Core Workout 2/27/14

My life has been pretty hectic lately, so I have been designing efficient and effective home workout routines.  After several hours studying yesterday for my personal trainer certification, I needed a good core workout to work out those kinks in my back and strengthen my abdominal muscles.  I utilized some basic equipment I keep on hand for home workouts.
