April 10, 2015 2 min read

Looking for some sexy yoga abs? Strengthen your core with these 4 yoga moves (while also toning up the rest of your body):   1. Plank

  • Start on all fours with arms straight, wrists directly under your shoulders, palms flat (though if you find you're putting too much pressure on your wrists, you can curl your fingertips to distribute the weight).
  • Step both feet back to straighten your legs, keeping your feet hip distance apart, toes curled under.
  • Maintain a straight line from the crown of your head through to your heels by engaging your core and quads.
  • Focus on a point just slightly above, and between, your fingertips.
  • Hold for 5 to 10 controlled breaths (for example, 4 count inhale, 4 count exhale).
Rest in child's pose. Repeat 3 more times.   2. Side plank

  • Start in plank pose.
  • Begin shifting your weight onto your right side as your roll onto the outer edge of your right foot.
  • Stack your left foot on top of your right foot and press your right hand into the ground to keep a separation between your ear and shoulder.
  • Stack your left shoulder over your right, stack your hips and engage your core, lifting your hips to create a straight line with your body.
  • You can place your left hand on your hip, or extend it upward.
  • Hold for 5 to 10 controlled breaths.
Return to plank pose and repeat on your left side. Rest in child's pose. Repeat each side 3 more times.   3. Boat summerperezfullboat   summerperezhalfboat  
  • Sit on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.
  • Lean back and, with your knees together, lift your feet off the floor to create a V with your body while extending your arms parallel to the floor. (Take the half-boat pose with knees slightly bent, if needed.)
  • Balance on your tailbone, lifting your chest and maintaining a steady gaze straight ahead.
  • Hold for 5 to 10 controlled breaths.
Rest in corpse pose. Repeat 4 more times.   4. Knee-to-nose

  • Start in downward facing dog.
  • Inhale and lift your right leg straight into the air behind you.
  • Then bring your right knee towards your nose as you exhale, rounding your back as you press your hands towards the ground.
  • Hold for a count.
  • Inhale to lift your leg back behind you once again, and exhale to bring it back towards your nose.
After 10-15 repetitions, switch sides. Repeat 3 more times on each side.   If you find this to be too easy, feel free to add more sets or hold for extended counts.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
