The core muscles protect and support the lower back and make the entire body strong. Therefore a strong core is vital in gaining strength elsewhere in the body and also in the prevention of injury. Core training is especially important after child birth, where the demands on pregnancy can take its toll on the female body.
Strength training is important for everyone, it doesn’t mean that you are going to “get massive”, but it is a key component in all exercise programmes. Strength training has shown to not only improve strength, increase metabolism, reduce body fat, strengthen bones, but also decreases blood pressure, improve posture and slow down the body’s aging process.
