Improve your Balance and Stability!

Is core strength just a fancy way of saying toning the abs or doing a lot of sit ups? Core strength and stability is imperative in looking after the body every day, and as more and more research concludes, a crucial factor in injury management.

The core is made up of three sheaths of muscles – the upper abs, the side muscles, which are called the obliques, and then a very deep layer of muscle. Those deep muscles are the ones that do the magic.

Core strength will help support the spine and increase stability and balance. The best part about strengthening the core muscles is that they target the muscles around the abdomen which act like a corset, so not only will a flatter stomach be achieved but a tighter stomach!

The whole body will get stronger by strengthening the core, as well as many other benefits, one being flexibility. When the back is stabilised, stress and tensions are removed and allows a greater range of motion, which in turn results in enhanced flexibility.

Core muscles are also connected to the diaphragm, so working the core will also enhance the ability to inhale and exhale fully. If the body is able to take in more oxygen, the heart is able to pump more blood, so there will be a significant improvement on the overall performance of the body.

So get to it and start working on your core today!
