19 Mar Get A Stronger Core From Your Living Room
Spring break is right around the corner, which means it is time to try on last year’s swimsuits and hit the beach. Before you do that, let’s work the abs!
I have filled this workout with all of my favorite ab exercises… and you know if I like them, they are probably pretty painful!
I’ve been challenge my MFit Members recently by giving them extra core workouts to do each week. The core is the foundation of the body. A strong core will keep your lower back safe, help you stay balanced and prevent joint pain or injury while working out. We all want a flat stomach, but this ab routine will give you even more than that!
You will need sliders for the last two exercises in the workout. If you do not have sliders, feel free to buy a pair in the MFit Amazon store, or follow my instructions in the video to use something else!
The sliding exercises are meant to emulate the movements done with a pilates reformer. The push and pull of these movements will force your core to contract very tightly. These are the most challenging exercises in today’s routine, so make sure you focus on having the correct form!
