Are you tired of the same old crunches and planks in your quest for a strong core? It’s time to shake things up and introduce a game-changer into your daily routine – the Goblet March.

What is a Goblet March? 

The Goblet March involves using a dumbbell or kettlebell, held either close to your chest (similar to a goblet squat) or extended in front of you while marching. The weight distance from your body determines the intensity of the exercise; the farther it is, the more challenging it becomes for your core.

This dynamic movement not only engages your shoulders, glutes, and hips but also puts a significant focus on your abdominal muscles.

Let’s take a look at how to do a goblet march. Again, you’ll need some weight for this exercise, whether a kettlebell or one of the best adjustable dumbbells.
