Core Workouts

SF Core Workouts strengthen the center of your body, where the energy and power of the body is generated and revitalized. Essential to the functioning of your entire body, the core muscles also support and stabilize the spine. Increasing the strength of the core also helps relieve and prevent back pain. Core workouts also help to improve posture, stability, balance and flexibility. Core exercises that you can learn at Studiomix also burn calories, increase the metabolism, and help to build muscle mass.

Core workouts strengthen the ability of the spinal cord to send messages to the muscles throughout your body. Building the core is important, as weak core muscles  limit the amount of strength and muscle you can build in your workouts. Strong supporting muscles around the spine help to reduce lower-back pain. Core workouts also reduce the risk of injury to the lower back from lifting heavy weights or other strenuous activities.

Core exercises that you can practice at a gym in San Francisco feature training for the obliques, rectus abdominis, buttocks, lats, glutes and lower back muscles. The abdominal area includes muscles close to the surface of your body, as well as the muscles closer to the organs and spine, which stabilize the torso as the body moves. The transverse abdominis muscle wraps around the entire lower torso, stabilizing the lower back, hips and pelvis. At Studiomix gym in San Francisco, you can receive training in deep core exercises to work the transverse abdominis muscle, as well as all of the muscles needed to build a strong foundation.

Some of the exercises that can be practiced in SF core workouts at Studiomix include:

  • Overhead Lifting – utilizes the core to stabilize the body, and to generate the force needed to lift a heavy weight, while also controlling the movements. Using the core in overhead lifting lowers the risk of injury, in comparison to lifting with just the upper body.
  • Chop and Lift – promotes core stability through the movement of arms and shoulders in a diagonal pattern across the body, while the torso is kept still.
  • Half-Kneeling Chop – these core exercises in San Francisco classes isolate the transverse abdominis, and also works the glutes and back muscles.
  • Stability Ball – increases abdominal, transverse abdominis, and lower back strength. Adding intensity to calisthenic workouts, the stability ball increases muscular strength and endurance. Adding more challenge to workouts, it also increases the amount of calories burned.
  • Deadlifts – train the core muscles to provide better support for the spine under heavy loads.
  • Lower Body Circuit – strengthens and tones the core and lower body at the same time, as the core stabilizes the body, while the legs and hips move. Lower body circuit training involve a series of exercises that are practiced with little to no rest time between the exercises. This helps to increase stamina and endurance, as well as burn calories faster.
