    Perfect core exercises.

    you don't wanna train ur core daily prolly 2 3 times a week is better. You want to go really hard so that your muscles are sore and have a day to rest. My favorite core excerises are twists, plank (you can get great variations on that one) decline weighted crunches and leg raises
