Activate Your Core Muscles using These Excercise

The fantasy of lean abs and tight center muscles is a typical wellness dream for both men and ladies. Be that as it may, it’s difficult to accomplish on the off chance that one side of your muscles is working harder than the other – or more awful, you’re encountering muscle torment.

The center, included the storage compartment and spine, gives backing and adjustment to all developments. At whatever time we curve, turn, twist around at the abdomen, or hold our body in one position for a drawn out stretch of time, our center is grinding away.

The way you sit and your posture (tendency to slouch) are just a couple of the reasons that can cause core problems. It is a highly sensitive area, meaning that an issue affecting the neck may reverberate down the spine or vice versa.

If your core isn’t working properly, other areas that are not meant to handle such stress end up compensating and suffering in the process. This commonly manifests itself in back aches, especially lower back pain.

Core Issues and Exercises

Imagine picking up a box. Yes, we all know that we are supposed to lift with our legs, but this cannot be done unless our stomach is tight and stabilized, so that we can lift with our legs.

Even when working out, you may notice that it is easier to do a sit up on side of your body than the other, which can result in uneven definition of the oblique muscles.

The core is also constantly at work during a variety of sports, including golf, tennis, ice hockey and baseball. Athletes put so much emphasis on rotating their trunk to one side that they are unable to move fluidly or at all. It has “shut off” because it has been overworked.

In order to avoid such issues, try these exercises that target the core muscles to help keep them even and balanced:

# Lower Abdominal Cross

  • Lie flat on your back with your left side next to a wall.
  • Bend the right knee and cross it over the other leg, so that your right foot is on the ground next to the wall.
  • Very slowly, move your right thigh across your body until your knee touches the wall. Your right hip should be several inches off the floor at this point, and you should feel your lower abdominal muscle contracting.
  • For additional resistance, push your knee into the wall.
  • Hold the position for six seconds and repeat six times on each side, resting for a few seconds in between sets.

# Trunk Rotation

  • Sit on the floor with your back straight and legs flat out in front of you. (Note: If you are unable to do this, try sitting straight in a chair with your knees bent.)
  • Cross your arms across your chest, and rotate your trunk 45 degrees to the right. (You should feel your abdomen contract on the right side.)
  • Hold the position for six seconds.
  • For additional resistance, continue to rotate your trunk while a partner gently pushes your left shoulder toward the neutral position.
  • Repeat six times on each side, resting for a few seconds in between sets. Increase the amount of rotation with each set.

# Back Twist

  • Lie flat on your back with your left side next to a wall. Keep legs straight.
  • Keeping legs together, angle them slightly to the left side (about 10 degrees).
  • Rotate your left leg only inward as far as you can.
  • Hold the position for six seconds and repeat six times on each side, resting for a few seconds in between sets. Increase the amount of rotation with each set.

Important note for all exercises: If pain or cramping occurs, decrease the level of difficulty or stop.
