Core Workouts For Women – 2 of the Best Core Strengthening Exercises!

In this article, I’m going to profile some of the absolute best core exercises for women but before I get into it, I feel as though I should take a minute to clarify some things. By reading this article, I think it’s pretty safe to assume that you’re looking to strengthen and tone up your midsection a bit. The core-specific exercises that will be profiled are great for developing functional strength but in order to flatten your stomach and get that desired “six pack” look, you need to obtain a very low body fat percentage.

In order to do that, you have to create a calorie deficit. Basically, what that means is that you have to burn more calories then you ingest. This is accomplished by watching what you eat (obviously) and by training hard in the gym. With regards to “watching what you eat”, you want to be consuming frequent, nutrient dense portions of food throughout the day.

Focus on consuming protein, low glycemic carbs, unsaturated fats and of course, drink plenty of water throughout the day. As for the workouts, you want to be performing the exercises that utilize the most energy (calories) to perform. These are usually movements like squats, lunges, pull ups, push ups – basically the exercises that train multiple large muscle groups at once are best. As for the actual core-specific exercises, let’s get into them now, shall we?

Core Workouts For Women

Medicine Ball Abs Blaster: I’ve spent about 10 years working as a personal trainer in various gyms and when I get cancellations, rather then going all the way home and returning for my next client, I’ll just stick around. To kill time, I usually play around and try to come up with new exercises to incorporate into the routines that I design for my clients. Well, one afternoon I discovered what I now refer to as the “medicine ball abs blaster”. This is without a doubt the best abdominal exercise I have ever performed and my clients all feel the same way.

Standing Olympic Bar Twists: This is also a great, yet rather unorthodox exercise that tones and strengthens the entire core. It implements that “core rotation” movement that we use so frequently in our day to day lives, which makes this exercise extremely functional. You don’t see many people performing this exercise simply because they don’t know about it. Consider yourself let in on an awesome secret.

Home Abdominal Workout

Home Fitness Workouts

Working out at home is often a popular option. It could be because a person wants to save money or finds it more convenient to work at home. There are many other ideas that lead to home fitness workouts being popular. Often it is just because it works.

Usually all that is needed is a DVD with a workout routine on it. The instructor provides all the information needed to allow the participant to understand the proper routine. They put in the DVD and do the exercises then they are done. Some might want to do the program daily as they usually last half others and other only do the program a few times a week. It is recommended to exercise at least three times a week and to have a few days of rest. This will allow the exercise produce results. As long as the exerciser does the exercises correctly they will get results as they keep up with the program.

There are so many home fitness workout types that everyone is sure to find a program they enjoy. If they enjoy it they will continue it. Some even decide to try a few different programs until they find their fit. There are dance aerobics, yoga, cardio and many others.

The freedom of home fitness workouts also help people keep up with the program. They can do the workout whenever they want and they get to choose what program to use. If they want to change it one day they can do so without having to ask anyone what they think. They just need to work core muscle groups and keep up with the program. If they want to use equipment, such as the treadmill or to go for a run instead of the DVD that is always an option because they are in charge of their fitness routine.
