Here’s a total core workout to start your weekend off right!

Workout Instructions: Set your timer, try each exercise for 30 seconds (or 60 seconds! WORK UP TO IT!????) back to back, rest a minute then repeat the circuit 3-5 times!

Exercise 1: Toe Tap Crunch

  • Lie on your back on the floor.
  • Point your legs and arms to the ceiling
  • Lift your shoulders towards the ceiling and try touching your toes
  • Ease back down slowly as you inhale.

Exercise 2: Slow Bicycle

  • Lie down on the ground. Stretch your legs out straight while keeping your feet together. Make sure your lower back is pressed flat against the floor. Put your hands beside your head.
  • To begin the exercise start mimicking bicycle pedaling motion.
  • Bring your right knee towards your head as you rotate your upper body. Try to touch your left elbow to your right knee.
  • Then straighten your right leg back as you bring your left knee in. Simultaneously rotate your upper body to the opposite side. Try to touch your right elbow to your left knee.
  • Don’t rest your feet and shoulder blades on the ground. Once you lift your heels and shoulders off the ground you never put them back throughout the whole exercise. Keep them a few inches above the floor.

Exercise 3: SLOW leg drops

  • Lie down and raise your feet together up in the air and bring it down. Don’t bend or separate your legs. This will complete one rep.
  • Do it for 45 seconds before you can rest.

Exercise 4: Shoulder Tap Plank

  • Begin in a plank position.
  • Lift one hand off the ground to tap opposite shoulder. Switch hands.
  • Keep hips and shoulders square to the ground and avoid lifting hips to keep your torso still.

    Hi! Just wondering if you can show me some ab workouts that don’t hurt my back. I have three herniated discs, and stenosis. Flexion and added stress on my lumbar spine is dangerous. I understand that making your back strong is by making your core strong but a lot of the ab exercises are a no no for me to do. Can you show me some exercises for me?

    Thanks

      Hi Sonal,

      I would love to provide you some workouts. However, given the issues you are experiencing with your back. I would recommend speaking with your doctor or a physical therapist about the types of abdomonal exercises you can do.
