“I want a tighter core”

I hear that A LOT! Sadly I find most people don’t even know what their core is? Usually it’s abs people want. Better abs is what these people are looking for and that’s mostly diet.

IF you are truly looking to train your core here are the muscles and exercises you should be doing;
Trapezius for posture 

SHRUG
Latissimus Dorsi for stabilization 

PULL UPS
Gluteus Maximus Gluteus Medius for sprinting and balance

SQUAT
Rectis Abdominis, Transverses Abdominis for bending and twisting and acting as a girdle keeping you tight and aligned 

WOOD CHOPPERS
Hip Adductors, Keep you stable and aligned HIP FLEX

Quadratus Lumborum, lower back

SIDE PLANK
Spinal Eredgors Runs along your spine stand up straight and rotate 

REVERSE CRUNCH
THAT’S your core and that’s how you work it!
