Sock It To Me Circuit

Sock It To Me Circuit

If you are short on time, this workout is for you! No equipment is necessary! I’m sure you can find a pair of socks! (Paper plates will also do the trick) That’s what you’ll need. Repeat once through or up to six times depending on your level of fitness.

Challenge your core and strength with these five moves!

Arm Circles

Start in high plank with a sock on each hand, hands shoulder-distance apart, shoulders over wrists, core, and the gluteals engaged.

Press your left hand into the sock and slowly draw a counterclockwise circle. Then repeat on the right.

Complete for 45 seconds, then rest 15 seconds.

Plank Jack

Start in a plank position, with your shoulders stacked above wrists, and your favorite socks on your toes. Slide your feet out to the sides, making sure your upper body remains still.

That's one rep. Complete for 45 seconds, then rest for 15 seconds.

Twisted Reverse Lunge

Stand with your feet hip-distance apart, with your socks on your feet, and hands behind your head. Slide back with your right leg and lower until your left knee is bent 90 degrees. Keeping your hands behind your head, twist your body to the left. Return to center, then push through your left foot.

That's one rep. Complete for 45 seconds, then rest for 15 seconds. Repeat on the other side.

Crouching Downward Dog

Start in tabletop position, with the socks on your feet. Your wrists should be under your shoulders and your neck aligned with your spine, then raise your hips slightly to lift your knees off the floor, with your toes tucked. Keeping your core tight and hips level, lift your left hand up to touch your right shoulder. Return to start. Then repeat on the right side. While bracing your core, extend your legs behind you, until your body forms a straight line from head to feet.

That’s one rep. Complete for 45 seconds. 15-second rest.

Glute Bridge

Start in a bridge position to initiate the movement, then slowly slide the feet towards the glutes. Slide your feet back out.

That’s one rep. Complete for 45 seconds. 15-second rest.

Until next time!

With love and beauty,
Xoxo,
