Jennifer Chalouhi demonstrates core strength exercises for killer abs
Produced using unique technology and extensive research, Melt Water is the result of years of development. The production process mimics the natural formation and melting of glaciers and involves a complex multi-stage freezing, extracting and melting process.
Melt Water is a result of freezing, extracting and melting. As ice crystals start to form during freezing, they naturally push away all impurities and admixtures. The water that doesn’t freeze, due to impurities, is removed using special technology. At the final stage of production, the final layer of ice is melted back into water giving it the unique icy taste.
Melt Water benefits
During exercise, it’s vital to stay hydrated and ice cool Melt Water is a favourite of personal trainer Jennifer Chalouhi who has teamed up with Melt Water to talk us through core strength exercises.
Core strength exercises
This builds your upper body strength and core. Get yourself in the press-up position and with a dumbbell in either hand, do regular press-ups but also row the weight. This works several muscles in your upper body; your traps, rhomboids, lats, biceps and shoulders.
Russian twists with a kettle bell
In a sitting position, if you’re a beginner, keep your legs on the floor, hold the kettle bell in front of your chest with both hands and twist side-to-side. For a more advanced workout keep your legs raised. This is a great exercise for engaging the whole abdomen area.
You can use these for both arm strength and core strength. Beginners, take a deep breath in, lock in your elbows and lift at the knees. For an advanced exercise you can go into a L-Sit position – tuck in your core and keep your legs straight as you lift them. An L-Sit requires more strength from your abdominal muscles, oblique muscles and hip flexors. Try and hold your legs up for a few seconds to really engage your abs.
