Cozy Socks Core Workout
If you have taken a megaformer class you might recognize the names, the moves and you are a master on it, but if you haven't, this are a few moves we do at Btone! I wanted to give you a quick workout you can do from home when is freezing and snowy outside and you can't make it to a class.
This moves are my favorite in class and I add them when at the gym using sliders, and when I am home I just wear my cozy socks to make the slide easier.
It looks easy, but trust me, it is a killer! It takes 16 minutes, and you can do it while watching Netflix, listening to a podcast or just at the end of your regular routine.
Cozy Socks Workout
What do you need?
A pair of socks, sliders or a towel.
Stay in each exercise for a minute, and repeat four time the whole circuit. You can take a 30 second rest in between to give a break to your wrists.
Bear: Start on a high plank position. Shoulders over wrists, keep your fingers spread. Tuck your tummy and make sure your back is 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.
Twisted Bear Left & Right Side: Slide your feet out to plank and from that position, bring your left knee across your body to your right elbow—really pull it forward, trying to make contact. Hold it there for about 10 seconds then go back to plank position. Switch sides once the minute is up.
Plank to Pike: Keeping your legs straight, pike your hips up into the air, bringing your body into an upside down “v” shape. Try to keep your heels lifted as you do this, sliding on the balls of your feet. Once you hit your peak (if you have tight hamstrings, you may not be able to get your hips up very high—that’s ok!), slowly lower back down into plank position. If your wrists bother you, you can do this from your forearms.
I am in love with this set of top and leggins. One of the founders and owner, is a Btone instructor! Honestly, it is very well thought activewear brand, the details are beautiful and it is super comfy. You can't see anything when you squat, and has a panty integrated! (I know, it is weird, but so helpful!). Check them out and fall in love with it too ;)
If you do this workout, let me know! I'd love to know what you think!
