The core is the torso of the body that incorporates muscles of the abdomen and the middle and lower back. Gaining core strength involves a collection of workouts that would stabilize and strengthen these muscles.


Here Are 8 Workouts To Have A Rock-Solid Core:    

•    Side Plank: Place your elbow at a right angle just under the shoulder, straighten your hips and back and contract the glutes. Hold the position for 30 seconds and repeat with the other arm.
