1 Minute Core Workout

1 Minute Core Workout

If you want to know the future of fitness, it’s getting in shorter “micro” workouts throughout your day. Sure, you can still do longer sessions if you have the time, but those will become the exceptions rather than the rule. Working shorter workouts into your daily routine helps solve the number one reason people give for not exercising, lack of time.

What you have to realize is that short workouts work. They matter. Science tells us so.

The secret to getting results from these shorter sessions is simple: You just need to do them consistently. Whenever, wherever you can.

This is especially true when it comes to working your core. Spending too much time trying to sculpt your stomach takes time away from doing other important components of your overall plan, including cardiovascular exercise and strengthening your total body.

Yes, even one minute makes a difference. Here is a 60-second stomach-sculpting session to get you started!

Are you ready?

We're gonna start with regular crunches. 20 seconds worth.

Ready and begin.

So small range of motion, really engaging those abdominals and from here we're gonna transition right into a double crunch.
