It’s hard to go wrong with a core workout that includes what Olympic swimmer Dara Torres describes as her “favorite moves.” But this workout, from Shape magazine’s August issue, was even more of a killer than I expected. Just *try* to do the slow-ball rollout and corkscrew back-to-back without grunting, wheezing or otherwise embarrassing yourself.
I especially love its focus on the BOSU, which I’ve found to be a great tool for those of us with cranky IT bands—or just about any kind of running injury.
The workout is excerpted from Torres’ new book, “Gold Medal Fitness,” in which she shares her strategies for goal-setting, diet and exercise, including 35 days of simple menu plans and her actual workout moves. Yes, it’s on my wish-list.
