Fun one-minute core exercises that work

Are you bored with the same old core exercises? Don’t have time to add more sets and repetitions but want better results?

Core exercise is one of those things that you just can’t skip out on. So, if you’re begrudging them or finding your routine stale, here’s a fun solution…

But before you attempt to do any of these you do want to be sure that you’ve got a good core foundation already. If you’re unsure, watch the video through to the end (it’s barely a minute long), then go through the movements slowly if you need to get familiar with them. You’ll want to have already mastered these moves, so that when you string together for a quickie, their effective.

Once you’ve done that, adding a little choreography to your core workout can add challenge without adding time to your workout. Choosing moves that involve both upper body and lower body alternately make your core work a bit harder to stabilize. This kind of sequence will help your daily activities of life and you sports and leisure activities easier too.

Click start to get going. Add some music so you keep the beat and enjoy it that much more!

  • Tap opposite shoulders 4x
  • Lower to forearms and press back up
  • Double knee to opposite elbow
  • Tap foot to the side 2x each right and left leg

Make up your own sequence with movements you already use.  Trade dozens of repeats of the same move for a few and then add another move.
