Core Strengthening with Sehome Core Exercises

Experts at Performance Physical Therapy recommend strengthening your core as a basic route to better fitness and easier recuperation from injuries. The strength of your core often determines if or when you get injured in the first place, especially if your injury happened because of weak or tired muscles. Some of our clients begin a workout routine without focusing on their core and then end up injuring themselves. A strong core can provide better posture and the ability to work out more effectively. We want to share two of our specific Sehome core exercises to help you keep your body in overall good shape.

Core strength is often overlooked, but it is an essential part of a comprehensive workout routine. Once you have strengthened your core, you will be able to perform weight lifting with correct form, lift more weight, and reduce the risk of another injury. The first of our recommended Sehome core exercises is a simple one. The basic plank works your entire core. To perform this move, lie on your stomach. Lift your body off the floor by balancing on your forearms and your toes. Your elbows should be at 90 degrees. Maintain this position while keeping your back straight for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Then relax and repeat.

The second in the list of Sehome core exercises is called the Lying Windmill. While the plank position is basic, this move is much more difficult. Lie on your back while extending your arms. Slowly raise your legs until they are perpendicular to the floor. Now, slowly but steadily lower your legs to the side and back down to the floor. Go as low as you can without touching the floor and then bring them back up. If you can maintain shoulder and back contact with the floor while lowering your legs, then you are doing this move correctly. Repeat this Sehome core exercise on the other side to finish.
