Core Stability Challenge for Irish Dance

Updated: Apr 12, 2020


Time to change up your core routine of hundreds of crunches and add these three stability core challenges to the mix. Through each one, time yourself and see how long you can hold it with proper form. Once you loose the form, record the time. Each day, try to slowly increase your time.

Happy Training!
