At Home Core Workout

Ok, so the pressure is actually on right now to get into the best shape ever. This week Erika and I booked Coachella (eeeeek!!!!!), and while I have never been as broke as I am right now, I have never been so excited! I am literally stalking Pinterest daily for outfit ideas. We fly into LA on the Thursday morning and don’t return to New York until the following Tuesday morning, so we’re planning to see as much of Venice Beach as possible on the Monday after Coachella! I am giddy with excitement!

So this means that I am motivated beyond belief to focus on my fitness in the coming months. I’ve been working away in The PE Club over the past few weeks, and my trainer Miriam is the absolute dream to work with. We decided to share an easy core workout that can be done at home without any equipment. Last time we shared this bum workout, it was really well received, but you don’t even need a gym for this one so it’s really handy. I’m going to try do this daily, increasing the amount reps I do each day to make it harder as my core (hopefully) gets stronger.

Do not be deceived with this one, it is much harder than it looks or sounds! If your back hurts at any point then stop straight away – I am clearly in no way qualified to hand out fitness advice, but this is just a workout that I like!

Ok so this is the little core circuit – try and complete it 3 times… without any breaks in between.

#1: Plank Side Dips

Hold your plank {position 1} and dip your hips from left {position 2} to right {position 3}. Keep your core tight and do the motion slowly to really feel the burn. Repeat 10 times.

#2: Straight Arm Plank to Forearm Plank

Get into {position 1}, and while keeping your core tight, lower yourself down {position 2} into a forearm plank {position 3} one arm at a time, and then back up again into {position 1}. Alternate the arm that leads, and repeat 10 times.

#3: Straight Arm Plank Jumps

Ok, so get into a straight arm plank {position 1} and then quickly jump your legs out from {position 1} to {position 2} and then back in again. Repeat 10-12 times.

If you try it, or want to see more of this kind of post, please let me know – all opinions are welcome!
