Core Exercise Ideas for Climbing

If you're not sure what exercises to do to improve your core muscles, here are a few suggestions, with demos I've found on the internet:

Sit Ups http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fbU_MkV7NE

Crunches http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xyd_fa5zoEU

Reverse Crunch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyv14e2QDq0

Left and Right crunches http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwVXJKqWGpg

The Plank http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz0oFaVGuh4

Russian Twist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeAtimSCxsY

V-Sits http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_1KGrBx2T4

I've been doing a mix of these, as each one works a different set of muscles within the abdominal area.  More on this soon, with an expert blog post on muscle groups and how to train for optimum core strength.

Just to re-iterate I'm not a health professional and you should ensure you're exercising within your limits - you know what they are!- make sure you're fit and healthy before exercise, stop if you feel unwell and consult your doctor if you feel there's anything that might affect your wellbeing when exercising.

Coming soon... Improving My Core for Climbing.. some ideas to help motivation.
