Back, Bicep, and Core Workout

Hey everyone!  It’s Home Exercise of the Week time and I have the third part here for you of the three part split routine.  This week we are going to do the Back, Bicep, and Core Workout.  This routine is going to get your arms looking strong and toned and is going to strengthen the ever important muscles of the back.  Strong back and core muscles help prevent back problems as you age and especially if you spend many hours at a desk job, not to mention how great a strong back looks!

This Back, Bicep, and Core Workout does have some dumbbell exercises in them so if you have a set that’s great but if not then grab some stuff around the house that you can lift and curl like heavy soup cans, water bottles, pets, children, etc! 😉

Have fun, work hard, sweat a lot, and be awesome!

Mountain Climber Kickback


Hey there!  I have a new Home Exercise of the Week for you to try and this week we’re going to focus on your core and glutes.

The exercise is called the Mountain Climber Kickback and it will primarily work your abdominals, glutes, and lower back.  It will also isometrically work your shoulders and arms.

Let’s take a look at how to do the Mountain Climber Kickback properly.

  • get in to a full plank position with your hands on the floor and in line underneath your shoulders
  • make sure your body is straight with your head in line with your spine, glutes flexed, and your belly button pulled in toward your spine
  • without raising your hips up too much drive your left knee up towards your left arm and crunch the abs
  • extend the leg back and raise it up while squeezing your glutes
  • repeat for desired amount of reps or time then complete a set with your right leg

So there you have the Mountain Climber Kickback.  Add this in to your workout routine and get your core and glutes burning!

Bird Dog Crunch

Hey there!  It’s time for the Home Exercise of the Week and this week I have a great core exercise to show you.  It’s called the Bird Dog Crunch and it’s going to work your lower back and abdominals.  Also, if you have some back pain the Bird Dog Crunch can help give you some relief.

Let’s take a look at how to do the Bird Dog Crunch properly.

  • get in to the starting position on your hands and knees
  • extend your left arm out in front of you and your right leg behind you until they are in line with your back
  • crunch your right leg in and at the same time try to touch your knee with your left elbow
  • get a good squeeze on the abs then extend back out and repeat for desired amount of reps or time
  • when you are finished with the one side repeat on the other side for the same amount of reps or time

So there you have the Bird Dog Crunch!  It’s a fairly straight forward exercise that is very effective to strengthen your core.

See you next week with another new exercise!
