Today I did the core strengthening workout in the video below. I also ran 6.5 miles. I did a 3.5 mile run in the morning with Jesse, and a 3 mile run in the evening with Marie. If you don’t know who Marie is check out: Beginner: Full Body Toning to see her Before and After shots. Today is Marie’s birthday, and there was no way I was going to turn down the birthday girls request to go for a run. 🙂
With all of my ab exercises I aim to work the entire core. So this workout will help tone your abdominal muscles, obliques (love handles), back, and transverse abs. I did the workout interval style, so it only took 10 minutes to complete one round. The other option is to complete it for repetitions. Try to move quickly from one exercise to the next.
If you find these exercises difficult, it is important to remember that these movements work a lot of different muscles. Do what you can, and aim to increase the number of reps you are able to do each time.
Tomorrow I will be sharing a more intense workout, so be sure to check back for that. Have a good night!

I am gonna try this tomorrow for sure. I love a challenge.
Hi, I just did this workout, awesome. I think i am in the intermediate/semi-advanced level. I was able to keep up with you for most of it but not all. The one work out that kicked my butt was the heal tab abs. I loved the burn though.
That’s fantastic! Keep pushing, and as long as you are working the whole time you are doing great! Before you know it you will be doing all the reps at an advanced level!
