Everything you do in the gym—and life—activates your core, from raising a weight out in front of you, pressing overhead, to rotating your torso. This complex will strengthen your core and train the key stabilizers in any squat, press, or pull.

DIRECTIONS

Perform the kettlebell swings first, then complete two rounds of the circuit (exercises labeled A, B, C, etc.).
