Core Training: More than Crunches and Sit-Ups

Integrating core training fitness equipment in your routine is ideal; especially if you really want to carve abs that will make swimsuit models envious, or even will alleviate back pain. Of course you will have to develop a core training strategy that is suited to the goals you would like to achieve, and that can be best worked into your exercise routine. There is a point a which you can hit a plateau if you do not diversify your workout. This is where core training can provide diversity and build some structure to your regular cardio workout.

What is core training you ask? Core training is exercises that focus on the development of deep and superficial muscle groups that make up our trunk and torso. In essence, by strengthening your center, you stabilize and improve performance of outlying muscles in the body. Sit-ups have limited benefits, but core training can improve your body control and balance, reduce risk of injury, help with poor posture and even increase the power used by your shoulders, arms and legs.

Using Nexersys home fitness equipment can improve your abdominal core strength, but is only one piece of a well-rounded fitness routine. Fortunately, there are varieties of core training exercises that will help strengthen each part of your abdominals, as well as a host of core muscles at the same time. Whether you choose to get your core training from lunges, hip lifts or plank exercises, creatively use your home fitness equipment or dominate your living room floor; sculpted abs, good posture and reduced back pain take time and effort. Yet, the best part is that because there are so many muscle groups that make up your core, you can actually enjoy exercising and focus on real results rather than doing thousands of dreary and boring stomach crunches.

So, what are you waiting for? It is time to mix up your routine and include some core training!

"Just received the 3.2 update - outstanding!"

I really like the 3D effect for the Mitts and Sparring. Curious as to what would be involved to have the new center strike pad that is new with the N3.

"The best workout I have ever had"

I downloaded the update yesterday, let me tell you it's the best workout I have ever had. It's fun - like working out with a trainer. And the sensors are so much better, I don't have any problem with them. Thank you!

"Having the Nexersys on campus has gone over great..."

The students have seen it on TV, on YouTube and in the magazines and are ready to make it a regular part of their fitness routine. We are super happy with our Nexersys and I expect we’ll have to get another one.

"Love coming in and using the Nexersys..."

My son, Jaxon, and I love coming into the Northeast Family YMCA and using the Nexersys. I teach group fitness classes at the YMCA so it is important to me that my son stays active and leads a healthy lifestyle.

"This machine is AWESOME..."

I have trained with some of the worlds best coaches. This machine is AWESOME. I get the best of both worlds. It increases your agility, power, and cardio. The cardio segment really works the hard to reach muscles and the abdominal routine is insane. I have yet to find a better machine or exercise to do high Intensity Interval Training on. This machine is everything it says it is and more.
