Happy WorkOut Wednesday Everyone!
Remember when ‘Planking’ was the ‘in’ thing all the cool kids were doing? Snapping pics of themselves ‘planking’ in odd locations and sharing it with their friends…well news flash, ‘Planking’ is still in, however not in the way it was made famous for!
This WorkOut Wednesday is all about the power of the ‘plank’ position. Holding the plank position for 30-60 seconds in between spurts of cardio or after a run helps tighten your core, stabilize your muscles and of course help feel the burn in those abs!
Want to do a spicier version of the traditional plank? To tackle your obliques, do a side plank like pictured below. If you can raise your arm up with weights even better, if not, stick to the basic!

There’s always that one song that comes on your playlist inspiring outrageous singing, crazy dance moves or in my case, the motivation to go work out. Britney Spear’s single ‘Work B*tch’ does just that….take the lyrics “Want a hot body? You better work b*tch”…enough said!
This segment of ‘WorkOut Wednesday‘ is all about ‘working’ it and what better way to work yourself out in the gym with some killer cardio. They key to not only loosing weight, but also toning up is to mix cardio in with intervals of weight training.
For example, do 20 pushups followed by 30 seconds of jumping jacks, then back to pushups…so on and so forth. Mix up the cardio you do with jumping jacks, high knees, mountain climbers, squat jacks, burpees…whatever works best for you as long as you keep your heart rate up and the sweat dripping!
Happy WorkOut Wednesday!
