Core Strength Home Workout – 5 effective exercises
The Core Strength Home Workout training method
Before we explain the 5 effective static core strengthening exercises we would like to explain two different methods which you can do during a calisthenics home workout. The first one is Circuit Training. This training method focusses on your endurance by doing several exercises in one sequence. The second one is Sets & Reps. This training method focusses on doing your maximum amount of reps or seconds for each exercise.
During this Core Strength Home Workout, we focus on the second training method. The benefit of this training method is progressive overload. Progressive overload means that you try to do more reps or more seconds than you did the previous workout. The best way to do this is by keeping track of your workouts in a logbook. This is in our opinion the best way to increase your core strength! That’s why we have included logbooks in each home workout Plan that we offer.
An important rule to mention is that we never do a static exercise longer than 2 minutes. Can you hold an exercise longer? Then you need to add some weight. For these core strength exercises, you can often use ankle weights. The reason that we do not hold an exercise longer than 2 minutes is because you will work on endurance instead of strength. Good Luck with this Core Strength Home Workout!
