Common causes of failing to strengthen your core

The lack of core flexibility can be attributed firstly to improper exercise habits and insufficient warm-ups, leading to tension and decreased flexibility in core muscles. Aging-related changes in muscles, characterized by decreased elasticity and muscle shortening, also significantly reduce core flexibility. Additionally, stress and excessive tension impact the core muscles, making them stiffer and less flexible. To address these causes, effective measures include proper warm-ups and cool-downs, stress management techniques, and a balanced exercise program.

Hold the pose while taking deep breaths.

Repeat on the other side.

Ardha Pincha Mayurasana, or Dolphin Pose, strengthens the arms, shoulders, and core. Begin on your hands and knees. Lower your elbows to the floor, keeping them directly under your shoulders. Lift your hips up and back, forming an inverted 'V' shape with your body. Keep your head between your arms, looking towards your legs. Press your heels towards the ground for a hamstring stretch.
