WHAT IS CORE STRENGTH?
When you hear the phrase “strong core”, what do you think of?
For most of us, our minds go to a strong stomach and “6-pack abs”.
While the “6-pack muscle” (the rectus abdominis) is important, it doesn’t make up the entire core! I would even argue that from a function and stability point of view, it’s actually the least important of the core muscles!
In order to truly have a “strong core” we should focus not only on the muscles in our stomach, but our sides (obliques) and lower back (quadrates lumborum and spinal erectors) as well.
I usually go even one step further with my patients and clients and recommend exercises that strengthen the hip muscles as well. This provides a strong, stable platform on top of which the core can operate.
HOW TO STRENGTHEN YOUR CORE
Strengthening your core comes from consistently performing resisted exercises everyday that will strengthen these important stabilizing muscle groups.
And that’s exactly what I wanted to present to you in this video today!
I’ve taken 9 of my favorite core exercises and divided them into 3 categories:
1. Anterior Exercises: for your abs and front of your hips
2. Lateral Exercises: for your obliques and hip abductors
3. Posterior Exercises: for your spinal erectors and glutes
I’ve further broken these categories down into “beginner”, “intermediate”, and “advanced” options so surely there’s something that will meet your unique strength and ability level.
⭐️ HOW TO USE THE EXERCISES IN THIS VIDEO⭐️
Select the exercise from each category (anterior, lateral, and posterior) that is best suited to your strength and ability level and perform those three exercises daily.
Once you can perform 3 sets of 10-12 reps with good form and minimal fatigue, try to progress to the next level of exercises.
