Weekend Workout – Gotta Keep that Core TIGHT!

Got another core centric superset workout to kickstart your weekend. 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). For those that need a refresher on supersets, they require you to perform a desired number of repetitions for 3 separate exercises in succession. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Why the One-Legged Man is Strong as Hell

Have you ever tried to balance on one leg for 60 seconds? If not, go ahead and try it now, I’ll wait……..

Not that easy right? Single leg exercises are great for enhancing stability and allowing you to build strength independently between legs, which is why the weekend workout below is full of them .

Head to the Tampa Strength YouTube channel (link) if you need further instruction on several of the exercises listed below. I recommend performing the workout in interval format (45 sec work/15 sec rest) for 16-24 minutes. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Gasparilla is a local Tampa tradition that is celebrated by a fictitious pirate invasion and subsequent parade. Parade attendees need to be in peak physical condition in order grab the highly sought after Gasparilla beads that are hurled from elaborate floats. This weekend workout is designed to help those landlubbers grab the most pirate booty.

Even if you’re not joining in on the pirate themed festivities, you can still benefit from completing this bodyweight workout. I recommend performing the workout in interval format (30 sec work/30 sec rest) for 12-20 minutes.

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.
