How many times have you heard the term “engage your core”? Unfortunately, the phrase is often misunderstood. Many do not know what core really encompasses and the word engage does not adequately describe the action you need to perform on your “core”. Engage your core or “tighten your trunk”!
My older brother Mark was in the Marine Corps and has always been into physical fitness. When I was young he used to brace for a punch and have me hit him in the abdomen as hard as I could. I know I was unable to inflict pain because he would “tighten his trunk” into a steel ring of muscles around his middle. The core includes all of the muscles that encase the trunk and run from your shoulders down to your butt!
Engage your core is such an important concept to understand for any type of movement as part of your daily routines or fitness activities.
