Fit Life with Stephen Cabral

You’ve seen some of my ab and core workouts in the past, but wait until you check out the moves I have for you today!

I’ve taken core training to the next level in this advanced workout.

We’re going to trim, tone, and tighten every inch of your waist line and core through 4 fantastic movements. Each move is specifically chosen to work the entire core without having to do a single crunch or sit up.

Plus, as you now know traditional crunches aren’t going to get you the tight stomach you’re looking for… and may even lead to lower back problems.

Now let’s move on to the movements that make up this great workout and how you add them into your own exercise sessions.

Here is the Advanced Core Exercise Workout I shot a couple of years back inside my private training studio in Boston:

1A. Combat Twists - 20-30 reps
1B. Ball Pikes " 20-30 reps
1C. Dumbbell Axe Chops - 2x15 reps
1D. Mountain Climbers " 30 seconds (60+ reps)

Try to complete the above advanced core exercises as a circuit workout without any rest in between exercises (except for the transition).

Rest 60-90 seconds between sets (rounds).

Also, aim to complete 1-2 sets the first time you try this workout before progressing to 3-4 rounds during your peak training weeks. This will allow your nervous system and muscles to begin to adapt to the new exercises safely and naturally.

Keep in mind that this is an advanced core exercise workout so you shouldn’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t complete the rep range that is listed above… take your time and progress up to those numbers and when you do you’ll know your abs, obliques, lower back, and entire core have gotten a lot stronger and tighter!

Enjoy the advanced core exercise workout and check out the video below to see a demonstration of all the moves:

Also, if you haven't seen this 7 minute video on "The Secret to Losing 5 Pounds in Less than 7 Days" naturally check out this eye-opening video below:
