Who’s ready for a brand new core workout? That’s right….home workout posts are baaaaaccckkk and we are starting off with a challenging one that’s designed to tighten and strengthen that core.
The core is so important for everyone, but especially us moms who may have lost a lot of core strength during pregnancy. I’m here to tell you, you CAN get it back. I don’t care if you’re like me and had your last baby 9 years ago…it’s never too late to gain or regain strength.
Before we get to the workout, let’s answer some questions about core fitness.
FAQ About Core Workouts
Do core workouts build muscle?
Yep, they sure do! When you do this type of workout, you’ll be strengthening core muscles, which include your abdominal muscles, back muscles, and the muscles around the pelvis.
How often should I do a core workout?
There isn’t a hard and fast answer that applies to everyone here, as every body is different. To get results, however, it’s best to aim for 2-3 core workouts a week. These can be shorter workouts that are added to your regular routine. This Quick Ab Workout is one that I add to my workouts often! Sometimes core work is a part of a broader workout, like with this Bosu Ball Workout.
How long should a core workout be?
If you’re doing an isolated workout, they don’t need to be long. 15 minutes is plenty of time to put in the necessary work to strengthen your core muscles. This particular core workout is just under 30 minutes.
