Core Vs. Abs: What's The Difference?
When most people talk about getting "abs" they tend to refer to the rectus abdominis, which is the front of your abdomen.
However, your core is much more than your "six pack". It's the center of your body, it helps stabilize your body during functional movements. A strong core will help you get a better balance, better posture and it can even help reduce back pain.
Your core is composed of:
- Rectus abdominis: the front of your abdomen.
- Internal and external obliques: the side of your abdomen.
- Erector spinae: group of muscles and tendons around the spine (lower back).
- Transverse abdominis: the deepest ab muscles around your spine.
