KYLE'S ULTIMATE CORE WORKOUT

This no-kit workout not only trains your core for improved stability and functional strength that will improve performance in all sports and physical activities.

Your challenge is simple: complete the workout! Aim to complete three rounds, but stop as soon as you are no longer able to complete the exercises with proper form. This is what's called a giant set circuit, which means you do all the exercises in each circuit with no rest between each exercise.

Circuit A

A1 - Basic crunch x12

A2 - Leg raise x12

A3 - Side plank reach x12

A4 - High plank x12

Rest for 30 seconds, repeat, and then rest for another 30 seconds and move onto Circuit B.

Circuit B

B1 - Hollow rock x15

B2 - Bicycle crunch x12 (each side)

B3 - Side plank rotation x12 (each side)

B4 - Low plank - 45secs

Rest for 30 seconds, repeat, and that's one round! Don't forget to use #UnityChallenge to let us know how you get on!
