The area of the body, which is commonly referred to as the core, is your midsection and it involves all your muscles in that area including the front, back and sides. These muscles work as stabilisers for the entire body. Core training is simply doing specific exercises to develop and strengthen these stabilizer muscles.
If any of these core muscles are weakened, it could result in lower back pain or a protruding waistline. Keeping these core muscles strong can do wonders for your posture and help give you more strength in other exercises like running and walking.
Some of the benefits of functional core training include
- Toned Abdominal Muscles
- Prevents Lower-Back Pain
- Improved Respiratory Functions
- Torso and Spine Stabilisation
- Improved Posture
- Prevents Injury
