Core Circuit on Stability Ball
I love this workout for those days after I've done a full body strength workout or when I feel the need to really center myself and focus on my core. And since this circuit is all about core and a touch of legs, but in a lengthening-strengthing kind of way, it's also a good one to do after a cardio/aerobic exercise.
Why is focusing on CORE so important? Wellllll, if you haven't heard, your core is the midsection of your body supporting all other muscles and the movements you make. Whether you're working out, standing, sitting, carrying bags or picking up kids, your core is the center of all.
It's the foundation of so many other physically necessary movements you make each day. Funny how our foundation is right in the MIDDLE of our bodies, isn't it? But, once you've got a strong foundation everything else feels more supported and stronger. Kind of like in life: When we have a solid foundation (for me, it's my faith!), everything else seems to fall into place. Even if it does take a little extra struggle or training to get there, a strong foundation makes for more purposeful living (and, in your core's case, moving).
So, what are you waiting for? Work your body's CORE FOUNDATION and while you're at it, remember to ground yourself in a firm foundation in your other areas of life, too. Let's get started!
