Updated: Dec 28, 2020
Deep core muscles include: Transverse abdominis, Diaphragm and Pelvic floor muscles
Superficial: External and Internal Obliques and Rectus abdominis.
What is the importance of proper core recruitment?
Prevention of back pain
Reduce pelvic pain
Proper load transfer to decrease risk of organ prolapse
Helps improve incontinence issues
Proper synergy between pelvic floor and diaphragm (internal pressure is more balanced).
Improvement in posture
Facilitates daily tasks due to increased strength and better posture/mechanics
Feeling and looking good!
Holy To-lido! Who knew that there were so many benefits of core strength?! It is time to get off that comfy chair and do some planks! Ha ha :)
