Build strength and stability in your core with this 20-minute class. Feel the burn in your abs, back and glutes with plank variations such as mountain climbers, and leg raise variations such as scissors. Then focus on your obliques with side plank variations and bicycle twists.
It doesn’t matter whether you’ve danced before – this workout helps you build strength and tone around the key muscles that dancers use. There are a few steps to pick up, but it’s a lot slower than a typical dance class.
This 20-minute session aims to work as many muscle groups as possible, while keeping your heart rate up. The routine includes weights, but if you don’t have any at home, you could use canned goods, water bottles or even laundry detergent bottles.
This routine focuses on back mobility and glute strength, which is great if you're spending a lot of time sat down. It's split into 6 exercises, some of which you can modify for more of a challenge, as well as a relaxation section at the end.
