Summer is officially in full swing with our 90+ degree days. Hopefully, you’re enjoying the sunshine and spending a little extra time near the water to stay cool. If you’ve been wanting to improve your swimwear look for your days at the beach, in the pool, or out on the boat, strengthening your core is the perfect place to start.Why Strengthen Your Core?
When you think core muscles, your stomach (abdomen) likely comes to mind. However, a strong core is so much more. This group of muscles contains your obliques (muscles on each side of your midsection), the transverse abdominis (your deepest ab muscles), your pelvic floor, the muscles surrounding your spine, and even your glutes. Your core is the center of your body, and it supports much of what you do as well (think sitting, standing, walking, lifting, etc.).
