A simple exercise for Shoulders, Chest, Triceps, Latissimus, and Core Abdominals! How to exercise abs at home, for functional strength and injury prevention.
All right, another core exercise. We want to work the torso as a whole unit, but we’re also going to get in there with some triceps and shoulder work as well, maybe a little bit of chest. What we’re going to do is what I call elbow drops. So they’re going to get up on their hands and toes. And the first thing we’re going to do is drop down our right elbow to where the right palm is.
Go ahead, drop that down. And then our left elbow is where our left palm is. It’s very important that we use that same landing spot every time. Now we’re going to reverse the process. The right hand goes where the right elbow is and then back up and then continue. So now we’re doing right side elbow drops.
So obviously we’re working shoulders, chest, triceps, even a little bit of latissimus for stabilization, but we’re working that core. You noticed her body is turning side to side. It is a core stabilizer. So right through the quads, right through their shin muscles, onto the balls of their feet. Now we’re going come all the way up and just for a few more reps we’re going drop the left elbow now, left elbow to the heel.
Keep going, and back up. So the left elbow’s dropping first. Each time, now the left hand comes up. All right, good, nice job.
