Are your core workouts leaving your body feeling worse?

Maybe your back feels tight after doing core exercises. Or maybe there is a zinging that you feel down your leg after working your abs. Or maybe your core doesn’t seem to be getting any stronger despite doing all of the exercises you know how to do.

There are some very simple reasons why this could be happening, and on this week’s episode of the Exercise Is Health® podcast, Julie and Charlie are breaking down what they are and what you can do about it.

The truth is that most core workouts leave your low back and spine vulnerable to injury because they miss the necessary steps to help your core muscles get stronger. However, with some very simple tweaks to what exercises you are doing and how you are doing them, you can completley change this for yourself.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode!
