Whether you’re a Ninja, climber, or a marathon runner, having a strong core is important for good posture, endurance, and staying injury-free. And it’s about more than having a six-pack—your core supports your entire body. Ab muscles stabilize every single movement we make, from walking to twisting to bending. Lower back injuries are the most common result of weak core muscles, but you can injure your shoulders, hips, or knees, too.
So if you don’t already have a dedicated core workout and need to get started, or you’d like some new ideas, try a few of these exercises with Tiana “Sweet T” Webberley.
