6 'hard core' Swiss Ball exercises!
The ‘core’ for us mummy’s ( that's roughly lower and upper abdominals, obliques, pelvic floor, lower back and glute muscles etc ) will be forever be a work in progress, especially after having children. But that’s the case with anything if we want to improve and maintain muscles in good form right? Picking up children, bending up and down, kids swinging off arms and jumping on our backs.. you name it, as parents we can be literal human jungle-gyms most days. I have to keep working on my core or I am prone to putting my back out. So for me, core workouts are a necessity to function normally as my boys grow.
You might have a swiss ball lying around the house? My swiss ball was a real hit with my two. This is a simple, quick but effective core workout. Be warned though, a usual 15min session might take a bit longer given there is all sorts of fun to be had with a swiss ball when there’s kids around!
3 sets ( usually ) takes about 15mins to complete. 1min rest between each set.
30 sec leg lifts
( focus on keeping your core tight, slowly lower up and down, almost touching the ground )
30 sec ball crunches
30 sec lower back extension
30 sec ab pike press
30 sec roller abs
30 sec arm and leg lift
I’d love to hear how you went completing this workout? Please comment below?
