Fitness challenge ~ abs, arms and legs

Becoming fit is a lifestyle change. Don't look for immediate results, be persistent and consistent. Your body is a work in progress!


Low burpees

Squat with your feet hips-width apart, arms extended in front of you. Place hands on the floor and quickly walk feet back into a full plank position. Immediately lower into a pushup. Press up, walk feet back into squat. Repeat.

 

The hydrant with hip circles

Get on your hands and knees with elbows straight, hands on the floor directly below your shoulders and knees. Lift one knee off the floor and up to the side. Keep your knee bent. Make sure all movement is taking place at the hip joint, as if you're drawing a circle with your kneecap in the air. Repeat and switch legs.

 

Bridge

Lie flat on your back with the hands by your side and your knees bent. Your feet should be placed around shoulder width. Exhale and push with your heels, lift your hips off the floor and keep your back straight. Slowly go back to the starting position as you breathe in.

 

Seesaw plank

Get into a plank position, with your forearms on the ground, elbows directly under your shoulders, and legs extended straight behind you. Your feet should be hip-width apart. Your body should form a straight line from shoulders to ankles. Engage your core. Push off the balls of your feet and push yourself forward and back.

 

Crab walk

Sit with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Position your hands palms down on each side of your butt. Push your hands and feet into the floor and raise your torso and thighs a few inches so your butt is hovering above the ground. Take a step forward, moving your right hand and left foot. Repeat with your left hand and right foot. Change direction.
