Even though most of us can't see them, our Abs very much exist! Core exercises are often neglected because
A. The person isn't exercising in general
B. The person is exercising but avoiding too challenging of movements
C. The person wants to "wait to loose the weight" first (since abs are hidden under fat anyway)
Are you guilty? It's ok! You work you are core ALL THE TIME just in daily living. Any physical activity depends on stable core muscles. It's the foundation of your strength, balance, and posture! Core strength also protects your back and prevents injury. We want to focus on the core to build strength and flexibility not only to increase fitness performance, but to make our daily living easier for now and the future. Here are 3 don'ts and 3 do's for you!
Don't focus on achieving a six pick - abs will develop naturally as you strengthen the core and eat properly.
Don't beat yourself up if you can barely do a sit up - you must start somewhere- focus on baby steps and improvement.
Don't go fast! Have control. Feel the core working.
DO remember- QUALITY over QUANTITY!
DO embrace the burn (that's how you know it's working!)
