GoodFIT: Strengthen your core at your desk daily with these exercises

We're partnering with James Fisher Jr. of Mission Fit Fitness to bring you CW33's GoodFIT. Our goal? To get you moving and feeling good!

We showed you how to do chair squats to get you up and moving. Next, we're comin' for those abs!

Don't worry, we're not going to have you wallowing around on your office floor, looking like a fool to all of your coworkers.

Just like the squats, you can use your chair and even modify the exercise if you have back pain.

Office chairs have become the mortal enemy to our cores and posture health.

It's time to own that chair and make it work for you instead of slowly killing you.

We will be releasing a new GoodFIT weekly, so be sure to follow along or sign up for our newsletter.
