Obliques and Legs

This demanding routine will target areas that are often missed with the obliques. You can use this with any warm-up where you’ll be using weights. Great for creating stability through the core without risk with flexing.  Take your time with this one and always do your best!

3 rounds of:
•30-sec side plank R
•30-sec side plank L
•30-sec chair squats

Key Points

Side planks:  Place the elbow directly under the shoulder with your head and chest facing forward.  Focus on stabilizing the bottom shoulder and squeezing the glute closest to the ground.  Try not to sag the hips and maintain a straight line in the body.

Chair Squats:  Place the feet just wider than the hips with the toes slightly pointed out.  Keep the knees aligned with your second toe as you send your hips back and dropdown.  Keep your chest up and your spine straight. Think of screw your feet in the ground to create stability in your hips.  Slight touch the chair and then come back up with control.
