The Importance of Activating Your Core Muscles

Contrary to widely held belief, having a six- pack is different from having a strong core. These are completely different muscle groups with separate functions in your body. Your core is at the centre of your body, it consists of your abdominal, pelvic, hip, back, and chest muscles.

Your core stabilizes your body, allowing you to move in any direction with balance and control. It helps prevent you from falling and allows you remain upright.

You can think of your core muscles as the sturdy central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body. Therefore, having a strong core is essential to everyone because it allows your body to function properly.
