FIIT | 4 Moves to Whittle Your Waist


Personal trainer and fitness blogger, Katie Dunlop, brings a dynamic background of yoga, barre and boot camp to our FIIT Fridays series. Tune in for key moves to get your spring slim down started. April’s focus is all about inner thighs, hips, and glutes. This week’s four-move sequence includes a Standing Cross Crunch, Forearm Pike, Side Plank Toe Touch, and a Passé Oblique Rotation. Let’s break that down for you:

Standing Cross Crunch

Stand straight with a little space between your feet. Lift one leg and the opposite arm, bringing them together as if your elbow is going to touch your kneecap. Repeat on the other side. This move is key for working out your core. Washboard abs, we’re coming for you!

Forearm Pike

Take a small balance ball and lower your body to the ground on all fours. Take your legs out straight and position the ball right under your shoes (below your ankle). Roll your feet up and down the length of the ball while tucking your core in, and bringing your butt up. This workout targets the core and tests your balance like no other!

Side Plank Toe Touch

Take your arm out to the side, and lower your body weight onto that arm. Take your other arm and raise it high above your head. Kick your leg up and take your arm down as if they were going to touch. Do not bend your knees.  A full set of these will target your core, while also working your arms and outer thighs.

Passé Oblique Rotation

Stand straight with a little space between your feet. Take one arm straight out in front of you, and swing it all the way back while kicking the leg on the same side, up. Incorporating this movement will tone your obliques because muffin tops are never on the summer menu.
