Most women don many hats in a day, that of an employee, a mother, a wife and many more. Core exercises help women have enough strength and energy to last them the whole day. And then some.

 

Core strengthening exercises focus on building and toning back, stomach,chest, butt and upper thigh muscles. By gaining better balance and stability, you will be expending lesser energy and doing all physical activities more efficiently. Want a core workout that works? Here are 7:

Plank

Lie flat on your tummy and keep your hands beneath your shoulders.

Go into the pre push-up position by lifting yourself up, while keeping your back straight.

Hold for as long as you can.


Kettlebell twist

Bend your knees, keep your legs together and sit on the floor.

With your elbows bent, hold a kettlebell ahead of you.

Lift your feet off the floor till your knees are at chest level.

Twist to any one side till your elbow touches the floor. Hold then repeat on the other side.

Lie face-up with your arms and legs in a relaxed position.

Tighten your abs, and elevate your legs to 45-degrees.

Raise your shoulders off the floor and try and touch your shins with your fingertips.

Hold for as long as you can.

Plank circle

Get into the plank position mentioned earlier.

Using your hands as pivots, walk your feet around in a circle.

One rep = one revolution both clockwise and anti-clockwise.


Rope climb crunch

Lie face-up, bend your knees and firmly plant your feet on the floor.

Visualize a rope tethered from the ceiling and dropping right on your chest.

Take your head and shoulders off the floor and reach up with your hands and climb the ‘rope’ in a twisting motion.


Tolasana on brick

Sitting on a yoga mat, bend your knees and cross your ankles.

Place each palm on a brick on either side of your hips. Your fingers must point outward.

Straighten arms, exhale, tighten abs and lift your legs and butt off the mat.

Hold for as long as you can. Then lower back to starting position.
