Core & More Cardio Workout: 15 Minute HIIT Bodyweight
Please follow and like us:
It’s time for another workout! Today’s workout is focused on the core, and utilizing cardiovascular movements to maximize your fat burn. It’s a great one for building strength and lean muscle.
You can repeat this workout to make it higher intensity. Always focus on form during each exercise. As always, my core workouts are designed to work your core from every angle, for a strong, lean, tight midsection. That means we work the front, sides, and back of your muscles, as well as the deep transverse abs, which work as a corset to pull your waist in tight and trim.
If the exercises are difficult for you, that’s okay! You will build the strength to get through them all. One of the most important things to start focusing on from day one, is keeping your abs engaged throughout each exercise. You never want them to bulge outward during exercises. To practice this, focus on pulling your core in tight, and toward your back: Now make sure you can hold it in that position while still breathing. It’s different than “sucking it in.” You should be able to breath the entire time, but also hold this core engagement during each exercise. This activates the transverse abs. So when I say “Keep the Core Strong” or “Engage Your Abs” this is what I mean. It is one of the key movements in recovery from Diastasis Recti, and can help prevent issues and build up of intra-abdominal pressure during core exercises. It will also help you achieve maximum benefit from each exercise.
Have fun with today’s workout!
