Most Effective Core Exercises for Busy Parents

Being a parent keeps you busy from sunrise to sunset all day.

Even after the sun goes down, you are probably still rushing around getting things done—including your daily workout.

Having a strong core can protect you from back pain, which is one of the most common ailments for parents who lug their kids around constantly.

Strengthening your core doesn't have to take hours out of your day if you're doing the most effective exercises. Core work should be done 3 to 5 days per week for optimal benefits. I like to do my core strengthening in my living room at the end of the day while I'm catching up on what's going on in TV land.

Mix and match three or more of these exercises for an effective core workout in less than 15 minutes.
