What is core strength? It’s a buzz phrase that’s thrown around by many of us; coaches, athletes, trainers all refer to the need for a strong core but what exactly does that refer to?

We’ll peel back the layers and explain in a moment but if you’re worrying whether you have a core or not, please don’t, as if you’re able to stand upright without external support then you have at least some core muscles working.

If you want to know how this important set of muscles works and what you can do to make them stronger then Heather is here to help!
