Core Workouts for Total Gym
Core workouts are essential when you are trying to develop not only your abs but also your oblique and lower back muscles as well. Core exercises are an important part in any well balanced fitness program. When you strengthen your abdomen, pelvis, lower back and hips you gain better physical balance and stability in your everyday life. In addition, strengthening your core will help you in all of your other physical training as well as leading to more efficient workouts. Tiffany Savion joins us on Total Gym Pulse once again to show us a great core workout that can be done on The Total Gym.
Tiffany begins the workout by getting in a side plank position. This is achieved by stacking your feet at the side and laying your elbow on the glide of The Total Gym. Hold this position for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Give yourself time when doing this exercise to build enough strength to hold your position for longer and longer each time.
Tiffany then takes the exercise a step further. By dropping her knee and bringing her arm up a little higher she then goes into the modified position of the side plank. This will work your core even more and puts you in position to do yet another exercise.
By lifting your leg straight up and down from the modified side plank position your are not only able to work your core but you are now working your glute muscles as well. You can also go forward and backward which creates a major isolation in the abdomen area. Even the shoulders are being worked when performing this highly effective core workout.
Remember, developing a strong core is a great way to improve your performance in all the physical activities of your life. Working on just your abdominal region is simply not enough. It is essential that you work all areas of your core to get maximum results.
Total Gym Pulse would like to thank Tiffany for demonstrating to us yet another highly effective workout using The Total Gym. Be sure to look out for more amazing workout tips from Tiffany coming soon!
