What is the one exercise the average American turns to when they are trying to tone their core?
Sit ups or crunches
They will do tons of them with the expectation that this will fix all their problems. These exercises are ok but they don’t work your ENTIRE core. This exercise only works one muscle: rectus abdominis; you have several muscles in your core and they include several muscles in your back, abdomen AND your upper legs. Not only this, but even with these crunches they won’t give you chiseled abs if you aren’t eating right.
So, as you can imagine, JUST doing 1000 crunches isn’t going to give you that core you want. Not only do you need to eat right, you also need to train your body as efficiently as you can. You do this by training tour body in all planes of motion in several different positions (hey, get your mind out of the gutter!)
With that being said, I have put together a 5:00 core workout which is sure to leave you exhausted and feeling good!!
