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.

Weekend Workout – Make Sure You Warm-up Before You Warm-up

Dynamic warm-up movements can increase body temperature, activate your nervous system and increase range of motion all while getting your body in optimal condition to workout. They can also be combined with a pair of speed drills to produce a cardio & strength building workout.

I recommend performing the dynamic warm-up & speed exercises below in a three to five set interval workout. You still have to warm-up and modify this workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Stiff as a Board to Move Light as a Feather

I mentioned it in a previous weekend workout post, but I think it bears repeating: having 6-pack abs doesn’t mean you have a strong core. Your rectus abdominis muscles make up your 6-pack, but to improve overall core strength you need to perform exercises that strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, obliques, transversus abdominis, erector spinae and more.

One such exercise that strengthens all these areas is the plank. I recommend performing the plank variation workout below in interval format (30 sec work/30 sec rest) for 15-25 minutes. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Train Like A Fighter Without Getting Hit

Combat sports, particularly boxing, have been in the news A LOT lately, which is why I felt it be appropriate to share a weekend workout that features a few boxing & kickboxing techniques.

Head to the ETT YouTube channel (link) if you need further instruction on the punches and/or front kicks. I recommend performing the workout in interval format (30 sec work/30 sec rest) for 12-20 minutes. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Jump Around to a Fitter You

This weekend workout will definitely have you feeling a little froggy. Incorporating jumping exercises into your workout routine can help you build lower body strength, balance and agility. They’re also a great way to quickly elevate your heart rate, which can lead to improved cardio capacity over time.

I recommend performing four to six sets of these jumping exercises. It’s especially important that you warmup and modify this workout to match your fitness level. Also, if you have a significant lower body injury (e.g. ligament strains or tears) you should click here for one of our past core centric weekend workouts.

Weekend Workout – A Stronger Core Means A Stronger You

Have you tried incorporating supersets into your workouts yet? For those that need a refresher on supersets, they require you to perform a desired number of repetitions for 3 separate exercises in succession. These workout sets allow you to up the intensity of your workout in a shorter period of time.

This weekend workout includes a core centric superset 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 – These Exercises We’ll Have You Looking Dynamite!

Dynamic exercises, also known as plyometrics, can really jump-start any workout. Plyometric exercises can get your heart rate up & increase your maximum force production, but did you know there are also dynamic mobility exercises.

Dynamic stretching movements can help promote blood flow and enhance joint and muscle range of motion. Which is why I incorporated two dynamic mobility exercises with two dynamic plyometric exercises for an explosive weekend workout.

Make sure you warmup and modify the exercises & intervals to match your fitness level. Let us know in the comment section if you completed this or any workout. Enjoy!
