Workout Vocabulary

PLANK

Example: The plank is an excellent abdominal and core exercise. It works not only the rectus abdomens, but also the other ab muscles and the core muscles that run from the pelvis along the spine and up to the shoulder girdle.

Plank

PUSH UP

Example: The push up may just be the perfect exercise that builds both upper-body and core strength. Done properly, it is a compound exercise that uses muscles in the chest, shoulders, triceps, backs, abs, and even the legs.

MOUNTAIN CLIMBER

Example: Mountain climbers are great for building cardio endurance, core strength and agility. You work several different muscle groups with mountain climbers- it’s almost like getting a total body work out with just one exercise.

LEG RAISES

Example: Lying leg raises are touted as a killer abs exercise- because they are working on abs more effectively. But your hip flexors actually reap some major benefits of this move, says Epperly. So don’t be surprised if your hips feel a bit of the burn during this one.

Leg Raises

SQUAT

Example: keep your head up, Torso straight, and your core engaged as you squat, sending your hips back and down.

JUMPING JACK

Example: Jumping jacks are an efficient total-body workout that you can do almost anywhere. This exercise is part of what’s called plyometrics, or jump training.

BURPEE

Example: The burpee is a combination move consisting of a push up, squat thrust and a vertical jump. Although push up, squats and jumps all contribute to building muscle, the biggest strain while doing a burpee is on your heart.
