Oh it is SO going to be a great day.
I am launching BodyPUMP release 82 (you’ll hear my thoughts about this release next week) today with another instructor (Part-AY!), getting in some IM training in the form of running and biking, and I have a blogger potluck in the afternoon and a friends’ party to attend in the evening.
Wow, if those things weren’t super fun, I could be really stressed out. Haha
Today I want to share with you a great move that will rock your core, the Russian Twist.
Focus On: Russian Twist
To work your obliques, you must do a twisting type motion, and this move (Russian Twist) has it all.
- Sit down on your sit-bones and lean slightly back with your hands extended in front of you, and knees bent (feet on the floor).
- Twist from your center, bringing the hands to one side (past the level of the knees).
- Come back to the center and repeat on the other side.
As with all other moves, the Russian Twist can be made even more challenging.
A Russian Twist can be done on a stability ball:
This challenges your core even more than a ‘regular’ Russian Twist as the ball is not a ‘stable’ surface!
And the move can be done in an even more challenging way : with legs off the floor, and holding a weight or medicine ball.
Incorporate a Russian Twist into your next circuit, and your abs and obliques will be burnin’!
HAPPY Birthday to my lovely, oldest sister! She is amazing and just had her 3rd baby (little boy) last month. I love you, Anna!
