Causes of Lack of 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.
