Say goodbye to your mid-section

Friday, September 16, 2011

For most women it is the most dreaded part of the body. It seems no matter what we do the weight collects in our mid-section. Well say goodbye to love handles and flabby abs with these six core exercises.


 1. Side V-Sit 


Do 2 sets of 10 on each side

Tip: Make sure to keep a tight core throughout the exercise 



2. Weighted Side Bend

Do 2 sets of 15 on each side 


Tip: Do this one often because it works your shoulders and arms as well as your abs



3. Dumbbell Torso Twist 

Do 2 sets of 15 on each side 


Tip: Make sure to really rotate your whole upper body while contracting your abs



4. Side Plank

Do 2 sets of 30-45 secs hold

Tip: Try doing this with your back against a wall to make sure you keep a straight back and tight core throughout the exercise



5. Bridge on Ball 

Do 2 sets of 30-45 secs hold

Tip: Keep your butt raised and contracted the whole time to see greater results



6. Plank on Ball 

Do 2 sets of 20-35 secs hold



Tip: Make sure to keep a flat back and butt 


The great thing about all these exercises is that you can do them at home. As long as you have a workout ball and a pair of dumbbells you are good to go. 


Have a great weekend!

  1. A quality elliptical trainer will include all of the extra features such as the computer generated core workout that you get with top treadmills.
