How to Strengthen Your Core

Published:

In this video, Dr. Chelsea explains how to strengthen your core with the 5 best core workout exercises with Dr. Josh Axe.

He demonstrates the workouts using the Tabata method of exercise, which is 30 seconds of high-intensity work with a 10 second break.

If you’re looking to get those flat abs and tight, defined core, this is one of the best “Burst” workouts you can do! If you’re a beginner, you can start with 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off, then try working your way up to a true Tabata style of 30 or even 40 seconds on and 10 seconds of rest.

Here are the core exercises:
1.) V-ups
2.) Plank
3.) Bicycles
4.) Side Plank
5.) Suitcases
