Hey everyone! If you saw my last post A Strong Center, you learned some great reasons to strengthen your core. This week, we are going to put that into practice! Below is a link to my 10 minute core video on YouTube.
In case you don’t want to watch the video, but do want to do the workout, I’ve written it below so you can do it anytime!
20 Windmills– These serve as a warm-up to get the spine moving, and stretch out the hamstrings
20 Standing Crunches-
30 second bridge with 10 lifts- This really strengthens the back muscles
30 second plank with 10 dips-
20 Knees to Elbows-
30/60/90 15 seconds with your legs at each angle up and down- This works different parts of your core as you go up and down the different angles
10 each Side Bend- Works the obliques which are instrumental in spine movement
30 second Superman- Works the back muscles
