Benefits of Core Stabilization

November 15th, 2018 | in Physiotherapy White Rock


Despite being an important part of any exercise program, core exercises – such as planks and sit ups – are often neglected. Core stabilization is important to implement into your regular workout routine for a number of reasons, including the following.

Increased Stability

Training your core helps teach your back, hips, pelvis and abdomen to work together. When your core is working properly, you will experience better balance and stability overall in your body. Not only can this help with activities and sports, but can provide some relief in your day-to-day life.

Overall Strength

A strong core is beneficial to your daily life. Every thing you do – from bending over to lifting – can be made easier with a strong core. Additionally, weak core muscles can lead to poor posture resulting in back pain. Keeping your core muscles strong can help with some daily back pains that you may experience.

Toned Body

If you’re looking to achieve a toned, athletic look for your body, core exercises can help strengthen and tone underlying muscles to help achieve your body goals.

No Cost Involved

Core exercises are simple and don’t require a fancy gym membership to do. You can work your core anywhere – from your living room to the break room at work. Exercises like planks and sit ups don’t require any equipment to do.

Implementing a good core workout into your exercise regime is as important as any other muscle group. To keep your fitness and body goals on track, be sure to include core strength exercises into your regular workout routine.
