Getting to the Heart of Core Training with Mandy Gill
The second week back to school for kids is when the fitness industry sees the biggest influx of parents realizing it’s time to get back to their own priorities of health; yes, even more so than New Years!
With a majority of people getting back to jobs where sitting is part of their daily routine, it’s important to highlight the fact that core muscles are key to focus on in every workout. What does working on your core result in? Sculpted abs, a stronger back, a natural bum lift, and increased stabilization for everyday activities!
This takes more than a few crunches, let’s dive in!
Areas for Mandy to mention:
*helps prevent injuries. Back pain is a common side effect of a weak core. When our abdominals are weak, it’s often because our back muscles are overly strong.
*It’s important to build core stability first, and then build core strength. You want to get the deeper muscles working first, then everything else will fit into place on top of it.
*Mind to Muscle
*If your core is strong, you’ll be certain to carry yourself with confidence
Workout Focus: Controlled, smooth movements. A little goes a long way! (5lbs on each side is plenty)
• Overhead Press (advanced: Squat with Overhead Press)
• Walking Lunge (advanced: Walking Lunges with Overhead Press)
