Bulletproof Your Core With 3 Advanced TRX Exercises

Ditch the Crunches, Sit-Ups and boring Planks. Stop doing “ab exercises” that fry your hip flexors instead of working your abdominal muscles.

When it comes to training the core, you have to think outside the box. In this case, the box is your rectus abdoninis—the “six-pack muscles.”

The TRX core exercises featured below are some of the best bang-for-your buck exercises. But first, let’s talk more about the “core.”

There is so much more to the core than a set of washboard abs and taking a selfie in good lighting. The core is vital for athletic performance, general health and most of all, the safety and well-being of your body during exercise.

When you train your core, think “everything from your glutes to your neck, 360 degrees around your body.” With this mindset, you can bulletproof your body and build a sturdy foundation for powerful athletic performance and a healthy life.

Here are three TRX core exercises that will strengthen, stabilize and bulletproof your core.
