THE BUT­TER­FLY CATCHER

Women's Health (UK) - - BEST BODY -

An­other AMRAP fin­isher – work­ing for 12 mins, try to com­plete as many rounds as you can be­fore the timer hits zero. Don’t cheat on the press-ups – just do the move­ment on your knees if the full ver­sion is too hard.

PRESS-UP

Do: 6 reps

(a) Start in a high plank po­si­tion so you’re in a straight line from head to toe, with your hands slightly wider than shoul­der-width apart.

(b) Keep­ing your body straight, bend your el­bows and lower un­til your chest nearly touches the floor.

Push back up, keep­ing your core en­gaged, to re­turn to a plank.

BUT­TER­FLY SIT-UP

Do: 12 reps

(a) Lie on your back with your arms on the floor over your head, your knees bent and fallen open to the sides and the soles of your feet to­gether.

(b) Brace your core and sit up, reach­ing your fin­gers towards your toes. Once you’ve ex­tended as far as pos­si­ble, roll slowly back down to the start­ing po­si­tion.

GOBLET SQUAT

Do: 24 reps

(a) Stand tall with your feet shoul­der­width apart, hold­ing a kettlebell at your chest. Choose as heavy a weight as you can safely lift.

(b) Squat down un­til your thighs are par­al­lel with the floor. Pause at the bot­tom, then push back up to the start­ing po­si­tion. Keep your core en­gaged through­out.
