“Any muscle that is possibly involved in maintaining [a] neutral spine is therefore a core muscle.” When you do cardio moves that involve some level of instability, the core muscles turn on to protect the spine and prevent potential injury. Not only does that help support your spine, but it also provides big-time benefits for your entire core. Here are five exercises that will put the powerhouse muscles in your core to work when you do cardio. Burpees.

Also known as squat thrusts, burpees are a total body exercise that boosts your heart rate and conditions your heart.
