6 Reasons (Besides Great Looks) To Strengthen Your Abdominals
Tags: stomach, abdominals, strengthen, abs, strength, reasons, muscles, sports
According to sixwise.com, a flat stomach and well-defined six pack will certainly get you some attention on the beach, but having strong abdominal muscles goes way beyond physical appearance. Abdominal muscles are part of your body's core -- a group of 29 muscles around your trunk and pelvis that make up your center of gravity -- and they're necessary to support your back, control your movement and even help you breathe. Strong abs are much more than skin deep: they support and protect your back, help prevent injuries, and improve your posture. Strengthening your abdominal muscles will, indeed, make a trim stomach more defined, but it's also one of the most important muscle groups to keep strong, and here's why.
|1. ||Protect your back and reduce back pain.|
|2. ||Improve your posture.|
|3. ||Feel less fatigued.|
|4. ||Lift things (like your infant) easier.|
|5. ||Protect yourself from injury.|
|6. ||Perform sports better.|
