The core is the heart of our body. It is made up of a set of muscles and is essential for ensuring stability, controlling posture and avoiding back pain and possible injury. It is therefore important to train the core to make it more stable and strong. In our article we explain what the core is, how to train it and what not to do. Furthermore, iso-inertial machines have a great importance in functional core training. We talked about it with one of our collaborators, Pedro Sebastián, Doctor of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences and Technical Physical and Sports Activity and gave us a series of tips on how to get a strong core and improve performance and health.

The word core refers to the core of the body, to the set of muscle groups of the abdominal corset that provide us with lumbopelvic stability and favor the optimal transfer of forces from the lower part to the upper part of the body (David, Terrien, & Petitjean , 2015).
KOREAS The main muscles that make up the core are: transverse, internal and external abdominal obliques, rectus abdominis, multifidus muscle, square of the loins, paraspinal muscles, pelvic floor muscles, large and medium buttocks.
All these muscles form a perfect gear in which they must act in perfect synergy to protect one of the most delicate areas of our body: the vertebral column. This is the structure that supports loads on all planes and from all axes: axial load, stresses, rotations and / or combinations of the previous ones.
The core guarantees stability to the body during routine activities, whether it is a daily action such as opening a door or performing an athletic gesture (McGill, 2015). This stability can protect against many injuries especially with regards to the spine. In addition, where there is an abnormality in the back such as a protrusion, scoliosis or an oversize increase in the physiological curves of the back, central muscle work can generate a more upright position and improve postural hygiene. This avoids the pain of certain pathologies.
