Core Envy Sculpting Exercise: Hip Bridges

Today's featured Core Envy sculpting exercise: Hip Bridges. I love this exercise because it works the gluteals and the muscles on the back side of the core while being easy on the knees. It's quite common to feel the quadriceps attempting to do all the work during this movement, so try to focus on releasing the quads and forcing the glutes and hamstrings to fire.

Core Envy Sculpting Exercise: Sliding Series

Today's featured Core Envy sculpting exercise: Sliding Series. Learning to stabilize the torso while moving your limbs is an essential part of functional core strength. This exercise keeps the body stable while the upper arms slide (or tap) forward and back.

Core Envy Sculpting Exercise: Single-Leg Kicks

Today's featured Core Envy sculpting exercise: Single-Leg Kicks. This is a hip extension exercise that works the gluteal muscles as well as the deep stabilizers of the hips. In this series, we will also challenge the deep abdominal muscles by moving the upper body into different positions. Focus on tall posture as you do this exercise. It's a good idea to have a chair or table nearby in case you need a little extra support or help with balance.
