Putting your health at the core

Written by

There is a tonne of commercials that will try to sell you the latest machine that works your core. You don’t need them! You don’t even need a gym membership. Everything you need to have a great core workout can be found at home.

There are many important reasons for strengthening your core.

The core’s complex muscle structure is key to movement and transferring energy throughout the body, and experts say good core strength is key to mobility.

Poor core strength, meanwhile, can impact your balance, weaken your back, and even cause incontinence.

Here are some exercises that you can do today to strengthen your core. Of course, before you start any new exercise program, you should always consult your doctor to see if the exercises are right for you.
