If you've been planking, crunching and tucking 'til you can't inhale without pain but still don't havethe core gains you want, it's time to try a different tact. While all those exercises are great for your core, they focus a lot on your anterior core muscles: your recti abdominis and hip flexors, specifically. They do draw on other anterior and side core muscles, but they don't hit them the way that this exercise can. We're talking about the Hip Thrust & Twist!

This killer core move targets combines pushing, twisting and squeezing to give you an insanely well-rounded core workout that will tighten and tone your waistline. Since it really targets your glutes, you'll enjoy the fat burning benefits of buildinglean muscle mass in your body's biggest muscle, and since it really hones in on your transverse abdominus (the muscle that sits like a girdle around either side of your waist), you're tightening up your midsection  — which incidentally makes this move amazing for people who havediastasis recti.

Other muscles worked with this move include your hamstrings, obliques and  — since we're loading up witha sandbag  — your arms and shoulders.

Try it out and feel the burn for yourself. Remember: that sweet, sweet heat means it's working!

Tips on form:

  • Keep your glutes engaged.
  • Keep hips in a straight line.
  • Keep weight in your heels.
  • Twist over as far as you can while keeping hips parallel with the floor.
  • Keep the sandbag (or whatever weight you're using) at your lower chest: this will keep the majority of work in your core!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. 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 2-3 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. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

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.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
