This is going to be short and sweet because I am writing this while on a break from my shift in the emergency department.
The challenge for this month is along the lines of one of my track and field core workouts that I give my athletes to do! Let’s get those abs working people…
January 2016 core workout
Do 20 reps of the following exercises. Start with 1 set 3 times and work up to 3 sets 3+ times a week!
- Regular crunches
- Straight leg crunches (legs straight up towards the sky, reach up and try to touch your toes)
- V-ups (lay on the ground with arms by your head, bring your arms to your toes by lifting your upper body and legs up at the same time, a.k.a. Make a V)
- Side crunches (right and left)
By doing this once you will do 100 reps of core exercises. If you do 3, that is 300 reps! Core on my friends!
