12 Days of Fitness Challenge – Day 9: Holiday Cutie Core Workout

It’s Day 9 of the 12 Days of Fitness Holiday Workout Challenge and I am so impressed with your dedication!

No matter how baggy the holiday sweater, it’s always nice to know you have a strong tummy underneath! Have you ever seen a beautiful woman and wished she would just stand up straight?! I have! Good posture from a strong core doesn’t only make us look taller and slimmer, it prevents injury and low back pain too. Grab a mat, it’s time to sculpt your holiday abs, cutie!

  1. This is a good reminder of how important it is to strengthen the core. It really does help when it comes to good posture and walking without a slouch. Great pictures to demonstrate the exercise!
