Core ChallengeHow strong is your core? Did you know that strong core muscles make it easier to do most physical activities? While core exercises are known to help tone our abs they can also help us improve our balance and stability. After dealing with a frozen shoulder and and undergoing a shoulder manipulation I was unable to do many of the core exercises, so during that time I lost a lot of core strength. As a result, when I was able to return to normal exercising I found that I had lost a lot of balance and stability...and felt like I was tumbling every time I tried a balance move. Fortunately, as I've started building my core strength back up I'm regaining my balance and stability.

Andy Speer, C.S.C.S., owner of Soho Strength Lab, in Manhattan says, “A strong core will both allow you to transfer power more efficiently throughout your body and enhance your stability, boosting overall strength.” So, if you're ready to take the "Killer Core" challenge, click on the link below to find out how to incorporate the following three-move circuit to challenge and strengthen your core: Hollow rock, plank side pulse, superman.
