Core stability / core work should be the fundamental aspect of any woman’s exercise plan.
The research continually shows that weak or underactive core muscles increases your risk of injury and increases your risk of lower back pain and dysfunction.
Women have a greater range of motion than men around their hips. But with that greater range of motion comes natural instability which highlights your need to do regular core work.
If you run or play a sport then core work becomes even more important. Injuries are incredibly frustrating so aim to do core work 3-4 times per week.
If you are running to lose weight then core work is of PARAMOUNT importance.
Commonly people start running when wanting to lose weight, but within 6-8 weeks often get injured which completely hampers their progress and is incredibly demotivating.
So, get going on your core work today!
