Strength training can be great to implement into your routine, especially during the winter. If you take the time to work on your core strength, your spring results could benefit. While Coburn’s core exercises aren’t for the faint of heart, use them as inspiration and work one or two into your strength routine. Disclaimer: doing all five side plank variations in one session might cause severe soreness and residual burn, so consider working them into your pre-existing routine one at a time.
