Why you should strengthen your core muscles

When you think of core strength, imagine a flat stomach and six-pack of abs? Then it’s time for us to change your perspective. Because a strong core has many more advantages. Everything from everyday tasks such as putting on socks, tying shoelaces, weight lifting and fitness training – all this requires your core muscles. The stronger they are built, the better you will perform. So let’s go deeper into the subject and find out what really lies behind a good set of abdominal muscles.

Core muscles include the rectus abdominis, inner and external oblique, the erector spinae and the pelvic floor muscles. They form the central connection between your upper and lower body and are responsible for ensuring the stability of the spine and pelvis. The core muscles are essential for the movement of energy from the larger to the smaller parts of the body and therefore, as you can imagine, play an important role in sports.

Having a strong core will not only affect your SitUp record. It can also have a positive effect on your physical well-being. Some of the benefits of core training:

  • Stabilize lower back
  • Improvement of balance, coordination, posture and brain performance
  • Improving flexibility
  • Run faster

Why it’s important to have a strong booty – besides looking good

Strong booty = strong core = strong back

The two A’s protect your back – your abs and your ass. It’s not possible to succeed at one without winning with the others. As a consequence of many hours of sitting, many people suffer from poor posture. Tight, shortened hip flexors, weak, over strechted hip extensors and glutes (booty) that forget how to activate properly all contribute to the most commonly observed postural deviations: swayback and kyphosis-lordosis.

A strong booty support your lower back. When your booty is not strong enough to perform their hip extension function, muscles that weren’t designed for the function will take over. Over time, these other muscles may become overstrained, resulting in pain and compression in the lumbar spine, hips and kees.

Because your booty muscles are also hip stabilizer, weak glutes can result in poor position of the enitre lower body, leaving you vulnerable to injuries like anterior cruciate ligament sprains (ACL), shin splints, tears and iliotibial (IT) band syndrome.

Protect your knees, lower back, hips and ankles by strengthening your booty muscles with this workout.

The gluteal muscles is the biggest human muscle and is capable of generating enormous power. This power can be transformed into speed, acceleration, vertical distance and endurance. Training the booty to extend powerfully and move body forwards is key to improving your ability to jump and run.
