If you're tired of the same old core workout, TOB: Abdominals is your ticket to switching it up. Yes, this 30-minute class incorporates some crunches and planks, but V-sits, revolved angle pose, and other unique exercises will challenge your core in new ways. You will begin this class kneeling, focusing on your breath and the blessings in your life. After warming up your body, you will jump right into a challenging reverse plank series and a few traditional ab-sculpting moves on the mat. Transition to standing for squats and side crunches, targeting your obliques and all the muscles in your legs and glutes. Recruit the muscles in your entire body—and work on your balance—with angle pose, revolved angle pose, and open arabesque. Wind down from this heart-pumping routine by stretching your hamstrings and the muscles in your back, core, and inner thighs. The Scriptures and meditations throughout the class present a divine way to see yourself and others.Like this class? You will love the other videos in the Theology of the Body Series.
