The Importance of a Strong Body Core


Core exercises are a critical part of a well-rounded fitness program.

However, aside from occasional situps and pushups, core exercises are often neglected.

Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles.

The core is actually made up of three groups of muscles: The upper abs, the side muscles, which are called the oblique, and then this very deep layer of muscle that supports your spine and acts as a natural corset — so when you work on them not only do you get a flatter stomach but a tighter stomach, and stronger back.

The benefits of core strength training:

➤ Improved body control and balance.

➤ Increased overall power from both the core muscles as well as shoulders, arms, and legs.

➤ Less risk of injury, as the core muscles act as shock absorbers

➤ Eliminates Back Pain.

➤ Upright Posture.
