Certified fitness trainer and health coach Katie Austin is our go-to resource for all things wellness around here. So, when the SI Swimsuit model published a quick core workout to her YouTube channel earlier this week, we immediately grabbed a yoga mat and got to work.
Austin’s new at-home workout allows users to work their core from just about anywhere, so whether you’re in the living room or on the go, the set offers a quick and effective routine.
“In these moves, you’re really going to hit that [transverse abdominis muscle], you’re going to feel great,” Austin explained of the deep core moves. “I love doing a lot of these moves because they don’t look very challenging if you’re not doing them, but if you’re doing them, you’re really feeling this.”
She advised users to focus on their breathing throughout the workout and to perform each move slowly in order for it to be most effective.
The seven-minute sequence included the following exercises, which Austin instructed performing consecutively for 35 seconds with a 15-second rest in between.
Reverse crunch to alternating single leg lower
Full body suitcase crunch
Hover plan knee taps
Bear plank (with three-second hold)
