Core Hammer Workout

Quick and effective total body circuit featuring the Core Hammer

Summer is here, school is out, and there are so many fun-in-the-sun things to do. But before you head out to the pool, make time for a quick workout. You can even workout by the pool with this 20-minute circuit.

Helya Glen, owner of The Studio Ventura, CA put together a quick and effective total body circuit workout that can be done with minimum equipment at home, in your garage, outside, or at your gym.

This workout features very dynamic pieces of equipment – kettlebells and the Core Hammer. If you haven’t had a chance to see or experience the Core Hammer in action – here are a few things you should know. This portable and versatile FUNctional training tool can be used to complete a sledgehammer workout without a tire.

The head is made of solid urethane that will absorb and dissipate the force so that you can strike the ground at the gym, in your driveway, or in your front yard. The long lever and distally loaded end provide endless options to increase core strength and cardio conditioning through a variety of mobility, rotational, and impact exercises.

Once you have mastered Helya’s circuit, you can head over MostFit’s Training Page to see more moves you can do with the Core Hammer. Switch out Helya’s two Core Hammer moves with two more from MostFit and you will find yourself with plenty of “hammertime” moves to use all summer long.
