Core Circuit Workout


Fit Friday is here! I hope you didn't think I would leave you hanging two Fridays in a row. Of course not! I'm back and feeling good after my workout yesterday. So great that I am feeling the burn like whoa today. Looks like a week off from strength training took its toll. I also realized that my body was seriously missing the strength training. Even though I'm super sore, I feel so much better. I think my body is trying to tell me something...keep exercising!

Anyhoo, these are some of my favorite core exercises, one of which I was introduced to last night! I've included links and descriptions below for any that you might now recognize or know. If you have any other questions feel free to leave a comment!

Let me know what you think of this circuit! I really do love to hear from readers. Happy Friday!

*Plank Toe Touches: Start in a plank position, with feet together. Move your right leg to the side to touch right toes to side, and then bring it back to center. Do the same with your left side, alternating sides for the full 30 seconds. This video shows a variation but the same form (I don't use the stability ball).

  1. Core training exercises don’t have to be done at the gym. Just using your own body-weight is a great place to start with core training, but you can easily find inexpensive equipment to enhance your core workout.
