From improving your posture to helping you lift that large box of FabFitFun Add-Ons you forgot you ordered, having a strong core is vital for health and happiness. Here’s how you can improve your strength and flexibility in just 12 minutes using the GAIAM Ultimate Core Toning Kit.

Before beginning your workout, make sure to warm up for 3-5 minutes. Perform each move for 45 seconds, then rest for 15 seconds. Repeat the series three times.

Using the Mini Ab Ball

Back Extension

Position the ball on the back of your neck with your elbows on the floor. Slowly lift your chest off the floor while squeezing your shoulder blades together and hold for 1-2 seconds.

Full Roll Up

Position the ball between both knees and make sure your feet are flat on the floor hip-width apart. Extend your arms above your head, squeeze the ball, and slowly curl upward, lifting your upper body completely off the floor. Hold for 1-2 seconds and slowly return to the first position.

Using the CorePlus Reformer

Bicep Curl

Place one flexed foot in each cord and grasp the cords with your fingers facing towards you. Sitting up tall, glue your elbows to your sides, then lean back slightly forming a “C” shape with your core. Pull the cords in toward your shoulders and resist it back down toward your thighs.

Rowing Series

Place one flexed foot in each cord and grasp the cords with your knuckles facing in towards each other and elbows lifted at chest level. Lean back slightly forming a “C” shape with your core. Maintaining control, lean back, and inhale as you pull the cords in toward your chest. On your exhale return to your starting position.
