Core Construction:Tone Your Tummy

Hi Everyone,

Tonight's workout is focused on increasing core strength. That means all of the abdominal muscles, and the muscles of the back. 

Keeping your core strong helps support your posture, and gives you a strong base of support for everything you do. Plus, who doesn't like having nice abs? 

Earlier today I did an interval workout on the treadmill. I alternated walking, running, sprinting, and inclines. The entire treadmill workout took me 30 minutes, and I completed 3.63 miles in that time. 

I hope that you all have a great night!

PS I also posted a recipe for a Low Calorie Pumpkin Latte with Chocolate Whipped Cream so check that out! It's delicious. :)

Beginner: 10 reps
Intermediate: 15 reps
Advanced: 20 reps

Repeat 1-2X

1. Mountain Climbers

  1. I really like the comments from the voice behind the camera. It's great for comic relief and keeping the workout interesting lol. The dynamic between the two of you is adorable.
    I would also like to suggest to add a quick abdominal stretch at the end of the workout, as it is very important to stretch and most people don't know what kind of stretches will target their abs.
    I love the workout though!

    1. You're right, even though they hadn't taken into account this suggestion.

  2. Hi, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it is really informative. I'll be careful in Brussels. I will be grateful if you continue this in future. Many people will be benefited from your writing.
