What are the core muscles?

Core Muscle Diagram

The abdominal muscles (there are technically 4 “abdominal” muscles) are not the only core muscles. The core muscle team also includes muscles  of the low back, upper back, hip and pelvis. They all work together to support  the spine in proper alignment (good posture) also known as neutral spine.

A strong core will reduce risk of back injury/pain,  improve your balance, and improve your game!

What game? Any game, you name it: golf, tennis, baseball, swimming, running, football, basketball, hockey, soccer, skiing…you get the picture.
