I know you probably don't love doing core exercises, but if you want a healthy, strong body they need to be part of your exercise routine. If you sit at a desk most of your day, here are some great exercises you can do throughout the day (who cares what people think!!) If it's too hard for you to get down to the ground to exercise you can still strengthen your core with these exercises done in a chair.
Need some extra motivation? Listen to what the Harvard Health Publications has to say about our core:
"Think of your core muscles as the sturdy central link in a chain connecting your upper and lower body. Whether you’re hitting a tennis ball or mopping the floor, the necessary motions either originate in your core, or move through it.
No matter where motion starts, it ripples upward and downward to adjoining links of the chain. Thus, weak or inflexible core muscles can impair how well your arms and legs function. And that saps power from many of the moves you make. Properly building up your core cranks up the power. A strong core also enhances balance and stability. Thus, it can help prevent falls and injuries during sports or other activities. In fact, a strong, flexible core underpins almost everything you do:"
