Core Meltdown: Exercises For a Powerful Core

The core muscles are located in the abdominals and lower back. The core itself is more or less a new-age term that bodybuilders in past decades never used. As physical training evolved, the importance of the core was recognized. Physical trainers have begun to see how the body stabilizes and itself and where much of a person’s power comes from. Yes, from the core. Here are a few exercises for a stronger core.

Deadlifts

This is the prime exercise for a strong lower back. The important thing to note when performing deadlifts is that you have to engage your core and keep a straight back. Not only does a deadlift strengthen your back, but it also works out almost every other body part, including your wrists.

Russian Twists

Russian Twists are exercises that work the obliques of the abdominal muscles as well as the abdominals themselves. By twisting the body and engaging the sides and lower abs, you can harden the core and take one step closer to the abs you’ve always wanted.

Planks

No matter the variation, planks are always amazing core exercises. Holding your body in a plank position tenses shoulder, arms, chest, legs, and of course, core muscles. If you’ve gotten stronger and an ordinary plank bores you, then there are many other ways to spice up the exercise.
