The core muscles have so many functions and consist of so many muscles, that keeping them healthy is of imperative importance.
The core consists of the muscles in your abdomen, back, sides, pelvis, and buttocks. A strong core helps transmit force originating in the hips up through the upper body for throwing, pushing and pulling.
Importance of a Strong Core:
Increasing your core strength can significantly decrease the intensity of back pain or even eliminate it altogether.
It may also prevent other injuries, such as muscle strain or spasms in the lower back.
With increased core strength, you’ll improve your balance and make it easier to complete your everyday activities.
Core conditioning improves posture, which contributes to a trimmer appearance.
Also having a stronger core will help you exercise better. Athletes do core strengthening for endurance to help them perform better and it also reduces the chances of injuries.
Core strength is extremely important for physically strenuous sports like golfing, tennis and other racquet sports, biking, running, swimming, baseball, volleyball, kayaking, rowing, etc.
Core strength is very important to maintain balance and posture. Also, remember that it doesn’t matter how strong your legs are, your squat and deadlift are limited by your core strength.
So, go out there and train your Core muscles now.
In the words of Susan Trainor – “A strong core will improve your technique, strength, and stamina, and compliment everything you do.”
