Fitness - Core Balance Disc Workout

Are you ready to step up your workout? A core balance disc, like this one from my partners at ProsourceFit is a great (and inexpensive!) way to add intensity to your routine because it incorporates a balance challenge, working multiple muscles simultaneously. The inflation amount can be adjusted for less or greater sturdiness, depending on your workout need, and the non-slip grip surface prevents slipping. It also comes with a pump, making it easy to inflate and deflate.



A core balance disc is a great way to add intensity to your routine.

Here are a few moves you can try:


Single leg side raises:

- Stand on the disc with both feet, body straight, core tight.

- Lift one leg up to the side 45 degrees, with your hands on your hips.

- Pause for 2 seconds, lower and repeat 12 times on each side.


Single leg rear raises:

- Stand on the disc with both feet, body straight, core tight.

- Lift one leg to the rear 45 degrees, keeping our hands on your hips.

- Pause for 2 seconds, lower and repeat 12 times each side.




Squats:

- Stand on the disc with both feet, body straight, core tight.

- Stretch your hands out in front and slowly bend your knees and waist to perform a squat, until your knees bend 90 degrees.

- Hold for 2 seconds and come back up.

- Repeat 12 times.




Bicep curl to shoulder press:

- Hold a dumbbell in each hand and step onto balance disc keeping your core tight, back straight and chest lifted. 

- Perform a bicep curl by flexing and bending at the elbows bringing the weights to your shoulders.

- Rotate your arms outward until your palms are facing forward.

- Press the weights overhead.

- Lower and repeat 12 times.

- For a greater challenge perform the move sending on one leg.  




Tricep pushup:

- Place both hands on the disc and extend your legs straight behind.

- Keeping your core tight and body in a straight line, bend your elbows keeping your arms against your side as you lower your body until your chest touches the disc.

- Hold that position for 2 seconds, then push up to starting position.

- Repeat 10 times.

- To modify, perform the move on your knees.
