Exercise of The Week: Twisting Knee Tucks
This week we are throwing caution to the wind and trying something a bit more challenging (well challenging to those of us that are coordination impaired). The twisting knee tucks are a great way to get cardio in, AND work your abs and obliques. It may take a little practice to get this move right, but it is worth it.
You start off in a plank position like in A. Your feet should be together and your shoulders should be over your hands. Carefully bend your knees and jump your feet forward toward your right hand. Make sure you are keeping your legs closed during this movement.You should look like B. Quickly jump back to starting position. Repeat this movement on the opposite side. That is one rep. Do this for 20 reps. That’s all there is to it 🙂
Make it easier: If you are having a bit of trouble with coordination do this move without the jump. Instead of jumping move your feet one at a time toward the side, but do it as fast as you can. Once you feel confident with this movement you can also upgrade and add the jump!
