For this week’s workout we are working on strengthening our back and core areas which play an important part in providing balance and stability for us on a daily basis.
Our back and core muscles get used everyday and probably more than we realize. Simple activities like sitting up in a chair, walking up and down stairs, getting into a car etc all deal with using these muscles.
Having a strong back helps with lifting heavier objects and standing up straight. Strong core muscles help us get out of bed, move around unexpected objects while walking or jogging and many more scenarios.
This workout focuses on working these muscles in a relaxed seated position which will make it easy for you to try at home using a sturdy chair. Also optional is the use of a playground ball which you can substitute using a folded towel.
As always only perform movements that feel comfortable for you and never force anything that causes you pain or discomfort. And of course remember to drink lots of water.
Have a great workout!
