Benefits of a Stronger CoreAbby
Your core includes your back, shoulders, chest, sides, hips, pelvis, buttock muscles and the abdominal muscles. The core forms a sturdy bridge that links your upper and lower body. Similar to the trunk of a tree, your core muscles need to be strong, but always flexible. A weak or inflexible core (due to internal scar tissue formation) will drain you of your energy, making you susceptible to injury.
No matter where movement begins, it ripples upward and downward through the core. That means a strong, flexible core is vital in everything you do.
Everyday Activities – Even the most basic activities of daily living, like bathing or dressing, call on your core muscles.
The Work Place – No matter the task, whether lifting, twisting or typing, a strong core makes for good posture. Good posture prevents injuries and makes you look and feel younger.
A Healthy Back – Low back pain can be prevented with core exercises such as: Yoga, Core Master Twisting, Rebounding and Core Vibration.
Sports and Other Activities – All athletic activities are powered by a strong core, even sexual activity requires core power and flexibility.
Housework and Gardening – Lifting, bending, twisting, carrying, hammering, reaching, mopping, vacuuming, and dusting all rely on a strong core.
Bathroom – Without a strong core your large intestine will sit limp within your pelvis and you will need to push to have a bowel movement. This will cause hemorrhoids and may even cause a hernia.
Balance and Stability – When you begin to lose your balance or become unstable, look to core exercises that will create a strong foundation and restore your balance as well.
Good Posture – Poor posture leads to injury, creates wear and tear on the spine and interferes with your breathing. Shallow breathing is shallow living. Good posture from a strong core projects confidence and prevents both injury and muscle pain.
When exercising, if your main focus is on your abdominal muscles, you will create an imbalance in your hips and back muscles. This can lead to injuries and reduce your athletic ability. This is where whole core exercises for strengthening, lengthening and toning are essential. Your core muscles are responsible for all your body’s strength, including your arms and legs. I have seen countless people at the gym with a weak core and no matter how much they work their arms and legs they do not achieve their desired affects.
Your core is everything. It houses your digestive tract, liver, pancreas, stomach, lungs and heart, but most importantly; the Mother of All Organs, your Large Intestine. You will never reap the rewards U deserve in your exercises if your focus is only on the External Core and not the Internal Core, composed of your organs. When your organs lack tone and stagnate with waste, you will be kissing more then your butt goodbye. You know the roll that is hanging over your belt; well that is the Mother of All Organs, your Large Intestine in a comatose state. How’s that for down and out? For the ins and outs on this very intoxicating topic please read The Scoop on Your Poop and The Domino Effect of Acidosis.
But, as we have seen time and time again, when we restore our core externally but not internally the aging process goes into high gear and the Poop hits the fan and causes us to lose more than just muscle mass and strength. We lose our Health.
Your core abdominal muscles play a major role in some of your most important bodily functions, such as breathing, vomiting, coughing, urination and excretion. Do you experience two, 5-7 inch long bowel movements a day without grunting, with the feeling of complete elimination? If no, then you have entered The Domino Effect of Acidosis. How many times have you heard this one? “I just bent over to pick up something and snap went my back…” or “I reached for my pills and my back went out…” The rest of this story is: There’s no more core, it has fallen on the floor.
