That's it. <br><br>Functional core training is simply teaching and conditioning your core to work with you in everyday life--and for your workouts. See, without strong core stabilizer muscles, you start arching your low back during squats, rounding your back when you pick up your kids, and twisting in ways you shouldn't be twisting. <br><br>Keeping a strong core helps train you to keep a neutral spine and neck posture throughout all of your activity--and that, is exactly what prevents the injuries you really don't want.  <br><br>Ain't nobody got time for injuries. <br><br>No need to go to a gym to get a strong core though; I've created this simple, but challenging routine to help you integrate some new moves into your routine. It will target core, glutes, and arms.<br><br>I recommend doing 4-8 reps of each move depending on your fitness level. <br><br>All you need are 2 paper plates or frisbees (two hand towels if you are on hardwood flooring) and yourself to get started!</font><br><br><br> </div>
