Watch: Exercises to condition and strengthen your core
Working to condition and strengthen your core amps up your athletic agility and endurance, improves your posture and strengthens your lower back.
Your body’s “core” includes the muscles around your pelvis and those located in your lower back.
According to CoachMag conditioning and strength coach, Richard Tidmarsh, creating a strong core is beneficial for everyone as it helps align your hips and keep you balanced, resulting in good posture.
