GO Green Fit: Core Work

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 12.42.47 PM 2

In this Instagram video, our reliable crossfit trainer combines a trio of exercises with the aim of seriously working your core. Core work is a very important part of fitness that some people tend to look over in between cardio and typical weight exercises. Our trainer performs Russian twists with a medicine ball, some toes-to-bars, and then a wall sit. The real kicker, though, is that during the wall sit, he is also tossing a medicine ball with a partner.

Combining the wall sit with a medicine ball toss is a great idea. Wall sits put the burn in your legs super quickly and test their strength continuously and consistently. Adding the medicine ball though adds some strain to your arms, creating a fun and strenuous exercise that covers a lot of muscles. The trainer also gives us a tip: keep your back straight while against the wall and tossing the ball. This could take some practice, not moving your back while still throwing a heavy object. But practice makes perfect, and core work makes abs. You do that math.
