5 best core fitness exercises

  • The bridge

    : Lie down on the floor with your knees bent. Lift your butt up until your body is in a straight incline position. Hold the position for 30 seconds and lower back down.
  • Plank

    : Get into a push-up position with your weight resting on your elbows and toes. Hold this position for a count of 10 while ensuring that your body is straight from head to toe. You should also keep your abdominal muscles tightened.
  • Quadruped

    : Get down on your fours. Slowly while trying to keep your balance, lift up your right hand and your left leg. Lower them down while you inhale. Do the same with your left hand and right leg. Perform this exercise as many times as you can.
  • Pilates 100

    : While lying on the floor, lift your legs up towards the ceiling. Afterwards, lower them to a 45 degree angle and lift your shoulders and head off the floor to engage the core. Now, rapidly start moving your hands up and down until you reach the count of 100.
  • Swiss ball crunches

    : Lie on a fitness ball while making sure that your legs are firmly pressed on the floor. With your hands behind the head, lift up your shoulders and head to contract the core. Hold the position for 2 seconds and return to start position. Repeat as many times as your body can manage.
    The Expert’s Thought: Core fitness exercises are exercises that work your abdominal, lower back, hips and pelvis muscles. These muscles support your spine and keep your body stable.
