Fire Up Your Core

Introduction
If you weaken the center of any freestanding structure it becomes unstable. Eventually, everyday wear-and-tear takes its toll, causing the structure to buckle under pressure. This is exactly what happens when the core muscles are weak – it compromises your body’s ability to support the frame properly.
In recent years, there has been a lot of buzz about the importance of a
strong core – and there is a valid reason for this. The core is where all of thepowerful movements in the body originate – so it can essentially be thought of as your “center of power.”
When most people hear the term “core,” they automatically think of the
abdominals. But the core is more complex than having a great “six pack.”
This section of the body consists of several different muscles that work
simultaneously to provide a solid base of support for the upper and lower body.
