Serena's Core Power NTC Workout

Coming down from the high of my race last week, it's time to get back to business! A strong runner isn't just someone who runs for miles and miles...you need your conditioning too! And with summer coming up, there is no better area to work on than your core!

For those of you who either a) haven't yet downloaded the Nike Training Club (NTC) app b) Can't download the NTC app as you don't have an iPhone or android c) Didn't want to download the FREE NTC app...here is what you are missing!

This is the entire NTC Serena Core Power Workout! Grab a stability ball, a resistance band (read on to win one courtesy of Zico Coconut Water) and get the music on (you can even download a soundtrack right here on Keep it simpElle)


There are five exercises in total all explained below in the images (images owned by Nike, taken from Pinterest). Repeat the sequence 3 times to complete the 15 minute workout!








Okay! Now here is the best bit (saved it till last!)...WIN yourself one of 5 Zico Coconut Water resistance bands! I think you have about 7 days to enter...

Good luck with the workout and let me know what you think!

p.s huge thanks to Zico for providing me with the resistance bands when I asked nicely :) You can find out more about them on Facebook (UK) / Other and Twitter (UK) / Other :)

  1. my fave piece of equipment would probably have to be a set of dumb bells - really good for toning my arms and helpful for doing squats!

    hope i win :¬D

    1. Couldn't agree more! ..although mine had to be left in the UK as too heavy to take in my luggage! I will be repurchasing soon for sure though :)

      ...good luck :) x

  2. Excellent post! I'd love to win so I can add to home gym & do resistance workouts instead of using old tees :P

  3. Love this work out - I don't have a ball at home so took the app to the gym and huffed and puffed my way through it. Serena is TOUGH (like all us NTC'ers :)

    1. Even I don't own a ball! ...I did rewrite / adapt this program without equipment to teach at one of my NTC classes so they knew what to expect and it was just as tough...might have to share that one of these days ;)
      ...good luck ;) x
