Core Strength Workout with Alysia Montaño – Women’s Running


Your core is going to be wiped after this!

This Stir-Crazy workout challenge is all about enjoying movement no matter what might be keeping you cooped up. Every workout is designed to support your running success, focusing on run-specific movements and drills, high-rep endurance exercises, and mobility work. These particular moves are focused on building core strength, because shoring up your center is a crucial step for all runners.

Core Strength Circuits

Perform 3 to 4 rounds of each circuit, completing 12 to 16 reps of each exercise and resting for 30 seconds between rounds. Rest for 1 minute between circuits if performing them back-to-back. Resist the urge to skip your rest intervals. You’re going to need that rest to perform effective, and safe, reps. Check off both circuits by the end of the day.
