    Looking to do a core fitness programme.

    Whenever I do sit-ups or crunches my core hurts at the time, but I find that I progress more when I ache the next morning, but I never do . With that being said, are there any intense core (abs) exercises you know?

    Planking is great, it may be hard initially but its definitely worth it from my experience, make sure you have good posture so you don't hurt your back as it puts your middle under considerable strain (maybe look at pictures online of others doing it for guidance)

    May I ask as to why you're doing a core only programme?

    Ab rollouts
    Weighted ab rollouts
    Planks
    Weighted planks
    Hanging leg raises
    Planches - if you've got a core of peace

    Well, I'm not only doing a core programme. I'm kind of doing my own personal legs, bums and tums and I can't seem to find the right exercises for my core

    Plank has always been a favourite for me, I've been doing the plank with weights on my back (not too heavy of course). But I just want to try something new

    What exactly does the plank work on?

    I recommend doing some ab video exercises like the ones from fitness blender on youtube where its for a certain amount of time and gives you a variety. Also, you can do weighted sit ups etc.

    Just to point out

    Doing a proper lifting routine would be of far more use to you than any home made routine

    You won't get bulky or similar - it's a myth

    Have a read of the FAQ

    From what I understand the deltoids, triceps and the abdominal muscles.
