Week #9 of the BSSC weekly workout series is an Upper Body Burn from our friend & personal trainer Tiffany! Improve your upper body and core strength with this workout! Complete these exercises as a circuit with minimal rest between exercises. Rest for a full minute between rounds and complete 4 rounds total.
Begin in a high plank position with your hands about two inches wider than your shoulders. Bend your elbows to at least a 90 degree angle and push through the palms of the hands to return to the starting position. To modify, elevate your arms on a chair or complete the push ups on your knees. Complete 10-15 reps.
Begin lying on your stomach with your arms and legs fully extended. Raise your arms, legs, and chest up off of the ground. If you experience any lower back pain, keep your legs on the ground. Complete 15-20 reps.
Elevate your arms on a bench or chair. Begin with your elbows extended and your torso perpendicular to the ground. To make this exercise easier, bend your knees. To make it more challenging, fully straighten your legs. Bend your elbows 90 degrees and use your triceps to return to the starting position. Perform 10-15 reps.
PLANKS TO SHOULDER TAPS
Begin in a high plank position with your arms directly below your shoulders and abs engaged. Raise one arm and tap your opposite shoulder. Repeat on the other side. Complete 10-15 repetitions per side. (20-30 total.)
