Cardio Core Workout

Cardio Core Workout

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I taught three classes on Saturday and four on Sunday, so it was a megaformer-filled couple of days for me. I’ve found that I absolutely love instructing group fitness and am actually contemplating getting spinning certified this coming weekend so I can expand into different types of exercise and studios. I’ll keep you posted if that happens!

Cardio Core Workout

Equipment I Used:

You’ll go through 5 rounds of the following circuit as quickly as you can. Try not to rest; but if you do, take no more than a minute in between rounds.

Cardio Core Workout

  • 20 Reverse Toe Touch to Crunch: Start on your back with feet staight up, perpendicular to the ground, holding a medicine ball in outstretched arms over your head. Bring the ball up towards your toes, crunching your upper back and shoulders off the ground. Lower back down, reaching arms overhead (but not letting the ball come to rest on the ground) and do a reverse crunch, lifting your butt and hips off the ground, pushing feet towards ceiling. Lower back down. That’s one rep.
  • 20 Plank Jump Jacks:Start in a plank position. Jump both feet up towards your hands. Jump them back into plank position. Jump feet apart (like a horizontal jumping jack) and then jump them back together into your starting plank position. That’s one rep.
  • 50 Bicycle Crunches:Lay on back, hands behind head. When you crunch up towards your bent left knee, your right leg should be extended out and not touching the ground. Switch sides, crunching over towards the right with your left leg extended. That’s one rep.
  • 20 Side-to-Side Elbow Plank Hops: Start in a plank position. Jump feet to the left, back to the center, to the right, back to the center. That’s one rep.
  • 60 seconds Jump Rope (two-footed)
  • 60 seconds Jump Rope (high knees)

  1. oooh, I really like the outfit, especially the leggings BUT, my girls are definitely not on the small side so that would just be an impossible top for me to wear. It actually p*sses me off these days- I already have to pay a small fortune for decent sports bras and now it seems they think only smaller chested ladies work out! why cant they make nice things for everyone!!!

    Rant over. 🙂

  2. I actually really like it when a workout tank has support and boost. Great outfit and workout. I’ve never done the side-to-side plank hops before, and those look like a good move to add to my core routine.

  3. Love the puma gear!

  4. I don’t know if you have problems keeping your lower back on the ground when doing movements like the first pictures.. but I do.. I guess that’s what happens when you have a long body.

    • I was ok with this first move because the legs stay up, but I always have that low-back problem when doing leg lifts. Keeping my hands under my bum for that one helps 🙂

    can you PLEASE do a post on some of your favorite summer workout gear? I saw the post on leggings, but with summer coming up (and my recent move, which has left me questioning where I put my workout clothes) I’m in need of some new things!

  6. You look amazing, as always! Can’t wait to try this workout!

  7. The entire outfit is super cute and perfect for summer. I almost always wear black pants/tights, so I like that they are black but still have a bit of color on the sides. The ombre is so pretty. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Hi. Very nice. I. Need. To lose. 40 p. but. I hurt. My back. On my job. And my. Right. Hip in a car accident. I eat. Healthy. 80%
