This program is designed to train your core, but without doing traditional abs training, like hovers and sit ups. Core training like this will have an impact on the appearance of your abs, more than performing sit ups. It will also burn more calories, because you use your whole body. In addition, you learn how to integrate your abdominals and the rest of your core, into whole body movement, which will ultimately increase your power and strength.

Definitely one of the toughest core sessions that we’ve done for a while!
