Myth #1: Core Strength Is Only About Achieving a Flat Belly

One of the most pervasive myths about core strength is that it’s solely about achieving a flat stomach or six-pack abs.

Myth #2: Core Exercises Are Only for Younger Women

Another misconception is that core exercises are only for younger women or those who are already fit. In reality, core strength is crucial for women of all ages, especially as we get older. Strengthening the core muscles can help prevent injuries, improve posture, and support daily activities, from lifting groceries to playing with grandchildren.
