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.
Are you read for some core?
This week’s WOW is all about the core, because – beach season. Psych!
We don’t give an eff about beach season or bikini bodies or what have you, but we do care about you having a strong and functional core so you can continue to enjoy the lazy hazy days of summer, strong and back injury free.
So, get down on the floor, get comfy (but only for a second or two), watch the video for the workout details, and then go through this short, but oh so effective workout.
You’ll go through this workout for two rounds and do each exercise for 40 seconds.
Ready for Some Core?!
Side Plank with Leg Raise Hold
Large Flutter Kick
Make sure to warm-up before each WOW. Some suggestions are 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.
