Thanks for joining me! This workout for your arms, shoulders and core is a great one to do when you’re short on time and want to really maximize the burn!
You can definitely repeat this if you have time (and aren’t too sore) – you’ll have to let me know in the comments how this one round feels, for me it was perfect!
10-Minute Strong Arms and Core
1: Tall Plank Hold 0:45
- Come onto your hands and toes, hold your belly button in and up and keep your back flat. Make sure your hands are aligned with your wrists.
- Option to drop down to your knees
2: Triceps Push Ups - 5
- From your plank, keep your elbows hugging in and lower down halfway. Press back up.
3: Tall Plank Hold 0:30
4: Rotating Planks - 5 each side
- From your plank, keep your core engaged and rotate to your right, stacking your right hand below your right shoulder. You can scissor or stack your feet.
- With control, rotate back to tall plank. Pause briefly, then rotate to the left.
- You can also do this with your knees down.
5: Triceps Push Ups to Rotating Plank - 5 each side
- Put it together and come to tall plank. Keep the elbows hugging in and lower halfway for a tricep push up.
- As you press back up, rotate to the right, coming into right side plank. Rotate back to plank and do another tricep push up.
- Rotate to the left. Repeat.
- You can do this with your knees down as well, or switch to kneeling at any point when you start to fatigue.

- While still in dolphin (forearms on the mat) extend your left leg up high, then bring your knee toward your nose.
