Are you looking for a powerful workout that will transform your abs, strengthen your body, and leave you feeling great? Then this Pilates core workout is for you! These mindful, Pilates-inspired movements will help you engage more core muscles than with just plain old crunches. Mix up your routine with this Pilates core workout. It will challenge you with targeted moves designed to create real core strength and leaner, flatter abs.

Chris will guide you through each move in this Pilates core workout. You will work your whole core including your abs and back muscles. To better understand your abs: you have your rectus abdominus, which is the vertical crunching muscle. Then there’s the transverse abdominus, which wraps horizontally around your body like a belt and acts like a human girdle. It keeps your low abs intact, protecting your low back. This is the area most people forget to focus on and coincidentally, it’s the area most of us want to transform. You also have obliques, which are your twisting muscles, and they’ll also get a workout in this Pilates core workout.

You’ll start with moves like “rolling like a ball”, which will help you stabilize through your core and also acts as a balancing move. Next, we’re onto Pilates 100s—a killer ab exercise that truly engages your whole core. Chris will provide plenty of modification and encouragement throughout the workout to make sure you get the most of every move. You’ll also perform moves like bicycle crunches, total body roll-ups, and swimming—all designed to engage more of your core muscles than typical crunches.

If you have 10 minutes, you have enough time to build core strength and transform your abs—making them leaner, stronger, and more defined. This Pilates core workout is fun and will have you feeling the burn. If you like this workout, try this core Pilates workout or find additional strength training exercises on Get Healthy U TV!
