My waist/belly gets better and better each week.
I have almost reach 6 weeks of 10 min weighted hula hoop each day, plus I have also done core workout with different
core exercises almost everyday, so I combine hula hoop with core workouts.
I do different kind of core exercises,and I have done them with my body weight only because I had to start from how strong my core was ( I was pretty weak,but I am gaining strength each week )
So yesterday’s core workout was with weights, at least the first two,and I am going to share it with you here:
* Weighted front squat 2 sets of 10-12 reps
The front squat, My focus was not on my quads, My focus was to engage my belly,back and glutes(core) during the intire movement, It was really hard and I could really feel how my core was working and it felt amazing.
I trained until my core could not engage as much anymore,and then took a break until my next set.
* Weighted reverse bottom lunges 2 sets of 10-12 reps/each
Focusing on my core all the time and not the legs,because I use this exercise as a core exercise and not a leg exercise this time, really contracting my abs,back and glutes.
Bottom lunges, you are doing a reverse lunge with alternating legs,but you don’t come up all the way,you are staying above parallel all the time when you switch legs
* Superman planks body weight 2 sets of 12
This last exercise, I did not needed any weights, It was tough anyway.
