12 Easy Core Strength Exercises to do at Home!


It’s Dr. J and today I want to talk about
core strength. There is a common misconception about core strength. Many people think it’s
all about abdominals. Abdominals are a very important component however you need to have
a good pelvic and back strength to go along with the abdominals. So today I’ll show you
some alternating exercises that help strengthen the abs, pelvic and back muscles. Let’s go! In this video I have displayed 12 different
exercises. As far as incorporating these exercises into your routine to increase your core strength
what I recommend is for you to choose two or three of each abdominal and back strengthening
exercises and then alternate those 2 to 3 times per week in your workouts. For instance
on day one you could do the Supermans followed up with the classic crunch. Then you could
do the swimmer. Follow that up with the obliques to the left and to the right and so on. This
way you are working the abdominals and the back in a one to one ratio. A key point to
keep in mind when you’re doing abdominal exercises is to try and activate the core before you
go into the abdominal contraction. To do that just place your hand on your belly button
and try and bring your belly button down towards your spine. Once you get the feel for that
when you go to do an abdominal exercise try to activate that abdominal core first and
then go into your abdominal exercise. As you can see as well I have been progressing the
difficulty level as the exercises are going up in number. So as you can see here the finisher
is a lot more difficult than the classic crunch. As well the plank walk is a challenging one.
So that way you’ve got many options. Just choose what works best for you. You should
increase that core strength. Good luck!

  1. Very helpful video. I am 12 and want to get a six pack but I'm worried that me being really skinny will hold me back. Is it still possible for me even if I am really skinny?

  2. Thank you for the video and hope you getting better from the injury.
    If I follow the video, how many time for each movement?
