This video will provide you with a full body core workout that will target your abdominal muscles, back, shoulders, chest and add/abductor muscles. All of these muscles play a key role in how you perform as an athlete so I like to train them as much as I can and that is at minimum 1-2 times per day. The good thing about these exercises is that you don't need weights or a gym, you can do them anywhere and you don't even have to do them for that long. The key is to stay consistent and do these movements often so I suggest to all of my clients to get them in throughout the day either when they wake up, at lunch break or even before you go to bed. I like to do these movements for 30-45 seconds on and 10-20 seconds off back to back so that I can get a good challenge and believe me you will be sweating after round one of these movements. One last thing you can do to bump up the intensity is to add ankle weights for the leg movements that involve the adductor and abductor muscles. Adding a little weighted resistance will increase the workload causing your muscles to work harder and in return gains in strength and even flexibility and mobility.
- Complete each exercise for 30-45 seconds
- 20 second breather
- 3-4 rounds
