Ab Workout Standing Up

Your core does a lot for you, even if you don’t realize it!

It is essentially like a tree trunk that stands strong while keeping everything inside protected.

This ab workout can be done standing up and trust me, it’s harder than it looks.

This will challenge your balance and coordination!

Remember, if your back starts to hurt during this, there’s a chance you’re not using your core!

I made that mistake for many years and likely I put an end to bad form before it was too late.

Please take the time to learn how to contract your abs and use them for what they’re meant for!

Pull that belly button towards your spine!

Sounds too bizarre?

Pretend like you just got punched in the stomach! That’s how tight everything should be.

Also, never hold your breath. Learn to keep your core engaged, while breathing properly!

Alright, let’s do this!
