Core strengthening exercises strengthen your core muscles including your abdominal muscles, back muscles and the muscles around the pelvis. Strong core muscles make it easier to do many physical activities but perhaps more importantly, core strength is essential for spinal and joint protection.
Core strength has become a popular topic because it affects the function of the entire body. A strong core means better stability, fewer injuries and less physical stress.
Weak core muscles can lead to chronic back and neck pain. Signs of weak core muscles include slumping in your chair, poor posture at your desk or lack of balance.
The word “core”” means central and that is exactly the function of your core muscles. They are central to nearly every movement you make and the stronger they are, the easier it is to go about your work and recreation comfortably.
