Nothin’ like a Strong CORE

AH, core workouts. Personally, my absolute favorite workout to do is core. I love the feeling of having toned abs, which gives you the ability to build a strong lower body as well. I’m sure there are numerous core workouts out there that can greatly help a soccer player build his or her core. The following work outs that I am providing are two of the killer workouts we do here at CUA! Do what you need to do to build your best core, which has a great effect on your game.
