F.E.A.T. Fitness: Summer Workout Series

Tip of the week: It is important to strengthen the core. You should do your core exercises before other exercises for a couple reasons. You have the most energy at the beginning of a workout, so you will be able to do them a bit easier and more effectively. Another added benefit to doing them before other exercises is that every exercise involves core strength, so if you work on your core beforehand, it will increase your workout efficiency.
