This was my workout last night. It’s a quick core workout, but you will definitely feel it! This routine works the core from every angle, to strengthen and tone your mid-section.
I incorporated exercises to pull-in the waist, and work the love handle area. The core is more than just the “six-pack.” It includes your back and sides as well.
Building strength through your core helps protect your low back, and provide postural alignment for everything you do. If you build a balanced core you can reduce back pain. As a bonus, the postural improvements can help re-align your hips and get rid of the “belly pouch” that many people notice in their low abs.
