A strong core is necessary for general strength, stability, and posture. Here are some of the best workouts for building a strong core:

Plank:

The plank is a well-known core-strengthening exercise. Begin in a push-up stance, forearms on the ground, and body in a straight line from head to heels. Engage your core muscles and hold the posture as long as possible while keeping perfect form.

Russian Twists:

Sit on the ground with your knees bent and your feet elevated slightly off the floor for Russian Twists. Lean gently back, maintaining your back straight. Hold a weight or a medicine ball in your hands and rotate your torso to touch one side of the weight to the ground, then the other.

Leg Raises:

Lie on your back and straighten your legs. Lift your legs off the ground while maintaining your core engaged and your legs together. Lower them slowly without letting them contact the ground, then raise them again.

Bicycle crunches:

Lie on your back, hands behind your head, knees elevated. Bring one knee up to your chest while twisting your torso to bring the opposing elbow up to the lifted knee. In a pedaling action, alternate sides.

Hanging Leg Raises:

With your arms outstretched, hang from a pull-up bar. By clenching your lower abdominal muscles, raise your legs straight up in front of you. Controllably lower them back down.

Mountain Climbers:

Begin in a plank posture and raise one knee to your chest while extending the other leg. Maintain a solid plank stance while fast alternating legs in a running motion.

Dead Bug:

Lie on your back with your arms outstretched and your legs bent at 90 degrees. Return to the beginning position and switch sides by lowering one arm and the opposing leg towards the ground without allowing them to contact.

Medicine Ball Slams:

Hold a medicine ball over your head and crash it down to the ground with power, working your core in the process. Repeat the movement with the ball.

Pall of the Press:

Stand perpendicular to a sturdy anchor with a resistance band attached. Hold the band at chest height with both hands and stretch your arms straight in front of you. As you draw your hands back towards your chest, resist the pull of the band.

Rollouts with a Stability Ball:

Begin in a kneeling position with your hands on a stability ball. Maintain a straight line from your legs to your head as you roll the ball forward. Roll it as far as you can control it, then bring it back in with your core.
