🔥 4 GREAT EXERCISES TO TARGET YOUR CORE
✅ 4 great core exercises that you can include in your workout. Many of you wanted me to post this up, so there you guys go!!
✅ The core muscles, very often confused for the abs only., but in reality, they include the pelvic floor muscles, the transversus abdominis, multifidus, internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis, erector spinae (sacrospinalis) especially the longissimus thoracis, and the diaphragm.
The lumbar muscles, quadratus Lumborum (deep portion), deep rotators, as well as cervical muscles, rectus capitus anterior and lateralis, longus coli may also be considered members of the core group, while minor core muscles include the latissimus dorsi, gluteus maximus, and trapezius.
🚨 So yeah, when it comes to strengthening your “core”, simply doing crunches won’t cut it.
Core conditioning improves posture, which even contributes to a better appearance. Moreover, developing core muscle strength can boost the effectiveness of workouts and reduce the risk of injuries that sideline our efforts to stay in shape. ⏩ While there are many other exercises that you could do, these are definitely great. And you should definitely give them a shot.
💡 Personally I’d opt for 3-5 sets of 10-15 reps for each exercise. You can always start at a smaller amount of work and build it up as you progress.
