<article> <section> <p>It’s full body and core Friday and today we have awesome exercises that will have your core working hard.</p> <p>We’re kicking off block 1 with something that will challenge your glutes to lift you up through the exercise –– shoulder bridge lifts. They build on the shoulder bridge by adding a lift where you press into your heels to lift your hips and chest up as far as you can.</p> <p>Up next, let’s do some 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.</p> <p>Then we'll do 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!</p> <p>Heading next are 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.</p> <p>Let's have some step jacks as well for this block. 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.</p> <p>Wrapping up block 1 with kneeling dolphin push-up. These are one of the most interesting push up variations! 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.</p> <p>For block 2, we'll do the the same exercises in block 1 but on a reverse manner. So let's start with some more kneeling dolphin push ups! Keep those forearms pressed into the ground as you press up through your legs, and make sure to keep your shoulders in front of your elbows!</p> <p>Then we'll do another round of step jacks! Be sure to keep your body super active with these and make them count. Your arms, legs and glutes should be working to get each rep done.</p> <p>Up next, we'll do some more burpee walkouts, so try to push yourself to do a few more for this block! Put some power behind those legs as you walk them out and bring them back up.</p> <p>I want to see some more awesome Russian Twists from you for this second block! Remember this is an exercise that is tough on the core, so feel that burn by keeping your legs squeezed, your balance on the tailbone and good posture!</p> <p>Then, let’s perfect mountain climbers with this second set! Stay at a comfortable place but keep perfect from without pushing your butt in the air! </p> <p>Wrapping up block 2 with another round of this awesome shoulder bridge lift exercise, so remember to lift up by pressing through your heels and really reaching up to the sky with those hips and chest!</p> <p>Let’s get this workout started!</p> </section> <section> <img style="max-width:100%;"
