FUNCTIONAL CORE WORKOUT WITH ALEXA TOWERSEY

Alexa Towersey, our February Fitness Expert has a WEALTH of knowledge and experience in fitness and training for all people. This week we’re taking you through a FUNCTIONAL CORE WORKOUT.

The purpose of this week’s FUNCTIONAL CORE WORKOUT…

The core includes the pelvic girdle, both the deep and superficial abdominals, obliques and lower back. This is a fullbody core workout that encourages maintenance of neutral spine whilst the arms and legs are moving, in addition to engaging the stabilizers of the shoulders.  I find that training core this way encourages a “flat tummy” by focusing on drawing the bellybutton to the spine throughout.  Maintaining neutral spine is also important for everyday life, making this a “functional” circuit.

Watch both the below videos to understand the importance of and how to effectively switch on your core and ensure you are functioning in your everyday movements at your absolute best.
