Quick Core Sculpt: 10-Minutes Per Round with Bonus Cardio Burn-Home Workout

Please follow and like us:

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re ready to workout! Today’s workout is focused on strengthening and sculpting the core. I have also included two cardio videos below if you would like to add a bonus cardio burn. A strong core will help you with any workout you do.

There are many reasons to strengthen your core beyond the aesthetic.

A Stronger core means:
Better Posture
Less Chance of Back Injury
Better Balance
Improved Athletic Performance
Improved Biomechanics-leading to less chance of injury to your knees or hips.
Improved Breathing

I am going to be writing some new articles, and doing another Q & A video. If you have any questions post them here or on my Facebook page.

I paired today’s workout with a long (4-mile) walk outside. Yesterday I did a 7-Mile run and stepped on a street hockey ball. I turned my ankle. It’s a little bit sore today so I wanted to keep my workout low impact to prevent any problems.

I apologize for the lighting in today’s video! Jesse was out doing a 15-Mile run so I set up the camera to film myself. I wasn’t able to monitor the lighting. I tried to edit the video enough so you can see all of the movements clearly. Gambit enjoyed being a guest star today.

Have fun!
