I completely agree with this article. I know for sure that exercise helps in many ways, both mental and physical. When I stop running from my regular routine, I notice my mood isn’t as positive and physically I feel I have less energy to take me through the day.

We know that exercise has great benefits for our heart but, we rarely think about the benefits for the human brain. Exercise is becoming a therapy for those afflicted by this condition.  For the rest of us, it is great to know that we can also benefit by “growing the gray matter” with regular, daily exercise.  Thanks for the great information!

Back pain can occur because of an imbalance between the strength of the abdomen and back muscles. A large number of muscle groups are engaged in providing the spine the strength to support the body. In case of the abs muscles being weak, it exerts strain on the back resulting in back pain. Toning abs provides your back with flexibility it needs to support to the spine. Strong abdominal and back muscles can overcome any type of back pain, especially the ones which are caused by soft tissue injury or back muscle strain.When exercising, we tend to ignore the core area. The back and abs are made up of several groups of muscles. For a fitter abs and back, its important to work on each group of muscle. The benefits of toning your abs results in stronger back muscles, increased flexibility of the spine and better support for the body. You can also bring down the severity and frequency of that back pain you have been complaining of.
