5 Exercises To Strengthen Your Core

Everyone is struggling to keep a balance between work-life and personal life and, even in that, is trying his/her best to take out time for health and fitness. You may love jogging in the wee hours of the morning, or plug-in indoor treadmill or the electric cycle and sweat until your tee is completely soaked. But often we forget certain exercises that strengthen our core. Strengthening of our core (meaning, the internal muscles, and joints of your mid-section) is nothing but boosting your stamina and readying yourself for sprint! Here are five such exercises that will help you strengthen your core.
