Core Workout Videos and Tips

Get Fit With Core Workout Training Videos and Tips

Is core training a part of your regular routine? We don’t mean the occasional sit-up or push-up. We mean giving your core muscles a more diversified workout. Strengthening the muscles around your trunk and pelvis, including your abs, obliques, glutes and traps. Your core truly consists of everything except your arms and legs. By working out your core muscles, you can strengthen and flatten your abs, stabilize your lower back, enhance your flexibility, improve your balance and coordination, and even improve your breathing.

The cool thing about core exercises is that you don’t have to go to the gym or have special equipment to get a good workout, but you can if you want to go that route. It’s really just about doing any exercise that involves coordinating your back and abdominal muscles. Whether you’d like to focus on bodyweight exercises or break out the free weights, you can get an incredible core-strengthening workout. We've gathered together some YouTube videos and created a Pinterest board specifically for core workouts to get you on your way to a well-rounded fitness routine.

Andy McDermott Fitness Presents 79 Core Exercises

Whether you are looking for exercises to strengthen your core, want to broaden your fitness training or simply want to switch up your core workout, Andy McDermott Fitness has some core exercises for you.

Bodyweight Training Videos & Tips

Building a Buff Body with Bodyweight Training

Bodyweight training is oftentimes overlooked and underrated. What's amazing is the body transforming results that bodyweight exercises can help you achieve. It's not like your body can distinguish between a barbell, dumbbell, kettlebell or your own bodyweight. All it really knows is how hard it needs to work to move the resistance. For example, if you're bench pressing, you use your pectorals, deltoids and triceps, but don't really work any other muscle groups, unless you make a conscious effort to do so. By performing bodyweight exercises, like one-arm push-ups, you're not only working your pecs, delts and triceps, but you're also incidentally working your lats, abs, glutes, quads and hamstrings. Another great thing about bodyweight training is that you can workout anytime wherever you are. You don't need any extra equipment and you don't even have to go to the gym.

We found a few videos that show numerous bodyweight exercises, including five of Coach Kozak's favorites, 44 of the best bodyweight exercises from Tee Major Fitness and a 30-minute bodyweight boot camp. Plus, we've added a special Pinterest board filled with bodyweight training tips, exercises and workouts.

  • Sit up to a Russian Twist

Boot Camp-Style Bodyweight Workout

If you’re ready to intensify your bodyweight training, then you’ll love this 30-Minute Bodyweight Boot Camp Workout You Can Do Anywhere video. Adam Rosante, a celebrity trainer based out of New York City, leads the way in this half-hour of muscle pumping, sweat dripping full-body workout. He makes a wonderful point with this no excuses workout, “You’re going to use the body you have to create the body you want.”

This video includes a warm up, full workout and cool down, as well as lots of motivation from Adam along the way. Another nice thing about this workout is that if you don’t have enough time, the warm up nicely gets your blood flowing and is better than not working out at all.

February 2015 Tips from IFBB Pros Presented by HGH.com

HGH.com Presents IFBB Pros & Tips: February 2015 Edition

Who better to get bodybuilding tips and tricks from than the IFBB Pros? For this month’s edition of HGH.com’s Tips from IFBB Pros, we’ve gathered a few video clips and added more to the corresponding Pinterest board. We begin with training exercises from Alice Matos, move onto an amazing back and chest workout with Brandon Curry, then round it out with the top three winners of the 2015 IFBB Pro Western Cup.

Training with IFBB Bikini Pro Alice Matos

Get an inside look at some of the exercises IFBB Bikini Pro Alice Matos does. This Brazilian bombshell demonstrates some unique training methods and even has her workout partners help her out.

We found some other interesting tidbits from an interview Alice did for SimplyShredded.com. When asked if she could only pick three exercises what would the would be and why, she chose

  • Barbell Squats
  • Bench Press
  • Back Row

Her reasoning is that they're all compound movements, so they use multiple major muscle groups simultaneously. She finds these types of exercises are ideal when building muscle mass.

Brandon Curry Gets Ready for the 2015 Arnold Classic

With only three-and-a-half weeks left until the Arnold Classic, IFBB Pro Brandon Curry hits the Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym. He's been training his heart out while focusing on quality mass gains and improvements. In this video, we take a look at his back and chest workout as he trains both areas at the same time. His workout includes:

  • Pull Ups
  • Low Row Machine
  • Close Grip Pull Downs
  • Kroc Row
  • Dumbbell Pullover
  • Decline
  • Dips
  • Pec Deck Machine
  • Incline Dumbbell Flyes

The Best of the 2015 IFBB Pro Western Cup

In Jon Lindsay's Muscle Contest, the 2015 IFBB Pro Western Cup, these three buff gentlemen placed for the men's physique competition:

  • Frank Ortega
  • Joseph Lee
  • Patrick Fulgham

After the show, they were interviewed by Tamer El Guindy, VP of Operations for Muscle Contest. When asked how long it took him to prepare for this competition, Patrick Fulgham says he did a 12-week prep. What's next for Joseph Lee? He will be back for the Muscle Grand Prix in April and is working toward going to the men's physique Olympia competition.

Last, but not least, we hear from, first place winner, Frank Ortega who had to make some sacrifices during the holiday and completed a 15 to 16-week prep for this competition. After recently suffering an injury, he just focused on making his pro debut and wants 2015 to be the year he brings his best.
