This is going to be a serious challenge, especially considering we use, what some 400 some exercises. Top 10? Really?
Oh come on, this will be fun. It might take some thought, but you already know a few on the top of your head. Now, by top ten, I am not necessarily saying the 10 easiest or the 10 hardest. Nor am I saying the 10 most effective or 10 best core exercises. It will be a combination of aspects that you yourself must decide upon. In fact, give us a reason or two about your most favorites.
If you can’t come up with a complete top ten, just think of a few you would put at the very top and think about why. Below, I compiled two lists actually.
