Core exercises are an essential part of an all-round fitness program. Apart from the sit-ups and weight lifting, exercises to strengthen the core are often neglected. In case you are wondering what are the benefits of core exercises. Let us tell you that they get your core muscles around your lower back, hips, abdomen, and pelvis in better shape. When these body parts are in harmony, it leads to better balance and stability. Not just sports but many other physical activities depend on stable core muscles. However, building core strength is not just about your physical appearance. A strong core also prevents injuries as well as back pain. On the other hand, a weak core can lead to fatigue, poor posture, and less endurance.
Maintaining your core health doesn't call for hitting the gym for hours. All you have to do is take out five minutes. Yes, you read it right. Celebrity fitness instructor Yasmin Karachiwala, in an Instagram post, talks about a 5-minute workout, which is better than no workout at all. Watch Yasmin Karachiwala's five minute work-out plan:
