If you have knee, hip, or lower back conditions you may not be able to get to the floor to do core. You really don’t have to, and while the gym may afford you some more options (primarily due to cables) you don’t need a gym really to do standing core exercises.
Try these 10 exercises in the video (whether you have injuries or not) and then use the list as a reminder. They may not all fit, but many of them will.
- Rotate – with a weight
- Plank in a chair – with a lift, optional
- Press forward
- Standing knee chambers
- Boxing moves
- Standing lunge press
- Standing wall press
Let me hear from you. Do you have any limitations due to joint or muscle injuries?
