Star Core Workout
Working out your core can be the worst workout ever; crunch after crunch after crunch! I have come up with some moves that will strengthen your core and reminded me of stars; fun right?! Remember that core strength is not just your abs. Your core references all your muscles connected to your spine. So, I included some arm and leg moves too! I think you’ll really like it if you give it a try.equipment needed:
- resistance tube
Squat down and as you stand; explode yourself up; jump into the air and spread your arms and legs away from you; as you land bring your legs together and repeat. For lower impact do not jump but bring your limbs out like a star. Start with 5!
Using a resistance tube stand with your left foot on the tube giving plenty of tube for you to work with; place the handle in your right hand; reach your right hand down toward your left hip; pull up and across your body reaching overhead. Do 10 and switch sides!
On the floor or mat, get down on your hands and knees; lift your right leg straight up; you will make a star shape move with your leg; start down from right to left then lift up to the right over to the left and down to the right to repeat. Do 5 in one direction then switch directions! THEN, switch legs! A total of 10 reps for each leg.
Lay on your back with legs out straight and apart; bring your arms overhead and outstretched like your making a star or snow angel! Crunch up and bring your right arm and left leg up and to the center; return to your outstretched position; crunch up with the opposite arm and leg; repeat to 10 reps.
Star abs with pike
From the outstretched position (like your snow angel position) lift your arms and legs into the piked position. (like boat pose in yoga; balance on your butt bone) Hold yourself in the piked position for a count of 3; return yourself to the star position; 10 reps!
be fit, have fun
