The amazing benefits of core stability

Often overlooked, core stability training is a vital aspect of your exercise routine if you want to be performing at your peak. When incorporated into a structured routine, core stability exercises can help improve muscular control and reduce the likelihood of injuries.

It is the core that is the basis for all movements and the strength or weakness of your core will dictate the control and fluidity of your athletic movements.

Benefits of having core stability

Core stability training is essential to enhance sports performance and prevent injury for all active people, not just the top athletes. The body’s core muscles are the foundation for all other movement and therefore their role in rehab and injury prevention is very important. The muscles of the torso stabilize the spine and provide a solid foundation for movement.

The four biggest benefits associated with core training are how it enables a more functional rehab that translates into daily life activities, it improves performance in sports and other physical activities, it reduces the risk of injury and best of all, it improves your ability to function each day.

How to improve your core stability

Core stability training is easy to add into the exercise routine that you are already doing. An excellent way to strengthen your core is by undertaking Pilates. It mobilises and strengthens every muscle and joint in your whole body. Training your core stability will improve any previous injuries present in your back, neck, knee, hips, shoulders and feet and ankles.
