Benefits Of Core Training
The most important benefits of Core Stability Training, however, come in the form of injury prevention. A weak core can contribute to a lot of issues when it comes to poor form in exercises, and deadlifting, squatting or even cycling with poor posture can lead to debilitating injuries. Core Stability Training can help to prevent these problems before they become serious.
There are a lot of different core exercises out there, but it is not necessary to perform them all. Most personal trainers and physiotherapists advocate that athletes perform exercises that reflect the stresses that are put on their body during day-to-day training. There is no need to engage in flashy, dangerous or complex exercises when you can do something much simpler and safer.
The front plank is one of the most basic core stability exercises, and it can be quite beneficial for people with niggling back issues as long as it is performed correctly. It is important to keep the core tense and activated during the plank. If you allow your core to sag, then you will not be getting the full benefit of the exercise and could even be doing more harm than good.
Efficient and regular core training can also form the foundation of your posture which is very important if you spend a lot of time at a desk, during sport, walking, running and just about every sporting activity you may embark on. Strong core equals stable body.
Ball exercises for the core involve just the ball and an exercise programme, so it’s very low cost to get started. Start off with a professional who understands the concept of training the core and how to get the best benefit from the ball. Don’t go it alone, be guided and attend a class at least once per week, that way your home training will remain correct for you.
