S.H.E. Fit Transformation Challenge
Core Rebuild #1
Today's video will introduce you to the Core Rebuild Circuit for the next 2 weeks. Perform this circuit 3 days a week, resting a day in between workouts. You may choose to do different body weight workouts on the alternating days, but you will want to rest from intense core movements on those days. Also, it is super important that you have the strength and endurance for proper core engagement when performing other exercises. Modify as needed to protect your healing core. For the next 2 weeks, you will be performing a 5-move circuit that will strengthen and rebuild your core!
