Aidan’s Bonus Core Workout

This core workout is short. You can make it as long as you want. We put it on the end of our other workout, but I didn’t want to skip the explanation, and I didn’t want to hog up the other video with the content. We did 4 core exercises for 1 minute each. I had Aidan use the BOSU ball and I used my sandbag. He had the ball facing up-right. If you would like to make it harder, flip the ball over and balance on the flat surface. You can also balance your feet, instead of your hands on the part that wobbles. If you don’t have a BOSU ball, you can use a stability ball, medicine ball or a bench.

1. Plank walk Clockwise around
2. Plank walk Counter Clockwise around
3. Side Plank Right Hold
4. Side Plank Left Hold

Enjoy,

Aidan’s Super Summer Workout

It has been a busy summer. It has been hot,and the boys and their friends have been making good use of the swimming pool. But it is always a sloppy mess, so it makes it hard to record any videos. Salt water is not nice on equipment. Aidan was over and wanted to do another workout. He was just the inspiration I needed to find somewhere to record. We shot the video today over at the school. Besides a drive-by by the police, everything went smooth. We had a neighbor girl join us, but she did not want to be on the video. She said, “maybe next time!” The breakdown is below. If you are a beginner, start with one or two rounds and work up from there. I offer didn’t options and variations on the exercises, so you should find something that fits your fitness level. Otherwise, feel free to substitute your own variation into the workout. Just remember to keep moving. Set your timer for stopwatch and perform 3 rounds with a short break in between each round. Remember to work at your own pace and level.
