Strong to the Core!

Okay so heres the skinny, we've put together 3 great core exercises to get you started:

Here at PepTalk we love a bit of core work. While they say abs are made in the kitchen, equally a bit of work on the floor definitely helps too!

"Start with 10 repetitions of each exercise and repeat twice"

The Bicycle

  1. Lie down with knees bent and hands behind the head.
  2. With the knees in toward the chest, bring the right elbow towards the left knee as the right leg straightens.
  3. Continue alternating sides (like you’re pedaling!).

Flutter Kicks

  1. Start lying on your back with arms at your sides and palms facing down.
  2. With legs extended, lift the heels off the floor (about six inches).
  3. Make quick, small up-and-down pulses with the legs, while keeping the core engaged.
  4. Try to keep kicking’ it for a minute straight!
