Tip Of The Day

Back to the core!! (no pun intended) Your core is not just the Rectus Abdominus (the part that gives the "6 pack" look). The core is all of the muscles that wrap around your spine and organs to provide support to and movement of the trunk as well as to assist in breathing. The muscles are connected at various points along the ribs, hips and spine. The core also includes the deeper internal muscles (Transverse Abdomiuns and Obliques) as well as the surface muscles you can see. So to sum it up, the core is not only the front of your stomach. Don't forget to exercise your sides and your back in addition to the front, so you gain a balanced core and perfect posture.
