Home you had a great semi-rest day cause it’s time to get back to work on our arms and abs!

We’ve got some more great workouts to follow along with and the best part is that these workouts will hit ALL of our upper body. The standing abs routine gets all sides on our core and the tank top arms hits our arms, shoulders, chest and back!

If you’re still sore from Tuesday (like me) then just take a deep breathe and power through it. You’ll be glad you did!

Great workouts don’t have to take tons of time and todays is no exception. Our standing ab workout will take 10 minutes and our arms will take another 9 minutes. Add in one :60 Plank and one :60 Wall sit and you are done. An entire upper body workout with our favorite wall sit in just 21 minutes. You can make 21 minutes for you right? I know you can!

Just like our Tuesday Brutal Butt and Thighs workout, follow along with the video and keep your motions controlled and purposeful. Don’t go faster than the video…no need to rush though it!

Here we go!

For our new Crew members, if you’re unsure about how to perform a plank or a wall sit correctly and want to get the most out of these exercises, please watch the videos below.

Plank: The following video is a great tutorial on planks for beginners. If you can’t hold a plank for :6o yet, that is ok. Shoot for :30, take a break for a few seconds, then finish the other :30. This exercise will get easier but you have to try!

Wall Sit: The wall sit is a great exercise to target our entire thigh area, our quad, our inner thigh, the back of the leg, the hamstring, and our glutes. Find a wall, come into a squat position with your feet out in front of you. Align your knees with your ankles and push your weight back into the wall here. Make sure that you’re digging through your heels as you’re in your squat position and that your legs are a 90 degree angle. Same thing as the plank, this exercise will get easier as you get stronger. Do your best!
