Exercising you core is much more than trying to do a bunch of sit-ups. In fact, when you think of your core, include not only your abdominal muscles, but also your pelvis, low and mid back, hips and neck. These muscles work together like a big girdle, to support and protect your spine. When strengthened, they help to improve your overall balance, posture, stability and coordination. Here are 5 great exercises designed to target your core. Aim to do these exercises fifteen times each, three times a week.
