Looking to strengthen your core? Of course you are. This 10 Minute Strong Core Workout will work your core and it only takes 10 minutes to do it!
Over the past few months, I’ve shared a workout for the lower body, for the upper body, and now it is time for the CORE! I am always trying to strengthen my core, not just because it makes me a better runner, but having a strong core can help me through so many other workouts too.
My brother and I were talking about our cores one day and laughed about how once you start regularly working on your core, you realized just how much you use your core. Like, when you are in a car and take a sudden stop and keep your body back — don’t you feel your core working? Or is that just me?
Or the day after a core workout and you “try” to get out of bed and you come to realize getting out of bed is going to be pretty darn difficult.
If you are on the look out for a quick workout that will work your core, I’ve got you covered right here. This 10 minute Strong Core Workout will work your whole core and none of the moves are complicated. Try it out!
This core workout is the perfect routine to do post run, post HIIT, or after any cardio. With your body already warmed up, this core workout will strengthen your core and is perfect paired up with an upper body workout or a lower body workout too! The options are endless.
Complete each move for 30 seconds and complete each set twice through before moving to the next set.
Each set will take 2 minutes, for a total of a 10 minute workout.
