strong back and core workout #purelyfitlife 14

by purelytwins

It’s Move-it-Monday friends!

Work your abs, obliques and back with this core and back strength training workout. Ladies, get fit at home and get a toned, sculpted and slim belly and back with this workout.

You have seen us talk about our poor posture before, plus getting a strong back is what started our #PFChallenge this month. So this workout goes hand and hand with our goals —>improve posture, get a strong back, and keep strengthening our core.


If you think about it, your back and core connect your lower and upper body. So makes sense to improve them, right?

Improving core strength will allow you to lift more weight in many other exercises that you would want to do because a strong core will help you stabilize the rest of your body.

Another benefit of having a strong core  is reducing the risk of injury, including the very common back pain.

Having good posture lessens wear and tear on the spine and allows you to breathe deeply, which is very important for all parts of life!

Plus having a strong back and core help with balance, something we struggle with as seen here.

Here is the workout breakdown:

We suggest:

  • A-fits (advanced peeps) : use weights that challenge you – try to do 8-10 lbs (or more)
  • B-fits (beginner peeps): use a little weight. Slowly increase the weights from 3 -5 -8 lbs. For the balance part, you can stand on both feet but try single leg every once and awhile. And for the push-up you can do them on your knees.

Now do the workout with us in real time!

I love core work, mainly because I have a herniated disk in my back and building a strong core has given me the ability to enjoy life, continue to run and wake up without a ton of pain (don’t get me wrong, it still hurts but loads better than before I started strength training).

Love the exercises…. Russian twists are one of my favs!
