Fire Up Your Core in 6 Minutes
As a personal trainer, the most common exercise question I get asked is, “What can I do to strengthen my core?” This is a great question because the term “core” is often used interchangeably with “abs” even though the two are quite different. Your core includes your abs, your glutes (butt), lower back muscles, and your hips. Your abs, well, they’re just your abs.
Training your core will give you stronger abs, but it will also improve your posture, alleviate low back pain, help you avoid various injuries, and can improve your athletic performance. So let the core training begin!
This first workout includes three simple exercises and will take less than five minutes to complete one circuit. If you’re feeling ambitious, try doing the entire routine a second time through.
- Exercise #1: Skyscrapers — 10 per side
- Exercise #2: Windshield Wipers — 10 per side
- Exercise #3: Army Crawls — 36 steps
Day two’s workout includes four challenging moves that can be completed in five minutes or less. Again, try a second round of this core circuit if you want an extra challenge.
- Exercise #1: Breakdancer — 15 per side
- Exercise #2: Skydiver — Hold for 30 seconds
- Exercise #3: Dead Bug — 10 reps
- Exercise #4: Thread the Needle — 10 per side
Now it’s time for Day 3, our elite core workout!
This workout consists of four super-tough core exercises that are performed in a quick, six-minute circuit that will test every inch of your core strength.
- Exercise #1: Crab kicks into Superman — 6 per side
- Exercise #2: Star leg raise — 10 per side
- Exercise #3: Side V-ups — 10 per side
- Exercise #4: Over/unders — 10 per side
Important note from the author:
Is it possible to melt away one to two pounds of stubborn body fat every single day?
It sounds insane, but according to the scientific proof — and the thousands who have already
done it themselves using this secret — the answer is YES.
You will never guess how it’s done… (Hint: It’s NOT about taking sketchy pills or killing
yourself at the gym).
That’s right – and it’s important to know that this isn’t about some “magic weight loss
shake,” or the “calories out-calories in” model that the medical community has been
trying to brainwash us with for decades.
Not at all.
It’s about a simple yet potent method developed and perfected by Brian Flatt – who is a
health & nutritionist coach, and also a personal trainer who has been in the fitness world
for over a decade.
