The "Mercedes Benz" Workout

Twelve core exercises make up the "Mercedes Benz" core stability workout.

The number of times you repeat the twelve exercises (sets), the duration of each exercise, and the recovery between each exercise and each set is up to you. A suggestion for an experienced athlete is three sets where each exercise is conducted for one minute, with a thirty-second recovery between each exercise and a three-minute recovery between each set.
