        Low Planks To Strengthen Your Core

        Low Planks To Strengthen Your Core

        The core of your body is your foundation and is what keeps you strong, flexible, and active. Planks help by strengthening the muscle groups of your core regions, thus boosting your overall body strength; especially you back muscles.

        The major muscle groups of your core include the:

        -Abdominus (Abs)

        -External Obliques (Next to the abs and below the ribcage)

        -Erector Spinae (Mid Back)

        Doing Planks regularly helps build your body’s high level of functional fitness while also reducing muscle strain and back pain. Having more control of your core improves your balance and gives you better posture.

        Add Planks to your workout to strengthen your core and back muscles.

        Partial Crunches To Strengthen Your Lower Back

        Partial Crunches To Strengthen Your Lower Back

        Partial crunches is a great exercise to strengthen your lower back and abdominal muscles. All you need to do is to lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Use a padded mat for a little more comfort. Put your hands behind your neck or off to the sides of your head, and slowly lift your shoulders off the floor without using your hands or elbows. Breathe out as you raise from the floor and breathe in as you lie back down. When you raise your upper back off the mat, hold this position for about a second and then return all the way back down. This repetition will stretch and utilize your back muscles by supporting your upper weight. Make sure to avoid doing the exercise if or when you have acute back pain. Perform this exercise when you don’t have a backache or discomfort.

        Practicing this exercise in proper posture will build your back muscles to be stronger, thus making it easier for you to perform activities involving your back during your work routine.

        At home or at the gym, start practicing partial crunches. You’ll start feeling the difference.
