My Floor Work

Hi,

Somebody asked what floor work I do and where. Firstly I was so excited to be asked a question about what I do! Thank you!

I do it at home, with just a yoga mat as equipment. My cat does like to 'help' and I am sure the giggles work out my stomach muscles a little :P

The work out started with core strengthening my physio prescribed, then I added the situp and pushup challenges and a couple of extra core exercises (which I don't know the name of!)

What I do is (I try to increase the reps each session):
  • pelvic tilts
  • lying leg lifts (core engaged)
  • prone leg lifts (core engaged)
  • 5 x 30 sec planks
  • 5 x 30 second side planks (each side)
  • bridges
  • 200 sit up challenge (see http://www.twohundredsitups.com/)
  • 100 push up challenge (see http://www.hundredpushups.com/)
  • And a couple of other floor exercises I don't know the name of!

After reading your floor work, I figure it is time to up my exercise program! You are amazing!

Don't think it...Do it! said...

Holy!!!
And this is without someone pushing you...just you on your own! WOW! I am so impressed!!!

I am going to aim to get at least one floor work session a week. That with kickboxing will be a good start! Will certainly do the plank and the side plank, even though the side plank really sucks! Push ups and sit ups yep...will add them. And reverse sit ups...i hate them but love them! that gives me a start!

Thank you! :)
Glad I was able to create a new post for you! LOL
