3 Workouts from Tia-Clair Toomey to Build a Strong Core and Six Pack Abs

A strong core is essential for posture, health and almost every exercise you will ever perform in Crossfit. Strengthen yours with these workouts.

CORE WORKOUTย 1

Every 90 sec, 4 rounds:

  • 6 Around the world with plate above head (15kg, 3ea)
  • 20 Russian Twists and then hold the Hollow Rock position for 20-30sec
  • *Goal is to maximise the amount of time spent in the hollow rock position

CORE WORKOUT 2ย 

  • 8 Fast V-Ups
  • 15 Tuck Crunches
  • 30 sec Hollow Rocks
  • 30 sec Superman
  • Then Rest 1 min into Max Bridge Hold.
  • *be sure to use the rest between the crunches and hollow rocks because those 30secs get really hard.

CORE WORKOUT 3

  • Accumulate 6mins of the following in 8mins;
  • 2min Plank hold
  • 2min Side Plank (each side, total 4mins)
  • *I tried to challenge myself by adding weight and doing it on the boxes but for beginners this can be performed on the ground.

I had a lot of positive feedback from my last core exercise โ€˜6 Pack Attackโ€™ with @jasonkhalipa from earlier in the month. So here is another core workout I did today as an accessory. Accumulate 6mins of the following in 8mins; -2min Plank hold -2min Side Plank (each side, total 4mins) *I tried to challenge myself by adding weight and doing it on the boxes but for beginners this can be performed on the ground. (It was tough to keep the hips up ๐Ÿ˜œ) You donโ€™t have to be a Crossfitter to do it, so tag your friends and family and donโ€™t forget to tell me how you go. ๐Ÿ˜Š #absofsteel #healthyliving #lookgoodfeelgood #bebetterthanyesterday #wellbeing #fitness #toneup #flatstomach #strongcore @reebokau

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
