Here are some of the benefits for having strong and flexible core muscles.

Of course we all want a flat beautiful tummy, defined lines across our stomach and the ultimate 6 pack but putting all of that vanity to the side for just a moment there are other great benefits of having strong and flexible core muscles. Your core muscles are used everyday to help you stand-up, sit-up, sit down, pick something up, push something overhead, balance, reach side to side, reach overhead, walk, jog, run, hike, bike, walk stairs, play sports, clean the house, carry groceries,  you name it.  It doesn’t matter if you are a full-time house wife, a 9-5 office professional, an around the clock super mom, an outpatient recovering from surgery or  a professional athlete, core strength and flexibility is a necessity in your everyday life.  When you have strong and flexible core muscles you are able to complete your everyday movements and functions more effectively and with less risk of pain and injury.
