💪🏽 Core exercises can prevent postural imbalances, can improve total body strength, assist in improving athletic performance, and can help in preventing degeneration of bones and ligaments.🦴
🏋️♂️ Here are 3 good core exercises to assist with fitness goals:
👉🏼 Plank jumps- Good for upper/lower body strength and building stability of abdominals, the pelvis, and trunk endurance. You may want to modify this if shoulder or lumbar problems exist.
👉🏼 Plank jacks- Good for overall trunk and extremity strengthening. Abdominals must be controlled during this activity as to avoid tension within the low back.
👉🏼 Swiss ball curl up- Good exercise for strengthening of the core required for trunk movements.
🏋️♂️ Of course low back pain can be complex and exercises are just one part of an overall strategy in eliminating low back pain.
