Swiss ball which is also called the Stability ball was originally created in 1960's as a means to provide instability and resistance by challenging and engaging "CORE" muscles, therefore, improving balance, strength and flexibility. The use of stability balls started out in a clinical setting as a tool to rehab patients from injuries. Unstable surface training merged its way into gym settings and quickly gained popularity in the fitness world, as a means to build strength, flexibility, improve posture along with the excitement of exercise selection.

Let me start off by saying that the title is a bit of a misnomer. I’ll certainly talk about how to strengthen your abs and the muscles found around your mid-section but the core is so much more than that. The core is really made up of any muscle that connects to the pelvis to help stabilize the lumbo-pelvic-hip region. It’s also made up of all the muscles that stabilize the spine. Given that, I’m sure you would be surprised when I tell you that even the hamstrings, quadriceps, lat muscles and butt muscles are all muscles of the core.

Train With True
One of my favorite basketball coaches had a phrase "fake hustle" he loved to use.  If you're into sports you've seen it before.  It's the guy that lackadaisically dives after a ball after it's ALREADY gone out of bounds.  It's the guy that misses an easy layup and commits a foul on the very next possession trying to make up for it.  How about the guy that botches the play drawn up in the last time out, then feigns an ankle sprain and looks at the bench like "Coach, I need a sub!"?

Training with Rebecca Bennett
The best way to firm up and tone your body is through conditioning and resistance training. You can do this using bodyweight and weights. If you don’t have a specific goal of increasing strength or muscular endurance, but just want to feel tighter and look better, then the specific rep (repetition) range that you should be lifting should be between 8-12 reps. Now that doesn’t mean you lift just any weight for that many reps.

Strengthening your core is fundamental to building a healthy, safe exercise regimen. Core exercises strengthen the entire body, particularly the pelvic floor, hip, and lower back. Crunches, reverse crunches, oblique cross over crunches, plank, butt lifts are some examples of this type of exercise. They improve flexibility and strengthen the entire body, reduce lower back problems, and promote breathing and lung capacity. These exercises focus on the deep abdominal muscles. Core exercises strengthen and flatten your abs making your body look better.

PROTECTING THE LOWER BACKYou have probably heard the term “engage your core” as it pertains to performing a specific exercise or movement. But what does that really mean?
