The core muscles are the most important muscles in the body for movement.
Not only do strong core muscles look good but they connect the top half of the body to the bottom half.
A good well-functioning core means more power, a well-protected spine and a tight midsection.
You don’t need all the latest gadgets and gizmos to exercise your core muscles just some sensible and scientific bodyweight exercises.
One of my fav exercises: Dirty Bugs
A great exercise for challenging pelvic stability. This simple movement is very challenging and will definitely cause you to actually think while doing it. It is so easy to not do it right but with the video of me showing you, you got this!
The pelvis is kept in position by your core muscles so the harder the pelvis has to resist movement the harder the core has to work.

- Lie on your back with hands and feet in the air.
- Maintaining the small of your back on the floor lower your opposite arm and leg to the ground.
- Return to the start position and repeat.
Coach Fatimat’s Note: If the back cannot maintain constant contact with the ground then the exercise it too difficult. You can then bend the knees instead of keeping them straight.
