10-Minute Killer Core Workout

WORKOUT WEDNESDAY

Have a towel or two laying around!? Put them to use for this fun ab workout! With a towel (or pretty much anything that will glide easily over your floor), begin in plank position for all of the following exercises. Keep your feet firmly pressed into the towel and the floor and rely on your abs to move your legs! Do each exercise for 30 seconds and complete 3 rounds for a 10 minute killer core workout!


Mountain Climbers: Begin in high plank position on your hands, feet on separate towels. Draw your knees into your chest one leg at a time alternating legs while keeping your hips in line with your shoulders.

Knee Tucks: While in high plank, draw both of your knees into your chest at the same time then back out to plank. Don’t let your hips come up, keep them level with your shoulders!

Plank ab/adduction: Begin in an elbow plank with one foot on the ground and one foot on a towel. Slide the foot on the towel out to the side with a straight leg then back in to meet your other foot. Complete 30 seconds on each side.

Leg drags: With both feet on the towel in high plank, use your arms to walk your plank forward dragging your legs behind you! You can even push and walk your plank backwards too! Keep your legs straight and hips in line with your shoulders for correct form!

Knee Tucks to the Side: Target your obliques with this one by starting in high plank. Tuck both knees into your chest at the same time. At the last second twist through your torso to have your knees come to one elbow! Kick back out to a plank and alternate sides.
