Quick, effective core workout in less than 10 minutes!
I love me a fast circuit I can throw in at the end of a crazy day, early in the morning when I’m still waking up, or at the end of a lifting workout. This is the core circuit I’ve been using recently.
It may look a little different from other “abs” workouts you’ve seen. This is because your core is a system of muscles, not just your rectus abdominis (that elusive six pack). It includes your lower back, glutes, and obliques. You gotta train it all! Some benefits of having a strong core…
- Improved sports performance
- Decreased likelihood of developing low back pain
- Reduced chance of injury during functional activities
- Less recurrence of injury
It is SO much more than a six pack (but that’s a post for another time 🙂 ).
This circuit will cover all your bases and leave you sore the next day. I’ll also be posting a demo on instagram, so check it out! If you test it out, let me know in the comments below.
Looking for a longer workout? Add intervals of cardio between the core exercises: jump rope, do some burpees or perform high knees. These options will also increase your core burn.
What’s your go-to workout when you’re busy?
