In just a half hour, the hardCORE workout class will help you improve your posture, strengthen your muscles, and work on your abs.

A Core Workout is More than just Killer Abs

When people think of ab workouts, they often believe the only options include crunches and planks. A hardCORE core workout is much more than just abdominal muscle training. When instructors were creating the core workout program, they were thinking about how to get the most results in the shortest amount of time. As a result, exercises that help your posture and strengthen your muscles are included within the exercise program.

The Best Workouts for your Core

One of the best exercises for your core is the reverse crunch. This core workout consists of you laying with your back on the ground, arms by your side, bringing legs up into your chest with your knees bent. It’s literally the reverse of the typical crunches exercise.  

Another great workout for your core is arm and leg raises. This particular exercise consists of you lying on your belly, with your hands above your head, lifting your right arm and left leg or vice versa simultaneously. By doing these correctly, you can experience tightening in your abdominal muscles.

A unique workout that engages your body well is the bicycle core workout. This core workout consist of lying on your back, placing your hands on the back of your head to prop yourself up, bringing your knees up and rotating them as if you were cycling on a bike, lifting your chest and shoulders off the floor, and turning your elbow into the opposite knee to flow with the cycle motion. If done correctly, this bicycle core workout can truely benefit your abs.
