#tuesdaycorenight #11 – November 3, 2015

Howdy! Tuesday core night is revived again for another week. Let’s get pumped up to work on some core! Just like every week, this won’t take up much of your time, so please consider giving it a shot! But always remember: core is important. I say this every week to remind you… and, to remind myself.

I’ve been doing this core night thingy for awhile now and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback. Thank you so much to everyone who spends a few minutes to humour me, it really does mean a lot.

Without further ado, here’s this week’s workout. I’ve decided to throw it back to the basics, well, climbing basics, with some good old fashioned leg lifts. This is a great exercise for climbers because it’s working the same muscles used to bring your legs back up on the wall after a foot cut. Unfortunately, you do need a pull up bar or something you can hang from for this workout. My gym has a hangboard so I will do it there! Enjoy:)

Max leg lifts, 5 min rest

Repeat x4

Me mid leg-lift. Hang and slowly bring straight legs up to a 90 degree bend at your waist, featured here. Slowly lower your legs back down, trying not to swing or use momentum.

 

**Note: This is much harder than it seems. If you find that you are unable to keep your legs straight, bend your legs and bring your knees high. This variation is almost just as good, so don’t worry!
