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 flat tummy underneath! Yes, abs are made in the kitchen, but we want to make sure we have the muscle to show off when the flab starts to shed. Plus, 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. Grab a mat, it’s time to sculpt your holiday abs, cutie!
