It's upper body & core Wednesday! Today we will give you this 3-block workout that really works your glutes and your upper body! We’re starting off block 1 with one of the most interesting push up variations - kneeling dolphin push-up. These are great for your shoulders and your mid section. Press your forearms into the ground and keep your shoulders in front of your elbows and press up as far as you can through your legs. Keep those forearms active and squeezed and squeeze those abs as well. Next up are Russian twists. These are going to be amazing for your core. These BURN if you’re doing them right and it’s the best kind of burn! Squeeze your legs together as you balance on your tailbone and bring your hands to tap on either side of you. You want to make sure to stay tall through the top of your head and keep good posture! For block 2 we'll do burpee walk-outs! Sit back through your heels as your hands go to the ground. Use your hands to rock back to your heels. Keep your feet flat. They get your arms and legs doing a lot of work, and they’re also great cardio. When you come down, think about it like you’re bending down to grab something with perfect form, then step each leg back, walk them back up to squatting and stand back up. If you want to ease into squat thrusts or full burpees, try adding a hop at the end of each walkouts. Really put some power behind your legs as you walk them out and then back in. If you haven’t yet, try jumping your legs back forward or jumping up and you finish. Up next, I want to see some more awesome Russian Twists from you! Remember you have done this on the first block and this is an exercise that is tough on the core. Feel that burn by keeping your legs squeezed, your balance on the tailbone and good posture! Block 3 is all about mountain climbers. These are an awesome cardio exercise that will really target your deltoid, which might make you feel the burn in your upper arms. Important form is key for this, and intensity is not the goal here. Make sure you’re keeping your hands active by really pressing into the ground and keeping tension in your arms, while also squeezing your glutes so your pelvis doesn’t sag and your butt also isn’t sticking up in the air. Keep at a comfortable pace as you bring your knees up. You ready?
