New year, new abs. Bring the fire to your midsection in this 10 minute workout. Won’t you join me in the January 19 Core Challenge?
Happy 2019! A new year full of possibilities, goals and achievements! Last year was all about adjusting to our new family dynamic of only one full time working parent. This year is all about growth- and my list is ambitious! Jumping right in and kicking the year off with no excuses.
In October I posted a monthly core challenge and I want to bring that series into 2019! Your abs are more than just situps- it’s working the muscles all around the core. Adapting from some of my favorite CXWorx moves this month we are going to light the core on fire!
When doing these moves I want you to really focus on drawing the belly button into the spine to support your lower back. It’s not going to be easy but it’s going to be totally worth it!
Every day we are going to complete TWO rounds of FIVE exercises for FORTY FIVE seconds, followed by FIFTEEN seconds of rest. I want you to join me in the #sisCoreChallenge- so if 7 days a week is unrealistic for you, try to give me 4-5 days a week. You’ll see results if you put in the time. It’s just 10 minutes a day. I know it is winter, but remember that summer body starts in the winter.
