Who doesn’t want nice arms and abs?? Todays video has 3 fantastic arm exercises that happen to also target your core. Can it get any better than that? Yes! We made it better by adding a cardio blast to really help burn fat. Everyone has a six pack waiting to be revealed, right? Cardio (and nutrition) tend to the best weapons at combatting that thin (or maybe not so thin) layer that’s holding your six-pack hostage. However, in order to be and look fit (not just skinny) you must challenge your beautiful muscles. This workout may look easy enough, but I promise you will be feeling the burn before the first set is over.
High Knees: Jog in place lifting your knees as high as possible each time. No slacking!
Staggered Pushup: One hand should be placed in line with your shoulder and the other lower along the ribs. When you lower your body, the elbow should stay close to the ribs while the other one stays wide. Switch hand position after each one. Keep your core tight and think about leading with the chest on the way down.
Full Contact Pushup with Stabilizer: Lower your body all the way to the floor so you have full contact with it. Push yourself up making sure your core is SUPER tight. Lower down leading with the chest, but push up leading with the butt. You have to use your core for this one. When your arms are fully extended rotate you hips and reach one of them toward the ceiling. Return to starting position and repeat.
I/T Plank: In a straight arm plank (with your feet slightly apart) raise one arm overhead with your thumb turned up. Lower toward the floor and then raise it out in line with your shoulder, thumb still turned up.
