Hey everyone! Last week I gave you an abdominal workout to try so I can imagine your abs were feeling it. If it hurts to cough, sneeze, or laugh then you know you did a good ab workout! This week we are going to go back to a Full Body Workout for the Home Workout of the Week.
There are four supersets in this routine with two rounds of each. Each superset will consist of an upper body exercise, a lower body exercise, a core exercise, and a cardiovascular exercise. Try to do each exercise of the superset with very little rest in between.
Full body workouts are great for boosting your metabolism and for calorie burning so give this workout a try and you’ll be well on your way to a lean, muscular physique!
Hey there! If you’ve been following my Home Workout of the Week blog, you’ll notice that I incorporate a lot of core work in to my routines. This week however, I’m going to show you an abdominal only workout that you can do on an off day or whenever you’re in a time crunch and want to just get a quick ab workout in to tighten up the core.
Training your core is very important as balance, posture, and back health have been linked to core health and your core is the foundation for all body movements whether you’re walking, running, playing sports, or carrying heavy objects.
Many people are sitting at a desk all day at work, then in their vehicles, and then at home on the couch without their core muscles engaged. An increasing sedentary lifestyle with no core involvement leads to many problems with back pain most likely at the top of the list. You can start to change this with something as little as sitting up straight and engaging your core by flexing your abdominals. To further strengthen your core, start incorporating core specific exercises in to your workout routine.
Your core is the most important in my opinion so give this Abdominal Workout a try and you’ll be on your way to improving your posture, balance, exercise and sport performance, and prevent back pain!
1 set of each exercise with little to no rest between
Hey everyone! It’s Home Workout of the Week time and this week’s workout is going to really challenge your cardiovascular endurance.
I have a Plyometric Lower Body Workout for you to try and if you never heard of plyometric training before, it basically consists of powerful and fast movements which will improve the working of your nervous system which in turn will improve your overall performance. Some benefits of plyometric training include enhanced performance, increase in muscle power and calorie burning, and increased endurance.
Plyometric training is not easy and if you have knee and back problems I don’t recommend this workout as there is higher joint impact and increase risk of injury.
The following Plyometric Lower Body Workout is a shorter workout consisting of 5 exercises with jumping jacks in between each exercise. The goal is to do 3 rounds of the superset.
Hello there! It’s time for another Home Workout of the Week. Last week I showed you a Chest, Shoulder, and Tricep Workout and this week we will switch things up and work the muscles of the legs (quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves), the back, and your core.
There are 3 rounds for each superset and to burn some extra calories and increase your cardiovascular endurance, some jumping jacks have been added in to each superset.
Try out the Legs, Back, and Core Workout and let me know how you do!
