Plank Bedroom Workout Purely Training #51

by purelytwins

Good Morning Purely Fit Friends!

Did you catch any of the Oscars last night? We munched on some chocolate hazelnut cookies while we dreamed of our Oscar dress 🙂 Anyone else dream of being at the Oscars? We thought Ellen did an incredible job! Love Ellen.

Actors and actresses are under a lot of pressure to look a certain way. Right? Well, we bet they probably would love to be able to workout in the privacy of their own bedroom. We think they would enjoy this quick ab workout.


Today we have a fun workout. Actually over the next few Move-it-Mondays we are doing a bedroom workout series.

What do we mean  by “new bedroom workout series”?

First, we are filming the workouts in Michelle’s bedroom, so that will be fun!  haha

Secondly, these workouts are to showcase you CAN workout anywhere!

This workout is great if you live in a small apartment, maybe are a college student living in a dorm or if you happen to travel a lot this would be perfect to do in a hotel room.

10 minute plank workout that will leave your abs sore.

Honestly we struggled with this workout. It has been many weeks since we have done any type of planking.

Shocking we know. We used to be the planking queens. And after doing this workout, we will be doing them more often! Our abs were sore for a few days.

Having a strong core is the key to all daily movement.

This workout challenges your core perfectly! A little mix of cardio from the plank jacks to 5 challenging ab exercises.

Purely training workout #51 might only be 10 minutes long, but we promise you will be glad it’s no longer than that.  Your abs will be on FIRE the whole time. Really your whole body will be feeling the burn.

Plank jacks are the cardio piece of the workout that will keep your heart rate up, burning more calories. Along with 5 moves that will twist and strengthen your core.

Are you ready to take this 10 minute plank challenge?

Here is the workout breakdown:

We suggest:

  • A-fits (advanced peeps) :  Push yourself hard in each move. Try to limit your breaks.
  • B-fits (beginner peeps):  Go at a slower speed, take breaks when needed. Follow the modifications we mention in the video. Omit the jumps. Set gymboss timer to 15/15 intervals.

Are you ready to fill the burn? Come and join us in the bedroom 😉

Promise this workout will become your favorite core workout.

Okay maybe not your favorite as it’s a KILLER! We feel it’s a great way to challenge your abs.

I haven’t done much core work lately, and I need to work on that. I do some similar plank moves, and they really are killer!

Yes quick workouts are the best!

I adore Ellen too, she was kind of the only reason I watched the Oscars.
I’ve been totally slacking on my planking, this looks like a good one!

Lisa same here! Love Ellen.

Liz @ I Heart Vegetables March 3, 2014 - 1:17 pm

I love that your workouts can be done literally anywhere! I can’t always make it to the gym, but knowing I can sweat in my living room is a good option 🙂 I just did some power yoga on my living room floor! haha

Taylor@ LIftingRevolution March 3, 2014 - 1:52 pm

Looks awesome! I haven’t planked in a while either, so it will be fun to give it a go!

purelytwins March 3, 2014 - 5:00 pm

Taylor glad we are not the only ones who have been slacking in the plank area

I like that you included plank jacks, but I do sort of hate them 😉

I did you workout this morning and it was great! Good job on putting it together. My abs were ready to be done right from the start! : ) I appreciate the creativity put into your workouts – keep it up!

I haven’t see that kind of workout before. It definitely looks tiring. 10 minutes might be just a tad long though. Maybe just until I get tired. 🙂
