Day three

Exercise 3 routine

7 mins

1 minute of each exercise

( 30 seconds each side if needed)

Squats two or single legged

Calf raises

Back raises

Side lying leg raises

Close grip wall push-ups


Inner thigh stretch

Feel free to double up to 14 mins if you are feeling it today 😀.

Remember that pain is not acceptable. Push yourself but if it hurts stop.

All these exercises can be found on the NHS WEBSITE.

I've found that inner leg stretch eases my sore lower back too!

Day 3 done! This is the first time I have managed three days in a row of core - thanks Realfoodieclub

Exercise 6 could actually injure you if it is done incorrectly. I would not suggest this exercise unless you look as fit as the woman in the picture or regularly practice Pilates or effectively know how to engage your core muscles.

The reason these exercises have been choosen is because they are on the NHS choices website and there have been no adjustments to how to perform these exercises. The NHS have deemed their explanations of the exercises sufficient to prevent injury. I appreciate your concern but I would not knowingly put something on this site I thought would cause injury. All I am trying to do is help with the motivation for some of our members to keep up with their core work. I have used the most reliable source that I could think of to do this.
