Hey guys, its Mike Chang. In today’s workout, Sanela and I are working on our chest, shoulders, triceps and our abs. We decided to make the workout more intense by cutting out the rest times. Its all bodyweight exercises, so you don’t need any equipment to do them. Plus we are working out against the time so you don’t need to worry about counting your reps!
First Exercise: Side to Side Push Ups
Its just like a regular push up except you are moving your hands and feet together to the side as you do a push up. This causes you to work more of your shoulders and also engages more core and ab muscles.
Second Exercise: Mountain Climbers
Mountain climbers is a really easy exercise, but very effective for burning a lot of calories. When you don’t rest and go from the side to side push ups right into the mountain climbers, its a super killer way to work your core and burn the hell out of your shoulders too!
Third Exercise: Jack Knives
This ab exercise works both your lower abs and upper abs at the same time. To do the exercise, just lay on your back, crunch up and reach for your ankles while you raise your legs up at the same time. This causes both your upper and lower abs to be worked. You can hold a weight to make this exercise more challenging, but try it first without weights and I bet it will create a great burn for your midsection.
