Four Moves to a Stronger Core

If you suffer from low back pain, chances are your core is weak. A strong set of Abs aren’t just there to “look good”, they actually play an important role in spinal stability and will help you squat, deadlift, hip thrust, lunge and overhead press heavier and safely. Strong abs are a MUST if you want to take your training to the next level.

Here are four exercises I frequently program to target the midsection:

1. Garhammers
2. Decline Leg Raises
3. Bicycles – 3 slow, 3 fast
4. Rolling Plank

Mix up your rep ranges between 10-25 reps, 3-4 sets and don’t be afraid to train abs frequently. I like to include 2-3 of these exercises at the end of an upper, lower or full body workout.

Happy training!
