The 5 BEST ‘Core-Killer’ Exercises


The “sit-up” has been an exercise go-to since the 1940s. The exercise recommended by late night TV commercials, magazines and fitness gurus at the gym.

But REAL fitness and training professionals threw sit-ups and crunches into the trash years ago, knowing the dangers and how ineffective they are for developing the core. And some have even taken it a step further and have eliminated MOVEMENT in order to safely target the core.

The sad fact is that for a while now, most people have been misled by “experts” giving outdated advice on how to train your core and develop your six-pack.

Many of their lies are THE REASON you’ve been let down in the past. You may have heard, or perhaps even believed at one point, that doing certain exercises like the sit-up, or having to use excessive core movement is the ONLY way to get the abs you want.

If you continue to train your ‘core’ with these dangerous exercises and possibly harmful movements you’ll cause serious – possibly irreversible – damage to your spine. You’ll end up with chronic pain in your back, neck and knees as a result….

And the worst part is that you may even end up losing muscle, losing performance and gaining weight as your body fights against poor posture and being out of alignment.

Listen: this isn’t what we want for you. And I know it’s not what you want for yourself. Take Coach Brian’s expertise and use these isometric exercises to transform your core and finally get the results you’ve always wanted, a STRONG, SLIM, SEXY core while having a pain-free lower back.

Here are the 15 Must-Do Isometric Core Exercises:

1. Hollow hold
2. V sit
3. Unilateral Loaded V-Sit
4. Dead bug
5. Leg lift hold
6. Elbow plank

Why are most exercises done on the floor? I can't get down on the floor because I can't get up. Maybe if I lose 100 more pounds I can but not currently. If exercises can't be done standing or sitting in a solid chair they aren't worth doing IMO.

Lyndon Britt says:

Amazing, I was in a place and couldn't listen to the video. Are you doing all of the positions in one workout for a certain number of seconds or picking a few for each workout?

Natinat says:

Great video but next time could you use a human being to demonstrate the exercices ? Dont get me wrong, this sculpted statue is gorgeous but i think it would be more realistic with a real human who breathes, wobbles and sweats like all humans. Thank you.
