Picking up the grandchildren takes strength, stability and balance. Having a strong core allows you to do that.
As we discussed last week, the Rectus abdominis are the “six pack” muscles. Together with the Transverse abdominis muscles, they protect your spine and help with sitting up and bending over. Strengthening these muscles are vitally important to making everyday tasks doable and easy.
The plank is a core exercise that develops and strengthens the Rectus abdominis and the Transverse abdominis muscles.
