I’ve decided to share some fun and easy workouts with you guys every now and then. I have a really fun couples workout which I’m doing with Saif at the gym this week–I’ll take some photos and share that with you as well. There’s nothing more fun than working out with your partner–whether its a friend or your girl/boyfriend. Sort of like back in the day, playing together instead of frickin adult-meeting for coffees and cocktails all the time…
This a core-workout that’s super easy to do at home. My trainer Susovan shared it with me after I had asked him for something I could do every day at home, without equipment and something that wouldn’t take more than 10 minutes of my time.
Here it goes, from me to you:
[Complete the entire circuit once and then repeat again with a 30 second break in between. If you need clarification on any of the movements, go ahead and google it]
20 crossed leg crunches (Side note for this movement–keep ankles crossed in the air and do crunches by lifting shoulders off the floor/mat and going up towards ceiling. DO NOT take your head towards your knees. Take it towards the ceiling. Great for upper abs!)
30 sec/45 sec/1 minute plank on forearms (a tip is to start with 30 seconds and have a goal to increase the length of your plank over time)
10 leg raises
30 seconds hollow body hold
10 side V-ups on each side
Repeat circuit one more time.
Wrap up by stretching out your abs by doing the yoga cobra stretch. The awesome thing about this is that you can do it every day at home. I suggest you use a yoga mat or a folded blanket to protect your butt and lower back and avoid getting a scabbed-out tailbone…
