The Importance of Core Strength

The Importance of Core Strength

Before we dive into how important our core is, we want to know:

When was the last time you gave your core muscles a little TLC?

They work SUPER HARD for you all day, every day. But most of us don’t give them the attention they deserve – and when we DO think about them, it’s probably about how they look. 

 

Well, here’s something eye-opening: 

 

Your Core Muscles:

  • Form the basis of basically EVERY movement you make, day and night.
  • They keep your spine safe and stable as you move your arms and legs.
  • They help you keep your balance.
  • They power your breathing.
  • They support your organs.
  • They keep you standing and sitting tall.

When your core muscles are out of whack, you can get headaches, neck aches, and low back pain (80% of us will suffer from back pain at some point!). 

 

You also can feel stiff and sore, tired, or have a hard time turning your head in either direction – plus, having weak core muscles can make you feel older than you actually are.

 

The problem is that for many of us, these muscles are out of balance because of the everyday things we do (or don’t do). 

  • Sitting slouched in front of a laptop, or sitting too much.
  • Walking hunched over a phone.
  • Sleeping in not-so-optimal positions (i.e., curled up in a ball).

So … what can you do about it?

 

Start with this little assignment...

Every time you look at your phone today, think about your POSTURE! Sitting or standing tall helps keep those muscles in balance. Plus, it can improve your breathing AND your energy level.

 

Give it a try and let me know how it goes.

It’s the simple things we do every day that can have the biggest impact on how we feel!
