my friend Daphne gave to me:
10 Plank Jacks
10 Jump Lunges
5 triceps pushups
5 dive-bomber pushups
2 minutes of wall squats
and one minute planking by the tree
The plank jack is an exercise that combines cardiovascular exercise and core strengthening. You can do the plank jack on your elbows or with your arms extended as in the video shown below. You need to engage your core to stay stable during this movement. If you are still working on your core strength you can divide this into two sets of five reps each with a brief break between sets.
This is the half-way mark in our 12 day Fitmas challenge. These six exercises have worked your core, upper body and lower body. We hope you’re enjoying the challenge. Feel free to share your comments or feedback below.
