February 15, 2019

Do you know which core muscles are which?

Developing your core muscles doesn’t simply provide you with the “6-pack” that everyone wants to have, it can provide you with the support you need to lift heavy weights, twist and rotate during athletic movements, and protect your back during exercise. Before you get to work on it, make sure you know how to recognize your core muscles.
