We always get the same question, same complaints, same sentence all over again… “I have Lower Back Pain” or “Why I always have lower back pain?”
Answer is.. We Need to have STRONG CORE!
Why you should strengthen your core muscles..
You know core exercises are good for you — but do you include core exercises in your fitness routine? Here’s why you should.
Core exercises are an important part of a well-rounded fitness program. Aside from occasional situps and pushups, however, core exercises are often neglected. Still, it pays to get your core muscles — the muscles around your trunk and pelvis — in better shape. Read on to find out why.
Core exercises are a crucial part of any exercise regimen. These exercises strengthen the body, particularly the pelvis, hip, and lower back areas. Some examples of this type of exercise include crunches, reverse crunches, ball crunches, oblique crossing over crunches, air bicycling, plank, butt lifts, back extensions with ball, and many more. Below, you will find the top benefits of including these in your workout.
Core exercises improve your balance and stability
Core exercises train the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony. This leads to better balance and stability, whether on the playing field or in daily activities. In fact, most sports and other physical activities depend on stable core muscles.
Flatten and Strengthen your Abs
These exercises work on the deep abdominal muscles, which are scientifically known as transverses abdominis. Doing these will not only strengthen your abs, but also flatten them to make your body look better. Core training is the fastest way to flatten your abs among other types of abdominal workouts.
Stabilize the Lower Back
Core exercises also make the lower back stronger and healthier. With a stronger back, you will be less prone to lower back pain that is usually a result of carrying too much weight, or pressure on the lower back. By enhancing the body’s weight-bearing capabilities, back muscles and ligaments will not easily be damaged by heavy weight. Moreover, a stronger core will allow for normal spinal functions.
Improve Balance and Coordination
As the back and abdominal area becomes stronger, the body also experiences an improvement in balance and coordination. Doing core exercises stimulates a particular area in the brain called the cerebellum that links to body parts for coordination, spatial awareness, and balance. These exercises are not simply a workout for the body, but also for the brain.
Hope this helps you to improve your daily exercise routine!
