Why core muscle strength is so important?

A strong core helps keep a more upright and erect posture. The core muscles play a huge role in everyday activities like getting out of bed, walking in the market, going to the job etc. So, core muscles are the base of support for the entire body.

Core muscles are found in the obliques, abdominals, lower back and glutes. These four areas of the body are the ones that usually make the posture of a person.so, if the core muscles are physically powerful, they will maintain the balance of the body and will stabilize the system every time the person is working out and moving.

Long hours of reading, working, typing or standing at a workbench take their toll. Acutually calcium deposits in the joints, complete the process of immobilisation. Once, this calcification takes place, nothing can be done to reverse it. As an example, if a person walks in short, slow steps, then mostly we think that the person is old. because the hunched posture gives the clue.

So, as the ageing, we have to take precautions, and older people can take action before it is too late.

The best activities are regular stretching exercises that stretch the muscles and improve the flexibility of the core muscles.

The main responsibility of the core muscles is to provide enough power to the body to enable the physical activity that a person encounters.

So, many fitness workers believe that it is very important to strengthen the core muscles more than other muscles in the body. Strong core muscles can lessen a lot of health problems concerning posture.

Regular stretching exercise surrounds and supports the spine and pelvis and connects the body and lower body, effectively transferring forces from one to the other.

A strong core is very important for our posture. The ab muscles play a dominant role in the movement of every plane of motion as forward and backwards, rotational and left and right positions.

A weak core is the number one risk for potential injuries, especially lower back injuries.

So, Research shows that core strength training can help alleviate lower back pain.

Working on core strengths has numerous benefits from improved posture, balance and movement to pain management and injury prevention.

There are some major functions of the core muscles –

1) contains and protects the internal organs

2) stabilize the top part of the body over the bottom part

3) ensures greater mobility of the spine and trunk

4) control the pelvic-lumbar relationship

So, now we need to do exercise daily.
