How and Why to Strengthen

                                      Your Core Muscles

To get ready for swimsuit season, you are probably doing a lot of targeted exercises to get in shape. You are likely focusing on your abs and thighs the most and doing what you can to drop a few extra pounds before you have to squeeze into that swimsuit. There is a huge factor that many people are missing out on as they are getting ready for summer, however, and to their own detriment. That factor is the importance of core strengthening. 

What Exactly Is the Core? 

Your core muscles are a group of muscles running down the centre of your body. These include your abdominal muscles, back muscles, and your pelvis. All of these muscles contribute to your overall balance and strength. 

How Does Core Strengthening Help? 

Core strengthening helps on many levels. At its most basic, your core strength comes into play in everyday activities such as lifting your groceries and vacuuming your house. Your core is your centre of balance and strength for almost everything you do, especially when it comes to working out and getting in shape. A strong core can help you be more successful with all your workouts, as it gives you the best canvas to work from. 

How Can I Strengthen My Core? 

Core strengthening exercises are the best way to get your core in shape. These exercises will not only improve your core strength, but they will also help you tone your abdominal muscles, back, butt, and thighs so you can make big strides toward your summer fitness goals. Even better, these exercises can all be done from home so there is no gym membership required.

 

Core Exercises 

  1. Yoga and Pilates

Yoga and Pilate’s type exercises are the most popular workout routines that are aimed toward building a strong and healthy core. You can find yoga and Pilate’s videos online, on DVD, or even learn poses from books and magazines. These are easy to do from home and most routines do not even require any sort of equipment. 

  1. Planking

Planks are an exercise that you might find difficult in the beginning, but as you core strengthens you will find it easier over time. Planking is great for the whole body, from your arms all the way down through your legs and is actually touted as being a better exercise for your abs than crunches.  

Start by getting into push-up position on the floor, but rest on your arms at 90-degree angles. Straighten your whole body out, through to your feet up on your toes. Use your core muscles to hold the position for as long as possible. Each day, hold a little longer. 

  1. Balance ball

Using a balance ball helps you to focus on your core muscles when doing certain exercises. You can use a balance ball to do push-ups, crunches, and more. Even simply sitting on a balance ball instead of a chair helps you strengthen your core muscles during the day. 

  1. V-sit

Sit on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Lean back to a 45-degree angle and hold your arms out straight beside you. Slowly lift your feet off the ground, using your core to keep yourself steady. Extend your legs out so that your body forms a ìVî. Hold this position as long as possible, using your extended arms to help maintain your balance. 

  1. Tucks

Start in the same position as the v-sit, leaning back at the 45-degree angle and arms straight out beside you. Extend your legs out just like in the v-sit, but then bring them back to your body, not resting them on the floor. Repeat this motion ten times, rest, and then repeat. 

  1. Bicycles

Starting in crunch position with your hands behind your ears, reach your elbow to the opposite knee, extending the other leg out. Repeat the motion, alternating sides, and working your legs as if riding a bicycle. Continue the motion for an extended period of time, at least 30 seconds, before resting and then repeating. 

Core strengthening is where great workouts and a great body start.

If you want to get toned and fit for summer or any and all seasons,

core exercises are what you want to focus on.

When doing so, motor homes not only provide you with a mode of transportation, but they also provide you with affordable overnight accommodations. 

In addition to being great for travelling, motor homes are also nice for camping. Camping is a fun recreational activity that many retirees enjoy. The only problem with camping when you get older in age, it may be a little bit more difficult to do so.  It is not uncommon for the hard ground to cause you pain or discomfort.  If you enjoy camping, but you are tired of camping in a traditional camping tent, a motor home may be perfect for you.  Many public campgrounds have spacious camping spots designed for motor homes of all sizes.  In addition to camping in a public campground, you may also enjoy just camping in your backyard.

For starters, you can decide to buy a new motor home or a used motor home.  If you are looking for a dependable motor home, like one that can get you across the country, you may feel more comfortable buying a brand-new motor home.  On the other hand, if you are on a budget, you may want to buy a new motor home.  In all honesty, the decision is yours to make. 

In keeping with the buying of a motor home, you will find that motor homes come in a number of different size, shapes, and styles. What does this mean for you?

In short, there are a number of different reasons as to why motor homes are perfect for retirees, just like you.

If you are still unsure as to whether or not you should buy a motor home, you may want to think about renting one. 

Renting a motor home is a nice, fun, and affordable way to see if you would love living the motor home life.

 

For All You Retired Folks

 

Working people frequently ask retired people

what they do to make their days interesting.

Well, for example, the other day the wife

and I went into town and went into a shop.

We were only in there for about 5 minutes.

When we came out there was a cop writing

out a parking ticket.

We went up to him and I said,  

"Come on man, how about giving a senior

citizen a break?"

He ignored us and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a dumb “something or other”.

He glared at me and started writing another ticket

for having worn tires.

So, Mary called him a dead head.

He finished the second ticket and put it

on the windshield with the first.

Then he started writing a third ticket.

This went on for about 20 minutes.  

The more we abused him the more tickets

he wrote.

Just then our bus arrived.

We try to have a little fun each day

now that we're retired.

It's important at our age.
