As I work through my calf setback, I have been spending more time working on the core area. Why? I have (had) no idea! Coincidence? Maybe? Sure, I have always kept the midsection involved in the routine consistently, but over the past few months I have tripled my efforts. Is my posture getting better? I think so… maybe a coincidence? I used to have a nagging, lower-back ache that would sneak in occasionally…coincidence. Where did the little pest go?
Two solid core exercises:
Bicycle Crunches – Fit in 4 one minute sets and the burn will set in!
Planks - work in 3 or 4 one minute holds!
Do a few sets during the commercials …time to work the core!
Is it all a bunch of coincidences, or possibly an increase in core activity is part of a healthy solution!
