After an unfortunate loss in the 4th round of Wimbledon this past weekend, Serena Williams is still our girl. This tennis pro has won 13 career Grand Slams making her name known everywhere. Her racket skills have skyrocketed her to fame and kept her fit since the start.
With the release of her Nike Training Club Core Power workout back in March, we felt it appropriate to share some of her routines. Your abs will be feeling it later!
Stability Back Ball Extension
You will need to start with the stability ball under your chest while your hands and feet are on the floor. Placing your hands behind your head, use your core to lift your head and shoulders until you feel the stretch. Lower your head back to the start position and repeat.
Resistance Band Lateral Step Replace
Start with the band under both of your feet, one at each end of it. Your feet should be a shoulder width apart. Keeping your core as tight as possible, use one leg to step sideways stretching the band. With the other foot, step to bring both feet back to shoulder width. Repeat until time to change direction.
Stability Ball Transfer
Lay on the floor with your arms above your head. Squeeze the ball holding it between your feet. Using your core, lift the ball to hip level then lift your shoulder blades and raise your arms to transfer. Lower your body without losing form back to the start position.
