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!
See you next week with another new exercise!
