During this week’s lunchtime strength workouts I’m going to be focusing on my core because it could be the underlying cause of my hip/leg injury.
I take advantage of my lunch hour to get about 3 workouts a week. I either run outdoors, run indoors at the local gym or do a strength workout. I’ve talked before about not feeling comfortable doing strength training in public.
One of the best ways to get myself to feel comfortable is to come with a plan. I write down my plans here, on my blog, so I can access them later from my iPhone, as well as for the benefit of my readers at the same time. Just note that I am NOT a professional.
This week I’m going to work on my core. It’s one of the reason’s I had a hip/leg injury. I’ve been working with a physio therapist to help me get back on track. Now that I’m done with physiotherapy, I want to continue strengthening my core. Here is what my lunch strength workout will look like this week. I go through the list of excercises 3 times.
- Plank – 30 second
- Side bridges – 10 on each side
- 20 squats
- Side balance crunch – 10 on each side
- Sliding pike 15
- Ab crunches on balance ball 30
I will finish off with some foam rolling
