Core Strength !

While cardiovascular activity is essential to good health, muscle strength is important too !!

– The core muscles around your trunk and pelvis help your lower back, hips and abdominal muscles work together to increase balance and stability.

– Having strong core muscles can reduce lower back pain and make everyday activities easier, including your comfort level while working at your desk.

– Cater to your core muscles this week with some strengthening activities. Many can be done at home without any special equipment. Be sure to use proper posture to reap the most benefits.

Here are three core exercises to start you off !!

1. Plank
This will target all of your abs. With this exercise you want to hold the plank for 1 minute. Break 30 seconds and repeat. Total reps : 3

2. V-Sit Up
The v sit up is an effective exercise for developing the abs, and is performed by extending the arms and legs, then crunching up to bring them all together.

3. Bicycle Crunch
The most effective ab exercises start with the bicycle, which is the best move for targeting the rectus abdominis (i.e., the ‘six pack’) and the obliques (the waist).
