Weekend Workout – Yooooouuuu, Your Core Will Be On FIRE

I’m bringing you another core centric superset workout this week. For those that need a refresher on supersets, they require you to perform a desired number of repetitions for 3 separate exercises in succession. As if core exercises weren’t challenging enough, these exercises will all be executed from the plank position. That means you’ll need to utilize much more than core muscles to complete the workout.

Performing five 10 rep supersets of this workout will help improve strength in your ENTIRE core, not just your 6-pack (rectus abdominis). Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – You have to get up to get down

Standing, kneeling, tabletop and supine. Those are the positions you’ll be in during this weekend workout. Changing the position of an exercise can increase or decrease the number of muscle groups necessary to complete one rep correctly.

This bodyweight workout will start you off jumping and end with you laying flat on your back, hopefully after you complete the recommended four to six circuits of 30 sec work/30 sec rest. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – If one is good, two has to be better

This weekend workout is packed with “2-4-1” exercises. That means you get the benefit of 8 exercises instead of 4. As you can see many of these exercises are compound exercises, which means they are multi-joint movements that require the use of various muscle groups.

Between the squat, push-up and lunge, you’ll be working essentially every muscle group in your body with this workout. I recommend performing 10 reps of exercise followed by at least 30 seconds of rest for three to five circuits. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Push It, Push It Real Good

Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that require the use of various muscle groups. That means performing a workout filled with compound exercises will give you more “bang for your buck” which is why I decided to fill this weekend workout with one of the best compound exercises around: the push-up.

This bodyweight workout includes a variety of push-up variations that will strengthen numerous muscle groups in your body.  I recommend performing 10 reps of each push-up variation followed by at least 30 seconds of rest for three to five circuits. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – This Workout Focuses on Your Core Concern

Several potential benefits of core training according to Men’s Fitness include: improved sports performance, reduction in lower-back pain, better posture, development of stronger breathing muscles and a slimmer waistline (source). Plus, you’ll absorb more beneficial Vitamin D during those times showing off your core muscles at the beach, or supermarket. Wherever you prefer.

You’re gonna want a workout mat to perform the core exercises in this weekend workout. I recommend performing five 10 rep supersets of these exercises with at least 60 seconds of rest in between sets. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.
