For people who lead a life of fitness, core strength is nothing new. They work at it day in day out at the gym. However, the term has been floated around a lot in recent times.
There are lots of people asking for the new core exercise or the new workout equipment that will give them results. If core strength has become as much of a fad as fidget spinners, you can’t really point a finger at anyone because core muscles take their sweet time to develop and define. Ask anyone who has been to the gym and they will tell you that toning your abs is not so easy. It needs determination, focus, consistency and a little diversity in your workouts.
Core training is important for two main reasons; a more athletic look and spine support which gives you more balance and flexibility. Core exercises will have you doing some almost impossible yoga poses like it’s nothing. Strengthening the core is not just about abs though-it involves a number of muscles such as back muscles, glutes and the whole region connecting to your spinal cord.
