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.

Let us know in the comment section below if you completed this or any weekend workout. ENJOY!

Weekend Workout – Push Yourself

Regular readers of the blog will know that I’m a big fan of compound exercises (multi-joint movements that require the use of various muscle groups) because they give you more “bang for your buck” when it comes to working out. One compound exercise in particular, the push-up, requires you to utilize muscle groups in your upper body, core and lower body which is why this weekend workout is full of them.

The bodyweight workout below 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 90 seconds of rest for four circuits. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.
