10 Non Ab Moves to Train your Core 

Your core goes way beyond just your abs. Check out these 10 full body core exercises to get your core working for you. 

Gone are the days when 100’s of crunches and holding plank for hours was THE best way to train your core.

Thank goodness. Phew, our aching backs. 

Nowadays we hear all about “the core” but do we really know what that’s really referring to? Is it just the abdominal muscles? And what about the pelvic floor?

 The core is actually a team of muscles that all work together to provide support for your body when we do virtually ANY movement in our daily life. Everything from picking up grocery bags to reaching for that hidden bag of chips on the top shelf is a “core exercise.”

We love sharing full body exercises with our #MamaReset squad that help train this deep system of muscles. 

Prioritizing large muscle movements like squats and lunges instead of crunches and sit-ups is not only more effective, it’s more efficient.  Working your glutes while working your abdominals? Yes please! Strengthening your upper back while working your pelvic floor? Two for one!

The updated core training. 

Here are 10 of our favourite “total body” moves which are actually awesome core exercises! 

Save this cheat sheet to your phone and give these 10 non-ab-exercises a try, to get those core muscles working for you. No spine-crunching sit-ups required!

You can stop googling “core workouts.”
