From Wikipedia: In anatomy, the core refers, in its most general of definitions, to the body minus the legs and arms. Functional movements are highly dependent on the core, and lack of core development can result in a predisposition to injury. The major muscles of the core reside in the area of the belly and the mid and lower back (not the shoulders), and peripherally include the hips, the shoulders and the neck.

Overall athletes can benefit from core training because it is our foundation for nearly all your movements. Having a strong and stable foundation improves efficiency when you run, jump, lift, and more. You increase your power, and also reduce your chance of injury. Let’s get stronger!
