Whenever I watch the show Shark Tank, I always ask myself “Why didn’t I think of that”?! I am always so impressed with the ideas these people have (well, not always but a lot of the time).
It’s a great way to find new products that I would never have known about before. Like the Scrub Daddy! How fun is that? I get excited about little things like how to make dish-washing easier (because I hate it).
I really enjoy watching the show, but it’s another hour-long favorite that I can make much more productive with a workout! Core workouts are my absolute favorite, so I’m giving Shark Tank a new idea with this core workout. See if you can follow along!
Are your abs burning just looking at that? This workout combines several core variations including some crunches, planks, oblique work, and even a little back work too. You will most likely complete each exercise at least one time during the course of the show.
Lie on your back with your hands behind your head and elbows out wide. Bring one knee towards your chest while twisting your core. Keep the other leg lifted off the ground. Try to touch your elbow to your opposite knee and keep your shoulders off the ground.
Side Plank Raises
Start in a side plank position on your hand. Lower your hip towards the ground without actually touching the ground. Raise your hip back up to side plank position. Repeat all your repetitions on one side before switching to the other.
Begin standing with your feet hip-width apart. Roll down leading with your head until your hands touch the ground. Walk your hands out into plank position. Hold 2-3 seconds. Walk your hands back towards your feet and roll your body up to standing position.
Sit on your bottom with your legs out in front of you. Lean back slightly and lift your legs off the floor. Kick one leg straight into the air, keeping the leg straight. Switch legs. Try to keep the bottom leg off the ground.
Lie on your stomach with your arms extended in front of you. Lift your arms and your legs off the ground as high as you can. Pull your elbows back towards your sides while also bending your knees so that your feet cross. Return back to straight arms and legs and then lower to the ground.
Start in an elbow plank position. Bring one knee towards your elbow. Try to get your knee as close to your elbow as you can while keeping your hips square to he ground. Straighten that leg and switch sides.
Start in an elbow plank position. Straighten one arm out in front of you, hold for 2-3 seconds and return to plank. Switch arms. Make sure to keep your hips square to the ground and reduce rocking.
Plank Cross Throughs
Start in a high plank position. Bring one leg underneath your body and tap the floor with your foot. Your hips will twist during this exercise.
Sit on your bottom with your legs out in front of you. Lean back slightly and lift your legs off the floor. Cross one foot over the other and then switch. It should be a continuous motion with you feet. Try to keep your legs as straight as you can.
