Whether you like to do them before or after workouts, core sets are a great way to supplement the benefits of a traditional workout. I’ve tried countless core workouts… from my two year streak in middle school of doing 100 situps every day (I was weird. I didn’t ever miss a day. It was broken when I went to the hospital from stomach problems and couldn’t do them… haha) to more complex core sets at crew practices.
Along with many other triathletes, I like to keep core workouts as a part of my daily routine. Over the next few weeks or so, I’ll share some of my favorites with you!
This core workout is from beginnertriathlete.com. Check it out! It works all the different muscle groups, and has quite a few different parts… from traditional crutches to bridged leg lifts to heel touches. It took about 15 minutes or so.
