Follow my blog with Bloglovin FITNESS FRIDAY: Ab & Core Workout -

Hi all, its that time again, yes it is Fitness Friday. Today’s topic hits home with so many of us women and moms. After having a baby or simply as we women get older, our core seems to be one of those areas we struggle with. For me, this is an area, along with my butt and thighs, that I train the most. In fact, experts say you can actually train your core every day as long as there is no medical reason not to. So let’s get to it. Add this simple core workout to your weekly workouts, your morning or bedtime routine. It only takes approx 10 minutes, so no excuses.

In addition to the below workout, be sure to eat a healthy low-fat diet, get at least 30 min of cardio in 4-5 days per week and drink plenty of water. The combination will give you results. I do these exercises every week at least 4-5 times on top of my other workouts. They are easy to fit in before you take a shower in the morning or even before you go to bed if you don’t have time during your daily workout.

Below is a list of 10 core exercises. Pick 6-8 of them each workout and do each for 30-45 seconds each 2-3x. Mix and match to get a full core workout. Consult with a doctor or health professional before starting any new workout.
