So after a dieting period I'm switching back to eating healthy but in larger quantities (bulking).

What would be good all-round exercises to do all week round?

I work out 4 days a week so could I do the same exercises everyday and still train most of my core muscles? I'm still doing 'regular' fitness (weights) but also cardio combined with my core exercises so its not purely core.

What would be good core exercises to do both in the gym and at home?

These are some of my "conditioning" exercises, mainly around "core".

Planks are cool but I find them pretty boring, and isometrically I'd rather do front squats (including as part of the clean).

  • I totally share your opinion on the planks, i dont 'mind' doing any exercise but planks are pretty boring. Great answer though, thanks for taking the time. Dec 11, 2014 at 9:27

Front planks, side planks, rollouts w/stability ball, barbell or wheel, jackknifes w/stability ball, pikes with stability ball, front plank/stir the pot on stability ball.

  • Can you expand on your answer? The poster may not know what planks, jackknifes or even stability balls are.
