Cardio Core Workout

The cardio core workout includes fat burning intervals and challenging core exercises that build a strong core and sculpt flat sexy abs.

Start with 4 minutes of easy cycling to warm-up. Continue with 4 minutes of tabata protocol then recover with 5 minutes of moderate paced cycling.

Stretch your hip flexors and quads for 2 minutes then continue with the ab circuit.

Perform 10-20 reps of each low back and core exercises. Rest 10-15 seconds between sets.

Focus more on good form and less on number of reps performed. What matters most with core exercises is quality and not quantity.
