Our core is pretty much the brain of our human movement system. A strong core allows you to achieve optimum performance during training and helps prevent you from getting injured during exercises and activities and betters your balance during training. A weak core could lead to predictable patterns of injury and insufficient movement through out the body. So remember, if you're looking to improve your over all functional performance during your work out keeping your core tight will allow you to have a more productive workout.

We all want to feel the burn when working out, but what about the shakes? I'm not talking about feeling dizzy from not eating enough or from coming up too fast after doing a forward bend. When your body is working really hard, either holding a challenging position or toward the end of a set, your muscles start to unintentionally quiver.
I have mentioned on more than one occasion( I tend to be a broken record....... sorry) that the core is SO MUCH more that just the six pack muscles.
Although a six pack/slim mid section looks great, how the core performs functions in our everyday life is much more important. Because if it is not bad things can happen.
