I am so happy it is Friday!! My weeks usually fly but this week was going in slow-mo… so I am extra happy that we are finally here.
Today is a rest day for me. I got in some fabulous workouts this week, but my body is telling me to lay off the squats, pushups, and anything involving weights!
I wanted to share with you my favorite new exercise of the week!! We practiced Plank Punches this week in Boot Camp and I loved it. I am a huge fan of planks because they help to build a strong core. Having a strong core is the foundation for everything you do with fitness!
For this variation of the Plank you start in a Pushup Position on your hands and toes.
(Little miss Ava snuck in this picture! She can’t sit still)
Keep your body straight as a board. Lift up one arm and punch directly in front of you.
Return to your plank position and switch sides.
You can add this exercise into any workout! Try starting with 3 sets of 30 seconds! Remember to keep your core tight and your hips pointing towards the floor, so we get the most out of this exercise!
I am super happy to have no plans on my schedule this weekend. We are going with the “go with the flow” attitude and see what the weekend brings!!
Have you learned any new exercises? If so, please share!
Are you a Planker?
Do you have any fun plans this weekend?
