Working your core in different ways is key to hitting all the different muscles and one way we often neglect, but works instantly is BALANCE. Not only will it force you to tighten your core right away, but improve your running.
Abs and Legs Workout
Do core 2-3 times per week
12 -15 reps on each side x 2
Lunge to Lift
Feet hip width apart, lunge to the right and reach left hand to toe. Tighten your core and transfer weight to the left foot, raise left arm to the side and right knee in front. (Add a light weight for more strength!)
Step left leg behind right with arms overhead side crunch to the right. Stabilize your core and lift left leg up and out to the side then bend to left.
Lunge with Rotation
Step forward with right leg and rotate left elbow towards right knee. Rotate back to facing forward and step back to standing.
Now repeat on the other side!
How often do you work your core?
