Welcome to day 4 of the ab challenge!  Today, we will combine 2 moves in 4 rounds to work the core while focusing on ab stability and obliques.

4 Rounds:

  • 10 push-up to side plank (hold side plank x 10 seconds)
  • 20 Russian twists

Push-up to side plank: Begin in plank position with wrists and elbows stacked under shoulders. Lower body to the floor, keeping abs engaged. Press back up while reaching alternate arm to the sky and turn body to hold side plank.

Russian Twists: sit on the ground with knees bent and heels about one foot from sit bones. Lift heels off the floor and lean slightly back to engage abdominals. Aim to keep spine straight without rounding. Holding hands in front of ribs, rotate upper body left to right.
