I signed up at my gym for a half-hour core program 3X per week. What will I be doing and how will it help me? (Isabella, Freeport).

Here are the basics of a core program. Hopefully, your class will address:

  • Abdominal exercises
  • Lower back exercises
  • Glute exercises
  • Muscles that stabilize the hips
  • Deep inner muscles which help support the spine
As a result, you will experience an improvement with: Flexion Bending forward movement, Extension Bending backwards and Rotation Side to side turns. A core workout will strengthen your personal movement patterns. The way you move in daily life will improve.
