What is Abs & Core?
The muscles around the trunk and pelvis area of the body are known as the CORE of the body. Many people mistakenly think that their “abs” or abdominal muscles are the only core muscles, but in fact, the core muscle group includes all of the muscles that are located in the torso that keep the body stable and balanced. It makes sense when you think about it as it takes many different muscles working together to keep your body well-aligned and strong during different daily activities.
Abs & Core is designed to take you through exercises specific to developing a strong, functional set of core muscles, whether starting from zero or just the need to develop and strengthen the core from its present condition.
Today’s lifestyles have become increasingly sedentary; we spend more and more time sitting, with our core muscles relaxed. This sedentary time happens at home, in vehicles and, even more so, at work.
Research suggests that core stabilization and core strengthening can help to improve back health, balance and overall functional fitness. (Functional fitness is the ability to maintain a fitness level that allows completion of everyday tasks). This exercise also helps runners to improve their performance, whether to be a faster runner and/or the ability to maintain a good posture throughout a long race.
Added benefits of a strong core are:
- To help prevent injuries
- To protect body organs
- To relieve back pain
- To improve overall posture, and finally,
- To enhance the muscle tone and define the waistline.
Who is this for?
Maintaining a strong body core is important at any age – good balance, posture and back health are all linked to core strength, and the core is the vital “foundation” of all the body’s movements, whether walking, carrying a heavy bag or baby, or exercising.
