What would you recommend for core exercises

Recommended Posts

My core strength is very low. I've looked up core exercises and am overwhelmed looking at crunches, planks, back extensions etc. I don't know what is best for me. What I need is some suggestions for exercises that I could start out with. I will be only doing 5 min. of core work a day at first. I have a floor:D, and an exercise ball (a big one that you can sit on). I have fibromyalgia and adrenal problems if that makes any difference (it may not). I currently walk 2 miles a day and do 20 min. of gardening rain or shine.

The Core Program is an inexpensive and gentle program. I've fallen off the wagon (once again), but when I'm consistent about doing it I can tell a difference in how I feel.




I recommend this book as well: The Core Program, by Peggy Brill, a physical therapist who specializes in core exercises for women of all ages. The exercises are easy to learn, and once you learn them, the whole program only takes 15 minutes a day. I feel SO GOOD after doing them! There are three levels of exercises, so you can make it as gentle as you need.
