Flexibility is a person's ability to perform exercises with a large amplitude. Also, flexibility is the absolute range of motion in the joint or a number of joints, which is achieved in an instantaneous effort. Flexibility is important in some sports disciplines, especially in rhythmic gymnastics. In man, flexibility is not the same in all joints. The practitioner, who easily performs the longitudinal twine, can hardly perform a cross-twine. In addition, depending on the type of training, the flexibility of different joints can increase. Also, for a particular joint, the flexibility can be different in different directions.

Strengthening of the muscular corset is necessary for every person, since this group of muscles ensures the correct position of the spine and maximum protection of the internal organs.

It is important to understand that the main role in such protection is played by deep muscles of the back, chest and abdomen.

Posture disorders and many diseases often occur against the weakened muscle corset, which is why decided to tell what exercises are best for strengthening muscle groups that form a muscular corset.

Self-test before strengthening the muscular corset

Before you start directly to strengthen the muscle corset, it is better to check what condition it is at the moment. Later, such a self-test can be conducted to assess the effectiveness of the exercises.

Method 1

  • Lie down with your belly, tear your hands and feet off the floor (at the same time!).
  • Drawing the navel, stretch the muscles of the cortex, bend the back and lift the rib cage.

In this position, you need to hold out a minute. If you can not do it, it's time to think seriously about strengthening the muscular corset.

Method 2

  • Stand on all fours so that your legs at right angles form right angles.
  • Look in front of you and, stretching your neck, pull out your left hand and your right foot (or vice versa) forward and backward respectively.

The purpose of the check is to keep the balance. If you did not succeed, it's time to work on muscle stabilizers.
