Core-blimey!

January 28, 2016

When most people talk about your "core" they are focusing on just the abs.

 

But there's so much more to core!

 

Abs = transverse abdominus, obliques and rectus abdominus, but what about the rest?

 

What you really should be thinking about is the entire torso and how it works as a team to stablise the body, spine and limbs. 

 

It's important not to forget the lower back muscles, the muscles around the shoulder blades and the glutes.

 

Meet the Core team:

 

Let's look at a full core workout:

 

 

Abs:  Swiss ball crunch, prime plank

Lower back: Back extension, reverse hyper-extension, 

Scapula & friends: Chin-ups, face-pulls

Glutes: Hip thrust

 

***For a full explanation of these exercises and how to make them right for you, just pop in and see me***

 

Put your attention on the rear chain of muscles at the back of the body as well as the abdominal muscles, to develop a strong and balanced core.
