Core Strength for Women

Fire Your Core with the Myosource Kinetic Bands Core Workout!

Women are often looking for ways to flatten their stomach's. Performing exercises that cause the muscles to contract while wearing the Myosource Kinetic Bands will activate the core muscles through the tension of the resistance. These types of exercises are great for strengthening the core because they cause the muscles to tighten and flex rapidly. 

The following video is personal trainer Shannon Denton using the Myosource Kinetic Bands to perform an example of a core exercise. 

 

 
  • Put on the Myosource Kinetic Bands.
  • A medicine ball is optional, adding a little more weight to this core exercise.
  • Sit in a V position, making sure the spine is straight.
  • Lift the feet off of the floor and bend the knees.
  • Bring the knees to the chest.
  • Put both hands under the knees.
  • After the knees come towards the chest, bring them back out to the straightened position. The hands will then go from under the knees to the side of the hips. 
  • The legs will open as they are pushed out and then close when they are brought towards the chest. 
  • When using the medicine ball to add the extra weight, pass it back and forth under the knees from side to side.
  • The medicine ball goes under the knees as they are brought towards the chest, then held on one side as the legs go back out.
  • Continue passing the medicine ball from one hand to the other under the knees as the exercise continues.
  • Make sure to maintain a straight spine while tightening the entire body throughout the exercise.
  • If maintaining a straight spine starts becoming hard or uncomfortable, place the hands on the ground slightly behind and to the sides. 
  • Continue the exercise for 1 minute and do 3-4 sets, only allowing yourself a 15 second break between each set.

Core strength is the base for posture and enables women to hold their shoulders back and prevent future body alignment issues. 

The Myosource Kinetic Bands are great for women because they are beneficial for every level. From the non-athletic to the elite athlete, the Myosource Kinetic Bands will help develop those core muscles, as well as provide a great tool for stabilizing the spine. This will allow them to keep their weight centered so that their shoulders and neck do not slouch forward. Core strength is also beneficial for women's balance.  When women have core strength they are able to maintain great balance, as well as prevent the possibility of back pain and/or strain.  Women can have added core issues due to pregnancy, breast weight, and even wearing high heels for extended periods of time.  All of these circumstances add pressure, easily causing back pain and poor posture if a women does not have the core muscle strength and power they need.
