When you start training your core you want to work the stabilization musculature. These exercises help stabilize the spine and pelvis. Here are some examples of core stabilization exercises: Bridge
Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat and toes pointing straight ahead.
Draw in your belly button and squeeze your glutes.
Lift your pelvis off the ground until shoulders, hips and knees are in line.
Slowly lower pelvis to the ground.
Exercise should be done slowly maintaining belly button draw-in at all times. Prone Iso-Ab
Lie on your stomach with forearms on the ground.
Draw-in your belly button
Squeeze glutes to raise yourself off the ground
Hold yourself there for as long as you can maintain proper form up to 60"
Once these exercises become easy, you can lift one leg or try doing them on a stability ball.
