I hit the floor today for some core exercises and while not all of my work is featured here, it was a luscious 30-minute burn!
Glute Kick-backs with resistance band
I kept my spine neutral as I performed some bent-leg glute kickbacks, engaging my core and flexing my feet.
Straight-Leg Glute lift and fire hydrant raise with resistance band
Using the resistance band on the fire hydrant raise was exceptionally wonderful, targetting my oblique muscles. Moving slowly through the motion brought some extra burn!
Cross-Body bar lift sit-up
The 20lb bodybar added a challenging dynamic as I sat all the way up and pushed the bar across my body.
Bridge with pilates ring thigh squeeze
My entire carriage was electric as I pressed up into bridge and squeezed the pilates ring.
Double Leg drop with reach-through
Squeezing the pilates ring while doing the double leg drop for the lower abdominals was a fantastic sensation, but the reach through the ring was what really drove this exercise home!
Side-lying double leg lift with knees to chest
I used the pilates ring for extra resistance as I squeezed it while lifting my legs in a side lying position and then driving my knees toward my chest.
Double leg drop with pilates ring squeeze
Adding those squeezes in the extended position of the leg drop was dynamic and tough!
