You enjoy working your core, right?

Who doesn't!  I average about 35 training sessions per week, including small group classes that have 7 clients each, and it's one of, if not the most, in demand types of workouts.

I'm no different.  The abs are always one of the main areas of my body I like to work, but I do it a bit differently than you may be accustomed to.

What do I mean?

Well, I use a huge mixture of abs exercises when designing my workouts. 

I use a mixture of isolation exercises, which are used sparingly or only when I want to remain active, yet let the rest of my body rest, and I use A LOT of full-body abs exercises like Burpees, Swings - either with a Kettlebell or Dumbbell - Push-ups (all varieties), ropes, sledge hammers, carpet sliders, sand bags, Power Wheels, and other bodyweight exercises like Mountain Climbers.

See what I mean?  That's the best way to work your core and abs, but I have a couple other tips for you that I'd like to share in a quick video.

Quick and Simple Core and Abs Workout Tips

Make sense?

Before I sign off after giving you those quick and simple core workout tips, I'd like to give you a few ways to incorporate more abs work into your overall workout program.

One of my favorite ways is by utilizing what are called 'Add-On' workouts.

What that means is you do your normal 10-minute weight loss workout, but do a quick 4-5 minute abs workout circuit immediately after your 10-minute workout.

The cool thing about that is that it doesn't have to be done to get results.  If you don't have time, then don't do the add-on.  However, if you can spare an extra 5-minutes, and who can't, then it increases the intensity and effectiveness of the workout on your core.

Another option you have is to do a 4-5 minute add-on Abs Workout before AND after your normal 10-minute workout.

That's a special kind of awesome that really boosts the intensity of the workout on your abs.

My favorite way is to do either stability/endurance core exercises OR big, ful-body abs exercises before the workout and then do isolation movements for the add-on workout after.

Here's one I put a client through yesterday...

Pre-Workout Abs Circuit:

1A) KB Swing - 20 reps

1B) Plank Walkout - 5 reps

We did as many circuits of those two core exercises possible in 5 minutes, then proceeded on with a 10-minute weight loss circuit.

After that, we finished up with the following

Post-Workout Abs Workout:

2A) Butt Raise - 10 reps

2B) Jack Knife - 15 reps

Again, we did as many circuits of that possible in 5-minutes.

Once that was up, he was done and I kicked him out of the studio because he was moaning and groaning about his abs hurting so much.  I kid...his session was up anyway and my next client was there :)

So do you think you can throw those quick and simple core and abs workout tips into your own workout program?
