A little hiit cardio and abarooski workout from the other day 👌 .
If you want to die, try doing battle rope intervals for 15-20 seconds. Issssa hard one! I look so pathetic at the end of that video and I thought it was funny so I kept it in😄 Don’t be afraid to try something like I was because you’re afraid of looking funny. I didn’t try the ropes for a while because I thought I would look silly. I still feel like I’m about to fall over haha so don’t sweat it! 😅 go to the gym for yourself because your happiness and your progress is worth it! .
I usually just do some type of plank exercise for abs but @adrianablancfit has been motivating me to do change it up 🙃 .
What kind of workouts do you ladies want to see next? 🧐 I’m dying to know! 👇
I find these challenging only because I can't seem to feel my obliques working at ALL! 🤷♀️ I mean, great break and all, but I kind of need it to be doing something lol.
I don't know if I'm doing it wrong, or if my core is just *that strong* that I need to up my intensity. 💪 .
After several MONTHS of trying various modifications, these few little things seem to work. I was doing these during this week's #liift4 workouts, and I definitely felt them burn! 🔥.
I’ve been obsessed with obliques this week and trying to find different ways to turn ‘em on! Ya’ll...OBLIQUES are basically magical 🧙♀️ we use ‘em bending, twisting, carrying, golfing, playing tennis, balancing, gyrating, getting freaky on the dance floor, idk what you do in your free time but GET YOU SOME OBLIQUE STRENGTH! Do you have low back pain?? Having strong and supple obliques could also significantly reduce low back pain. 🙌🏼👌🏼 It’s a piece of the puzzle but certainly an important one. These were hard but FUN and I can’t wait to teach em in class! 😇#TriCoreFit @tricorefit
Core Core Core🙌🏽
New move today from our program and it is EPIC!! -
Try it out: using a light weight, crunch up and move the weight side to side but try to keep it at the same level near your knees.. so don’t let your shoulders touch the mat! Do this for 30 seconds, break for 15 seconds and repeat 3 times💪🏽
Obliques are as important as our core muscles in order to get fitter and stronger overall. Here I’ve got a few nice oblique exercises which you can do at home on your own adding another challenge to your body!

This a core oblique abs workout today. You want to start in a plank position and plant your toes against the wall. Tighten up your abs and lift your one leg up and down slowly. You want to feel the burn. To intensify your workout, put a twist into it. Challenge yourself
It's Workout Wednesday, where I bring you an at-home exercise challenge each week!*************************************
This is the last mountain video you’ll get (I miss that beautiful blue sky ⛰), and it’s an arm and ab burner that I know you’ll enjoy!
1️⃣ Lateral plank walks: from a plank position, step arms and legs to each side. 2 “steps” right and 2 “steps” left is one rep.
2️⃣ Dolphin 🐬 push-ups: from an elbow plank, push hips back into downward dog position, stretching chest towards ground, then return to plank.
3️⃣ Oblique crunch tucks: from a side plank on your elbow, with top hand behind your head, bend top elbow downwards, and imagine tucking it beneath your bottom ribs.
4️⃣ Oblique plank kicks: from a side plank on your hand, kick top toe to touch top hand, and go back to plank.
5️⃣ In and outs: from a seated position with hands on the ground behind butt, straighten legs and keep heels lifted, leaning torso backwards a few inches. Tuck knees into chest, keeping heels off ground, to complete a rep. ****************************************
➡️➡️➡️➡️Your challenge!!! Do 20 of each exercise (including 20 on each side when applicable). Then do 10 on each side. Then do 5 on each side!
Happy Workout Wednesday!

Today was another tough one.
So yesterday I was still tired, Today I was really sore !
How to fight the “I wanna be lazy” attitude.... Just get up & do it (well that’s what works for me) & thinking about what a crappy day I’ll have if I don’t work out. Also if you think you’ll be more tired afterwards, you won’t, you’ll have more energy then you started with.
Today I did Biceps & Triceps, aiming to hit 400 reps on both.
10 reps each set for 10 sets with 4 different exercises (for each muscle group) I started with biceps then before starting triceps I did KB oblique Matches 4 rds 10reps ea side, then went to triceps, & finished of with 15 mins on the stairs & 5 mins on the lateral machine.
I can honestly say 1 really under estimated those marches I’m already sore.
2. The swell & burn in my arms were serious lol & my arms felt way bigger than they look in the pics lol
Low to high woodchop. Even the super-uncoordinated (me!) get a wicked workout from this exercise. Targets abs and obliques but an overall full body exercise. Use a medicine ball, dumbbell ... or a jug of laundry detergent (awesome exercise while waiting for laundry!) .
Fueled with 1/2 scoop of tart 🍒 ALLMAX Impact Igniter
Try this functional core workout : STRAIGHT LEGS CHIN-UPS 🔥
5 sets of max out reps
In my teens and even early 20s’ I used to literally annihilate my abs for 30-40 min every day ! I was really obsessed about training them. I was convinced that that’s the only way to keep them shredded. Now that I’m more experienced I understand that it’s absolutely not needed in order to have strong and defined midsection ! All you need is 2-3 times per week of 8-12 of very focused and efficient direct abs training and mainly focus on your eating habits and overall lifestyle! Remember once and forever: spot fat reduction is not possible! It’s overall low body fat % what matters 😌
In my opinion It’s important to train them before the main training routine (right after the dynamic warmup) as opposed to in the end of a session, Why ? - 2 reasons:
• first is because it’s a great warmup for nervous system , and increased blood flow throughout the entire body ! It gets you ready for heavy lifting session 👌🏼
• second reason is that in the beginning you have more energy and most likely you will put in great effort into training them. You know that typical scenario when you plan to do abs in the end and in the end you so exhausted that you just say: fu..k it , next time lol 😝 • and for me personally it’s a mental thing, i like to do something that I don’t enjoy so much right in the beginning and than happily go to main workout routine!
Don’t neglect direct abs training, just couple times a week before a session or on a active rest day , for example with cardio 🔥🙌🏼
Just pick 1-2 different movements and do them with perfect form , focusing on proper breathing and eliminating momentum 👌🏼

#megamovemonday 💪🏻🔥 Taught this oblique combo this past week which was super hard and challenging, but we all know that’s how I roll 😉 Reverse Side Crunch Bear ➡️Reverse Platform Teaser. Being in the reverse position you are slowly resisting the carriage in and keeping constant tension on the springs. Ankle bones together, heels high, squeezing the inner thighs, dominant oblique facing down towards the floor. The key here is to lift the hips just an inch or two as you softly bend the knees right underneath your hips. Pressing into the palms of your hands and rotating the shoulders down & back will help create a more stable base for you to hold this funky position. As you can see going from #1 in to #2 the range of motion becomes even smaller!! Coming from the balls of your feet to the sides of your feet decreases the ROM, knees stay straight so the focus is to pike the hips up towards the ceiling working in the SLOW 4 counts up & 4 counts down. Keep the inner thighs together and keep the hips twisted as you are pressing into the palms, rotating the shoulders and thinking of squeezing your elbows in towards your sides. HOLY 🔥🔥🔥 #obliqueworkout#obliques#lagreefitness#megaformer#instructor#sweatsesh#joblove#sltnyc#fitness#reversesidecrunchbear#reverseplatformteaser
