Many people have heard that strengthening their core muscles is beneficial when it comes to alleviate back pain, but did you know that there are many other benefits to having a strong core? Here is a look at just a few:
- Improved Posture: Your core wraps around your entire torso, including your sides and your back. Therefore, strong core muscles will help you stay upright and improve your posture. Strengthening your inner core muscles is particularly helpful in this regard.
- Increased Stability: A strong core also makes it easier for you to hold steady whenever you are engaging in an activity, resulting in improved stability. This, in turn, helps to reduce your risk of muscle injuries while working out as well as while engaging in everyday activities.
- Improved Balance: Having strong core muscles also helps to improve your balance. After all, you are working from a body base that is more solid, which means it is easier for you to stay upright and steady on the ground. It also makes it easier for you to recover if you stumble.
- Organ Protection: A strong core helps to protect your organs, including your spleen, liver and kidneys, all of which are right beneath your abdominal wall. Your core muscles act as a shield against outside forces, thereby helping to protect these organs from external forces and damage.
