Build a Strong Core While Sitting

 

Having a strong core is vital to moving well, performing your best and staying injury free.  But sometimes doing crunches, planks, supermans, bridges and other popular "core exercises" just isn't an option.  Sometimes you may want or need something different.

In those situations Chair Fit Yoga for Strong Abs is a perfect solution.   In this article we share with you five of our favorite chair core exercises.

What you'll need

A flat, stable chair without arms. A dining room or kitchen chair works well – avoid chairs with wheels because they aren't stable and can roll out from under you.

When to exercise

You can do this routine whenever you want to tone and tighten your midsection or need some help supporting your lower back.  Speak with your doctor before starting a new exercise routine, especially if you've had a recent injury or chronic health condition.

How to perform the exercises

Check your posture before beginning. Make sure your upper body is in good alignment with shoulders back and down, spine lengthened, and chin slid back so that the ears are directly over the shoulders.
