Why is core strength important?

Many would argue that a sculpted torso is the main benefit of keeping one’s midsection in shape. However, core strength is much more than having a coveted six-pack. So why is core strength important?

There are many misconceptions about what constitutes core strength. A common belief is that the term “core” only relates to abdominal muscles. However, all of the muscles surrounding the midsection make up the core, including the obliques at the side of the torso, the pelvic floor and the hip flexors that flex the leg and knee up towards the body.
