Add These Simple Core Workouts to Your Fitness Regime

I have been really concentrating on my abs recently, below are a few moves I highly recommend you weave into your regular fitness routine to get the strong core you are looking for. 

Side Plank Rotations: Start out in traditional plank position. Slowly twist your body to one side until you’re in a side plank position extend your arm upward, then with controlled movement return back to starting position to complete one rep. Do this for 15-20 on each side.

Knee to Elbow Sit Ups: While laying flat on the floor with your hands behind your head (make sure not to tug on your neck) slowly bring your opposite armpit to your opposite knee while raising your shoulders off the floor and keeping your lower back sealed on the floor. That makes one rep, perform the same action on the opposite side.  Do this for 3 sets of 25 reps. 

Flutter Kicks: Start by laying supine on the floor.  Keep your arms straight by your side and keep your legs straight.  While engaging your stomach, slowly bring your legs off the floor and flutter your legs as though you were swimming. Make sure the small of your back is pressed firmly on the floor. Perform this action for as long as you can, rest for 30 seconds and repeat for 3 reps.
