The power of the core
The core is the central pillar of our body. The stronger it is, the more strain we can endure and the better we can perform. It is made up of the chest, abdomen, back and pelvis. The core muscles comprise a large number of small muscles that support the body and keep it in position. These include: the back and abdominal muscles as well as some of the thigh and gluteal muscles. A strong core improves our coordination and balance. It gives us strength and protects us against back problems, poor posture and pain in our musculoskeletal system – important when we’re playing sport or just going about our daily lives.
