It Supports Better Posture

Your core isn't just your "six-pack" ab muscles at the front of your body, says Pachnos — it actually wraps around your entire torso, including muscles in your sides and back. So when all of your core muscles are stronger, particularly your inner core muscles that attach to your spine, it helps you better keep yourself upright with good posture .
