Hope everyone had a good week! It’s time for the second video of the 4 Week Workout Series that will focus on the core! What did you think about last week’s arms workout? I hope you felt sore after doing it! Those pulses can get rough by the third set! If you didn’t feel drained by the end, maybe it’s time to get a heavier weight! You go girl 🙂
So as promised, this week we are focusing on toning the core and flattening the belly. It’s important to build strength in your core because you use it in almost every single movement! Building core strength will help you balance and move more efficiently! I am a huge fan of planks and pilates moves over crunches for two reasons. One, people can easily cheat on crunches and strain their neck. I do it too! Secondly, the core shouldn’t be trained as if it’s a prime mover, the core is used to transfer weight, improve movement efficiency and control the force that we have in each movement, so crunches just don’t make much sense. Breaking Muscle goes more in depth into explaining this if you want to learn more!
Besides all the good that doing core exercises are, it also will help you strut in that bikini confidently 🙂
For this workout, you won’t need anything besides determination and a willingness to feel the burn! So lay it on back and join me for this workout!
