During my years as a personal trainer, I’ve had the pleasure of working with all kinds of people. For the most part, they share two dilemmas: not knowing what exercises to do and not having enough time to do them. Fortunately, when you correctly perform the best exercises to meet your goal, it doesn’t take nearly as much time as you might think. I’ve chosen three movements to effectively work your core right on your kitchen chair. Work up to three sets of ten of each, then cycle through them again if you have the time.

  • Seated Elbow-to-Knee: works obliques
  • Bicycle: tones every muscle in the abdominal group
  • Pendulum: strengthens upper body in conjunction with abs and hip flexors

Next time you finish your morning coffee, push back from the table and give these a try!
