Core Exercise Equipment - Building A Stronger Core Muscle Foundation
Abs, Hips and Back.

Its more than just abdominal exercises. The Core muscle group relates to the muscles bounded by the abdominal wall, the pelvis, the lower back and the diaphragm. What makes them so important is the group"s ability to stabilize the body during movement. This group of muscles is also important because they play a vital role in the movement of the body and transfer muscle energy from the large muscles to smaller the muscles. You cannot perform major body movement without using your core muscle group. You can think of your core muscle group as an indicator of your bodies overall strength indicator. Using core training equipment contributes to better balance, improved core strength and flexibility, and increased stamina for workouts and everyday activities.

Why Are Core Workouts Important?

The primary muscles involved include the transversus abdominis, the internal and external obliques, the quadratus lumborum and the diaphragm. The diaphragm"s connections to the front, back, and sides of the ribcage as well as to the lumbar spine make it a key core muscle integral to stabilization of the torso and providing stability for moving and lifting. If you could view the inside of your body prior to actually moving, you would see that your core muscles actually move milliseconds before the other muscles. This movement speed is why professional athletes spend a lot of time training with core exercise equipment. Their livelihood depends on them being faster, stronger and more flexible than their competition. They realize that they can only be as fast and strong as this group of muscles and core strength training is an important component of their workout routine.

You don"t have to be a professional athlete to benefit from the use of core exercise equipment. In fact a strong core muscle group is essential for everyone. For the non professional athlete having a stronger core muscle group can help us with day to day living. Just think of all the physical activities you do every day at home and at work. Your day is filled with bending, lifting, twisting, carrying and reaching overhead - all of these movements pass through the core muscles. When you get older, the lack of having a strong core really becomes a safety issue. The core muscles help you with everyday activities, which as you age become more and more difficult. Simple things we do as part of our independent living regiment grooming, dressing, sitting in a chair or simply standing still are just a few of the many daily actions that rely on your core. For senior citizens balance and stability does become a safety issue and not taking care of this important muscle group with even the most basic core exercise equipment can increase your risk of falling because these muscles have become weaker and balancing the body more difficult.

Activeforever can help you on your journey of good health - we have an amazing collection of core exercise equipment for all fitness levels, including balance boards, abdominal trainers, sit-up benches, kettlebell weights and more.

Core Exercise Equipment for the Beginner

Here are two favorite pieces of core exercise equipment for the beginner. Core Stretch - This piece of exercise equipment is easy enough for the beginner, yet with a few twists can become very challenging.

The Core Stretch helps keep your back, shoulders, hips, and legs muscles loose & flexible. CoreStretch is an innovative design to achieve better stretch in your legs, shoulders, and back. Proper use elongates the spine rather than forcing your back to curve - stretching your core. CoreStretch allows you to stretch yourself back into shape as it works your ligaments, muscles and tendons in your back, as well as ones in your legs and arms that work in accordance with your back.

The Runner up is not to an actual piece of core exercise equipment rather it"s a core workout DVD. Chair Aerobics for Everyone DVD & Videos is a DVD series is that literally everyone can do.
