Understanding The Core
The core is nothing more, but a collection of complex muscles, which as according to Dr. Struart McGill, is made up of the lumbar spine, the muscles of the abdominal wall, the quadratus lumborum, and the back extensors. They act as an isometric or dynamic stabilizer for movement, transfer force from an extreme to another, or even initiate movement itself.
