Primal At-Home Workout: Core

Mark Sisson doing a plank outsideGyms all across the world are closed right now. Many of us are stuck at home, unable or unwilling to even get to parks and hiking trails and beaches. We’re all homebodies now, and yet the need for physical activity hasn’t diminished. If anything, it’s more crucial than ever that we stay active and healthy, fit and strong.

Today, we’re going to start with core workouts.

The core is, well, the core. It’s the foundation of your body. It’s how strength and force is transmitted to the world around you. It keeps you upright. And, although this might seem unimportant (it’s not), it’s a major component of LGN—looking good naked. Form and function depend heavily on the strength of your core.

You can do this entire workout in one block, sprinkle it throughout the day, or do some of it every day in addition to other training.
