Core Control with Zahra
Season 4, Episode 3 • 28m
Welcome to the fifth session in our series of six Young People’s workouts. This workout is about strengthening the muscles all around your torso, which will help improve your whole-body strength, balance, coordination and posture.
In this session there’s a short warm up, three blocks of work, and a cool down and stretch section. Make sure you have plenty of space, a mat and a bottle of water. You will also need 5 similar-sized objects, such as some balls, cups or rolled up socks.
You can do this class as many times as you want – the more you do it the stronger you’ll be and the better you’ll get at your favourite activities. Remember you should feel no pain when doing these exercises, please stop if you do.
