Four Reasons You Need to Do The Core Workout

Each week on the FitFaithLife Instagram page we share a Wednesday Workout. This week’s workout was The Core Workout.  So, I am sharing Four Reasons You Need to Do The Core Workout. Core workouts target the muscles in your abdominals, lower back, and glutes. They provide power, stability and endurance. A strong core is the foundation of functional fitness.

REASON 1: Core Workouts Build Balance and Stability

Most physical activities require the use of your core muscles. A weak core makes you susceptible to injury, a weak back and back pain. By doing exercises that build your core, you will enhance your balance stability, which is important as we grow older.

REASON 2: Core Workouts Can Help You Get Flat Abs

Your abdominal muscles are only a part of the muscle group that make up your core. However, there are several core exercises that target your abs and along with a healthy, balanced diet, can help you achieve flatter abs.

REASON 3: Core Workouts Can Be Done Anywhere

Most core exercises do not require any equipment and they can be done anywhere. Exercises like planks and Supermans, only require enough space to lay on your stomach or side.   The Glute Bridge is another classic core exercise. They can be done inside or outside without having to make many adjustments.

REASON 4: Core Workouts Can Help You Reach Your Overall Wellness Goals

Core exercises really should be the foundation of your exercise regime.  The exercises not only tone your abdominals, but they tighten your glutes and legs and strengthen your back.  If you are an athlete training for an event or someone who is striving to live a healthier life, adding these simple but effective exercises to your workouts will yield quick results if you are consistent.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I need to do more core work. I have lower back issues that makes core work hard sometimes. But I also know that having a stronger core will probably help my lower back. I am working on closing my diastsis recti gap and certain exercises make it worse. My core is by far my weakest part of my body.
    1. You're welcome! That sounds painful. I'm sure there are some modifications that you can do to strengthen your core and not cause you pain. I will definitely be praying for your healing!
