“Rotating Abs” Exercise = Stronger Core

Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA and Alexandra Williams, MA

Dear Fun and Fit: I tried the core assessment move in your post, ‘Do You Really Have Core Strength?‘ and flopped like a fish. Now that I’m confirmed as a fish with a weak core, do you have a post or video as to what I do next to strengthen my abs? Give up and eat mud pie?  Nora, Atlanta, GA

For you, Nora and all our interested readers, we offer another exercise in our series of effective ab workouts. This one shows the wrong and right way to perform a rotating core move.
After you try this (and watching the video while muttering, “unh hunh, I can do that exercise correctly” doesn’t count as trying), you might still have enough energy to work your way through our series of ab exercises. These ab workouts will definitely have you rotating, flexing and possibly whimpering! Dare we slam down a pun and suggest that this move will prevent you becoming an alba–core!).

Let us know – were you able to do this rotating core move without propping up on your elbow or shoulder? What bad habits do you have when it comes to core workouts?
