These are great exercises to start off with when learning proper core engagement. They may seem easy and simple but they are challenging when you do them correctly.
These simple movements will help in optimal core function and strength. Helping prevent injuries from occurring during any daily activity/movement.
If you haven't already, check out the "How to Properly Engage the Core" blog post before completing the exercises. You can access this page by clicking here. It goes into depth on explaining proper core engagement techniques, where to start and what to look for in proper core engagement.
I recommend everyone start with beginner exercises before going further, as many people do not understand the importance of proper core engagement. It is important that we understand how to engage the core properly and why we do it.
This is a great place to start in understanding how to connect to the core muscles.
Remember to keep your back flat on the ground during all core exercises and contracting the core from the pelvic floor to the rib cage. Also paying attention to coning or bulging of the linea alba and abdominal muscles.
