BEGINNER CORE WORKOUT 1
The core consists of all the muscles around your midsection with the primary muscles being the rectus abdominus (abs), obliques and erector spinae (low back). These muscles play a vital role in spine stabilization, balance and coordination—all of which are important in day-to-day activities. A strong core can also reduce lower back pain, improve sports performance, and improve posture.
The core muscles act as the connecting component between your upper and lower body. Many of the exercises found in the intermediate and advanced workouts require a smooth transfer of energy and motion between the upper and lower body through the core muscles. Therefore, your improvement and progression with your fitness program is directly related to core muscle foundation you create.
The Beginner Core Workout 1 is designed to build a foundation and strengthen your core through a series of basic exercises. Each series is comprised of a variety of sets done in succession with a break following series. Start with a number of sets and reps that you can perform with good form and technique. Keep a detailed log of your workout and include how many sets and reps you completed. When you revisit the workout, you can refer back to your notes and try to beat your previous workout.
Prior to progressing to the intermediate core circuits, you should be able to complete the entire beginner core circuits to completion with good form and technique.
