Developing a strong core is a very important duty for those who want to be in awesome shape. The core supports your body and connects the lower body with the upper body. Having strong would help in other movements such as: squat, lunges, deadlift...

The core is not only based on smashing the abdominals but, on knowing how to train everything together and also strengthen the other muscles that are present: obliques, hip flexors, lower back or serratus.

So don't worry about doing a ton of crunches or sit-ups to crush the six-pack. Since this is not the key to having defined abs. This is a talk about another topic: body fat. (I already explained it in another post).

Focus on getting stronger through more compound exercises that require the participation of more muscle groups, especially the core muscles.


Here are some videos with exercises you can do both at the gym and at home:

Hanging leg raises: With this exercise you will be able to develop your abs to make them strong, you will be increasing your strength, power and flexibility and at the same time improving in weighted chin-ups


Landmine Rotations: Build strength and stability in the core. Helps prevent lower back pain. You work your obliques a lot, so carry the weight well.

Dumbbell V-Ups: Strength training move that, if done correctly, fully engages your abdominal muscles. This exercise works your entire core and challenges your abs, obliques, and back muscles.


Or try these variations of plank at home, if you don't have any equipment or you don't go to the gym:


Benefits of having a STRONG CORE:

  • Increases flexibility: exercises for the core stabilize the lower back. With a stable back, stress and tension disappear, leading to a greater range of motion and increased flexibility.

  • Reduces back pain: Core strength is also very important when we talk about weight lifting. Strong abs protect your back muscles, thus reducing your chances of injury.

  • Improve balance, coordination and posture: When you perform exercises for the muscles of the core, this stimulates a particular area in the brain called the cerebellum, which influences coordination, spatial awareness and balance.

Make sure to work your core at least 2-3 days a week, at least 2 exercises and 2 sets of each.
