Today's Workout 81: The 4-move circuit to chisel your core

Utilize a medicine ball, a Swiss ball, and your own bodyweight to build strength and muscle in your most essential muscle group.

Today's Workout With Mike Simone: The Medicine Ball Circuit To Crush Your Core And Quads
Duration 30-45
Exercises 4
Equipment Yes

If you've been looking for exercises to sharpen up your core while training your chest at the same time, then congratulations: You've found them. This four-move, 30-minute circuit utilizes just two pieces of equipment—and some serious determination on your part—to melt the last layer of fat around your midsection and train your core muscles (that means abs, too), revealing lean definition underneath.

All you need to do now is incorporate it into your weekly fitness regimen.

Directions

You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 60 to 90 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
