Video: Get more core (Part 3): Trunk, leg strengthening

Every-day motions are created by the ripple effect of muscles connecting your upper and lower body, originating in your core muscles, located deep within your trunk.

Core muscles extend from the base of your head to your pelvis and help coordinate movement to your arms, legs and spine. These muscles, if strong and stable, reduce your chance for injuries and contribute to balance, coordination and better posture.

Focus on your trunk and legs

In our third video, a Marshfield Clinic physical therapist will show you five basic core muscle exercises focusing on your legs, torso and butt. You can do these exercises at home or at work to tone and strengthen these important muscles.


Get more core every day. Perform each exercise for 10-20 repetitions.

Check out our Get More Core video series on Shine365.  You can also view the playlist on Youtube

If you want to incorporate these core exercises into your fitness program or sports training, consider working with a trained instructor and begin slowly.
