25 Minute Core Workout

Posted on: July 23rd, 2013 by paul

When we travel, there is always an excuse not to workout. ‘There’s no gym’, ‘I don’t have time’, etc. Luckily there are plenty of workouts that fit right into this category. Today’s high-impact workout can be completed in 25 minutes and you don’t need any gym equipment. This means you can get yourself in shape in a nearby park, beach, or even your hotel room.

25 Minute Core Workout

Warm Up

Jump Rope:

– 30 two foot skips                           – 30 alternating skips                       – 20 front to back skips

– 15 single leg skips (each leg)     – 20 side to side skips                      – 20 double under skips

Medicine Ball Core Activation

Use a 10-30 lb medicine ball to complete 3 sets of 10 reps for each of these exercises:

– Bus Drivers (set your core, then hold the medicine ball like a steering wheel and rotate from side to side as if you were driving a bus)

– Wood Chops (hold the ball in the same way as the previous exercise then complete 10 chops on each side)

– Figure 8’s

Core Workout

The core workout consists of 5 sets of 4 exercises that must be completed one after the other followed by a one minute break. Therefore, each of the 5 sets will consist of 5 minutes which means the total workout time will be 25 minutes. Keep track of how many reps you complete each set and try not to have a drop off from your first to last set. Try to complete the entire minute without taking a break but if necessary, take small breaks and continue as soon as possible.

5 Sets – 1 Minute of Each Exercise

  3. V – Ups
  4. Burpees
  5. Rest

Cool Down Stretch

For today’s cool down stretch, focus on lengthening the muscles in your core. Some good stretches at the upward/downward dog, bridge, side bend, and laying on a Swiss ball.
