Give your core muscles a little TLC!
They work SUPER HARD for you all day, every day. But most of us don’t give our core muscles the attention they deserve – and when we DO think about them, it’s probably about how they look.
Well, here’s something eye-opening…
Your core muscles:
- Form the basis of basically EVERY movement you make, day and night.
- They keep your spine safe and stable as you move your arms and legs.
- They help you keep your balance.
- They power your breathing,
- Support your organs, and
- Keep you standing and sitting tall.
When they are out of whack, you can get headaches, neck aches, and low back pain (80% of us will suffer from back pain at some point!).
You also can feel stiff and sore, tired, or have a hard time turning your head in either direction – plus, having weak core muscles can make you feel older than you actually are.
The problem is that for many of us, these muscles are out of balance because of the everyday things we do (or don’t do).
- Sitting slouched in front of a laptop, or sitting too much,
- Walking hunched over a phone, and
- Sleeping in not-so-optimal positions (i.e., curled up in a ball)
So … what can you do about it?
We are going to take a deep dive into CORE STRENGTH this month and explore the hows and whys of making your core stronger.
And it all starts with a little assignment for you …
