8 Moves to Build Rock Solid Core

Icy sidewalks. Uneven pavement. High heels. Even the non-clumsy among us stumble almost daily. Many people trip all the time, on the treadmill, or over dumbbells at the gym. But because some are constantly working on their balance, it’s no big deal they can recover without falling.

Staying steady on your feet requires more diligence as the years go by, thanks in part to age-related muscle loss. Muscle holds your joints and bones in place, so if you’re not fighting that battle to keep your muscle mass, you’re looking at a decrease in stability. But thankfully, there are plenty of exercises you can do to work on your balance.

Balance involves your core muscles the ones surrounding your trunk. But other body parts come into play, too, including your feet and ankles. Your core will keep you upright when you slip on a patch of ice, but if you roll an ankle on rock, a strong core won’t help much. You’ll need strong, stable ankles.

Try the below ultimate core sculpting, balance-building routine. Doing it 2 to 3 times a week or doing a few of the exercises each day will work wonders. Try it as a warm-up or cool-down to your regular workout, or even on its own.
