Exercises To Help Strengthen And Tone Your Core


In this episode we are diving into a great discussion with Meredith about some helpful exercises you can try to help strengthen and tone your core.

We get a lot of questions about what to do to get a stronger and more toned mid section or core. This consists not only of your abs but obliques and lower back. All working together to help stabilize you in everyday activities and not just exercising.

In This Episode You Will Learn:

1). Why having a strong core is so important especially as we age and why it’s we should always include strengthening and toning core exercises regularly.

2). Why many core exercises don’t have to be done laying down and some of the examples Meredith shares from her online catalog of exercise videos.

3). Why it’s important to know that just because you may not be able to see your core muscles, that they aren’t strong or toned. There are many factors that go into building a strong core.

4). Some real world core exercises you can try in your weekly workouts to get you started or some possible new ideas to try to mix up your own core routines.


5). How social media, TV and print images have affected our idea of what we think a strong core should look like and why this shouldn’t be used as a standard for you. Everyone is different and building your own body/core should be the focus instead of comparing ourselves to others.
