Thanks! Share it with your friends!


*This SEATED Core Routine COULD be the most effective (and fastest) core workout you’ll ever do. And the best part about is that it’s for everyone!*

FREE 5 Minute Core Workout:


When most people go to execute their “core strength workouts”, they tend to focus on nothing more than the all too common movements of simple crunches and leg raises. While many exercises do have their place in a complete core routine, the truth is that your core actually extends way beyond these surface level muscles.

If you really want to improve core strength as effectively as possible, some of the best exercises you can include in your program are seated movements. These exercises are some of the very best core strengthening exercises out there since it trains your core muscles based on their true function, which is to act as a stabilizing center while protecting the spine.

In this video, core and bodyweight training expert Meredith Shirk of Svelte Training takes you through a 3 minute seated core routine that is suitable for all levels.

For the past decade, Meredith has been passionate about achieving peak performance. Her keen self-awareness and innate understanding of human interactions has helped her clients gain confidence in their professional, personal and athletic careers.
On the business front, Meredith has consulted for major fitness brands and is currently developing a line of health food products.

For this amazing routine, it’s important to have proper technique and form is very simple. Just listen to her verbal cues while paying attention to her demonstration. These are simple but can be performed incorrectly if not careful.

Do these 6 movements for :30 seconds at a time and then repeat it for an additional 1 or 2 more sets. These 6 movements are adequate enough to really see great improvements in your core.

1. Side to Side Reach
2. Seated Jacks
3. Climbers
4. Toe Touches
5. Knee Ups
6. Front reach
