When I got up Saturday morning, I felt so much better than I did on Friday! I was a champ! I cleaned the whole house, ran errands, got my last long run in before Boston... BOO-YAH! (Does anyone say that anymore?) Anyway, thank you all for your concerns but I think I kicked whatever was trying to bring me down to the curb. I hope you're all having a great weekend! Check in tomorrow for my complete wrap up. Now, on to today's post...
Since I haven’t been lifting lower body since January, I have been doing a lot more core work than normal. I use core as a “break” between sets when I’m lifting. I’d rather go bang out some bicycle crunches instead of just sit and chill between sets of pull ups. It ends up being more core work than I need to do, but it is at least attempting to fill the void I have from no lower body lifting.
My favorite core exercises are:
2. Bicycle crunches
3. Stability Ball Pass
4. Stability Ball Knee Tuck (Which I sadly can’t do yet… my knee still feels weird in that position.)
There are a lot of exercises I do when I’m lifting that make me really feel it in my core as well. Inverted rows are killer on my core, as well as push ups. I even feel it when I’m doing pull ups!
Do you have any core exercises you absolutely love? What am I missing?
How often do core exercises?
