<article> <section> <p>Happy Monday warriors. We have a core and lower body workout for you today! </p> <p>Block 1 starts off with alternating reverse lunges. Initiate the movement by putting the weight slightly on your heels and hinging slightly forward on the hips. Emphasize the glutes and your front leg, NOT your back leg. Use the hinge of the hip. Keep your torso forward. Act as if you’re going to a sprint. The leg at the front is the one really controlling the movement and feeling the burn in the quadriceps –– just make sure that knee is always in line with your toes. You want to initiate the move by keeping the weight on your front foot and hinging through the hips as you put your back foot back and tap that knee to the ground. The idea is that you’re putting very little pressure on that back foot and using the hinge of the hip and front leg to do the movement.</p> <p>Next we're moving on to feet together squats. Use those legs as you press your knees together and press through your legs! This move helps your hamstrings and ankles, but make sure you’re only going as far as you can while keeping perfect form.</p> <p>Then we'll do drinking birds. These are one of the absolute best exercises you can do for your back, posture and even flexibility. It seems like a simple exercise, but you want to make sure you’re keeping your legs, back and upper body engaged. Once you master this variation, you can move on to one-legged exercises that will help strengthen your legs and feet. That might sound weird, but strong feet will prevent plantar fasciitis, ankle pain and other pain in your legs. Be sure to keep your feet planted straight and really focus on keeping the weight on them as you push your butt backwards for this move.</p> <p>Wrapping up block 1 with 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.</p> <p>Let's perfect kneeling hip ups in block 2. These strengthen your obliques which can help with back pain and slimming down your sides. Keep your elbow and arm pressed into the ground as you stack your knees in line with your elbow, keeping that bottom leg planted on the ground for stabilization. You should feel those obliques firing hard as you lift and lower your hips. Great for core stabilization and your obliques are going to fire so hard in every single rep.</p> <p>Let’s get this workout started!</p> <section> <img style="max-width:100%;" 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 class="sub-head">20 seconds work |10 seconds rest |8 rounds</div> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/ALTERNATING-REVERSE-LUNGES.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/ALTERNATING-REVERSE-LUNGES.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>ALTERNATING REVERSE LUNGES</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/FEET-TOGETHER-SQUATS.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/FEET-TOGETHER-SQUATS.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>FEET TOGETHER SQUATS</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/DRINKING-BIRDS.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/DRINKING-BIRDS.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>DRINKING BIRDS</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/MOUNTAIN-CLIMBERS.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/MOUNTAIN-CLIMBERS.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS</p> </div> </div> </section> <section> <img style="max-width:100%;" class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/Block_2.png" alt="Round One"> <div class="sub-head">60 seconds work |5 seconds rest |2 rounds</div> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-HIP-UPS-LEFT-SIDE.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-HIP-UPS-LEFT-SIDE.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>KNEELING HIP UPS LEFT</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-HIP-UPS-RIGHT-SIDE.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-HIP-UPS-RIGHT-SIDE.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>KNEELING HIP UPS RIGHT</p> </div> </div> </section> </article>
