Today’s workout is focused on strengthening every muscle of the core. You will also be working your arms, legs and back during this workout, so don’t be surprised if you feel it everywhere! It’s low impact, but very effective.
In the video I did 30-seconds of plank for each pose. If you want a more intense workout you can extend the intervals to 60-seconds per pose. You also have the option of repeating this workout.
The variations I used in this workout will target your core from every angle: front, sides and back. As always, focus on using the correct form. I also included a cardio video below as an optional bonus burn. If you want to see more definition through your mid-section you need to combine strengthening with fat burning.
Yesterday’s workout was: 30-Minute Full Body Home Workout & Fat Burn. When I filmed this workout I paired it with a 5-mile run outside, but you can do it on it’s own, or pair with a cardio option of your choice.
12 Rounds of 10/30.
