Benefits of Core Training
By, Jen Delgado
The significant benefits of core training follow through to whatever you are involved in, because the area around your trunk and pelvis is where your center of gravity is located. A strong core gives you:
• Better posture
• More control
• Improved, more powerful performance
• Injury prevention and rehabilitation
• Increased protection and “bracing” for your back
• A more stable center of gravity
• A more stable platform for sports movements
When you have good core stability, the muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen work together. They provide support to your spine and help transmit increased power and performance for just about any activity. A weak core makes you susceptible to lower back pain, poor posture and a whole host of muscle injuries. Strong core muscles provide the brace of support needed to help prevent such pain and injury and this discovery is why core training has become so popular among elite athletes.
Other benefits include a toned torso and abs and a healthy and flexible lower back. Your lower ab muscles are drawn in towards the spine to help you sit up straight, improving your posture. Core training is an intelligent training structure, because it strengthens weak muscles and imbalances from the inside out. Core stability exercises boost performance by building up weak areas and help to avoid a variety of injuries, especially those involving the back, groin, hamstrings and knee. The reason most athletes skip or sometimes avoid on this vital part of their workout is because the benefits are simply overlooked. Core stability training, while presenting the performance advantages to most athletes, it must be approached in the right way. With the popularity of pilates and yoga and other core muscle exercise programs the far-reaching benefits of this kind of training has become well known. Plus, the best thing of it all if having great abs!!!
