Studio 17’s Ilyana Capellan takes part in another five-minute Total Body Thursday workout led by Michelle Williams, owner of Vitality Fitness.
Follow the workout at home:
1. Wood chips
• The wood chop helps keep your core strong and stable and improves spinal flexibility. This exercise also strengthens your upper and lower body and improves your balance and posture.
2. Standing oblique crunch
• Adding standing side crunches to your workout routine helps target the oblique muscles and more effectively tightens the entire side wall of the abdominals. It also improves your balance, increases your strength and stability, and burns more calories than side crunches performed on a mat.
3. Aerial walk with dumbbells
•It creates stability on both sides of the body (hip flexors and glutes). Walking develops balance while increasing core stability. Exercise helps the aging athlete avoid dragging while walking, which can lead to falls. It helps to increase performance in single leg movements.
• Tuck-ups primarily target your core, including your upper and lower abs, obliques, and rectus abdominis (also known as the six-pack muscle).
