There’s nothing like having a strong core!
A fully activated core will help you maintain a tall and strong posture and most importantly, it will get rid of back pain. A strong core will also help you with every exercise you do. Before we get into our 4 Top Ab Moves, I need you guys to take a quick core test.
- First! How long can you hold a plank for with perfect form?
- How many shoulder taps can you do in one minute? Max effort! No break for 60 seconds.
- How many sit-up variations can you do?
Here’s a video of me explaining each movement and showing you how to position your body in a way that will burn the most and activate your stomach muscles.
Congrats! Now that you know what phase you’re in, we can get to work. If you felt the burn in your stomach during the assessment, you’re ready to go. If you felt any of these exercises in your lower back, you need to perfect your form and strengthen your stomach muscles so that they can take over the movement. Keep practicing! Keep your core tight and pulled in. The difference in your core will be amazing if you stick with it. To me, core training is one of the most important parts of any program.
Perfect the core test and make your way into Phase C. By Phase C, your stomach will be able to handle my Four Top Ab moves.
Here is a video of the circuit:
Hope you guys continue!
