Core Exercises

Building a strong core is like building a strong foundation for a house. It’s important to have a solid base to withstand the stress of movement and exercise. Below are our top three core exercises to start developing a stable core:

Pelvic Tilt

Start by lying on your back with knees bend, and feet flat on the floor. Tuck your hips under if tucking your tail to flatten your back on the table. Hold 5 second, then relax.

Lie on your back with your arms up in the air. Bring your legs into the air with knees bent to 90 degrees. Extend alternate arm and leg away from you, without letting your back arch. Alternate sides 20x.

Plank (knees or toes)

Start on your stomach. Place forearms vertically under you with wrists under shoulders. Push up to knees or toes, keeping abdominal tight as if pulling on a tight pair of pants. Keep a neutral spine by not letting you head or stomach droop. Maintain 20sec-1min.
