Kevin Hart’s Core Workout Will Challenge Your Whole Body

It’s because Hart, at age 40, worked out with very smart, careful moves that reinforced his lower back and core strength, two things he needed to hone after that car crash. Hart did it under the guidance of his longtime trainer, Ron “Boss” Everline, who designed a series of moves that forced Hart to hone his core while he trained other muscles.

 

So Hart’s workouts pulled consistent double-duty. This workout will attack your back, biceps and leg muscles in earnest, but it won’t do only that. Every single move will test your abs as well.

Goblet Squat

Stand holding a dumbbell at your chest, abs tight, feet shoulder width apart. Push your butt back, keeping your chest up; squat down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Stand back up. That’s 1 rep; do 3 sets of 10.

Elevated Plank Dumbbell Row

Get in plank position, with your right forearm on a bench and your left hand holding a dumbbell. Row the dumbbell toward your rib cage. Pause, then return to the start. That’s 1 rep; do 3 sets of 10 per side.

Stability-Ball Plank Rollout

Get in a plank on a ball. Roll forward, then back, keeping your abs tight, for 30 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds. Do 3 sets. Too easy? Hart rolls the ball in different directions, spelling out his name every set.
