Your core is of central importance! It is the key link connecting your upper and lower body and has a pivotal impact on how well your arms and legs function too. A strong core builds up strength and enhances balance and stability which are essential in preventing falls and injuries. Your core is key for many everyday living activities like bathing, dressing, housework, or bending down to tie your shoes. You are even engaging your core when you are sitting at your desk for hours on end! Did you know that lower back pain can be prevented by engaging in exercises that strengthen your core?
