Hey  Friends,

Today I want to stress the importance of targeting your entire core (middle) area and not just your abs. How many of you have done crunches until you are blue in the face without much benefit? Crunches only target one area of your stomach and aren’t as effective when done alone.

Training for a strong core has many benefits for any kind of  fitness or weight loss goal.  The reason is because it is where the body’s center of gravity is located. When your core is strong you develop better posture, you have more control over your movements, you have better balance, you can protect your back and hips from injury, the list goes on.

Some exercises that are great for developing a strong muscles are PLANKS. There are endless ways to modify planks. Try the exercises in this video with you regular cardio workout today and let me know how you do.
