‘Refining and using Your Core’

Everything you do hinges from your core. People often think of their core as the belly in front or the 6 pack.

It is important to engage and use your core correctly. By using your core correctly promotes good posture, stability, improved endurance and balance.

Core muscles run deep and girdle your whole body. Drawing in your belly button and squeezing your bottom, engages the muscles that wrap around your spine.

Major muscles in the core include the pelvic floor muscles, transverse abdominis, multifidus, internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis. erector spinae (sacrospinalis), longissimus thoracis and the diaphragm. Minor core muscles include the latissimus dorsi, gluteus maximus and trapezius.

Therefore, your core most often acts as a stabilizer and force transfer center rather than a prime mover.

Functional movements like dead lifts, overhead squats and push-ups are some of the ones to use. By training using these rather than just crunches and back extensions gives you greater strength gain, more efficient movement and longevity of health.

Keeping your core strong is very important to your continued quality of life, especially in an ageing population. So much injury and illnesses could be prevented by taking care of your body and what you put into or on it.
