You’ve likely often heard your annoying personal trainer friend preaching to you about engaging your core, but, the truth is, there are few activities that we actively engage in on a daily basis that incorporate our core stabilizer muscles.
You can think of your core as essentially your torso and all of the muscles involved therein. Below Scorca Chiropractic Center goes over a few activities you can start doing that will help you engage your core muscles, which will help you strengthen and protect your back, neck, and spine.
Paddleboarding is a fun, scenic, and rigorous activity that constitutes a total body workout. The act of paddling yourself forces you to rotate back and forth, which will give you an excellent core workout quite fast.
There are certain types of yoga that you can do that will be a core-strengthening workout for you. Seek out the poses and routines that incorporate your core muscles and go from there! Do your yoga outdoors to get some much-needed vitamin D and fresh air.
3.) Engage in Deep Breathing
Engaging in deep breathing exercises, and even laughing often, actually engages your core more than you think. It’s a great way to cross off the mind, body, and spirit boxes!
