Who better to tell us about creating a strong, sculpted midsection than an ab aficionado? Said expert, NYC physical therapist Dr. Karena Wu, gave us her five favorite core workouts to do right after cardio.
Cardio will burn the calories and fat, but core exercises will create abs, strength, and definition. So when the fat burns away, you'll reveal a tightened, lean middle. "The core is king," Dr. Wu said, and "very important for bodily strength, preservation, and ability."
These instructions are straight from the physical therapist herself, so get ready for a little tough love for your abs. With a bit of cardio and these moves as a cooldown, a stronger, leaner core is waiting for you!
