It’s time to talk core…and core workouts!
Now: when we say “core,” we’re don’t mean six packs. Your core encompasses the muscles of your back, sides, pelvis, and hips – all key to balance and stability in cardio and in daily life. You core strength supports posture and overall long-term physical health, and it’s extra super important now, when most of us spend waaaaaayyyy too much time sitting at desks or hunched over computers.
