10-Minute Lagree Fitness Core Workout You Can Do at Home

10-Minute Lagree Fitness Core Workout You Can Do At HomeI recently shot a workout with my girl Sarah for her YouTube channel, Sarah Fit, and wanted to share it here as well for anyone who isn’t a subscriber. I also have a question for you guys below so even if you’ve already seen the video, still scroll down!

10-Minute Lagree Fitness Core Workout You Can Do at Home

You’ll do each of the megaformer-inspired exercises for 60 seconds (just like in a Lagree Fitness class) and there are wrist breaks built in so that you’re not in a plank the entire time. You’ll need a pair of gliders, a dish towel, paper plates, or anything that will slide across the floor.

My favorite part of shooting this workout was getting to sit there talking while Sarah did all the hard work (LOL). Not because I’m lazy–it’s just so much easier to teach and explain exercises when I’m not also focusing on doing them. Sometimes I’ll finish shooting one of my workout videos, watch it back, and immediately think of a million cues and explanations I should have given. I loved being in full-on teacher mode here. 10-Minute Lagree Fitness Core Workout You Can Do At Home

Question for You

Now that I’m starting to get the hang of this whole YouTube thing, I want to make workout videos for older workouts in the archives. I’ll still post a new one each week, but maybe every other Thursday I’ll also republish an old post (#TBT) with a new video to accompany it. This is a great way for new readers to find the best older content they missed, and also an opportunity for long-time readers to try a workout that they might have skipped because it was unclear how to do a move from pictures alone.

So my question for you is: What workout(s) from the archives would you like to see in video form? My kettlebells are still in storage from moving so unfortunately a remake of kb workouts won’t be happening any time soon. Everything else is fair game! Leave a comment below or if you’d rather not, tweet me (@nicoleperr), comment on my latest Instagram (@nicoleperr) or send a carrier pigeon. 😉

If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to me (and Sarah!) on YouTube.

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!

4-Min Plank Tabata Challenge (Day 7): Sliding High Plank Exercises

4-Minute Plank Tabata Challenge (Day 7): Slider ExercisesThe final day hath cometh! Did anyone do all seven of these tabatas? Let me know in the comments which was your favorite/hardest/easiest. I’m excited because I finally invested in a pair of real sliders and I can stop using dish towels. I went with these because they’re double-sided and work on both hardwood and carpet. $16, free shipping with Amazon Prime, done. Totally worth it.

4-Min Plank Tabata: Sliding Exercises

A tabata interval structure is 20 seconds of work + 10 seconds of rest, 8 times. This tabata will be made up of four different plank exercises and you’ll go through them twice. During the 10 seconds of “rest” you can either rest OR hold a plank. If your wrists need a breather, feel free to hold the plank from your forearms.

You’ll need sliders for this workout. Dish towels work well, too, if you have hardwood floors.

4-Minute Plank Tabata Challenge (Day 7): Slider ExercisesBear | Start in a plank position with your feet on a towel. Keeping your hips level with your shoulders, back flat, slide your feet forward, bending your knees in towards your elbows. Slide feet back out, straightening your legs into plank position. Two most common errors while doing this are lifting the booty up as your feet slide in and letting the low back arch down towards the floor. Pull your abs in tight the whole time, maintaining a flat back.

Windshield Wiper Slides | From a high plank position, you’re going to slide (it may require a light hop) both feet up and over to the outside of your right hand. Staying as light on the feet as possible, slide/hop back to center plank. Repeat to the left.

Single-Leg Sliding Mountain Climbers (Isolate One Side)| Start in a high plank with your right foot on a slider and your left leg straight and hovering. Keeping the left leg hovering the entire time, do mountain climbers, driving or sliding one knee into your chest while the other is extended and then alternating. This isn’t just a core challenge, your slider leg will be fired up as well!

You’ll do just the right side the first 20-second interval. Do just the left side the next time you come to the exercise.

Sliding Kickthroughs | From high plank, slide your right foot across your body and over to the left, straightening out your leg and swiveling through the hips. Bring it back to center and repeat with the left.

4-Min Plank Tabata Challenge (Day 6): Forearm Slider Exercises

4-Minute Plank Tabata Challenge (Day 6): Sliding Forearm Plank ExercisesOh man was it overly ambitious of me to think I’d get up two plank challenge posts on the weekend while in Arizona at a wellness retreat (lolzzz nice try, Nicole). I have so much content for you guys from revitalize as well as new full-body workouts and other posts, but first I have to share the last two plank tabatas dammit!!

4-Minute Plank Tabata Workout: Forearm Slider Exercises


A tabata interval structure is 20 seconds of work + 10 seconds of rest, 8 times. This tabata will be made up of four different plank exercises and you’ll go through them twice. During the 10 seconds of “rest” you can either rest OR hold a plank. 

You’ll need sliders for this workout. Dish towels work well, too, if you have hardwood floors. 4-Minute Plank Tabata Challenge (Day 6): Sliding Forearm Plank Exercises

Forearm Plank to Pike | Start in a forearm plank position with your feet on the sliders. Keeping your legs straight and heels lifted, pike your hips up into the air, bringing your body into an upside-down V shape. Slowly lower back down to plank. If you have tight hamstrings, you may not be able to get your hips up very high–that’s ok!

Army Crawl | Put your feet on a towel and get into a plank with your forearms at the end of an exercise mat. Army crawl your way up the length of the mat, one forearm in front of the other, maintaining the plank position as you slide forward. When you can no longer go any farther forward, reverse the motion, crawling your forearms backward towards the starting edge of the mat. As you move, try to keep your hips level in a plank. They’ll want to dip side to side with each step of the forearms; use your core strength to stabilize them.

Beginners: you can do these from your knees, just make sure to add an extra towel for padding.

Low Corkscrew | From a forearm plank, you’re going to bend your knees in towards your right arm, twisting through the waist. Extend back out to plank and then repeat, twisting your knees in towards the left arm. Your hips will be a few inches higher than your shoulders as you bend the knees, but try to get them back to a level height when you extend back out to plank.

Saw Jacks | From forearm plank, start by sliding your feet out wide to the sides and then back to center, keeping your hips level with the shoulders. From here, saw your body back and forth, hinging from the shoulders and maintaining your neutral spine. This part is hard! You may only be able to rock back an inch or two–that’s ok!
