CORE and More

Happy Hump Day!

As a trainer, it's easy to say that the "Core" is the focus for many men and women during workouts. And although we can't "spot" train one area of the body to specifically get rid of fat... I do think you should constantly work to engage your core during exercise. Our core is the center of our body, that aids in balance and strength in most daily activities. 

 I thought I'd put together a core workout that not only targets some of the main core muscles (abdominals and lower back), but also exercises that greatly utilize the core to keep your body stable (Burpees, Mountain Climbers, etc). These exercise are so key because they are quick, higher intensity exercises that utilize majority of muscles in your body, while burning a higher number of calories...
