Isometric core workout | 10 minutes at home
Isometrics is simply a term for a muscle holding its contraction and is neither lengthening or shortening.
I love changing my training up and incorporate isometrics into nearly every movement in some form from hip thrusts to chest press to shoulder press! This video is based on same technique and applied to core exercises.
The hold of each exercise is performed for 20 seconds, then 10 seconds to get into position for next hold. One round will bring you up to 10 minutes in total.
The exercises are as follows:
3. Toe reach
4. V sit
6. On forearms leg lower
9. Side plank
10. Side plank
11. Top position of push-up
12. Bottom position of push-up
13. Long lever plank
15. Single leg plank
16. Single leg plank
17. Mountain climber
18. Mountain climber
20. Bear crawl hold
Remember to relax your breathe when holding the contraction and only do to your ability. For any hold involving leg lower, simply do not lower as much and perform lower push up on knees if needed.
I hope you give this a go! 10 minutes and your core will be strengthened that little bit more!
