CORE STRENGTH WORKOUTS

core strength workouts,

Core strength workouts are an often neglected component of most people's workout programs.

The "core" is our body's center (mid-section) from which movement originates. The core is not only comprised of the muscles on the front of our mid-section (abs) but also muscles on the side (obliques) and the ones in the back portion (lower back spinal erectors).



So, what's the benefit of having a strong core?



Having a strong (or stronger) core will give you more strength (force) when you need to generate movement.

For example, if a baseball player has a strong core he can swing his bat with more force and throw the ball harder and farther. A soccer player with a solid and strong core can generate more force when he kicks the ball.

For most average people, having a strong core means being able to do everyday tasks with more ease, without too much exertion. When we move our arms and legs we "generate" force for such movements from within our body's core. Simple as that.

Thus, incorporationg core strength workouts into your regular exercise regimen is something that you should do on a cyclical basis (not all the time).

If you feel that your core needs strengthening, you should do some of the workout exercises we listed here as part of your regular workout program.

Select up to 3 core exercises and do them 2 to 4 times a week over a period of time (8 to 10 weeks) together with your regular workout program.
