Upper Body & Core

This workout alternates between the upper body and core.  Feel the strength in your shoulders, chest, and triceps followed by front-to-back core work. Here we go.

Upper Body & Core

12 Minutes – aim for as many rounds as possible of:

  • 10 push-ups
  • 10 sit-ups
  • 20 bent T-ups
  • 10 supermans

Fun for Kids:

Create a superhero mantra for each move.  For example, push-ups might be “we’ve got this”, sit-ups can be “tough to the core”, bent-t ups could be “spread those wings and fly”, and supermans can be something silly like “on our way to save the day.”  Have fun.  The more laughter, the better – your abs will agree!
