Looking for a core workouts at home? Find the best fitness exercises here - get your free fitness training app. Perform three days a week with one day of rest between workouts (i.e. Monday, Wednesday, Friday). For optimal results each exercise should challenge your muscles. However, you first should start with lighter weights till you properly learn each movement pattern. Once mastered, select the amount of weight that causes you to fatigue during the specified reps below. For example, if an exercise calls for 12 reps your goal it to find a weight that causes you to fatigue during the 12th rep in proper form. As you get stronger you should increase the weight for the best outcome. Choose five of your favorite exercises from the list below and perform two rounds of the recommended number of reps for each. If you're not sure where to begin, try the five starred exercises that our resident trainer Danny recommends (plank, side plank with rotation, deadbug, bicycle crunch and leg lifts). If you're a total beginner, start by incorporating these new moves into your workout routine at least once a week. Increase the frequency at your own pace until you're strong enough to do them three times a week. Use proper form. Take time to learn how to properly perform each exercise. Lifting weights effectively requires you to move through the entire range of motion without pain. The better your form, the less likely you are to injure yourself. If you can't maintain good form, reduce the weight or the number of repetitions. Remember that proper form is important even when picking up weights or returning them to the rack. If you're unsure whether you're performing an exercise correctly, seek advice from a personal trainer or other fitness professional. Please consult with a doctor before starting any workout or fitness program. This is especially important if you haven't exercised in a long time, if you have any health concerns, if you're pregnant, or if you're an older adult. Please speak with your doctor to determine the amount of exercise that is appropriate for you.
