Strengthen Your Core And Glutes With This 2 Circuit Burnout
The circuits below are designed to strengthen your entire body, specifically your glutes and core. It is vital that you use your mind to properly engage and contract the muscles you are working, especially your core and glutes. To successfully work a muscle group, you have to feel it working. You need to focus your mind on contracting and squeezing the muscle with every single rep.
This workout isn’t about speed. Some moves, like plank knee-to-elbows and push-ups, are all about using your body weight to provide enough resistance that each rep feels challenging—no matter what. In other moves, like supermans and good mornings, there isn’t as much built-in resistance, because of the way you’re positioned and how you’re moving.
Do each move below for 30 seconds. After each circuit, rest for 45 seconds. Complete both circuits 2-5 times total.
From a high plank position, engage your core and draw your right knee to the outside of your right elbow, sweeping it to the side of your torso, not beneath.
Keep your arms straight and shoulders over your wrists.
Return to the high plank position and repeat on the other side.
