About the Series

Are you looking to seriously work your core and build solid midline strength? In this 30-day program you'll be tested with a fun yet challenging array of highly effective workouts and rep schemes designed to ignite and develop your entire midline!

This series is not just about aesthetics or a six-pack, rather it’s about learning to engage and control your whole midsection including hip flexors, abdominals, obliques, lower back, glutes and hamstrings!

Over the next month I will guide you through 23 unique workouts and two weekly assessment videos, where you will track your progress and witness your developing strength!

Each video ranges from 5-15 minutes, and they are meant to be short and intense. The exercises will target different areas each day and the difficulty will span from easy to advanced, so your body will be met with a new challenge every day!
