Resistance Training For Women - 2 Core Exercises to Strengthen and Define Your Midsection!
Check out the following 2 exercises that you can do even in the comfort of your own living room! 1.
Half Thrust (Half of a Squat Thrust): This is a very intense and highly efficient drill that is a variation of the squat thrust.
To begin, all you need to do is find some open floor space and get yourself into an upright push-up position.
Make sure your hands and body are in proper alignment.
From here, like a squat thrust, all you do is kick both knees up to your chest with your hands remaining on the ground.
After you drive your knees to your chest then kick and extend your legs back out behind you to return to the upright push-up position.
Keep doing these continuously for the desired amount of repetitions.
You will find this drill both intense and hard-hitting in the stomach and core area.
Squat Walk-Out Planks: You may have heard me talk about the walk-out planks before and this particular exercise is similar with one single difference.
To begin, you want to stand and get into a proper squat position with your thighs parallel to the ground.
From here you want to place your hands on the ground and walk out on your hands until your body is extended into an upright push-up position.
Next, you want to lower into a plank by placing your elbows and forearms on the ground.
Your body should be in a perfect straight line from your shoulders to your heels.
Immediately come back up into an upright push-up position and walk back with your hands until you push yourself up into another perfect squat position with your thighs parallel to the ground.
