Your core is about more than just your ab muscles — it’s your body’s powerhouse. Not only does it facilitate movement, but it also houses your inner organs and central nervous system.
In other words, it helps you do just about everything!
A simple but effective exercise for building core stability is to draw in the abdominal muscles (think about your belly button pulling away from your pantline), hold for five breaths, and then relax. Repeat 10 times, and do this 10 times a day. It really works!
