This was fun (shakes head vigorously side-to-side). Well, it was purposeful, anyway. I’m a big believer in quality over quantity when I #exercise, especially for us #moms. I don’t know about you, but I simply can’t spend hours working out at this point in my life. Someday, maybe, but not these days…with two teenage step-kids, an 8 year old and twin toddlers! Man, I’m tired just typing about all those humans.
Coupling weights with intensity is a lot of bang for your buck. BUT, of course…you have to move smart and controlled.
Note to mamas–these are more advanced moves. The battle rope can be a challenging time to mind your #core and pelvic floor. So if you are still working on core control or have a diastasis recti you are working to improve, don’t jump right into this. You can practice the battle rope in slow, controlled movements rather than for intensity.
Here’s the workout:
Woman Makers (upright row+clean+press)–10 reps
Battle Rope Exercises–30 seconds of each
Elevated Bridge–30 reps
The bridge is your “rest”…the time to catch your breath. As little rest as possible. 5 rounds. BOOM…you’re done and burning calories all day!!
