Everyone needs a good ab workout that they can do anywhere. Today we are doing a workout to get a stronger core from your living room!
The core is the foundation of the body. A strong core will protect your lower back, improve your balance, ease joint pain and reduce your risk of injury while working out.
We all want a flat stomach, but this ab routine will give you even more than that!
I have filled this workout with all of my favorite ab exercises. A little warning though, my favorite exercises are usually the most painful. I know I am evil.
If you enjoy workouts like this one, make sure you check out my MFit home workout plans. Each of plan comes with exclusive core workouts!
You will need sliders for the last two exercises in this workout. If you do not have sliders, feel free to buy some in the MFit Amazon store. You can also swap out the sliders for towels or paper plates. All you need is something that will slide across the floor.
The sliding exercises are meant to emulate the movements done with a pilates reformer. The push and pull of these exercises will force your core to contract very tightly. Focus on having the correct form during the sliding moves as they are quite difficult.
