Have you ever wished you could clean your floors and work your abs at the same time?? NO? Well you should, because what an amazing way to muli-task! LOL JK Only weird people like me probably think of these things…..
Many people think that in order to get results from a workout you have to go to a gym, you have to work up an clothing drenching sweat, or you have to be in pain the next day – this is not true! Sure a few workouts per week should include some of the above factors; however, not all workouts have to make you sweat through your clothing and it is not always good to be unbearably sore day following your workout.
Before I show you one of my favorite core training exercises that can be done at home, make sure you remember doing this exercise alone will not give you a “6-pack”. A flat tummy is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise, so doing this exercise as well as eating a clean diet high in protein will produce the best results.
Ok now on to the good stuff!!
CHECK OUT MY FAVORITE CORE TRAINING EXERCISE THAT CAN BE DONE AT HOME!
In video below I am demonstrating this exercise with a push up in-between, but if you are not able to a push up just omit that part and only push your body back and fourth (it’s still a great arm workout!)
You can use paper plates, 1 or 2 small towels, or just sock feet should work too!
NOTE: Be sure to keep your abs tight, wrists right underneath your shoulders, and body should be straight as a board (don’t let your lower back drop down!) If you feel pain in your shoulders or lower back, stop immediately!
Try doing 3 sets of 10 reps, with a 30 second to 1 minute break between sets!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
