Stott Pilates Instructor TrainingHere are not only the best, but the most eye-opening core exercises. Adding these to your workouts will not only help you get better results, but will also help you realize more about your body. The mere act of trying these exercises can exploit weakness that you may have.

Single Arm Single Leg Row

You may be familiar with squats and rows; however, this unique combination of the two is rare to see. You can use a cable system or a band for this exercise so it’s easy to do at home or at the gym.

Single Leg Medicine Ball Chop

Balancing on one leg while moving resistance through patterns is very effective in making people activate their core. It becomes evident that you’ll be unable to maintain balance without correct core engagement.

High Plank Knees to Elbow

A plank can be taken to the next level easily when you add a dynamic movement. Traditionally speaking, a plank is done on your elbows.This core exercise takes that to the next level.

Supine Hip Extensions

Here’s an exercise that will not only fire your core, but activate your hip flexors as well.

Dead Bugs

The stability ball is under-utilized. You don’t always have to sit or lay on it for exercises. It’s not heavy but the size and elasticity of the ball allow for many variations of focused core exercises.

Try adding these in the next time you workout. Even if you aren’t planning on a core specific routine you can still use these exercises as a warm-up.
