This is a quick 8 minute core workout. Complete as many rounds of these moves as possible in 8 minutes. For each move, focus of keeping your core tight. Keep a steady pace, so that you utilize your core muscles as much as possible and burn more calories. Keeping tension on the muscle for longer periods of time, helps to gain lean muscle and definition – so rest only if needed.
Set a timer for 8 minutes and complete the following as many times as possible:
Windmill (right) – 10 reps
Windmill (left) – 10 reps
Scissor Crunch – 10 reps/side
Crab March – 10 reps/side
|Scissor Crunch||Lay on your back with legs straight. Scissor your legs by lowering one to just above the ground and the other toward your chest and crunch up, reaching your arms to each side of your leg. Lower your back down as you switch legs and repeat, keeping legs and shoulders lifted throughout.|
|Crab March||Get into reverse tabletop with your hands under your shoulders and back straight (facing to ceiling). Keeping your knees bent, lift your left knee toward your chest and tap it with your right hand. Lower and repeat lifting the right knee and tapping it with the left hand. Continue alternating sides, keeping your hips lifted.|
