If you are serious about getting a strong core with kick-butt abs, then this Core and Balance Serious Strength workout is your new challenge! Throw away everything you’ve done in your traditional core workouts like crunches or sit-ups and pick up those heavy weights! This core muscle workout uses dumbbells for an instability challenge that creates muscle contractions in your mid-section you’ve likely never felt before! Our trainer Leah Zahner does a fantastic job of challenging you to new and creative ideas, but gives you tons of options to modify in case some of the moves are too much for you to start. In addition, trainers Chris Freytag and Lindsey Bomgren take part in this core muscle workout and give some great modifications to give you options. As part of our Serious Strength Program series, this workout is all about being smart by using heavy weights to get to your goals! Don’t be afraid of picking up those weights!
In this awesome core muscle workout you’ll try things like balancing planks, bentover moves with one heavy weight, and bear crawls to name a few. Every move is designed to make you focus and concentrate on your core muscles like you’ve never done before. Traditional sit ups and crunches can be great for strengthening abs, but the use of the heavy weights and balance in this core muscle workout provide unique challenges and things that will truly work your ENTIRE core. Another benefit of attaining such a strong core is the amazing strength you will build for your back. Back pain affects nearly 80% of the U.S. population. Instead of waiting for that day to come to you, get ahead of the pain and strengthen your core for low back protection. Join us for this Core and Balance Serious Strength workout and find your abs again!
