You have made it to Day 19 of the #25DaysofMFit, and the workouts are not getting any easier. Today I have an amazing slider core workout for you.
I have posted lots of ab workouts on this blog before, but this workout will challenge your muscles in a completely different way. The sliding exercises in the video below will force you to contract your muscles and move in a way your body is not used to.
Many of today’s exercises are inspired by pilates. In fact, all of the slider movements can be done with a pilates reformer. Pilates classes and equipment can be quite pricey, so this workout will hopefully give you an affordable way to do those intense core workouts.
If you do not have sliders, you can get the ones I am using in my Amazon Store. If you feel like getting a little creative, you can swap out the sliders for towels (if you are on hardwood or tile) or paper plates (if you are working out on carpet).
This workout is great for strengthening those deep core muscles. If getting a strong midsection is important to you, make sure you check out my 4-Week Flat Abs Plan!
