During the quarantine, many of us are really missing the gym…especially our boot camp classes! We’re hoping to see you all very soon, but for now we have some more at-home workouts to keep you going until we’re able to open back up! So far we’ve covered arms, glutes and legs! Now we need to focus on our core! Remember, exercising is an amazing way to keep your immune system strong and your body toned! Here are some great options to consider for working out your arms at home with minimal to no equipment!
Planks are such an awesome and versatile workout! Not only are you working our your core, but you’re getting some full-body work in there at the same time! Start out slow and hold it for a few, shorter sets. The stronger you get, the longer you can hold!
This is one of our favorites.
Start in a plank position, with your hands directly below your shoulders. Keep your core TIGHT! Lift your left knee up toward your chest, keeping your back straight and hips down. Remember, your core needs to be engaged! Bring your left leg back to the starting position as you’re simultaneously lifting your right knee toward your chest. Continue this alternating pattern. Start slow and pick up speed as you master the movement.
Now these…are tough! Start in a plank position, nice and low onto your forearms. Keep your elbows on the ground with your hands flat. Lift up your one arm and move it forward, keeping your body nice and steady in a plank position, staying low to the ground. Remember, keep your core engaged! Then, your opposite leg will “drag” behind you as you begin moving your other arm forward. This is what will start to bring you forward into the “crawl.”
Remember, the closing of fitness facilities is only temporary. It’s important to put health and safety first! Check back for updates. We will announce any operating hours via email, social media and our website.
