What is the importance of training your core?

About

To keep your core strong and flexible so you stay away from injuries that may occur from day to day activities.

Your core is a complex series of muscles, extending far beyond your abdominals, including everything besides your arms and legs. It is incorporated in almost every movement of the human body.

The area of the body, which is commonly referred to as the core, is your midsection and it involves all your muscles in that area including the front, back and sides. The core includes the traverse abdominis, erector spinae, obliques and your lower lats.

These muscles work as stabilizers for the entire body. Core training is simply doing specific exercises to develop and strengthen these stabilizer muscles. If any of these core muscles are weakened, it could result in lower back pain or a protruding waistline. Keeping these core muscles strong can do wonders for your posture and help give you more strength in other exercises like running, walking, exercising and weight lifting.

Prolonged sitting and no exercise weakens the muscles of your midsection.

Keeping the torso strong is important because it is the body’s centre of power.
