Many people confuse the term “core” and think it is the same as “abs”, but these are in fact quite different. The core is a larger term and involves the abs, glutes (butt), lower back muscles, and hips.
These muscles are important stabilizers of the whole body. By training, you won’t only have stronger and stabilized core muscles but you will also improve your body posture, reduce low back pain, improve the athletic performance and avoid certain injuries.
Plus, you will help yourself in the everyday tasks such as lifting, bending, picking up something and many other. So, do not wait and start some training at the very moment.
