Strengthening your core has many health benefits. An unbalanced, weak, or tight core can cause a lot of problems, so it's important to not only strengthen your abdominals, but also your back muscles and the muscles in between.
Here are just a few of the benefits of maintaining a strong core.
Good Posture: You will not only stand taller and look more confident, but you will also feel more confident. You will be able to breath better and your spine will thank you. Good posture helps the spine and the plates in between the spine align and feel less stressed.
Stability and Balance: By having a strong core, you will have better balance and stability. This will allow you to move more freely on all sorts of terrain. Increasing balance and stability helps decrease accidents and falling. Thus, you will have more independence.
Sports and Activities: Your core is your powerhouse. The stronger your core, the stronger you will be in the sports and activities that you do. Whether it's golf, swimming, skiing, snowboarding, rowing, tennis, or just playing around with your friends-be the best that you can be with a stronger core.
Healthy Back:More and more people today have back pain. It's a debilitating, excruciating pain which can be prevented or treated with core strengthening and exercises. It's best to prevent back problems from happening by keeping a strong core.
Every day activities will become easier and safer to do when you have a strong core. House-cleaning, getting onto a bike or train, getting in and out of a car, or bending over to pick up a ball all require your core muscles. We want to maintain our health and be able to do things with ease. This is why it's important to strengthen your core and thus, have more power.
