Core training should be an important part of your workout routine. Not only does it strengthen your abdominal muscles, but it also promotes spine health.
Back pain is frequently linked to a weak core. When your abdominals are weak, it’s often because your back muscles are overly strong. Building your core muscles will help balance the front and back of your body.
Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, abdomen and hips to work together, which promote stability. This leads to better balance in your every day life and the playing field.
One benefit of core exercises is that they can be done anywhere. You don’t need a gym membership or any equipment in order to get a good core workout. The top three core exercises are planks, stability ball crunches and opposite arm leg raise toe touches.
In addition to exercises that specifically target your core, aerobic exercise like running or swimming should be part of any well-rounded fitness routine.
