I didn't expect to feel much stronger after just two weeks, so it surprised me that I truly did feel a difference. And it wasn't just evident in the fact that I could complete her 10-minute workout without stopping; I also felt that core strength benefit my other workouts, like being able to row faster, feeling stronger when indoor rock climbing, and being able to hold handstands and headstands with more stability.
Committing to just 10 minutes felt doable and inspired me to be more active. If I didn't feel like exercising that day, I just thought, "Well this ab workout is just 10 minutes, I can do that," and afterward I usually felt inspired to work out longer. And as my physical therapist had suggested doing core work to help with the hip and lower back pain I was experiencing, within two weeks, I felt a bit of relief.
