Not long ago I got a question from a reader asking about my suggestions for core workouts and if I had any workouts to share. That’s when it hit me. I have shared only a handful of core workouts for Move It Monday workouts. How can that be? We’ll pretend it’s not because I lack on the direct core work. I guess I normally feel like I get a decent core challenge within my workout –whether it be all the “chatarunga”ing in yoga or doing compound exercises in my strength workouts. That doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be room for a solid core workout in my routine…or yours. So let’s all commit to tackling those abs today with this short and sweet little workout I created for you.

Definitely one of those love to hate moves, huh?

it is a running NOTSOFUNNYjoke here my core is so … not taut.
I need someone to move in with me and lovingly poke and nag me.

WHat?! we’ve all seen those photos, your core is solid!

Seriously! Miz, you have one super strong looking core!

Love this! I used to incorporate it about twice a week, but I have been really lacking in it. I need to step up my game!

This looks awesome! Aside from V-ups, not a fan! But maybe I’ll like oblique v-ups better. ;)

I personally like oblique v-ups better…but they’re still one of those love to hate moves!

Great information. Thanks for sharing. I also love core work.

Love! Always feel like I’m walking taller all day after a good core workout. I did core + upper body this morning, but I will definitely be using this Thursday when I do core after my cardio!

15 Laura @ Mommy Run Fast November 19, 2013 at 7:31 pm

I love new core routines! Thanks, Tina!!

I actually like doing core work, but I just had a baby 6 weeks ago & I’m finding core work is a lot more difficult postpartum! I like incorporating planks into my exercise routines or doing a quick ab circuit after cardio.

Good Routine. i prefer Oblique V-ups but one should try toe taps.
