The Functions of Core Muscles

The Functions of Core Muscles

  1. The core determines a large part of a person’s posture.
  2. The core muscles align the spine, rib cage, and pelvis of a person to resist a specific force, whether static or dynamic.
  3. Core exercises train the muscles in the pelvis, lower back, hips and abdomen to work in harmony.
  4. This leads to better balance and stability, whether performing recreational or daily activities.
  5. Functional Movements are highly dependent on this part of the body, and lack of core muscular development can result in a predisposition to injury.
