I am a big fan have a strong core above having “visible abs”. Though lately, I haven’t done a lot of work to improve my core strength… The new Core workout in the Week of Hard Labor definitely forces you to develop a strong core! I was happy to see some new core movements that we haven’t seen from other Beachbody workouts in this one. 25 minutes of core work is also one of the longer ab/core workouts that you’ll find in the library.
