Weekend Workout – Planks Are So Much More Than Just a Piece of Wood

Yes, all those ab exercises, along with proper nutrition, can help develop that always enticing 6-pack. But a strong, stable core has more benefits than just aesthetics. According to an article from active.com, your core creates  “a solid base for your body, allowing you to stay upright and stand strong on your two feet.”

That’s why this weekend workout is full of core strengthening exercises. I recommend performing five 10 rep supersets of these exercises with at least 60 seconds of rest in between sets. Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Strengthening Your Core Should Be A Primary Concern

The primary mover is the muscle or muscles generating the majority of the “force” during a particular exercise. For example, during a bench press, the pectorals are the primary movers. During a curl, the biceps are the primary movers and in the weekend workout below, the muscle groups that make up your core are the primary movers.

Performing five, 10 rep supersets of this workout will help strengthen all the muscles in your core, not just your 6-pack (rectus abdominis). Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.

Weekend Workout – Yooooouuuu, Your Core Will Be On FIRE

I’m bringing you another core centric superset workout this week. For those that need a refresher on supersets, they require you to perform a desired number of repetitions for 3 separate exercises in succession. As if core exercises weren’t challenging enough, these exercises will all be executed from the plank position. That means you’ll need to utilize much more than core muscles to complete the workout.

Performing five 10 rep supersets of this workout will help improve strength in your ENTIRE core, not just your 6-pack (rectus abdominis). Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level.
