Monday’s 5 Min Workout
This week’s 5 min workouts are all about VARIATION! Using one exercise a day we will come up with a few different variations of that workout to accomplish a goal, whether it be to strengthen our core, firm up our gluts, or give us a rock hard chest.
Monday’s 5 min Workout involves the Plank. Getting into a plank position you are going to perform the following variations for 1 min (30 secs each side). For example the first variation is Plank w/ a leg raise. While in the plank position you would raise your left leg and hold for 30 secs, then raise your right leg and hold for 30 secs.
Variation #1 - Plank w/ a leg raise
Variation #2 - Plank w/ one arm raise (stretch your arm out in front of you while keeping the other arm bent and in plank position)
Variation #3 - Plank w/ Jacks (while in your plank position doing jumping jacks with your feet - spreading them out then back in) You will do this one for 1 min.
Variation #4 - Plank w/ lateral knee raise (while supporting on one leg, swing your knee out and try to touch your elbow with your knee) **Yes this does require a little flexibility :)
Variation #5 - Plank (hold for 1 min
Great way to strengthen your core before you start your Monday! Happy Monday everyone!
