Welcome to everyone participating in the Summer Slay!! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and doing this workout with me. I am so excited you are here! If you don’t know what the Summer Slay is, it’s 4 weeks of workouts and recipes from my girl Les over at The Balanced Berry. It’s totally free! This workout is part of week 4, but it is not too late to join. You can also do this workout even if you aren’t participating in the Summer Slay. All are welcome! Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this awesomeness.
I am particularly excited about this full body workout because it is to the beat of the music. It’s SO MUCH fun! It’s one of my favorite ways to workout because you get lost in the music and just have fun! In the video, you will see me jam out a bit. Feel free to sing along or head bob, it’s just what happens when you are having fun during a workout!
Do the workout with me in the video below!! For your convenience, the workout and playlist are all included below the video.
Today I have a quick, 10 minute workout that is going to work your abs and your entire core without having to do a single sit up!! The best part, you only have to get on the floor for ONE of the exercises! This workout is quick, effective and suitable for all fitness levels.
I have created this workout specifically to work all your core muscles instead of just isolating the abdominals. A strong core is important for so many reasons: avoiding injury, reducing or eliminating lower back pain & strain and proper alignment in daily activities to name a few. Did you know that your core is more than just your abdominal muscles?? Your glutes and lower back muscles are part of the core too.
All of the exercises today are compound exercises, meaning they work more than one muscle at a time. You can do this workout anywhere! Get ready to sweat and improve core strength in just 10 minutes!
10 Minute Core Workout
Optional Equipment: Dumbbell, Yoga Mat
Standing Oblique Crunch
Single Knee Crunch
Bridge with Marching

Do each exercise for 1 minute. The exercises where you must switch sides (every one except #3) switch sides after 30 seconds. Once you complete the 4 exercises, take a 30 second break. Repeat 2 times.
