Giving your Body a Boost
The core is one of the slowest regions of the body to show measurable gain. Crunches are perhaps the most thought of exercise when it comes to quickly, “getting a ripped stomach,” but there is so much more benefit the core has to offer than just great looks. Focusing on building the core for stability and strength as opposed to seeking a rock hard six-pack will improve your overall well-being. Here are some of the benefits to be reaped from a more stable core:
- Better posture: helping you sit up and stand up straighter
- Better balance: the core stabilizes you and allows you to keep balance on any terrain
- Dealing with forces better: allowing your body to absorb and transfer forces without doing damage.
- Better resistance to injury from movement: twisting, bending, dipping and lifting all utilize muscles in the core.
- Reduced low back pain
- Improved breathing
Everyday acts are made easier with a strong core. Whether you intend to rehabilitate an existing or recently-sustained injury, or simply seek to prevent damage to the back by building a resilient core, we can help you plan and implement your fitness goals. Every fitness plan should be unique to the individual and it can never hurt to have a professional opinion. Give our office a call to schedule an appointment today!
