#SnowDayChallenge: Core Challenge

Get your core tight while the snow is deep outside. With this 6-exercise workout, you'll push your core to its limits!

What you'll need:

  • A Yoga mat
  • A 1-minute countdown timer

How to do it:

  • Devote 60 seconds to each exercise
  • Rest 30 seconds between each exercise
Ready? Here we go!  

Plank Hold

Get in plank position - either on your hands or on your elbows. Simply hold yourself in place, counting off 60 seconds. Keep that stomach tight, and make sure your back and butt are level.

Side Plank with Reach

You'll do this one twice - once for each side. Assume the plank position, shift your weight onto your right hand, and reach your left up high. Hold for 60, rest for 30 seconds, and switch to the left hand.

Supermans

Get on your stomach, with your arms and legs extended. When the timer starts, use your back to lift your shoulders and knees off the ground. You only need to lift a few inches, but your back will groan in no time.

Reach Ups

This modified crunch is great for your stomach. Straighten your legs, and reach your hands up towards them as you crunch upwards.

Russian Twist

Great for both sides and stomach! Sit with your knees tucked into your stomach. Lift your feet off the floor, and twist from side to side to touch the floor with both hands.

Bridge

Get ready for 60 seconds of holding. Lie on your back, with your knees bent and feet on the floor. Lift your pelvis off the floor until only your feet and upper shoulders are touching, and clasp your hands beneath your butt.   Feel the burn in your core!
