VSX Sport Presents the Sexiest Workout Ever: Core
Warm up - Do a 2 minute warm up like jumping jacks, then do 3-5 mins of another exercise such as skip rope (to mix this up, use weights instead of a rope and just jump up and down in place).
Aerotwist - Standing with feet wide apart, twist arms using the core muscles from side to side, keeping it controlled. After one round of this for 60 seconds, do the same thing but tilted to the right for 60 seconds. Tilt back to the left for the final round of 60 seconds.
Basic Plank - Simply hold the plank position for 60 seconds.
Around the world plank - In the plank position, with arms out straight, lift one limb up for a few seconds, then gently lower back down. Repeat for all limbs (including both arms and legs).
Aerobliques - In a position similar to the side plank, have one arm across the chest, with the other on the ground for support. Lift up the upper body and legs as much as possible using the core muscles, keeping everything controlled and tight.
Basic Crunches - Lying down on the floor with hands under your butt, do some basic crunches, keeping everything controlled.
Russian Twists - In a seated position, using a medicine ball if available (or otherwise some kind of weight) twist from side to side. (NB: in the video these are called Seated Twists with a Medicine Ball).
Stretch/cool down – Don’t forget to stretch out those sore core muscles!
Watch the video HERE (it includes the warm up and cool down stretches). This workout should, including warm up and cool down, take around half an hour. Enjoy!
