise.

Here are the six exercises:

Hollow Hold
Hardstyle Plank
Iso Russian (designated seconds per side, e.g. :30/:30)
V Pulse Crunch
Double Crunch
Leg Crescent
