Core exercise advice

Adding some core work to your fitness program will not only help to decrease any back pain that's seen but it will also help to promote a tight, lean mid-section. Core work is best done using some type of device that will reduce the stability of your body. Good examples of these include exercise balls, bosu balls, half bosu balls, or balance beams. By reducing your stability, all the muscles that comprise the core will have to work harder to ensure you remain in balance.

Core stability
When working on your core stability, it's important to first focus on squeezing and contracting the core muscles in order to recruit the muscles, and then adding slow movements while maintaining the position of the lumbar spine.
