5 minutes to a stronger core

Hey everyone!

As promised I have put together five of my favourite core exercises. You can run it through once at one set, fifteen reps OR you can lengthen it and do three sets and fifteen reps.

I have uploaded a quick video to YouTube that you can watch HERE to see each exercise in motion. Please ignore my camera presence…I’m working on not getting flustered and forgetting what I’m talking about hah

please, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to comment or ask 🙂

Single leg toe touch. Remember to keep you neck neutral, chin up, and shoulders off the mat.

Slow assisted crunch. Place your feet firmly on the ground, and place your hands comfortably on the back of your legs. Slowly lower your back to the mat, and lift back up to sitting.

Dolphin plank! Make sure your bum stays flat and your back neutral. You have the option to switch to high plank, and repeat OR hold in this position.

High plank:  keep your spine neutral, elbows straight but not locked. Option to rotate with dolphin plank.

Single leg bicycle crunch. Hold your hands by your head and reach your elbow towards your opposite knee. Keep that knee up and lower the shoulders to the ground and repeat.

Side plank. Option to lift the top hand (as I have). To make this move even harder, try pulsing the hips from straight (as I am), to dropped just above the mat. Keep the spine neutral and the shoulders and hips stacked.
