Core exercises help better your posture, improve balance, and increase stability. Overall, they help make everyday life easier while reducing pain and preventing injury. In this premium video, Leah Zahner, Certified Personal Trainer (NASM), ups the degree of difficulty by adding a slider into your core exercise routine. You can find sliders for less than $15.

Step 1

Utilizing one slider, get onto all fours and bring your hands onto the slider, side by side.

Step 2

Visualize reaching your body forward, then, allow your body to follow it.

This will create momentum to start your core engagement and begin to push the slider out away from your body.

Squeeze your core and pull the slider back into the starting position. This is where the bulk of the strengthening occurs. This is an advanced core exercise. Pay attention to your range of motion and do not overextend or go too fast.

Do as many reps as you can. A clear identifier that you have reached your capacity is when your form begins to deteriorate. Over time with repetition, you will be able to do more.
