Welcome to your 10-Minute Feel Your Core Workout, where you are going to do exactly that—feel your core! Throughout this 10-minute core workout, trainer Tish will have you feeling the burn as you work through exercises to strengthen your core. As always, we will start with a total-body warm-up to get the entire body ready to work, and Tish will explain what the workout will look like. There will be two circuits within this 10-minute ab workout. The first circuit consists of 30 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of rest. You will do this block of work a total of two times through. The second block will be for form and speed since you know what the work looks like and what exercises come next. The second circuit will 20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. You will repeat this circuit a total of two times as well—just enough time to transition and catch your breath between each movement. Are you ready?

You’ll need a towel and a light to medium dumbbell for this core workout. The towel will be used as a prop throughout this workout. And as always, you have the option to choose a light, medium, or heavy dumbbell for this core burnout! We will incorporate ab movements that will tone all muscles of the core, including the obliques, the rectus abdominus, and the transverse abdominus. Starting with seated walkovers, you’ll use the weight to keep your legs up off the ground while rolled back into a seated core hold. Tish will provide lots of encouragement, motivation, and of course modifications to guide you through this fun and uplifting core workout.

Next, we will hit a wide-leg crunch using those “low abs” to pull your legs out and back into your chest. This is where you are going to want to grab your towel. In the “pass the towel” exercise, we will pass the towel between our feet and hands, incorporating the upper portion of the core for this movement. Modifications will be given and instructed by Tish throughout this movement. Find the variation that works best for you. And of course if you don’t have a towel, just pretend! Our workout will finish with a focus on the side obliques, Russian twists, and plank weight drags.

    I am very interested and motivated in joining this program. I am currently injured and unable to workout for two weeks. Can you send me information about enrolling on Dec 28th, if there are programs for seniors and if there is support for nutrition/weight loss? Thank you !
