Hey everyone, it’s time for a new Home Exercise of the Week! The exercise this week is one that is challenging and honestly not a favourite of many but it is a very effective core and cardiovascular exercise! They are Moguls!
Moguls target your abdominals, especially your obliques, but they also work your chest, shoulders, and triceps from holding yourself in the plank position. Your legs and glutes will also get a good workout from this exercise.
Let’s take a look at the key points to doing Moguls properly:
start in a full plank position with your knees off the ground and tucked in underneath you
while flexing your core, jump your feet out to the side while keeping your knees tucked in and dropping your hip close to the ground
from this side position, jump all the way to the other side and drop your hip down again close to the ground
keep jumping from side to side at a fairly quick pace while keeping your core flexed and your knees tucked in underneath you
So there you have Moguls. It’s challenging, your heart rate will be up, your abs will be burning, you’ll be sweating, but in the end you’ll be glad you did them and they will get easier the more you do them!
Leave a comment below and let me know how you do. You can even curse me for presenting this crazy exercise to you!

Hey there! It’s time for another Home Workout of the Week and this week I have part two of a three part split routine. This workout is going to focus on the muscles of your chest, triceps, and again your abdominals. A strong upper body is important in your daily activities to help you lift things and move about more easily not to mention the great looking body that strong, toned muscles will create!
This Chest, Tricep, and Core Workout is quite challenging and very heavy on pushups so take your time and modify the pushups if needed by doing them from your knees. A thorough warm-up of the shoulder girdle is definitely needed to avoid injury so please make sure you don’t neglect your warm-up.
Hey everyone! Summer is fast approaching and that means less clothing and more of your body showing. Here is a new Home Workout of the Week for you to do that will help you shed some unwanted pounds and tone your legs, shoulders, and abdominals!
This Leg, Shoulder, and Core Workout is part of a split routine and the rest of the workouts to go along with this one will be coming in the weeks ahead. Do this workout at a minimum of once a week along with the other routines and you’ll be well on your way to a fit and toned summer body!
Note: There are a lot of plyometric moves in this routine which means high impact, jumping moves. If you are a beginner or have knee problems then I suggest you do not do any jumping and just do standard moves. For example, in the Cross Body Punch Jump Squat you would just do the punches then squat but not jump.
