For the past few weeks, I’ve been concentrating on getting my core into shape. Your core muscles are those in your abs, glutes and lower back. Core muscles can help improve an athlete’s power, speed, endurance and stability. A strong core can even help you prevent injury!
You don’t need special DVDs or classes to get a good core work out. Basically, all you need is a small space on the floor and a few moves.
Core Workout Routines For Athletes:
My Routine: I adapted a routine I found on the blog Cook Train Eat Race. I like this routine because it is simple. It is 15 minutes, and basically consists of 4 moves, each done for 1 minute followed by a 1-minute rest interval for 3 reps. I aim to do the routine every day and I mix up the moves all the time.
What’s your favorite core work out?
