Happy Monday Warriors. Were going to get the week started by really activating your core and lower body! This workout will have your legs working hard. In block 1, we begin with simple side bends. They are a great stretch that will work your obliques. Reach until you feel that burn while keeping your legs stable and planted. Next in this block we have 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. Wrapping block 1, we'll do step jacks. Keep this whole exercise active by really pushing up your arms and stepping out your legs. These will get your heart rate up and leave you feeling amazing. If you’re not doing them right it can seem super easy to just step back in forth, but you want to make sure you’re keeping those arms active and really using those glutes to push your legs out. If you’ve been doing step jacks, I want to challenge you to try a few jumping jacks –– remember not to stomp your feet as you come down and take it slowly if you’re having difficulties. For block 2, we will do sit to stand. Use your bigger leg muscles (quads and hamstrings) instead of your knees as you stand. Keep your core engaged as you bend down through the hips and come back up. It’s as simple as sitting down and standing, but concentrate on keeping a flat back and engaged core. Sit back through your hips as you come down. Block 3 is all about bicycles. Don’t clasp your fingers or support your head with your hands. Fingertips on the back of your head, not grasping hands on the back of your head. Make sure your lower back is maintaining contact with the ground. Bring your elbow to your knee as much as you can. 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. These are a great dynamic exercise that will get a number of muscle groups working. Try to keep your leg straight at you bring your bent leg to your opposite arm, and keep a pace that keeps perfect form. Now let’s feel the burn from the core and beyond! <div class="text-center my-5 hidden-sm-down"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/Block_1.png" alt="Round One"> </div> <div class="text-center my-5 hidden-md-up"> Block 1 <hr> </div> <h4>60 seconds work |5 seconds rest |4 rounds</h4> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/SIMPLE_SIDE_BENDS.gif" alt="SIMPLE SIDE BENDS"> <p>SIMPLE SIDE BENDS</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/SHOULDER_BRIDGE_HOLD.gif" alt="SHOULDER BRIDGE HOLD"> <p>SHOULDER BRIDGE HOLD</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/STEP_JACKS.gif" alt="STEP JACKS"> <p>STEP JACKS</p> </div> </div> <div class="text-center my-5 hidden-sm-down"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/Block_2.png" alt="Round Two"> </div> <div class="text-center my-5 hidden-md-up"> Block 2 <hr> </div> <h4>20 seconds work |10 seconds rest |8 rounds</h4> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/SIT_TO_STAND.gif" alt="SIT TO STAND"> <p>SIT TO STAND</p> </div> </div> <div class="text-center my-5 hidden-sm-down"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/Block_3.png" alt="Round Two"> </div> <div class="text-center my-5 hidden-md-up"> Block 3 <hr> </div> <h4>20 seconds work |10 seconds rest |8 rounds</h4> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <img class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/BICYCLES.gif" alt="BICYCLES"> <p>BICYCLES</p> </div> </div>
