Let’s talk about your Transverse Abdominis. This is the muscle that helps you breathe and stabilizes your pelvis and your lower back.
Many people’s TA’s are weak and not firing – Why? Well – sitting, being sedentary, not consciously turning them on and off, pregnancy and surgical procedures (me – 2 c sections).
This can result in fun things (sarcasm) like low back pain, an unstable pelvis, the little pooch in your lower abdomen.
Here’s the deal – you don’t want to walk around constantly sucking your gut in.
That’s not core stability.
What you are looking for is a STRONG CORE all of the time. One that you also have conscious control of.
We’re switching up our exercises for the month!
