As promised, here is Day Two of your Core Conditioning program

Dear clients, friends and family,

As promised, here is Day Two of the Core Conditioning program. Hopefully, you have mastered Day One and are ready for some new exercises. Practice these and Day Three will come on Monday.

As a reminder, your core is not just your abdominal region. It includes all layers of the abdominal musculature (deep and superficial including the external/internal obliques, rectus abdominus and transverse abdominus), the muscles surrounding the spine on the posterior side of the body, the hips and glutes, and the pelvic area. So this 6 day core conditioning program will address all of these areas and include movements and exercises in a variety of planes and angles.

Remember, when you have a strong core, that strength radiates out to the rest of your body and you will move with more grace, power, efficiency and be less likely to get injured.

Day Two Exercises include:

• Bridging – variable contractile speeds
• Alternating Oblique Crunch
• Hinge Crunch
• Torso rotation knee drops side to side

Here's the video clip so you can follow along.

Here's a direct link if you can't see the video above...

Yours in health and fitness,

Sherri McMillan

ps. Practice these moves over the next few days and stay tuned for Day 3 coming on Monday.

  1. Thank you for this neat core circuit. I'm really enjoying it! However, as a bit of a side note (and I hope this is okay to say), the jumpy, bumpy camera makes it hard to watch. Other than that, it's great. :)
