Core Workout

Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone knows of a good core workout online video, like you tube or exercise tv, etc.? Without paddling my core has become, well...not so great and the yoga videos I have been watching aren't quite cutting it. Anyone have a good way of keeping their core in shape during the off season?

Try a Pilates class. It's a great workout and focuses on the core and flexibility.

There is a Ab workout on YouTube Called Six Minute Abs if you do it twice a day it will get you going in the right direction.

I sometimes do "Ab Ripper X," a less than 15 minute routine as part of P90X.

11 exercises, roughly 25 reps each.

Even at my strongest I've never been able to complete it, so I try to shoot for 15-20 reps which gives me an extra few seconds to rest between each exercise.

You can find it on youtube..

Try it out!

Get a Bosu ball. There are all kinds of core exercises you can do with it.

Thanks for all the ideas. I will definitely be checking out those you tube videos In the mean time I've had time to step up the intensity of my trail runs, thats been helping. Good advice, Danger.

1 exercise

Just do the plank for as long as you can everyday. Your abs, back. Then do the same thing on one arm on each side. Let me know when you hit 30 mins in those 3 positions
