Spring and summer are just around the corner and are often a good motivation for many of us to shed some of those winter layers and get into beach-body shape.
But beyond vanity and looking good, strengthening your core is also critical for optimal health.
If your core is strong, that strength radiates out to your extremities and you will be better able to stabilize and align your body, absorb and brace for any impact and move your body more efficiently and with better mechanics.
It’s important to mention that your core is not only your abs – but also includes your back and hips so to strengthen your core effectively you need to work the front, back and sides! Try to perform the following exercises 2-3 days per week.
