If you’re too busy to go to the gym and you want to spice up your at home core workout, you’re in the right place!
Today we are showcasing a set of core moves, with a piece of equipment you already have at home! This week you can use official Gliding Discs, or you can use paper plates, t-shirts (like me!), towels or anything that slides on your floor! Here are six different core moves using gliders!
1. Knee Tucks
Start in a plank position with your back flat and gliders under your feet. Using your core, tuck both knees into your chest. Slide your legs back out until you are in a flat plank again.
Start in a plank position with gliders under your feet. Keeping your legs straight as possible, use your core to drive your hips up until you create a V position with your body. Slide back down into your plank, keeping your back flat, legs straight, and core engaged.
3. Plank Kick Through
Start in a plank position with arms and legs extended and gliders under your feet. Kick one leg under your other and across your body. Bring your leg as straight as possible, then slide it back to plank position. Repeat on the other side.
4. Army Crawl
Start in a plank on your forearms with gliders under your feet. Using one arm at a time, crawl forwards, sliding your feet behind you, and maintaining a flat plank position. Then crawl backward to your starting position.
Lay on your back with your knees up and feet planted on the floor with gliders underneath. Lift your hips up until there is a straight line from your knees down to your shoulders. Keeping your hips lifted, slowly slide one leg out straight and down towards the ground, then use your hamstrings, glutes, and back to pull that leg back into the bridge position. Repeat on the other side.
6. Arm Circles
Start in a plank position with arms extended and gliders under both hands. One at a time, draw a big circle on the ground with your hand. Use your abs to hold your hips still as you draw the circle. Repeat with the other arm.
