How To Do Core Body Hops

Chris Freytag demonstrating Core Body Hops

Core Body Hops is a powerful exercise that combines cardio and core for one, solid and effective move! If you are looking for a new and creative way to train your core body, you should learn how to do Core Body Hops. Crunches, sit-ups and reverse curls are all good, solid core moves, but none of them hold a candle to the effectiveness of just a few Core Body Hops. A solid plank is an amazing way to train your core, but once you learn it you can add these hops and really get something done. After all, most of the time the desire to change your abs and go for that six-pack has a little to do with the core muscles and a lot to do with the fat that sits on top of them. By using Core Body Hops you get both in on great move! Not only will you feel your abs, but you’ll get your heart rate of and burn some calories in the process.

Core strength is important to achieve for many reasons. Beyond just looking great, strong, tight abs provide you with better posture, a stronger back and a more stable body all around. Not only do your abs need to be strong in front where you see that gorgeous six-pack, but your lower back and obliques, or waistline muscles, matter too. This move does it all.


Keep in mind that this move is not for beginners. First you should learn how to do a solid plank, either on your knees or in a full plank position. Once you have that strength you can add the side hops with your feet. Try Core Body Hops in our workout 7 Total Body Exercises That Burn Fat Fast.
