Strengthen Your Core with These 4 Exercises, in the comfort of your own home

A strong core is vital for overall health. It impacts your posture, and balance, and is vital if you want to improve your overall training form.

For those unable to hit the gym, maintaining a strong core and abs at home, may not seem possible, but that is not the case. Here are four effective exercises that you can do to help you achieve a strong core and abs in the comfort of your own home.

Grounded Russian Twists: Once you’ve mastered the basics of this exercise, you’ll be able to engage your core at various intensity levels.

Start with your heels on the ground, twisting back and forth from your left and then to your right side. As it becomes easier, lift your heels or add resistance or some weight for an added challenge. Why not try our Aquacore at home, for an added stability challenge. The water-filled Aquacore allows you to control the weight resistance, by adding as much water as you feel comfortable with , to intensify your workout.

Leg Raises: These are perfect for engaging your core and can even be done lying on your bed. This simple yet effective exercise can be adapted to your fitness level.

Lie flat on your back and then lower your legs towards the ground and raise them back up to a 90-degree angle. Remember to slow down to maintain control. As the exercise gets easier, you can gradually challenge yourself by slowing down even further as you raise or lower your legs to intensify your core engagement.

Crunches: Executing crunches with proper form can yield significant benefits for your core. Keep your feet flat on the floor, lift your chest while maintaining control, and emphasize a slow and steady pace. To increase the intensity you can incorporate weight or some of our resistance bands. By securing a band to a stable object behind you, you create an additional challenge for your core as you lift and lower your body.

Planks: Round off your complete core workout by ending off with a plank. Make sure that you maintain a straight line from your head to your heels and challenge yourself by timing each session and attempting to beat your previous time. Whether performed on your elbows or hands, planks are versatile, allowing you to customise the level of difficulty you want.

Incorporating these four core exercises into your home workout routine can yield significant improvements your overall health and wellbeing.
