Get ready to feel strong with this killer core and upper body workout, that will burn so good!!! In this first block we are starting with Up Down Dog. Start in a downward dog position, keeping your hands planted and your feet on the floor if you can –– only go as far as you can without pain. From there, use your keep an active core and think about pushing your shoulders upward and you come forward and look up at the sky. Next up are Simple Side Bends which are a great stretch that will work your obliques. Reach until you feel that burn while keeping your legs stable and planted. Then onto Kneeling Inchworms, which work your deltoids (shoulders), triceps (the back of your arms), chest, abs and even those stubborn bingo wings under your armpits. It’s super important to keep those glutes tight the entire time to make this exercise work well and keep proper form. We’ll wrap up block 1 with the Shoulder Bridge Hold. The shoulder bridge hold seems easy, but you want to make sure you’re really pushing through your hips to keep your legs active as you hold this position. This will engage your core and strengthen your back muscles, be sure to keep your shoulders down so you get the most out of this one. For block 2 we are gonna start with Kneeling Pushups. These are a great starting point to any push up variation. It’s really important to keep perfect form is essential in these to make them effective and learn them properly so you can progress. Make sure to keep your arms at 90 degrees and keep your glutes squeezed and pelvis tucked (don’t arch your back!). Finally, we will finish off this workout with Bicycles. These are amazing for core engagement and if you’re not feeling that burn, make sure you’re keeping your back flat on the ground. Bring your elbow to your knee as much as you can.
