10 minute core workout

The 10-minute workout: Pick 4 exercises and do 3 sets of each: 20 seconds on/ 20 seconds off. Then do 3 sets of back extensions. Make sure you include each muscle set ( Lower Abdomnials, Obliques, and Upper Abdominals) at least once.

For all:

  • Go slow and steady

  • Stuck in your gut. (tighten up the muscles like you are trying to pull your belly button in)

  • Watch your back you are working your core not your back if you are feeling your back too much you are doing it wrong.
