So. Week FOUR of the #PahlaBMiniChallenge series (grab this week’s challenge here) is all about recovery and cut back, with LOW INTENSITY workouts all week. But let me clarify that low intensity does NOT mean easy! 🙂 In fact, I’m pretty sure that even when I say the word “easy,” it doesn’t mean easy!
Yes, this workout has us down on the ground the whole time, with no transitions to standing. Yes, the pace is gentle and the rep count is friendly. But the exercises? Still plenty challenging!
This great mat workout will shape your shoulders, abs and thighs in just 30 minutes, including warm up. We’re focusing on controlled body movements with low heart rate to slim and tone your lean muscles and develop core stability. There’s lots of work in the plank position, as well as instructions for how to modify the workout to best meet your needs.
Follow along in real time with me in the video below.
