The best back and core workout is one that improves posture and upper body strength, burns fat, flattens the belly, sculpts a toned upper body, and builds the type of core stability and mobility that prevents injuries.
Below is an example of a great back and core workout that does all that and more. It combines 4 fun suspension trainer exercises into a circuit and includes a standard set of pushups.
It's perfect for anybody who wants flat abs, toned arms, better posture, more upper body strength and better core stability for sports or every day activities.
The suspended scorpion is probably the hardest of all the exercises. Be sure to modify and try it with less range of motion to start if this is a weak area for you. Even just extending the leg back and practicing holding a single leg plank works well if you're just getting started with this exercise.
Back & Core Workout Instructions:
Perform 30 seconds of each suspension trainer exercise making sure to hit each side for 30 seconds. Go from one exercise to the next without rest. It helps if you program a second 5 sec. transition interval into your Gymboss. After one full circuit rest for 1 minute then repeat 3-4 times. Advanced aim for 4-5 total circuits. Intermediates try for 3-4 and beginners start with 2 working up to 3.
Continue with 5 sets of 5 pushups resting one minute between sets. Finish up with 5-10 minutes of upper body stretches.
