Core stability is the central motor control and muscular capacity of the lumbar-pelvic-thigh to maintain stability of this region against various postural and external forces[ 1 ]. Studies, have been shown different roles of core stability to improve performance; Lewarchik tend to stabilize the core in footballers not observed significant using the stability exercise program and plyometric[ 2 ]. Kahle have been shown improved postural control after six weeks core stability training program in healthy and young adults[ 3 ]. Accordingly, there are different results of research, and important training on postural stability in the football skills.

Back injuries happen for a variety of reason, including improper lifting, falling or traumatic accidents. Depending upon the severity of the injury, some people require surgery along with rehab and therapy. Rehabilitation is an integral aspect of spinal health to ensure proper posture, core stability, movement awareness and muscular strength surrounding the spinal discs. The core is comprised of the axial skeleton and the muscles surrounding the spinal column. In this region, 30 muscles attach or originate between the spinal column and the abdomen, low back, pelvis and hips. These muscles transfer and receive forces between the upper and lower limbs. Therefore, core strength is vital for nearly every movement experienced within our daily lives.

Developing core strength is essential for everyday health and well-being, as a strong core protects the spine, reduces back pain, enhances movement patterns, and improves balance, stability and posture. There are many methods for developing core strength, as well as various pieces of equipment that assist in that development. However, there are plenty of exercises that require only body weight or basic equipment. The most important thing to remember when training the core is to avoid using momentum and instead perform each exercise with awareness so that the core is actually braced or engaged. The following seven core stability exercises can be added to your current workout routine.
