7 Answers | Asked by Sergio Armenta on Nov 02, 2011

Answered by Marlan Eller on Nov 03, 2011

What is your favorite core exercise?

28 Answers | Asked by Monica Foster on Nov 01, 2011

Answered by Marlan Eller on Nov 02, 2011

Golf is a good one! Planks work for endurance. My favorite exercise building core endurance is the kettlebell swing! Fun to do, gets your heart rate up, forces you to use pretty much all of your core muscles to stabilize the movement, and it's a great exercise for your posterior chain as well.
