Plank: Place forearms on the ground making sure that your elbows are directly below your shoulders and arms are parallel to the ground at shoulder distance. Straighten your back and keep abs contracted, hold this pose for 1-2 minutes or longer and repeat.

Ab Roller: Hold an Ab roller in front of you with both hands and knees in push-up position (this will be your starting position). Slowly roll the Ab roller straight forward, stretching your body in a straight line.

For optimal results, go down as far as you can without touching the ground, keeping your core tight by inhaling. Roll yourself back towards your knees and exhaling on the way back.  Perform 3 sets of 8 reps.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

Sit & Throw: While sitting down, knees bent in a sit-up position about three feet apart from a wall or your Bodytek workout partner, place a medicine ball midpoint on your chest. Now, as you crunch up into a sit-up throw the ball towards your partner in a two handed chest pass. Your partner should then send the ball back to you in a parallel direction. This will place you catching the ball over your head, and recoiling back into a sit-up position. Repel the ball back as quickly as possible. Perform 3 sets of 8 reps.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–
Russian Twists: Lie on a mat with knees up like in crunch position, both feet under something that will not move or have your Bodytek partner hold them down for resistance. Elevate your upper body so that it creates a V-shape with your torso and thighs (this is your starting position).

With just your own body weight or with added resistance such as a dumbbell, twist your torso diagonally to the left so that the dumbbell is parallel with the floor and on the side of your hip. Now move in the opposite direction performing the same steps for the right side. Make sure to keep your core contracted and back straight. Repeat exercise in 3 reps of 8.

Don’t forget these helpful tips!

• Drink a ton of water! Not literally of course, but you should increase your water intake to about 1-1.5 gallons daily. This helps to flush out any fatty toxins out of the body and most importantly keep you hydrated during your Bodytek HIIT Training.

• Watch the Sodium to avoid bloating! The American Heart Association recommends you consume no more than 2,400 milligrams of sodium daily — roughly 1 teaspoon of table salt. That’s enough sodium to replenish your supply even if you work up a major sweat.

• Meal Prep: Keep your metabolism burning by eating all day! Yes, we recommend eating 5-8 small meals daily to continuously keep your metabolism running and burning calories. If you don’t have time for meals because you’re on the go, try incorporating protein shakes into your diet so that you never long periods of time without eating.
